Thanks Dave, I tried other cars, but nothing had the buy me factor about them, so ended up with other Land Rover:rolleyes: .
 
Thank all.

I'm afraid i don't know what the colour is. i can look in the book when i get home. I just throught it was green myself.
 
Hi all,

Just thought I'd add a quick update about my 90 which I've now had for almost 2 months and have done about 1500 miles. I've had an average of 27mpg which was what I was expecting, and my best has been almost 29mpg, which is fine for the miles I do.

The td5 is a great engine (touch wood), and is easier to live with on the road than the 300 I think, but for off road, I loved not having to use any power on the 300 but I find the td5 has to sometimes use some power. But as my defender is basically a road car it's great. I tend to cruses at about 65-70 and find it has more power and seems to want me to use it…… but the gearing needs to be sorted first.

Anyway just to say very happy with the td5 think it's a great engine so far.
 
glad new purchase is working out well.

Before wading make you check out the snorkel fitment. The two plastic sections inside the wing should be sealed, a circlip is required on the section of hose near the wing and also check that the breathers have been raised all round.

If fitted by a dealer it's not uncommon for none of these to have been done.

Cheers

Steve

Thanks, good point about the smorkel, it is a factory fitted one and so will check the mentioned points.
 
wow nice 1 rooster!! me i fancy a td5 to be honest for the road... feels smoother etc. though the price tag sets me back :)

well done though... a really stunning motor :)
 
Thank all.

Nice looking Toy

If you want to know the colour just get the paint code from the plate either passenger door post or under the bonnet and i'll get you the paint name, it looks like epsom green to me
 
Very nice indeed. Smart looking motor that - posher than mine! Just on the tasteful side of Bling.:)
I think the colour is Epsom Green myself - I'm sure Tonga is a later colour. I prefer the old greens - Coniston and Epsom - proper LR colours. I'm sure you must love it - I'm still like a dog with 2 tails with mine. Getting a 90 SW was definitely the right thing to do...:D
 
Thanks all for your nice comments.

I'll get the paint code and find out what colour it is as i've actually been asked on the street what colour it is and still don't know.

I'm very happy with it, and would still have my old one just needed mroe seats.

I would like to know what the paint is on mine, but its not stamped or marked on the VIN plate under the bonnet and I cant see any stickers or plates anywhere else...

How do I find out please?
 
hard to tell but it looks the same colour as mine (ardennes green) as far as i know it's an old range rover colour not seen many in the same colour as mine
