Discovery Questions, model, Price ect

Unread post by oversite » January 28th, 2013, 1:06 pm

Hi All,

Im hunting for a new 4x4, and I am now thinking about a discovery, I am looking at one from 1998, my question is how do I tell if its a disco I or II? did they both come out in 1998? its the 4.0L V8 if that helps

ANy common problems with these cars?
Any thing that I should be looking for?
How much would you pay for a good condition disco 1998 with 198,000k's new tires, new winch and ARB bar?

Any advice appreciated?

Red Book (website) will show you what the value of the vehicle should be. They base their stats on market sales, not insurance values.

A bit late on that response - He has bought and is maybe selling (well he said he was thinking about it) the disco.

Yeah thanks anyway GQ.

And redboom is terrbily inacurate for pricing vehicles. The more popoular the vehicle the more abaove the book value it will sell for and the less popular the lower.

The book values are not accurate after about 10 years of age.

And the disco isnt for sale yet, I have to get the cruiser back on the road before I can sell it :)
