Lots of things missing that would make it a true XD. Starting with:

wrong rack (should be low profile SD)
wrong wheels (should be black)
wrong interior (should have cloth seats with covers)
missing the fire extinguisher and tools
interior of doors are a giveaway

I spent a couple days with a genuine XD for a magazine feature and got to know it up close. The one in this ad is missing a lot of key elements. VIN will verify.

If this was a real XD I don't think it would have sat for sale for 1+ month and the seller could get a higher price (not on Discoweb, obviously), failing fuel pump and all.

We can nitpick it all day long on why it's not a XD but you really don't need to do more than read the title.

It's more of a sanity check...it Looked like it started out green. I called the guy out on it and he got all pissy. I also found a g4 orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/d/2003-land-rover-g4/6493371106.html
It's out if my price range but might interest someone here.

People do that shit all the time. He might not even know what he has. If a dirtbag wholesaler finds out that the XD trim level brings the most money that's what they have. They couldn't tell you what an XD should be, but that's what they have.

Most definitely not an XD, or a TReK. Besides the year (TReK/ECO were 1996, XD were 1997) check the inside doors; they're either black or green, but it's hard to tell. They should be yellow. Bright, AA yellow.

Roof racks, wheels, running boards, "kit" can all be added/removed over the years. Paint is a bit harder to replicate.

As a public service would you mind posting a photo of the inside of your XD's doors for comparison? This will be a helpful point of reference in the future when the next yahoo tries to pass off a restored 99 as an XD.

That's for sale near me. I've seen it up for sale for quite awhile. My friend spoke to the guy about it and offered him less. Obviously not an XD.

That looks fake too unless they just pulled off the decals. It is hard to tell from the pics, but those seats look like leather and I think the G4 had duragrain seats with no armrests. I also thought all G4 trucks were 2004, not 2003. The fact that it doesn't have any of the factory badges on the exterior would lead me to believe it has had a crappy respray.

You seem to know a lot about these XDs so let me ask you a question or 2. I did some work on a truck a while back that was grey in color, had cloth seats, and per the vin was an XD. Everything I know about these trucks tells me it was not an XD but the vin said otherwise. You could say someone switched out the vin plate in the dash, but they also would have had to switch out all the other door jam stickers and what have you. What do you think I was looking at?

XD or Kalahari? The Kalahari came in yellow, white, and (I think) grey.

Okay I don't think I made it up.

Quote:
Interestingly, Land Rover?s original announcement for the vehicle at the 2001 New York Auto show called for 150 Borrego Yellow versions to be built, however by the time production ended, the Kalahari was also offered in a not-often-seen white and grey, amounting to 300 in total.

Grey Kalaharis seem to be the most rare, or at least hard to track down pictures of, but here's a nice example. They are very dark grey, so almost black.

Well, I did write an article about them, so you could say I know a thing or two... lol.

Not sure why you found a grey XD, but it's possible that it was a re-paint (I've seen at least one XD that got resprayed green...). Or, as mentioned the Kalahari D2 (which was the ONLY other Disco sold in AA Yellow) does get confused with the XD some times.

XD D1:



Kalahari D2:



Just a bit similar, eh?

I'm also not an expert in VIN decoding, so I don't know if it's possible that the VIN is messed up?

Those trucks are great. Isn't there a registry for the XDs ? I think in the end those will be the ultimate Disco to have. How many miles does the XD have on it?

That doesn't look like a Kalahari to me. If you look under the hood, it appears to have been a white Discovery that was poorly repainted. The Kalaharis I have seen had grey two-tone interior, but that one looks beige. they also didn't have armrests. A Kalahari should also have a Saudi spec grill. Figures the ExPo crowd would be all about it.

Good catch... I hadn't looked at it in detail, and finding an example of a grey Kalahari is difficult. That'll teach me to post without verifying!

My Kalahari (yes, I have documentation supporting its authenticity) is white with grey interior and black seating with tetra cloth inserts and armrest. It also includes the gulf states/Saudi front bumper and grill. They were also outfitted with Safarigard sliders.

So, my understanding is the one pictured was constructed by Safarigard for shows including the SEMA show prior to the release of the Kalahari edition by LR.

Cool, I knew they had that two tone leather, but didn't realise they actually had an armrest on the seat.
