Well I sold my M3 this morning... :bawling: sigh.. it went to a very good home though!

On my way back from the Post Office I see this XD at a shop, being smogged. So I left a note on it to see if it was for sale.... owner called and said it was. Said he'd take $10k, but no less... Said he used the extended warranty to replace any and all defects. Has 110k on it. Looked immaculate. Any input?? Here are the pics:








Thanks!!

I say why not, I think life wouldnt be as grand if we didn't take risks evey once in a while. I just hope you had a background check on the vehicle before you make a purchase. Hey is that blackout on the hood of the XD painted on or is it a decal?

Ugly - I dont like the paint job and decals.
But just think how boring life would be if we were all the same!

The Classic is a 1995. Converted to springs. Disco I wheels. Not much else...

Actually Serg, there were 500 Disco XDs made in 1997, 250 came to the US, and 250 ROW. All were built from SDs, pulled off the line. They are known to be faked, by repainting an SD, but look for the absence of roof bars on a real '97. I say it that way, because, there are 40-50 (Real) XDs from '96, and they did have roof bars. 28 were used in the 1996 ECO-CHALLENGE in British Columbia. There are a few good pictures on the net.

Ho Chung has one and I think he's been trying to sell it. My son told me about one the day before he was deployed, back in January, and had me go buy it. I drove it to Maine that weekend, and 2 miles from the end of my trip, passed another. The next day, I went to track down the owner, found him and he flipped out when I drove in, and I told hime I passed his the day before. He says, "which one was it?, was a girl driving it, or a boy?" Turns out the guy has TWO of them. I took pictures of the three lined up with the mountains in the background(temp was a balmy -15F), but they are too big to post here. One of his is an original ECO Challenge '96, and the other is a 97, 4 serial number digits away from ours (Check and make sure it has a Special Vehicles plate rivetted to the apron in front of the radiator, right side, report the SN back here. BTW, I paid WAY less than 10K, ans have a line on another MINT one for WAY less also, but my wife is saying no at the moment, thinking an NAS110, an RRC, a D1, two series trucks and a Freelander are enough

Oh Serg:
Buy it!, buy it!!!
As these were very limited production models, (rare model Discos), the ones I like most, they keep going up on the resale value on the long run (just if you ever need to sell it), (or just for others admiring it).Besides that it looks in pretty well shape, and you don't see a factory yellow Disco every day, do you? ;)
Again I would say buy it and enjoy it :drive:
