New (to me!) Disco.

Well, I've finally gone and done it - bought a Disco to replace my BMW
330dSE, on account of my new caravan being a tad too heavy for stability
behind the BM. Picked up a 2000 (X) metallic bronze (Kinversand??) 4.0
Disco 2 XS Auto yesterday, warranted 25,000 miles from new. Even got 20mpg
driving it home the best part of 300 miles to the north of Scotland, and I
wasn't taking it easy either!! Drives really nice except for a little
vibration (I think from the dreaded propshaft rubber coupling) at 80-90mph.
What do I miss from the BM? Well, the auto-dipping rear view mirror for a
start, and the trip computer, although maybe seeing my mpg displayed in
front of me wouldn't be such a good thing!? I can live without the
rain-sensing wipers and the tyre pressure warning system, but the park
sensors would be nice.
I (and no doubt my bank manager) can sense an LPG conversion happening
relatively soon, methinks!
Anyone know if the auto dipping mirror is a straight swap, and if you can
fit park sensors with a rear towpack? The BM had to have a removeable
swan-neck hitch fitted so that the sensors could still operate, otherwise
they picked up the hitch and just sounded as soon as you selected reverse.
Cheers all,
Badger.
