Bought this a week ago, previous owner spent a fortune getting it through the MOT and then had overheating issues after the garage he used broke a water pipe and he drove it home.

He was offered 175 for it by a breaker, but we topped that and got it home last week.







It's a 4.6 Vogue, quite nice inside, Thor engine, ZF box and 3500kg towing capacity.

The Discovery is awaiting a new rear chassis member for the MOT.

If it won't come off easily, what about scuffing the surface with Scotchbrite and spraying satin black?.

Then use Chem Pads to clean off the excess adhesive, we use them at work (JLR).

It refers to the engine management, Thor is a Bosch system which replaced the earlier Lucas GEMS system.
