Hello

I have been away for a while in the land of" Landrover" However changes in my life have triggered a need to get me another G.

I miss my past vehicles and wish I still had them all....

Re: Back from the Dark side

Hi Howard

I have been G less since selling my business in Northants 8 years ago. I have been running Range rovers and Discovery's because I have an excellent local main dealer in the Lakes but the time has come to find a G. I fancy a G400 and I guess another trip to Germany will be required. Does Sav still have my old G300?

What are you running?

Three is greedy I only ever had two at a time. It's really odd, I have a 12 month old Discovery 4 which is great, my Range Rover TD V8 was fabulous but you know what, they are ten a penny.

So many members still loyal makes me feel like a slacker, Glad my old 300 has been a joy to own, nice plate Sav.

Hello Fred have you still got your green 500? Is Petit Paris doing well? All I need now is a 400 or a late 300 , any leads appreciated.

Bruce try mobile.de. There are plenty of 300 TD's on the market in Germany. I currently have Marks old 300TD, but if I could afford it I would  buy a Professional.

Re: Back from the Dark side

Howard, I am looking on there almost daily,that's where I got my last G300. I fancy a G400 CDI  but my budget for yet another toy means the  MY2001 to MY2004 is where I am at. I have read reports that car of this vintage had some serious electrical problems.If anyone can tell me otherwise I will be happier to buy a sub 180,000km G400.of that sort of era.
