land rover defender ?

A guy at work is retiring this autumn and is going to replace his 17yr old defender it has 326,000 miles on it ,He knows how careful I am with money and asked if i pay cash what sort of deal would i get .



so here is the question does anyone have a clue on what is available if anything

Thankyou

Hi Peter, Yes he bought that one new on a J plate he has her serviced every 6,000 mls .Jacko has taken it everywhere with him its a 110 county model but he wants a 90 with a few bits on new this autumn,

You couldnt wish to meet a nicer Guy when he retires in Nov and gets his lump sum from his pension he is going to treat him self .

The problem he has is he said a new one will last me 20 yrs and i wont live that long 85 ? you never know I said .

Last year our local dealer was doing 8% discount on some pre registered stock ,we managed to get 10% in the end so i think there are deals but we only have one dealer in our area so its a bit of a hike ,I was asked by him yesterday to go along and negotiate with him as he is such a old softy the sales guys would rob him

My advice was to buy one last year and store it ,He was going to retire last Nov ,but work convinced him to stay on for a extra year..


I will keep my eyes open for deals over the next few months as i guess a nice 2011 spec would suit the old boy

I've got a good dealer contact if you want one. They will look after him.

He should sell the old one privately.

TBH ,I think he has promised it to the thatched garage for spares to be broken up. 12% thats awesome he will be thrilled ,Our local dealer said 5% and maybe a little extra 3% at the end of a sales quarter or pre registered examples.
