I would suggest a real dark (the darkest available) sunfilm on the sunroof. It might help solve your problem.

Also the cops can't bother you for the sunfilm.

Apologize right at the outset for stealing your thread. But does it make sense to buy a high mileage (over 70,000 kms) 2 year old freelander for about 40% less than the price of a new one. Or is the mileage too high to even consider it.

What kind of maintenance issues would I run in to for a freelander with that kind of kms on it.

Generally what is considered to be "better" in the used world:

Newer higher mileage or Older lower mileage.

Appreciate your responses.

While 70k kms is not exactly very high for the Freelander as a vehicle, it is very essential for such a vehicle to have a clean service history to ensure that all preventive maintenance and replacements have been carried out on time and at the authorised service center.

Further, a resonable mileage immaculately maintained vehicle is better than a low mileage shabbily kept and abused vehicle.
