Anyone gpt any questions I should be asking?


http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

I'm looking at it tomorrow with a view to doing a deal off eBay, the bloke lives local to me & assures me
it's in A1 condition. I'm going to try negotiate a fair price. 85k doesn't worry me, but what should I be
looking for with a TD5?? I know about most of the usual things like corrosion etc.

The blokes a LR nut so he should know how to look after them.

early TD5, so find out if it's ECU has been upgraded. Early ones were not
too well tuned, it seems, and were lacking in low-down grunt.

I believe it's possible to rectify this by suitable chipping.

Cheers Austin, did this engine have some kind of oil pump problem?

How much to re-chip it & where?

Hi Nige

I'm sure that this was for sale on e-bay a few months ago (same seller)
could ask if this is the case, I can't remember though if there were any
bids but didn't he also have a Disco 3 for sale @ the same time, maybe some
one else remembers. Just a thought.

He did mention he bought a D3 & hated it. Sold it after 3 weeks. Not sure if
it really matters, but could be worth asking, although he did offer that
information without asking.

Odd that there's no bids at this price for a GS model.

I know what I'm looking for with the car as a whole, but I know bog all
about a TD5.

You should have seen the garage fellas face with the P38 yesterday after I
told him he had to fix the slightest of drips into the P38's cabin. He
didn't know what the **** I was on about! He then realised it was a big job
for a 40p part!

Shows the value of a group like this really!

Do you have to swear? This is a 'family' newsgroup and children read it.

Eh? A family newsgroup? This is Usenet matey, I hardly meant to offend
anyone, but it is unmoderated & should not be used by kids surely? BTW, I'm
hardly the only one either.

This is usenet, and would generally _not_ be 'family' oriented ... Swearing
is, has been, and probably ever will be, a matter of your perception. If
you don't like swearing, don't read usenet newsgroups.

Would you use language like that in a public place with hundreds of people
listening to you?

> BTW, I'm hardly the only one either.


J**P

Re: Anyone gpt any questions I should be asking?

Nige,
I know you don't mean to offend anyone. What I meant by a 'family' newsgroup
(hence the '...' on the word family) is the subject, ie. LandRover. If it
was XXXX Porn or whatever, then maybe different. My kids only see some of
the messages on this newsgroup when I am here, just dont expect to see
swearing on this subject newsgroup-LandRover.
Richard
