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. £10.5k for an 05 SE 57k miles and £11.25k for 07 XS 68k miles. Ouch!!
 

11 D4 HSE - just Dee, no more Double Disco. Sad

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.

Don’t make the mistake I did. Check the classifieds here and save yourself a fortune and get a car that’s been maintained properly by enthusiasts.

If your carrying 7 people and you want to take the dog unless it’s a very small dog the disco isn’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
