    Bought another one :D

    52 plate 3 door in dark metallic green (Oxford green was it?), GS spec, 1.8 petrol, 17 inch wheels, 117k on the clock, partial service history including head gasket, cambelt etc. Light protectors, seat covers, load area mat. MOT end April.

    Oh, and original Land Rover radio cassette with CD stacker. Quite impressed with the sound really!!

    Interior and bodywork very very nice. Drives nicely but slight tremor through steering (poss wheel balance). No documentation for 4WD being replaced but its all there and seems to work fine.

    Further testing required and a few things to sort, but very pleased with it for the price.

    very sound advice, also check it as often as you can (not to the point of paranoia though :rolleyes:)

    all these little upgrades and doing things in a certain way will lessen the likelyhood of expensive damage occurring.;)

    JM is the man:cool:

    Funny thing is Freelaner, I've had years of being warned that any minute the old Fleeby will blow HG. Never has (don't care if I'm tempting fate). This has blighted my ownership / viewpoint, which is a shame.

    What's worse than that is when it actually happens :eek:
