fuel tank recall

Just had the petrol tank replaced in our 95 V8 under the recall scheme.
While it was being done they lent us a brand new (well 1700 miles) Discovery
3 TDV6 S. Although it looks awful from certain angles it was superb to
drive - would rather have the V8 though (in my dreams!)

Yes they are great to drive.

This recall is a superb/cheap way of getting drivers of older cars into
the show room and driving the new models.

Am I being too cynical ?

Re: fuel tank recall

Nope, you are not being cynical as we said the same thing to the guy in the
showroom. Are we being too cynical ;-)

You'd only be thought of as being really cynical if they'd offered you
a Range Rover Sport...

When the latest incarnation on the freelander came out they did the same
and recalled all the old freelanders. As a result the sold loads of new
ones

... which appears to be a Discovery 3 in drag.

Personally I think the Disco 3 has somewhat overshadowed the new Range
Rover, although neither would feature on my if-I-was-a-millionaire
buying list.

Guy Salmon (wankers) of Sheffield refused to do mine on the grounds it
had an LPG conversion - they said it was not safe, a Health and Safety
danger and we could basically go feck ourselves - this was without
even having sight of the vehicle... (bastards).

Gordon Lamb - Chesterfield didn't have any problems and offered us a
new Rangie (there goes that cynical bit of me) if we needed it whilst
the work was done. We like Gordon Lamb, we think Guy Salmon will
never get any repeat business from us so long as there's a hole in my
arse... I'd soon buy a Jeep than have to deal with the stuck-up
****wits there ever again, wankers.
