[Wanted] D3 2006+ Hampshire £6.5k

Evening all, I've been on these forums a while (pre-membership) learning a lot about a car I don't have... yet!

I'm based in Hampshire (ideally looking to keep within 1hrs drive) and I'm looking for my very own Disco 3. Desired spec...

2006+
SE/HSE spec (I like the toys such as auto lights, heated seats, heated screen, parking sensors etc etc... xenons are a bonus)
Auto (no manuals please)
Any colour but a light interior would be lovely
Mileage - not too fussy but want to keep <150k
Good service history incl proof of key maintenance ie belts, pump is vital!

So... not too picky, right? I'm looking to do a lot of work myself but a good base is what I'm after. I can spend up to £6.5k and want the right one for me. I'm not in a rush.

Thanks for your time!

Ryan

@Moo - PM reply

Hi, apologies for the reply, I cannot yet reply to PMs Sad

What I wanted to say was...

Thanks for the quick reply, more than a half tempting offer there! How come she's come to sell, if you don't mind me asking?

I have got a few questions, if I may:

1. What's the current mileage? I ideally want <150k but for the right price I'd be interested.
2. I've read up on the last owner's (amazing) work... have you had any trouble this last year or done any further work?
3. I assume oil pump is the latest revision ie style and larger rotor?

Do you mind letting me know the current reg, just so I can do a quick MOT check as I like to do and how much is she/you looking for?

Cheers again and thanks in advance for answering my questions. I'm happy for you to reply by PM - I'll keep an eye out.

Ryan

She's selling it because she's changed her mind about what she's doing in her gap year(s) she's taking off.

1. Mileage I think is 166k
2. Additional work we've done:

New belts, new water pump and belt, front brake calliper, new discs, pads and service - last week (Jan 24).
New air reservoir tank - July 23.
New Split charge system with rear 12v and USB sockets 12v including permanently live power - July 23.
Removal of side steps by CDS - sills good. Spring 23.
New stronger boot struts - Feb 23.

3. Oil pump is latest version.

Reg is MY05BEA (Private plate)
