[Wanted] D3 v8

Not sure if I'm allowed to post here yet, but I can't really introduce myself and my Disco because I don't have one yet. Hence the wanted post...

Looking (optimistically) for a D3 v8 in decent condition and well maintained. HSE, because I want the sunroofs. Alpaca leather, but I'm less picky about the exterior colour. Mileage - would prefer under 125k, but a bit higher would still be of interest.

Any leads gratefully appreciated. Thanks Very Happy

Chris

Welcome Chris.

I would much prefer a car without the sunroofs, in the end they usually leak, in the interim they can get left open...more trouble than they are worth.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm sure you're right, but there's something about being able to look up...

IIRC all the V8 D3s were HSE spec. (or G4 challenge).

Welcome.

My unsolicited opinion is the same - the sunroof brings more trouble than what it’s worth. Easily over half of “my discovery has a wet floor” issues here can be traced to sunroof drains being Censored.

If you live in a cold and bleak country like U.K. and Finland its unnecessary most of the year. If you live in a really hot country it’s also unnecessary most of the year. Mr. Green

Thanks - grateful for the steer. There are a couple. Both SEs, rather than HSEs. Both very close to what I'm after, but not quite right for different reasons.
