200TDI/300TDI/V8 – 1990 TO 1998
LAND ROVERS don’t have to be expensive. If you’re looking for a deal, the Disco 1 is very affordable. It is capable off-road and refined too, but rust is a massive problem. Of course if you’re handy with a welder, there’s nothing that can’t be sorted. Check out the floor, sills and inner wings. If regularly serviced, 200Tdis and 300Tdi engines are pretty bulletproof. Prices of good ones starting to rise now as collectors snap up early examples. BUYER’S TIP: Rust is the enemy. Inspect thoroughly. SPECIFICATIONS
