Hi All,
I have just bought a really nice looking Disco 3 2.7.
I am amazed how dynamic is that car, those guys did really good job with combining engine and transmission.
I found the forum while searching information about dipping mirrors, liked it and decided to join.
Cheers from BG!
Nick

Hello from hot down under..

Our old 1995 Disco 2 slipped a cylinder liner while towing our small c/van on Christmas holls travelling along the coast west towards Adelaide.. We were at a remote town called Beachport pop ~850. I had reasonable advice the Landi could get us home (about 1200 km) but you know the feeling..

Turned up at the local shop asking about 4wd of any description.. Landcruiser 80 series got the 'bulletproof' tick.. yes there was one available.. cheep but not in any shape to go. The shopkeeper produced a tablet add for a white Disco3 and the owner lived 1km down the road. I had much earlier admired the D3's is saw but a bit expensive.. I had never paid more than $12500 for any vehicle including a 7 tonne Dodge truck.. Quick mental arithmetic said max $20000 and 200K Km's when the owner suddenly turned up in town right opposite the shop he confirmed $23000 negotiable and 195K Kms.. Looking good..

It was in a shed covered in cobwebs and a bit of surface rust (sea air) on exposed solid steel parts.. he showed the history.. one owner company full service.. knocking front lower wishbones.. warning to change timing belt at 180K Kms then engine replaced at 185K Kms due to belt failure ($19070 for motor with 2500Kms).. then in 2015 replace air compressor and filter.. finally he would take $20000.. Done deal.. He also supplied set of front lower rubber bushings.

It didn't all end there.. great drive home but on a second hol to south east cost it shut down to reduced power crawl home mode.. turned out to be a blocked fuel filter.. but not knowing that and suspecting fuel contamination we had it towed to Melbourne Landrover specialists for thorough going over.. ($5300 worth of going over included change of front lower wishbones)

Latest plan just before Christmas 2017 I had to get an aircraft trailer up to Wangarratta (200Ks) and pick up my little Jabiru SupaPup to get it down here for some work.. A whistle started which developed into a full throaty roar and obvious loss of turbo boost.. otherwise it cruised at 80k pulling the load ok..

When the engine was replaced unknown to the owner they had not replaced the special bracket that supports the exhaust crossover pipe at the back of the motor from drivers side to passenger side.. Its a very sophisticated bit of kit but without supports after 20000kms it fatigue cracked on the passenger side.. pressing on (as I felt I had to) unfortunately melted a couple of plastic covers over the fuel pump belt etc.. so $5800 later I now have it back again.. There was nothing wrong with the design it was only faulty maintenance so that is just the price you pay for that.

Hello

Hello to everyone out there.

My other half Bonnie is now the proud owner of a Discovery 3 and is very pleased with it. I have managed to get her away from an unhealthy obsession with VW's !!

I have owned a Land Rover in one form or another all of my driving life with my passion being Defenders.

Nice to come on board.

Alan and Bonnie.

Hello

Hi there, thanks for the warm welcome here in the forum Smile I'm about to get a D3 from a colleague of mine, around March, and I'm very keen on that.
Up to now I drive a VW Touran, but me and my family like to visit Scotland and Iceland by our own car, so I decided to buy that D3, which is quite an occasion, as I know that my colleague took care for that car.
I'd like to customise some parts of that vehicle, e.g. another radio, some extra lights and protection for the body...So, I think I'll find a lot of important information here - thanks to all for their contributes Smile
Best, Randolph

Hi,

I've caught the Disco3 bug. I don't even own one! (yet). I've lived in London for the last ten years, but would love a Disco to take back to the sticks of the South West of England to visit family, farms, moors and clifftops. Would also like to take it to Europe with the family.
We have three children, and possibly a fourth in the not-too-distant future. We're all tall and really need some more space in a vehicle.
I love everything about it, but I've owned a Toyota for the last six years and it hasn't broken down once. I am a bit apprehensive about the reliability of a Disco3. Is it the sort of thing that is ok as long as you know how to select a secondhand one, and look after it well, or can even a relative expert be caught out?
Hoping for good news..... Whistle
Thanks!

welcome!

A well tended to and “known” D3 or D4 is certainly better than a random one from the lot. There are some on sale here every now and then, you might be interested in looking at the for sale forums.

That said, some parts tend to be more expensive than others to fix. Smile

New to D3 swapped from a Defender 90 300 tdi

After outgrowing my boy racer days I've clocked up more than 10 years as a Defender 90 owner and last week did a straight swap from a very good 300Tdi 90 for a 54 plate D3. The defender was fairly standard apart from winch, Insa-Turbo tyres and a snorkel. D90 was used daily for local and distance stuff, towing my caravan plus lots of off-road stuff. Heard all the anti D3 scar stories, especially 'DON'T DO IT' so it remains to be seen if I made the right decision.
Yesterday (less than 1 week) it went into limp mode but cleared of itself after switching off and restarting. Priority list is get plugged in for a fault code list, engine oil and filter change, gearbox oil & filter change and after scanning these pages, clean MAP sensor. Wish me luck.

Hi
I’ve been registered on here for a while gathering info before I make the leap from my faithful D2 TD5. Well this weekend is when I pick our 2013 D4 up.
Cheers Tim
