Newbie - first time buyer of used LR3

Looking to pay roughly 10K.

Main reason to buy is the full time 7 seats as I'm carrying 4 people who are all 6foot plus, a dog and three other kids.

Will also be looking to a little simple green laneing.

Which one of the these two would you choose?

Both massively overpriced IMHO. ยฃ10.5k for an 05 SE 57k miles and ยฃ11.25k for 07 XS 68k miles. Ouch!!

Thats what I thought. However, all seem to be similarly priced on Autotrader. Price aside, which one does one prefer?

Are you dead set on a manual?
Mileage is not as important as making sure the car has had correct maintenance & TLC.

Look out for a suitable car in the classified section on this forum, do plenty of research and don't rush.

Donโ€™t make the mistake I did. Check the classifieds here and save yourself a fortune and get a car thatโ€™s been maintained properly by enthusiasts.

Iโ€™m looking here and they seem better value here. However I might need to px my car to raise the funds. Thanks again.

If your carrying 7 people and you want to take the dog unless itโ€™s a very small dog the disco isnโ€™t for you as when the rear seats are in use the boot is tiny

United Kingdom 2005 Discovery 3 TDV6 SE Manual Unknown ColourDiscovery 3

It depends on what you want. the SE has satnav, heated screen, leather, bi-xenons, power fold mirrors over the XS and the XS rear carpet has stripes in it so I suspect a dog cage - so do a sniff test.
Like you I thought I needed to spend more but got a gem for 8K
