Now THAT IS cool.
I remember when they started that round the world drive.
I like to do that in my D1 someday. But too much geopolitical issues going on and getting worse.

Discussion.

Owner drives in with his Disco.

"Hi I'd like to buy a lug nut for my rear wheel"

Shayne: "Sorry mate we're fresh out of nuts. How much do you want for that ugly worthless piece of junk though?"

Owner: "$10,000"

Shayne: "It's going to cost me at least 30 minutes of labor to switch the lettering on those tyres around to the inside. How about $100? That is my no-haggle offer. Cash in hand."

Owner: "I like your accent. OK"

...

3 seconds pass until this thread is posted.

There is. If you select the rover shop there should be a drop-down. Select "Find all threads by the rover shop" - the section is filled only with his threads.
