Thread: A Land Rover question.

  1. #1

    A Land Rover question.

    If I were in the market to buy a Defender 90 and had a 4-6k budget, would I be better off with a late 300Tdi or an Early Td5?

    it depends if you want to fix it yourself or not both are good only trouble I have found with td5s is eletrics and for your budget you would get a really good 300 but not so good td5 hope that helps

    late 300 tdi do not touch an early td5 unless you want heart ache and misery i know ive owned the odd few


    a low milage late 300 tdi will still hold a good price but it will be easier to work on in the work shop as the electrics are old skool andthings like fuel pumps, front wiring harness, oil ingressiion in to the ecu, electic throttle control, wont happen to it because they arent on it unlike the TD5

    I owned one 2000 td5 for 6 minths and replaced rear fuel pump approx 600 and a fly wheel (twice ) and three starter motors thankfully these were allunder warranty at amain dealers

    A late 300tdi would be my call .....my stalking partner has a td5 that he's spent a fortune on , its a never ending nightmare of little problems that add up . I know the post is about Landrover's but get a jap wagon & save the aggro ...

    Either a Hilux or an L200
    Anything but a landrover
    If you insist though,, neither, find a 200tdi

    have you ever owned a landrover before? if not then you will have to spend the money and suffer the heart ache because you won't believe the people who tell you just how unreliable they are !

    once you've done it and learnt your expensive lesson you can go and buy Toyota and live happily ever after ............
    Right where's those stones , I'll start !

    who needs it to be an "awesome off road" anything. Have a std disco 3 and it does its job - merely stating a fact rather than be aggressive or getting in anyones face !

    Dont do what I did.... Buy an old V8 90 and then spend 6K keeping it on the road !!!!!

    Worth it ..... S**T Yeah !
