    If it's like anything else book a flight to the USA and buy some there, they will be cheap as chips. The import duty then maybe a problem. P38 spares Gen III are £930.00 a set. Bloody ridiculous money.

    I struggle to believe they sell any at that money.

    The only reason anyone buys them i would suspect is for the extra travel for off roading. Which also requires other mods. So basically in lots of cases the bags shocks and sensor arm mods will cost more than the car is worth.

    I'd like to believe that, except almost all the off roady p38's I've seen have been on coils. There was a blue one on YT a few years back that was heavily modded with Gen 3's and custom spring platforms, think I saw it in the carpark at one of the big LR shows. It's the only p38 that I know that runs or was running Gen 3's.

    Personally I'd like them for the enhanced fast road use. I lament the fact LR never fitted ACE to the late model p38's. And a p38 is certainly a bit roly poly compared to an ACE equipped D2. The Gen 3's in the lowered mod should help avoid some of this.
