I asked this on another forum with no replies, thought Id give it a go here

Gday,
One of my workmates has just bought himself a Land Rover 2000 series 2 Discovery,
TDI 5, auto, 160000 km.
What he wants to know is, Who is the reputable/knowledgeable Landrover workshop in the Brissy/ Toowoomba area?
Also what should he be looking at in the way of known problems for this model (sell it and buy a Toyota/Nissan answers are not required).
And last but not least what mods are worthwhile?

Thanks in advance

Why did he buy it??
Reputation, Comfort, Off road ability and OH yeah hes 200cm , 140kg and its the only thing he sat in he didnt hit his knees on the dash or his head on the roof.

ABS sensors may fail - brakes are ok but no ABS or Hill Descent Control if they do.

Only other addition is a centre diff lock. If you're lucky the mechanism will be in the transfer case already and just needs an actuator (mechanical or solenoid). Having the CDL makes a huge difference and allows the traction control to have an easier time - reduces noise and wear on the brakes.

We've had 2 Discos and now contemplating a D3.

Go to www.aulro.com and participate in the forum there

As long as it's not a "Monday morning build" your friend will thoroughly enjoy it.
