    Secondhand Toyota Landcruiser buying.

    Been looking at Landcruisers to replace a TD5 Disco who’s chassis is having to be welded up again. Swayed towards a 100 series 4.2 diesel owing to its higher 3.5 ton towing capacity, are these a good buy and is there anything to be careful of, mindful these are now approaching 20 years old?

    New Defender Commercial

    Am I missing something? I’ve specced a Defender commercial S with the stuff you really want in a car, and to match the spec of a Wildtrack Ranger. Tow bar, metallic paint, mudflaps, 3 seats in the front, alloy wheels. And that’s about it, not gone too mad with it. It’s come out at £62,000+VAT...

    Major vehicle quandary

    So I presently run a Amarok doing 15,000 miles a year. It’s leased and going in June this year. It ticks all the boxes for me as it’ll travel across fields, tow a trailer, carry stuff in the pickup bed, takes the kids to and from school and is also happy travelling to the coast on holiday. I’ve...

    Disco 3 - What's the alternative

    Had my Discovery 3 for 6 years now and it's fair racked up some spending on it in that time, with a few more costs already 'in the post' that I know of (Torque converter and potentially g/box) Trouble is, it's sooo bloody good when it works... I'd love a D4 but don't really want to go through...

    Which Microphone, Amplifier etc, to fit in vehicle to ask cyclists to move over?

    D max problem

    Last couple of mornings my dmax has started but won’t rev and struggles to tick over but if you turn it off and start it 5mins later it goes fine for the rest of the day. It is due it’s service so will it just be dirty diesel filters or do I need to investigate further. TIA .

    Pickup insurance

    Just had the renewal for my Wildtrack from a broker. It's going up from £550 to £1,050. I contacted NFU, who have all of our other policies and they quoted £1,150. Are other people finding their pickup premiums have doubled?
