I think its actually part of Land Rover's design language throughout the models. MKIII, LR3, Disco, RRC, Series all have a slight difference in the wheel arches.

But again, yes you might be right. from the photo given it does look like its slightly sagging in the back. Sorry to get off topic
Wait so horsey doesn't know everything?

Blah blah blah. I didn't say I know everything, but I can tell when a picture on the wall is leaning, and when a D90 is sitting way lower in the back or front when compared to most other D90s.

PS - send me that photo of Mark's truck already...

Throw a winch on there to even it out

As far as price I'd say somewhere in the low 30's is about right. You will never come remotely close to getting out what you put into it, so it's best not to think of it that way.

comparison

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Land-...73e00420#v4-44

here is a decent looking yellow one that seems to be missing a fog light in the front (why they didn't go out and buy a new plastic grill and a new set of floods I don't know) bid up to 32k. Interesting.

If I wanted to start to learn how to work on my car where would be the first place to start? I have the dvd rom, so maybe there?

any help is appreciated.

Low mileage is why that truck is at 32 already.

a 2 inch lift fixed the saggy back end!

the lift actually raised the back end 5.5 inches so I was sagging about 3.5 inches, I would guess, got it into the garage by a half an inch, yikes. thanks for the suggestions. next up is a high end muffler and stainless piping going from muffler to the end of the vehicle.

Just as long as you aren't looking at this as an investment If you do the math you'll see you are already upside down on this and it isn't going to get any better if you drive it!

not an investment but perhaps an appreciating asset, at the end of the day this is one of the few cars out there that is rare and seemingly going up in value based on that rarity, I may get my money back out of it at the current rate of growth in 2025, but I don't think I would ever want to sell it, I know you can't take it with you but that'd be a great rig to roll around heaven in.
