I can see how that'd be a problem, it'd be fun to watch her scream as you pull out to overtake and she gets first glimpse of an artic coming straight at her though

It's fast enough to overtake?
And tbh the fecking hgvs over here drive on whichever side of the road suits them,depends on what the driver is looking for.....Red Bull shop,Vodka store or a "nice" hooker

Anybody spending £2500 on a 40k car is taking a risk , if you don't like that risk rent a KIA for £30 a week , this is a MOt'd running, driving, all the warning lights go out, AC works , sunroof works ,radio works, 8mm on the tyres Range Rover for £2500 which is as cheap as they get

Sincere apologies, somehow I missed a massive chunk of the thread and didn't twig that the subject had changed from where my head was at the point I thought I was writing my reply, I have edited my post due to its unhelpful nature.

Just putting that here. How many miles have you done? i.e. cost per mile ?

It's not about the mileage , it's the experience :D

My plan was to sell her b class and use this but that didn't happen , i've probably done 2000 miles in it since I've had it.

Yep -  was like that for the jag, lost money on it but got to drive it around for 5 months! and by having the MOT work done it got to live on for another 12 months. 

 

I'd have actually lost less money if I scrapped it when the MOT was up but it really was to clean to scrap for the sake of a couple hundred with the MOT man.

I am in turmoil here, I have no requirement for a 4x4, no need to tow anything, and most of the time I'm the only person in the car but I WANT THIS.  A friend has had one for 10 years now and it's thoroughly lived up to it's reputation for unreliability and ruinous running costs, but I STILL WANT IT.  Let's see it again so some other sucker can impulse-buy it before I do something stupid:

No, I didn't think anyone was interested.
I'll get some pics and details and put it in the modern section at some point if you want.

There's a a fear of Range Rovers , you'd think they have a reputation for unreliability

This one needs a lot of cleaning and the boot emptying beforeits ready for sale and It's too cold to be bothered with it and the MOT is due soon so I'm witdrawingit from sale

I'd start your own thread though , people will think it's £1000

I like this, and it's even local, but I'm avoiding diesels for the rest of my life.

Next time, do a V8 one.
