Potential D3 owner from NSW Mid North Coast

Been lurking for a while now but thought I'd better post so that I don't get locked out.

Needing to upgrade from my Holden Rodeo diesel 4x4 dual cab into a competent vehicle that will chew up the kms in comfort (for the wife's sake). A few vehicles are on my hit-list including Prado, Landcruiser, Patrol.

Really liking the Disco 3 but the wife is not too fused on the shape.

Great forum, and looking forward to all the useful info in the D3/D4 section.

G'day and welcome to AULRO. There are a few of us up this way. I saw a white D3 with quite a few options on it at the new Land Rover dealership at Bellbowries here in Coffs. Also if you do get one Ant at Coffs 4wd centre in toormina is the bloke to see for advice and servicing etc..

Welcome mate.
Just do it, you won't regret it when it comes to comfort and 4wd ability. Good luck in the choice, I'm sure you will make the right choice.
Regards geck

Welcome to the forum.

Convince her to drive one, she'll forget about the shape.

The Wife and Me both weren't to fussed on the shape till we drove 1, then the shape was forgotten and the grin started

Hope you find what you are looking for..
