I have an F75 Fourtrack 2.8TDX which is starting to show signs of old age and I suppose, regretfully willl neeed to be replaced at some time.
I have been offered an M reg 2.8TDX Independent which as you clever folk know has a few differences, the main one being the type of suspension. Cost approx£950.
Now I come to the question 'which is better, the F75 or the indi, and what are the relative merits of each.'
To give you some background my F75 is not used for serious off road stuff but rather for carrying the dogs and lots of gear when we go to the Lake District and to make certain we can get across and up farm tracks when there is heavy snow, and to get out into the hills when bad weather prevents normal cars getting out. So I suppose driver and passenger comfort on the road has a lot to do with it and the ability to cope with serious bad weather and deeply rutted and muddy farm tracks, rasther than wondering whether it is going to turn upside down.
I have a few days to say yes or no, so I would greatly appreciate soe honest opinions re general merits of both.
