Can anyone help - Does anyone know where FKZ served and how many new engines it's had? :D

Hello and welcome.

I have no knowledge of your vehicle but the landcruisers were fine and regularly maintained regardless of the number of times they have been round the world. :lol:

And look on the bright side, at least you didn't buy a faultfinder :lol:
Life, don't talk to me about life.

Glad you're enjoying your new car and one of our old 'offices' :D

What sort of state was the car in when you bought it? Was it full of drill holes from where the comms equipment and lightbar controls were located, or was it still looking pretty tidy?

Not that I'm toying with getting the missus to buy a Disco3 next time the fleet gets swapped :wink:

hi jez,

just 2 small holes on the passenger side of the center console, next to the passengers right calf.

The white roof light was left in, and I will see what holes are left as I plan to take it out.

When I slipped the white plastic cover off the light, there were just 4 small cross head screws holding it in place.

I am leaning to taking it off tomorrow.

I think I will simply put a 12 inch thin flex on the removed light, , and a "cigar" lighter plug.
I will then use it in the boot area, I may just fasten it verticlaly just to the left as you open the rear door.

Apart from that, no holes.

Don't know what to do about the 2 x red lights in the rear bumper, just leaving them for now.

Where they additional fog lights?

There a a few light sctatches to the plastic trim, at shoulder height as you open the back door, just on your left, inside.

I may simply replace the small plastic trim piece.

For me, it is in great condition, and I am really pleased.

I went to our local Toyota dealer in Warrington, and asked them about extended warranty,
After he picked himself up off the floor, after seeing the miles, he worked out a price of £1125 for 24 months, unlimited mileage, just need to keep up the Toyota services.
