Bah, it was built by people not pixies, ergo, you can work on it...

Only expensive bits are airmatic bits and vacuum pumps.

Plenty of online support globally too, but only a four seater, so you may be better off with an S Class :-\

Outside the box...

Falls outside the stupid tax rates too ;)

An older ML with MoT is about a fifth of that ;)

Won't be too pretty at that level, but if you break it, simply get another one...

That said, if you want to go the Toyota route, then a Hilux/Fourunner would do the same job as the LC for half the cost... Just double check the tow weights on the chassis plate as not all 3.5t ;)

If I was ever going to venture into Shogun etc. territory, I think my only choice would be a Toyota Landcruiser. Not the cheapest, but you you wouldn't lose money on one when you sold it.

Yup, and this was the default choice, however, anything with less than 250k seems to be edging up to 5,000. Given how tight cashflow will be on the build, I can't really justify the extra spend.  :-\

Check lease costs, some good deals about, you may find its less than the BIK hit for many models (don't forget to include tax, insurance etc in the calc).

Noted.  I have seen that some of the higher end PHEVs are pretty good on the BIK but I can only find one with a towbar and that's a Mitsubishi Outlander!  The BMs, Mercs and VWs have all either stopped taking orders or no longer do towbars.  I had a look at the XF and XE but then saw the BIK.....

Scratch it with one of these Tunnie.  :y

That does look, to quote the ad, stunning.

Would tick a huge amount of my boxes, effortless power and very comfortable ride.

I'd be concerned about parts cost though and DIY work.

Now that sounds nice, how much did that cost him?

As that kinda vintage is only way I could ever scratch that V8 ich....

3500 I think - original and unmolested, complete with double-glazed windows, four wheel drive, a V8 (that is virtually silent, sadly!), and in VGC.

The boot is cavernous.. a lot of car for the money.

Nice, my VCDS would work well with that. Tempting thoughts if the 3.2 died.
