Hi fellow p38 or RR owners
I am wondering wheter I will sell my diagnostic stuff to the new owner of my business here or is it worth taking it to Costa Rica, I can unlock BECMs, do all the Rovacom magic there is and I'm pretty good at electronic faults of all sorts.
Also repairing suspension blocs.
Now I wonder do I leave it all here or not? Depends on the call.
Yes, I can do it in spanish.

Your destination caught my eye as we visited a long time friend in Santa Ana. The place is Los Jardines and I am sure you would find info if you need a place to rent or buy. He manages a small enclave that he built quite a few years ago. I saw a dealer a few miles away from his place but actually saw very few range rovers about. Maybe there are more now. It would be worth finding an export list if such a thing is available to determine the number of units about. I am sure your skills would become known thru several nearby countries as well. It certainly is a lovely country and you can get a feel for the country by reading his newsletters if you wish. Best of luck with your endeavours.

Hi Annette, I live in Nuevo Arenal, 30 minutes from Tilaran. Around here it's mainly Series/Defender-country, most RR's (especially the newer ones) are in the central valley. However I think, once the word gets out there's a GOOD electronic mechanic around, you could serve at least the whole Guanacaste area, and maybe get clients from all over CR. Cause it's **** near impossible to find decent (leave alone GOOD) mechanics or specialists around here.
Else you could probably sell your equipment here for a good price, depends how much you'd have to pay to get it here.

Are you here already? Shoot me a message: sander (at) flyzone-cr. (dot) com

I have to agree with GeorgeB....

If I had that quantity of diagnostics gear, then I would definitely be holding onto it.. (unless it has been agreed in the sale). You've built up a familiarity with the equipment you have, you know how to use it to get the best out of it - and I am sure that if you sell it a) you wouldn't get the full value of replacing it and b) would end up regretting selling it about the first time someone asked you a question about LR/RR vehicles....

And then you would have the hassle of trying to find, buy, import the equipment again (at the full purchase price!) all the while thinking "I wish I had kept it"...

What's the worst that could happen if you keep it.... You don't need it... then if you find you REALLY don't need it, then sell it... I am sure there are a load of people who would be interested in buying the equipment (either in Costa Rica, or elsewhere in the world)

My 0.02 :)

Oh, and good luck with the move... ! Let me know if you have any more latches you want to get rid of before you leave aswell!

Regards,
Marty

See the "Never Sell Your Tools" thread on the general board.
+1 especially if you already made your money out of the kit and are likely to use it again.

Happy to say that I am in CR now :) Yes I have sold some of my diagnostic gear as here round Tilarán there are really hardly any new ones. BUT I have kept the Rovacom and a Hawkeye Pro and all the P38 and most of the L322 stuff. New owner is welcome to Freelanders and Evoques :)
he is too dim to use the stuff anyhow and I can always get some licenses back as I need them.
