Hard enough getting insurance on a go-kart being a young male driver...
Some of the cars here look like serious bits of kit! I'm getting a good vibe from the trooper, still not entirely convinced about the Disco though!
If you buy a Land Rover over 10 yrs old you can get it on classic car insurance but it musn't be your only vehicle and you are limited to about 10,000 miles a year.
I was getting quotes of as high as £900 for my 3.5L V8 110 - third party only!!! NFU came up with £400 so was about to go with them until I discovered Firebond - ended up paying £140 fully comp!!!!!!!!!!!!
One thing I would like to say that is usually overlooked by people who constantly slag off landrovers - when buying a used Land Rover you have to be careful as they are FAR more likely to have been abused than a similar Jap vehicle - very very few of the Jap vehicles are EVER used as anything other than a normal car - Land Rovers are often used for what they were built for.
It doesn't take a genius to work out that a vehicle that has towed 3 tons every day and been driven along beaches and through bogs isn't going to be in as good nuck as a vehicle used as a car!!!
Of course there are plenty of Discoverys out there that have only ever done a school run and nothing more.
If you know what you are doing buy a Land Rover - if you don't then buy a JAP car - they have lots of pretty toys.
