Land Rover Freelander G4 Edition.
This is a very rare Freelander that was what the Land Rover Marketing team used to determine what colour to enter the G4 Challenge in! they did a limited run Borrego Yellow and Tangiers Orange Freelanders. Based on the Kalahari trim they were produced in 2003 only and the first colour to sell out was the colour that would be chosen for the G4 challenge. so although only a small part that it plays in the grand scheme, the Bright orange colour we immediately think of when someone mentions G4, is all down to the little Freelander.
On top of the usual Freelander refinements the Kalahari trim adds of the following,
ABS/ Traction control
17 inch Alloy wheels
Leather/ alcantara seat trim
Rear electric windows
The G4 Edition added the following
Borrego Yellow or Tangiers Orange Paint
A dintinctive black painted lower bumper trim which is normally colour coded to the body colour.
Rear cargo/ dog guard for both the rear window and the back seat.
people often then added dealer options to make the cars more Off-road biased/ looking
The one I have for sale here has the the following additional options,
rear cargo package,
Front and rear mudflaps,
Harmon/Kardon upgraded sound system and cd changer,
Electric folding mirrors.
This is a fantastic little example with only 2 previous owners and a very pampered history.
Supplied with a full service history banked with the receipts.
Recent work consists of upgrading the pesky head gasket that plagues the 1.8 as well as installing the upgraded 'grey' type PRT thermostat.
New cluctch and hydraulics
Timing belt and water pump replaced.
Its just had a full service carried out including the following,
Full engine service including the engine, air, fuel filters, spark plugs and oil.
Full transmission service, the first thing we do with any freelander is drain the transmission oils as it tells us exactly the condition of the running gear. This one had immaculate oil that we drained out. so we reassembled and filled with the correct manufacture specific oils.
The very important replacement of the viscous coupling has been carried out. We use Bell-engineering for all of our transmission parts, you can read up on their website about what they do. new bearings and U/J's were installed at the same time.
The usual corroded/ broken sunroof was apparent so a new sunroof assembly was bought and the mechanism refurbished. all working as it should.
The condition on this Freelander is fantastic. People have commented on its good condition before it went in the workshop! The drive is very nice and refined as it should be.
