Hi Guys
I have been looking for some time now to buy an Amazon just need a bit of help to enable me to decide what to buy for my budget of around 10k
Auto or Manual- whilst modern Autos are great not so sure about the older ones- I am happy to have a manual and understand they are Rare- do the Autos have any issues
4.2TD or 4.7 petrol with LPG- I understand that the Petrol with LPG conversion are as reliable and economical as the 4.2 is the petrol with LPG a good option

Air suspension or springs- is the air suspension a reliable option given the age of the car I would be buying- I know the air can be very expensive to fix

Sorry to ask all these questions but it a lot of dosh to spend on an old car??

Thanks in advance guys

Personally wouldn't touch a lpg conversion as the cambelt is a night mare job on a 4.7 compared to the diesel as for auto box the older one i.e. 3speed with overdrive is great if serviced every 30k or less if you can. Have heard that lpg can burn out the valves
As it burns a lot hotter and the ignition system has to be sorted so I believe, as for the ahc don't bother to expensive cost me a fortune so I replaced with OME fit and forget with the older amazons the hydraulic fluid pipes corrode and are *beep* to replace plus the pump costs 1500
