me again, i am coming round to the idea of a petrol (not overly excited).

the Disco that i have been speaking about is still on offer to me, i have gone and asked for the service history and i cant say that im that pleased with whats come back (as people on here have said about oil changes fairly frequently...)

this is what the dealership sent me, please confirm if this is a no go or not?

''please find enclosed a copy of the service carried out to the Discovery Sport, the service was carried out on the 7th of September 2018 at 18847 miles. This model should be services every two years or 19000miles the next service for the car would be due in 6000/7000 mile.''

The service was carried out by Halfords in Sept 2018, it states it had a 'full service' and changed the brake pads

Service interval is 21K for Ingenium diesels. Most oil dilution oil and filter changes aren’t recorded on service history anyway.

Not sure Halfords have access to the right oil, as only available in LR dealers or (for non Castro’s) specialist suppliers.

Petrols are great fun to drive, cost of the petrol balanced by not needing extra oil changes and future DPF and EGR problems.

Personally, I wouldn't go within 6' of this vehicle. Please PM me for further detail.

And more importantly, run an HPI check before you entertain the dealer any further. You will be quite surprised with the findings.

Looks like it recently had a completely flat battery as the dash clock has reset to 2014.

I am glad you are coming round to the idea of a petrol.

It would be worth you reading the thread linked below. This person bought a DS 2.0 diesel despite knowing their mileage was low and also the car had a DPF fault on the test drive. Is this the kind of excitement you are after?!

On any modern diesel a DPF could cost around £2000 to replace All modern DPFs work the same. If you don’t do the miles to get it up to temperature, it will clog up. If you are lucky you can clean it yourself (30 mins on the motorway). But ultimately it will probably need replacing.

If you aren’t doing the miles, you will have issues. They will be costly and not covered by warranty.

+1

As technically it’s a SCRF, not a DPF as the Adblue injection and soot capture and burning are combined into a sibling unit. Hence the systems main downfalls, size -> location -> issues getting up to temperature -> only clears soot when burning extra diesel.
