I'm now in a disco 3 2.7 for winter as with all the flooding Cornwall is getting in winter I don't want to be without a 4x4.

It was a show truck for a roof tent company so looks like it's been off road but it has barely ever seen anything other than a trade show.

I've taken the awning and roof rack off, considering putting the roof rack back on.

Ordered disco 4 lights and front grill as it's looking a tad dated. Also trying to get some l405 21" wheels for it.

The rubber strip along the doors don't do it any favours.
I agree, I'll be taking mine off as they are gopping.

I won't be fully colour coding it though as it's a huge chunk of silver.

It wasn't an easy car to colour code because like you say; too much and it's a sea of silver, that was part of the reason I didn't do the door strips.

Here's ours taking a comfort break on its way over the Alps, the huge torque of the SDV6 and flappy paddles made it more fun than expected

UK to Lake Garda via a few days in Switzerland averaged 31 mpg, acceptable

Well it's been a blast. For the first time in 7 years I have no Range Rover on the drive.

I did 45,000 miles up to 145,000 in the last one. The worst and only significant bill was for £1300 for a plastic manifold that sits under lots of shit (technical term!).

In the end it was being used as a commuter tool only by the wife, and it just did not make sense in that role. Plus she told me off for driving it and using her fuel every time I went near it...
