    Hi all a big thanks for all your buying advice,have finally settled on TD5 90 station wagon, and was lucky enough to drop on a tangiers orange & black G4 limited edition with high miles but in very good condition, not for everyone but kinda cool for me!
    Now just need to get it, & start planning what bits I need to restore or add on, so no doubt be on here again soon!

    Does anyone know any history of G4s please? I've found the old expedition websites but looks like only 110 were used, and any 90's were just made for joe public to buy?

    Take the vin number to a LR main dealer and check it's a real G4. It will be worth less if it's not a real G4. I may be able to confirm it's spec on microcat if you pm me the vin number. Don't post it on the forum.

    LR also did 50th anniversary tratters. Peeps copy them and pass them off as originals. Yer has to keep yer wits about yer when buying anything these days.

    Phew...VIN checks out its a real G4 edition, you got me worried! G4 owners club was very helpful, in case anyone else comes across the same concern! Happy motoring.

    Tratters tend to turn orange over the years anyway. Don't forget to put pic's up of yer new purchase. :)
