    Lol, would be interesting to see how a D3 and L322 compare, as in working on them etc

    Must admit did look at a L322 before the D3 and interior was outstanding in quality , ins was silly money otherwise I would have had an L322

    My D3 is an ins group 33 , just looking to see what the L322 is

    Found it, was the V8 auto biography group 48, standard group 38

    Think the RR classic is group 33

    Freelander was group 21

    Well the first Range rovers kept me busy at work doing warranty claims that's for sure. Nightmare to drive at any appreciable speed on twisty roads.They were not made by Land rover but BL Rover group.

    Strangely, one of the plastic mouldings on my P38 has the name "Austin-Rover" moulded into it:eek:

    Quite possible all sorts of stuff was used out of the stores. I believe the smaller aircon condensers fitted to later P38s came from discontinued Rover cars. Usual Land rover pricing policy was used, three quarters the size and three times the price. :D
