Apart from the weird looking exhaust, the wrong alloys, the "easily repairable DVD" and the LPG system of unknown provenance... I'm still weirdly drawn to the greenness of it!
Also it's 168 miles away, which is about par for the course whenever I buy a new car!

We all need a spare, it just depends on which one you decide is the spare.....

From the switch the gas system is using a Stag controller so the rest of it could be anything. Stag were one of the first suppliers that produced a system aimed at the DIY market so can be set to use virtually any reducer and injector combination. Problem with that is that they became popular with the done in a day merchants who fitted the cheapest components they could find (thinking Valtek 30 injectors that are so cheap they almost come free with cornflakes and last about 30,000 miles on a good day).

Well, for a start you'll need to get stuck into:
Advisory notice item(s)
nearside rear Brake pipe slightly corroded (3.6.B.2c)
offside rear Brake pipe slightly corroded (3.6.B.2c)
offside front Track rod end ball joint has slight play (2.2.B.1f)
nearside front lower Tie bar/rod has slight play in a ball joint (2.4.G.2)
offside front Tie bar/rod has slight play in a ball joint (2.4.G.2)

Service history and a huge pile of bills/ receipts would be nice. At 137k miles you'll want to see key items that have been replaced.
Looks tidy (steering wheel needs a refurb). Spare wheel/ gas tank cover looks a bit nasty. Looks like it has 1 1/2 tail pipes. Obviously sunroof!
And it's green so you'll blend nicely into the background

For not much more money this one ;- http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201610269157972?model=RANGE%20ROVER&make=LAND%20ROVER&postcode=tn62pd&onesearchad=Used&advertising-location=at_cars&radius=100&fuel-type=Petrol&price-to=5000&sort=distance&page=1 looks a much better bet. But not a Vogue. Just down the road from me, lots further for you.

Actually some choice in not too silly miles, say 80,000 - 110,000 ish, not too silly price, say £2500 to £4000 cars in my neck of the woods right now. Which is unusual.

Well that's all quite helpful, Orangebean gets the "most useful" vote. Honestly I can't afford to actually buy the thing, and that's a lot to slap on a credit card... but mmmmm... green leather :)
I wonder what happened to the one on ebog that was up for 9k?

That looks okay. I've just done the track rod and drag link on mine, took about two hours all in (two very teabreaky hours) and I didn't need to take the wheels off :-)
