Discovery 3 V8 owners? how many left!!

I didn't know that many D3 V8s were in the UK but apparently there are 378 V8s in the uk currently.

how many of us here then??

sold my 05 HSE last year at 142k miles
missing the Logic 7, adaptive lights...not sure if I had the active rear diff. how do you check it? just go under the car and check if there is an actuator or any other way?

Put yer 4x4 screen on, low range & rock crawl then move slowly forward. The centre diff should go to locked, I flag the rear doesn't it non locking, I flag it does it's locking. Thumbs Up

I think. Whistle

Wales 2006 Discovery 3 TDV6 SE Manual Buckingham BlueDiscovery 3

381 registered here with the 4.4 V8 selected in their D3 profile, and either the UK, England, Scotland or Wales set as their flag or email address ending in ".uk".

It's a ballpark figure but I doubt we have anywhere near all of the V8 owners registered here, so I would advise (as I've done before) to take the "howmanyleft" figures with a very large pinch of salt. I think it significantly under-reports the numbers left.

Another Witham wonder complete with 7.62mm rounds buried in the carpets. 68,000kms with P38 wheels (looks good even) sometimes I wonder how our Armed forces ever mobilise when they put stuff back together like this. Why a Witham wonder because I wonder where all the money went and so does my wife. I love it to bits though.

Mine here that I rescued from Copart earlier in the year. Previous D3 V8 got broken up, sadly, so certainly one down!

Maccers ....just been to Copart for a banger. You cannot have a look without paying £50 up front. How can you assess from photos? Who the hell is buying from Ukraine and even more far fetched from St Lucia looks like a sham. Apparently the clever people ask first who has put vehicle in the auction looked like a number of punters getting their mates to bid up their entries..........

back to the thread not a single D3 V8 to be seen. I was told very rare

Oddly taken this morning as 3 of my vehicles are parked in a line on the road due to SWMBO baby sitting an Evoque.
