I cant begin to understand why anyone would ever want to own or drive a Range Rover, but were all different I suppose.  :-\

Me too, and I have an occasional requirement to tow mates in gliders out of fields, so would actually use the off-road capability.

I'd rather get stuck in fields from time to time than live with the horrific handling and daft fuel consumption day-to-day.

I'm like Jimmy, as I have a FFRR itch that I will have to scratch at some point.  ::)

If I do get one it would probably end up a short lived affair where like the Discovery I had, I'd get scared of possible expensive repair bills....  ::)  :-\

Oh yes .. every time I drive the RRS I have "the fear" - the fear that something expensive will fall off ;D

Blimey, that interior is hideous.  :o

I thought the normally selected "footballer white" or "60-a-day smoker's beige" was bad enough, but that's taken it to a whole new level.. finding one with a nice black leather interior is actually annoyingly hard :(

If I were ever inclined to spend the cost of a small house on a 4x4 tarts handbag, I would have a Merc G wagon over the RR every time.  :)
