Love the Rover. I have a 2000 Discovery II in addition to the XK. Great truck, but a maintenance nightmare.

don't even get me started. the Disco is what convinced me to cut my losses and move on. my wife liked to say it had P.M.S. I swear I was ordering parts from England (not cheap) every other week.

actually, the week we bought the XK was the week I finally got the slave/master cyl. replaced and working, and then the driver's door decided not to open anymore!:mofo: that Saturday we were driving home in our XK.

How the hell do you reach that roof backet on the Disco? LOL

It looks kinda funny on that vehicle because of the raised portion of the roof. That thing would never fit in my garage with that basket up that high!

Is that Disco right-hand drive?

I know what you mean about ordering parts. When we first got our Rover (used with 72k on the odometer), it seemed like every time I turned the key I'd say a prayer first. For a while I carried my code scanner with me so I could read the codes as they happened. My wife thought I was nuts...:pillepalle:

Out of curiosity, can the Rover and FJ be sold into the U.S.?

yep, far as I know. us Canadians bring in vehicles over the border. ebay is a perfect example.
