  1. Well, this question decided itself. P38 shat its head gasket in Weston super Mare a couple of weeks ago, following its first good motorway run. As any fule knos, you might get away with a £300 + loadsoftimeandswearing cost to replace the HG, or you might find a liner has slipped, the block is scrap, and there's now a P38 shaped folly blocking your garage. I paid £800 for the car, breaker offered me £700 = no brainer. £100 for 4 months of V8 fun: what's not to like?
  2. You're just down the road! Could've put you up if I'd known.
  3. https://www.idmobile.co.uk/sim-only-deals I have their £6 per month deal. Works a treat.
  4. Happy ending and a new lease of life for something which still had plenty left. OK, not the most glamorous of cars but worth saving all the same - good for you.
  5. Even better if you can blag yourself a Trade Card
  6. I couldn't find any arguments for Defenders either. The Series has way more character and the Defender is still too uncomfortable and shit to use as any kind of car. There's a reason why some folks call the Disco 1 the 'thinking man's Defender' So, this 'nice looking P38' you're after... 😉
  7. Hey, it could be worse... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/487355106498439/
  8. I couldn't figure out how to do that AND have some blurb. Becos i is no gud at computaz
  9. and I've just totted up and that's 6 votes for each. You're not helping
  10. How can you be so hurtful? Just look at it: Ferrari used to dream about creating designs with this kind of coherence, artistic language and classical beauty. And the shonky BL bits just add to the charm if you ask me 🤣
  11. Thanks! Got a little campsite behind it if you're ever in the area: https://www.facebook.com/Stroudcampsite
  12. Tough one, innit? Weirdly, my wife much prefers the Disco to the RR. If I can find an efficient way to keep both, I will. Neither are currently depreciating as far as I can tell.
  13. A year ago I bought a Disco 300TDI. Manual, 140k, leather etc and a decent bus. Went through a new MoT last month, no awful rust and mechanically really sound. Worth £2.5ish 2 months ago I picked up a P38 bargain. V8 auto, 125k. Also in decent condition. MoT til Nov, and will probably need a few ball joints for the next one but nothing more. Worth £2kish That kind of money won't change my life, and I like them both in different ways. Which one should I sell?
  14. That is a gorgeous Series 1, but your reasoning is spot on. They're not that much use most of the time these days. My Series 2A has sat in the field for months now.
  15. Here you go. It's a Renault 4 van. It looks beaten up. It has a CT and Carte Grise. It's 2300 euros Best of all, it's in a town called "Beer" 🍺 https://www.leboncoin.fr/voitures/2153526603.htm https://www.google.com/maps/place/37150+Bléré,+France/@47.3010705,0.9847912,13z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x47fcb7cda60eab81:0x2291fbc7d1074edc!8m2!3d47.327514!4d0.990986
  16. Cars are dearer in France than the UK, as lesapandre says. I suspect they've had their own scrappage scheme, which has spoilt the party somewhat. Plus the CT will be much stricter than our MoT if it's anything like the German TuV. I share your dream, but suspect we're at least 20 years too late.
  17. This looks as if it might actually drive: https://www.leboncoin.fr/voitures/2132570392.htm
  18. https://www.leboncoin.fr/voitures/2141856624.htm or the equally moribund: https://www.leboncoin.fr/voitures/2137912932.htm
  19. ou peut etre https://www.leboncoin.fr/voitures/2150370103.htm
