You can still get 300tdi from landrover new, they are used for export models as I believe they do not meet emissions regs for uk sale. read recently about vince cobley et al (a guru of moroccan travel and all things landrover) taking 2 of the new discovery's to morocco. One developed a problem and he had to return to uk to get it fixed, ok if you can but not much good in a mauritanian outback. IMHO landrover have lost the plot with the TD5 and are chasing a fashion trend at the expense of their core market.
there is an ongoing debate about which is best, landrover or landcruiser. IMHO if you are good with the spanners landrover is ok, but if your life depends on your vehicle starting in the morning get a landcruiser. I am confirmed landy nut, but have just bought a 1990 landcruiser
