Discovery 4 / LR 4 - 3.0 Diesel or 5.0 Petrol?

Post by A-RO 95 » Sat Aug 04, 2018 11:54 am

Hi all,

I am resident in Germany and looking to either buy a 3.0 TDV6 locally or import a 5.0 V8 from the UAE. The prices in UAÈ are very competitive, and once transport and import duties are added the final prices for similar age and mileage are comparable.

Now I have looked at the torque and power curves I beginning to think the disadvantages of the petrol engine (less torque, significantly higher fuel consumption) greatly outweigh the advantages (No restriction here in Germany entering cities, quicker and more refined autobahn cruising, availability of fuel in East Europe and Asia).

Please, could I hear your opinions.

Regards
Markus
