D90 SVX on eBay

Anyone else see this? I wonder why they didn't just leave the tdci. Also, curious what the dash looks like...doubt it is out of the 2008.

Who knows, but read the license plate!!!!

I have seen his advertisements in many different publications, so it is probably legit. It needs more pics before I wire 50g to the motherland....

LOL

I would think the electronics would get all screwy using a 300tdi, no?

50g reserve not met!

Hmmmmm.... a 1980 SVX? the same SVX that only came out last year?

2.8? probably the TGV engine then. although it looks like it's got a Td5/puma type chassis, judging by the rear fuel tank and bracketry.

Anyway, for a "large" company like Nene to be doing this is a bit dodgy.... did you all hear that the MD of Nene is currently spending time at her Majestys pleasure for fraud on a (well, apparently "several") LR sales?

steer clear guys!

Nene is the largest independent dealer in the UK.
Here's the story as it was told to me:

How did the owner not report it stolen and it not come up in a VIN check?

It says that it's a 1985 vehicle rebuilt to SVX specs....my initial impression was that they had a real SVX and used the bits (roll cage, etc) on a 1985 frame. Voila, an "SVX" that could be imported to US and sold for 20K more than the original 2008 SVX. No?

That was my initial impression too until reading it had a 300tdi. It probably has an older dash?

The ad appears to show stock photos of a modified svx. The rear plate says tdci. I would assume it is to show you what they can make you but isn't the actual finished product.
