I have one.. a pre-production one.

locking rear diff, rear DVD, rear aircon - basically everything.

trying to keep it clean and in factory spec.

everyone should have a V8 at least once in their life.

this is my 4th.. and the best.
 1974 S111 SWB 200di conversion, rag top, bronze green. Known as Munch
2004 D3 V8 HSE in some sort of green.
2001 D2 4.0 V8 ES premium Epsom green - gone, but only round the corner!
1961 S11 SWB marine blue rag top - gone but not forgotten
2000 D2 4.0 V8 ES premium black - gone but not forgotten
1988 RR classic 3.5 V8 green - gone and nearly forgotten
1976 S111 LWB 2.25 diesel truck cab various shades of bronze green - gone and most definitely forgotten

This. Thumbs Up

When as a teenager I lived in the US I wanted (drooled after, really) a vette. Now when Iโ€™m more mature I have no desire for sports cars at all since theyโ€™re not very practical, ride low and fit very little Rolling with laughter

Time to swagger to the petrol pump tomorrow... Whistle

I did my part in our fledgling democracy and cast a vote. Service guarantees citizenship, etc... Thumbs Up

V8s are in the blood, my 3rd car was an SD1, I was 19 at the time, had a sevaral of them till I got the ultimate a red vittese twin plenum which I still own but its on long term loan to another family member as he has a nice dry warm garage for it to live in. The D3 is my second V8 discovery, had a DII 4.0 which was ungraded to 4.6 Very Happy

Filled up today and voted Laughing

Fill up on Sunday and will vote them. But we will have nothing to talk about:

Crankshaft = no
Turbo = no
Cross over pipe = no?
EGR = Doesn't seem to be a problem so no?
Injectors = no
Glow plugs = no
FBH = no
Smoke = no
Oil filter issues / replacement = no
Belt replacement = no
Oil pump = no

While the total addressable market (TAM) - all ever sold globally - for D3 V8 is unknown, we do know the Serviceable Available Market (SAM) - around ~400 accounts on this forum. Current voting gives us a market share of 0.5% of SAM assuming all who voted where V8 owners. Thumbs Up

What needs to happen is an insane marketing blitz and call to action campaigns to increase our mindshare by uniting everyone behind one common goal! Rolling with laughter
