Cheers Mr Glover and Verydisco, very kind. Yeah getting from a 2012 TDV8 into a P38 is not the jaw dropping difference some would think in terms of comfort and off road ability. Though will concede the power on the road is very different once going, though this one has been chipped so its pretty nippy to begin with. It had a brand new factory engine fitted by Lookers in 2005 which has only covered about 40,000 miles so far so hopefully there is a lot of life left in the old girl yet.


Totally agree, furthermore the P38 is more nimble in the corners and on roundabouts that the TDV8 IMO. The P38 does not feel like a big car, whereas the L322 really does. Worlds apart, but both rather special.


Indeed, and I find the P38 easier to deal with in the deep mud and off road. The TDV8 tries to overrule you where as the P38 leaves it up to you. My farming mates in their pickups give me loads of abuse if out shooting about how useless Range Rover's are and then when we leave a muddy section they all need a run up and are fishtailing all over the shop, I just put it in D, lift foot off brake and gently apply gas pedal and off it goes, no traction control, nothing!

They can keep their pickups! 2003 VW Golf V6 4motion

That is lovely!

Are those wheels done in shadowchrome? Was thinking of having mine done in a similar shade.


So had a look, in the build spec they are listed as 18 " Hurricane then "Bright" in brackets. I am not sure if that is just standard or not. That is all I can find I am afraid. 2003 VW Golf V6 4motion
