Hi, I just read this. I used to be an instructor at Land Rover - who the hell told you that rotors/disks need to be changed at the same time as a normal break pad change? You see, for their sins, LR build a hard ass off roader, then tart it up to look like a family SUV. These things are designed to be serviceable in almost any environment from the wastes of Northern Ontario to the plains of Africa. As such, things like cylinder head gaskets are simple to replace compared to a high performance V8 as there is a tolerance built into the head that means it does not require skimming etc. You literally pop the timing belt off, un bolt the head, remove the gasket, clean the surfaces, new gasket in, tighten bolts to specified torque and refit the timing belt. the service manual goes out of the window if you use them off road a lot. However, could they have made a better car? HELL YES!! But in my own view, dealers should explain just how much looking after they need. They may look like an ordinary SUV, a car - but they're very different underneath. Ironically - Discovery to 2004 was sold in Japan as the Honda "Crossroads" If you ever bought another - buy the diesel Biggest problem? we were always fighting was water ingress, but alas - my days with LR finished when BMW bought the company. all the bestReport it
