My name is Graham Bethell. I am a partner in South Staffs 4x4. I became a Land Rover fan by chance, after I purchased a poorly 300 Tdi commercial from a local dealer for my business in 2001. The next three years were pretty uneventful, as I plodded on with my 300 Tdi. In 2005 I decided to replace the 300 with a TD5 and purchased a 2001 TD5 GS. This was great but after my first trip offroad with the TD5 I decided it was too good (and expensive) to trash. So I decided to buy something for a bit of offroad fun. Trawling ebay I soon realized I could not afford a Defender, so fell back to the cheaper option - another Discovery. I spotted a G registered V8 which had some modifications and seemed pretty cheap. I had a bid on it and won it. G469WAC. Before I had chance to collect the car several other ebay members had been in touch explaining that I had in fact purchased a gem, as G469WAC was one of the 86 pre production Discoverys built in 1989 and used at the Plymouth launch later that year. After some more research I found a group of enthusiasts who were members of the Discovery Owners Club, and between us, we took on the task of saving several of these early cars.
My ownership of Land Rovers has covered most Discovery models (25 in total!) and a few others along the way. Once I got into TD5's I stumbled across the EGR problem! As an engineer I looked into the market and decided to make the blanks for these vehicles. I then added the 300 Tdi and most recent the TDV6 full kit to my range along with comprehensive fitting instructions which you can download as a pdf from the EGR blanking guides above. I have also owned three Discovery 3's and a Discovery 4.
I am adding things all the time so come back in the future and take a look.
