Defenders for sale in France

Can anyone from France fill me in here... I see lots of Defenders for sale in France, they have fairly good specs and they're below 5000 euro. Are these scams or are people literally giving there Defenders away over there? 1995 Land Rover Defender 110 V8 Station Wagon

I've not seen these ads, but in my experience 5000 isn't going to buy much over here. Second hand cars hold their value in France. If you are seeing decent Defenders for that money then its got to be a scam. To give you an idea of French prices for decent Defenders take a look at my closest Indy dealer. https://www.lignonautomobiles.com/nos-defenders/

Riverboy wouldn't dealers charge a premium though? Like they do in the UK. That dealer does have some nice looking Land Rovers though Thumbs Up 1995 Land Rover Defender 110 V8 Station Wagon

That one is certainly un peu hookey, since as far as I know the French word for white is not "orange", so the vehicle in the photos isn't the one described.

Remember the old saying "si cela semble trop beau pour être vrai, il est probablement trop beau pour être vrai"!

Spent last year looking at French registered LHD Defenders and didn't come across one that wasn't a good 20% more than an equal RHD UK plated one. Some much more than that and I went UK reg in the end.
Came across lots of scams, the type you see on ebay in the UK - they don't do cars on eBay France so they try on other sites.
Keep clear.

So it's safe to say they're scams then. No worries, I'm a way off getting myself a LHD Defender anyway! 1995 Land Rover Defender 110 V8 Station Wagon

Personally I'd rather pay the extra for LHD. RHD over here in mainland Europe drives me potty. Cant see at junctions, cant see to overtake, cant reach the ticket machines or pay for the fuel, have to get out and walk around annoying the impatient Frenchman behind Rolling Eyes

OK that last one may be worth it Whistle

We have four cars, two LHD and two RHD. Mine are both LHD. OH prefers RHD Rolling Eyes

Ah, but that's only possibly true at 50% of the junctions...the other half you have a better view! Plus there is the advantage that a Frenchie skipping the give way to the right rule while you are the one coming from that direction is going to make contact with the passenger side (perhaps not that great if you have a passenger I'll admit).

You know about the télépéage right??? Also works in most parking lots these days Smile

Hello. so I can do this with the volant on the english side. No problem because we are high and for working I am not on the roads so I like the difference to the normal french car.
If you buy a french occassion Land Rover now then you will pay lots more than you will if you going to england to do. The pound is weak for the euro and the choice is best. The english also make better the maintaining of the land rovers with specialist servicers all the towns. For this moment I say to you better not take a french one and take an english one like me.

Léo
