I am the reason my boss got a new car. When I started for this company I only had an Escort Van (kitted out as a mini campervan, was lovely). Shortly after I traded it in and got my P38. The boss decided it was too nice and made his car look less flashy so he went out and got an Audi A4 cabriolet, with a silly personal plate. No one wants to tell him, but my P38 still makes it look his car look cheap.

I might be underpaid right now, but I still count it as a win.

That's because bits keep breaking on them. By doing a heavy anchor on the brakes seem's to knock bushes out.

The best range rover ever made was the early 2 door V8, on springs & huge levers in the cockpit.

If you look at the 2006 TdV8, there is a silencer across the back that would be quickly wiped off if it was off roaded.
They are just big luxury cars.

Having read up the specs at a press launches I have to say there is evidence they have retained some off roading capability in the L405.....

900mm max wading height - better than a standard fit defender and 200mm more than an L322
Underbody protection as standard.
4 'raised' profile settings plus an extra manual set 35mm beyond the auto ground out (+35mm) height setting total susp lift 145mm
upto 50mph in off road raised setting +40mm
Re enforced double wishbones with 260mm front wheel travel and 310mm rear wheel travel

Its just covered with cow hide and a half a Brazilian rainforest!

I don't want to start an argument but............. I've had two RR Classics long ago, a V8 that never quite managed 11mpg and then one with an old Perkins diesel out of a Massey Harris combine harvester. That was quarter of a century ago and I'm getting the urge to return to the World's finest driving (occasionally, if you're lucky?) position. Is there a 'best buy' in Range Rovers? Or is every damn one a perfect example of allowing your heart to rule your head - and empty your wallet?
