    A gaylander ain't tall enough to look down on a sports car let alone another "real" land rover!

    Anyway, if I was going to buy a vehicle for the traits the Freelander supplies, I'd buy a Disco or Rangie.

    Disco's are spot on a half breed of road and off road. The gaylander was targeted at young surfers.


    I enjoyed it.

    the defender is an agricultural vehicle - why do some people use them as everyday vehicles?

    the freelander is the perfect everyday car with excellent off-road ability

    the disco sits inbetween the defender and the freelander, if you work on a farm have a defender, if you want a car with excellent off-road ability have a freelander, why have a disco?

    they do, just not on your laning trips. Also most freelander owners don't want to go laning.
