Defender 110 - 200tdi - what's it worth ?

I'm new to the group and was looking for some advice on a Defender 110 I'm
looking at.

It's a 200 tdi that's done just under 200k miles but does have a full
service history. It's a commercial that has had the gearbox/clutch replaced
about 6k miles ago and the chassis/body looks really good for a 1995 M
plate.

So how much would the group say it's worth ?

The chap is asking 3,500 for it but I get the felling he'd probably come
down to 3,000

Is there anything I should be looking for in an engine that's done so many
miles ? (More than the usual ?)

Thanks in advance

There must be hundreds of these for sale across the country so why buy
one with such high milage? If the engine is fine then you can bet that
the million and one bushes on the suspension will need looking at.

It's worth ultimately as much as any one will pay but having had a few
high milage motors personally I'd keep on looking.

It may be a false economy buying a high milage vehicle hoping for a
cheap vehicle but ultimately it will be down to the luck of the draw.

The other influencing factor would be what miles.. motorway, urban or
farm? Not many businesses will run Landrovers for motorway work. The
remaining two choices mean the vehicle has been well used especially
if it's the latter.

I got the spec a bit wrong, it's a 300 and not a 200 but I guess that makes
no difference !

I think I needed the voice of reason to stop me "getting caught up in the
moment"

I'll just have to keep looking

Cheers
