    Default Am I going to regret buying this auction Land Rover...

    Hi guys, so I just bought a Disco II on an online auction. I've been scouring the online auctions for a while looking for a usable 4x4 for around 50k. Was also considering a fixer-upper from SMD. Found this Disco on the Burchmores Cape Town auction and bought it sight unseen. Paid 52k for it (+ VAT & comm = 62k). It seems in good nick from the pictures. I live in Jhb, so my BIL in Cape Town went to fetch it today. It wouldn't start again after he stopped for petrol - dead battery. He managed to jump start it and got home. He says it's running fine with no obvious faults. I'll be sending it up to Jhb with a vehicle transport service.
    I was wondering if anyone on the forum knows it - would love to get any history on it. It's a 2003 V8 ES A/T with around 160000km. Current registration CA71742 and according to an online VIN search previous reg was PCP673GP.

    Congratulations on your purchase. It looks like it has been well taken care of, if it's a 2003 model. Very good condition indeed.
