In SA all GLs (Petrol & diesel) were manual. GRX was/is automatic. Petrol GL was dropped and only diesel GL remained.

My understanding is that all 4.8 GL were manual only?

Welcome Philip

Were you ever involved in the Lotus Register, back around or just before the turn of the century?

Re: Potential Patrol newbie

I don't have an auto, and neither do I have a petrol Patrol, but from what I've seen and heard over many years here on the forum is that I have never heard of a blown auto gearbox. I would go as far as saying that the auto is far better in both fuel efficiency and drivability than the manual, so th...

I need to replace our much loved '96 LR Disco V8i as our family bush holiday car as it's simply too small for us, lacks some basic safety features like airbags and ABS, and I have to pac...
