New toy for me. I'm no longer a two car man - Mercedes and Freelander have both morphed into this beast.

Very nice sir!

What's under the lid? If it's the 3.0L V6 8 speed diesel then it's a fantastic engine.

Thank you, sir.

Actually, it's the 4.4 TDV8 diesel.

I have one. You are more than welcome to borrow it for a few days.

Ah, that would be grand kind sir.

Really? For good or bad reasons? You'd have to prise mine from my cold dead hands :D

It was a weight thing. It's like a brick.

Gundogs wrote in post #16649277 (external link)
nope. Although I don't use it very often, I might need it. I think I"m a bit of a hoarder.

I am still trying to sell that Kenko 1.4x though if anyone is interested - it cost me £100 and I'm selling it for £85.

Get using it more, then I can see results

The porker went a long time ago, swapped it for a Freelander back at the end of 2012. The Freelander was a huge amount of fun, but too small. Hence moving up to the Range Rover here.

Lol. As good as the Freelander is, there's not much bootspace, so on holiday last year, a lot of stuff had to go on the back seats.

What can I say... I just love big cars... :D

@ Pete ~ nice wheels you have gotten yourself..............​.but a Range Rover really does need real mud on it to look "right", I see all too many Chelsea Tractors in Surrey & London;)


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

You should have seen it this morning, pretty much caked up to the waist line. It's only clean now because it had to go back to the dealer to have a few things sorted out.

While we are sharing new goodies, I am finally back into the full frame gear. Missed it soooo much.
