    Range Rover L322. Bad idea?

    I,ve read that about the E70 gearbox,been advised to put any prospective purchase on full lock at walking pace,any jerkiness/lurching walk away, Also not a lover of sunroofs so thats also on my avoid list. I,m not in any rush so doing plenty of reading up on all 3 makes.

    Range Rover L322. Bad idea?

    ^^^^ I think you,ve hit the nail on the head,i,m currently looking at E70 X5s,Audi Q7s and Range Rovers not particularly because i need one just that i fancy one but there are a lot of polished turds out there with partial or no history,blinged up wheels and mis-matched cheap tyres, To be fair the Volvo XC70 has done its job pretty well this last 2yrs i just fancy a change.

    Hello from the latest n00b.

    Case of mistaken identity then,the one i saw was caged n stickered up as if it saw regular track use,probably heading to Oulton Park as i also saw a few cars on trailers heading same way on the same day.

  8. Sorry i didn,t make it plain in my post but i,ve been trying to book a booster since i got an NHS txt to say i was now eligible over a week ago,as i type this i,ve just received another txt to remind me i,m due my booster.
  9. Tried to book an appointment for the wife and i to get a booster,after an hour and half of going round in circles on gov.uk been asked the same questions re name,DOB,postcode i gave up,the gov have brought forward the timeline for everyone to get boosted yet gov.uk link to booster appointments is not fit for purpose, I wear a mask as and when required mainly because i travel all over the UK in my job,i,ve had the jabs because one day i hope to holiday in the Carribean again.

    So what are you doing in isolation?

    Really enjoyed watching your progress Mick,you,ve done an excellent job by the looks of things,only wish i had half your capabilities,we had to pay a landscaper to do ours as i,m a bit rubbish at DIY.

    new guy

    You could be right Dave,when i worked for Colemans a lot of our work was out of Bullivants,used to see a very near identical car at Bullivants but never got to seek out the owner.
