Pretty much what Baldy has said, all the bad stuff, I know they heavy on juice, but luxury cars and cheap as chips, suppose it's like any car, good n bad, some people have told me they are bullet proof and had no probs, then others have had nightmares.
Cheers, just looking at mo.....

I served my time on them at Duttons in Gilesgate Durham many moons ago. Good cars range rover, but I'd opt for a disco, a lot more robust & a lot less electrical wizardry to deal with if it all goes tits up, an independent specialist are 40-50% cheaper for repairs, than main dealers, 'Les Potts' is probably the best round here, I'd pop into his place in Grangetown Sunderland, and bend his ear, he's very approachable, he was the top lad at Duttons before he set up on his own about 20yrs ago.

Cheers again for info, I only drive to and from work, 20 miles max per day, be lucky to put 3500miles between MOTs, and always save up for car, so no monthly payments, that's why MPG doesn't bother me, knew bout suspension issues, but few out there with spring conversions, LPG is another factor, read you loose 40% power n fooks engine.
Prob would have to sell scoob (couldnt insure both) and tbh am still enjoying me STI at mo, was just impressed with the spec for the price of some older models, some out there with full service and 60,000-80,000 on clock, for few grand.

Les Potts is a good source of all things green oval...

Remember for all the horror stories they are the same out they who have never had a bat if bother with theirs. I'd opt for a Disco HSE personally over a RR but both nice enough,
