    I think you need to be a bit more cunning Dave, I was on to you by the the second sentence, and I'm not that bright.

    Lets hope this doesn't end up "out of context" on another web site. It seems that almost all LR related searches that I do on Google end up pointing back at an AULRO page, so they're pretty visible to the entire world.

    Hey mate, I think youre going a bit overboard with your view of the 4BD1. I bought my first Rover S11 swb back in 1968 and have had several S2A's and 3's before buying my county and it is the best I have ever owned.Its not fast on the highway but its like an elephant,will pull a big load all day every day at 100k and give pretty good fuel economy.You can turbo it without any major hassles and it will last almost forever.Mine has done 700+K and still going fine even though compression is starting to get a bit low (understandable). I have never had any of the problems you mention in this time apart from a leaking rear seal.The LT95 has stood up good and neither motor or gearbox has had any repairs,apart from getting the injectors checked twice.Both times they really didnt need it. So as far as I am concerned its the best combination LR has ever built.They are incredible offroad with tremendous torque down low. I intend being like a viking-when I ride the lightning they can put me in the old girl,set fire to it and push her down the hill. A fitting end for both of us.....Bearman

    Hey bearman, it was a joke. Didn't you read the bit at the bottom? He was trying to put people off buying one, so they would be cheaper and more plentiful for us.
