      Old vs New! How Does this old Discovery II compare to the today's Discovery? Find out here as we take both of them up Gold Mine Hill: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYDZIDk-X1s

      +Rawiri 19 it's just a bit of everything. I own and daily-drive one with over 185k miles and basically you just need to know that there will be monthly or at least bi-monthly maintenance involved.

      They're just completely different. At a 4-5k buy-in and an awareness that there WILL be regular maintenance involved in ownership, there's no better SUV bang-for-your-experience-buck than owning a Discovery II.

      A shame you did not point out what was so unreliable about the Landrover , as alluded to at the beginning . Was it mechanical was it electrical ??? What !

      Excellent review. I don't think you missed a thing. I owned three of them (a Series 2 and two Series 3s - at least, that's how they were designated in Australia). The last of the Series 3 was the best one by far (as they re-introduced the ability to activate the centre diff lock). I loved it. It was the best highway car I ever had (the handling was augmented with the astonishingly effective active anti-roll suspension [ACE]) as well as being enormously capable off-road. It had one major drawback - it was an absolute gas guzzler - hideously expensive to drive around town. But that was offset with how good the Disco looked. They have absolutely mangled the latest one - too high tech, no rail frame, and it looks like every other softroader on the market. I can't imagine it's going to be reliable after a year or two - especially with 56pounds of boost... crikey - that's a disaster waiting to happen. Anyway - top marks for your excellent run down. I hope you get many many enjoyable adventure miles (or kilometres) out of yours.

      If it makes you feel any better, the door handle surrounds and other areas are add-on 'wood' features. The only factory wood is the belt-line on the dash.

      Thoroughly enjoyed the review. I've had my current 04 D2 since 06 & 100K miles.. LOVE it. Mine is similar to yours except I also have the Terra Firma wheel spacers, diff guards & tank guard, plus the Mantec snorkel. All useful kit for Arizona off roading.

      If you want to spend money like a drunken sailor, and spend every weekend on your back fixing oil leaks, this is the car for you.
      Take my advice DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE, DO NOT!!!!

      As a daily driver of a Disco II, I thank you for posting this vid :) PS that 'super sneaky cubby' under the passenger seat was where the CD cartridge changer originally would have gone

      Just a note: the lug nuts don't require two wrenches. The supplied tire iron fits the lug nut as is. Nothing too weird about it.

      Really great video. Land Rover eventually stopped putting the locking mechanism's in the transfer case all together, but you can retrofit it in anyway with a kit and a linkage. Speaking from my own experience, the center diff lock means these old busses can hold their own against the modern Land Rover's.

      Great Job! Anyone who has one - KEEP IT!! Body design - take a magnet to the body - you'll be surprised how many panels are aluminium.

      The only issue with the dico 1 and 2 is that it was made mostly out of leftover classic range rover parts, so almost everything you have mentioned here was on the 1994 Range Rover.

      Did you also know that if you put on the rear windows de-mister it also turns on a heating element in the wing mirrors to de-mist them too?

      The window controls are situated in the middle of the Disco as the thing can be converted right and left hand drive. Look at the shifter numbers - on both sides of the shifter. The passenger air bag can be removed to accommodate the steering and instrument panel. Love my 98 Disco!!! Still turning heads! ... and I bought it for $1700 Canadian dollars (probably $500 US) over 8 years ago :D
