Another Land Rover Discovery Guide

Land Rover Discovery by Richard Streeton and Land Rover Monthly

Picked up a copy of “Land Rover Discovery” which was put out by the folks at Land Rover Monthly magazine.  It is a dedicated magazine-style publication that came out in 2012. I have not gotten a chance to read it yet.  Can you tell I like my book collections?

Keep an eye out and you can pick this up in the $10 neighborhood from Amazon or eBay. You can still purchase it directly from the publisher, but it will cost you a bit more.

So, as I do when I think about any project, I have been buying books. I have been looking at Land Rover Discovery buyer’s guide type books as well as manuals and general history. Here are a few that I have so far…

Still looking for a few more, including …

Digitally, I also have the official Owner’s Manual and RAVE service manual from Land Rover Resource.


Land Rover Discovery 3 – LR3

Land Rover Discovery 3 – LR3

In my search for a Land Rover Discovery, I am reading just about everything on the subject that I can get my hands on. This article appeared before me on Facebook today in reference to the Discovery 3, known in the US as the LR3. I have really been constraint my search for purchase to the Discovery II, but I wouldn’t be adverse to an LR3. Plus, the comparison between 2 and 3 might provide useful info. Finally, the Discovery 3 is known to many as the car that saved Land Rover. I am not sure about that, but only because I am one of the uninitiated and uneducated. I will have to read the article to find out.

The article is in Land Rover Monthly magazine and is entitled Land Rover Discovery 3 (2004 – 2009). In the article author Ed Evans provides buying advice as well as a lot of straight talk about pros and cons of this model.  Should be a good read.

Update: Found their links for Discovery II buyer’s guide.
