No idea! But, take a look at the proposed new one, and have a look! Shocked

The main difference is the suspension - the LC5 has the air rear suspension but the LC4 has conventional springs.  One of the reasons I bought an LC4 (I plan to keep it long term).

The other difference you'll notice is the horrible satnav in the LC4 - Mine is a later full-screen version.  But there are penty of double-DIN satnav/radios on the market if you want to replace it.

Mmmm, air suspension ?

Perhaps good to stick to proper springs, look at the trouble LR are having !

But then again, they are having trouble with everything ! Rolling Eyes

thanks for your replys,do you think im being unrealistic but my idea was to sell my 03 lc5 manual and get a 04 lc4 auto for the same sort of money.rang a few dealers yesterday but of course they came out with all the spill you would expect,their car was worth top money cause it was an 04 but mine was that much older and so on.

you need to give a bit more info, but assuming both are similar mileage, why would a dealer want to trade?  I'd have said an LC4 auto is easier to sell than an LC5 manual, even if they were identical, so what's in it for them?
