I Read All The Arguments.......

and the only plus the LR is that it looks cool, is cool and you will be happy for 10 muinets driving around in the thing, OH and you can drive to the top of big ben with it , because its so good offroad........

L200 , Pikes drive them, but at least its , driavble on motorways etc , its comfertable, comes with 3 year warrenty, which you will never have to use , it will start , stop , do anything you ask of it, and you wont have to worry about breakdowns , noise , a/c , pain in your back or arse after 200miles driving the thing....... and you wont have to listen to your wife giving out about driving a tractor.


just to make the piont again... 2002 , I towed a J24(crca 3200kg inc traler ) back form Italy(near Rome) ..... I had choice of L200 (mine) and RR (friends)to do it with.... I called the AA to cover me for the tow, and I was told that they wouldnt cover the 18month old RR , but they would cover the L200....... Need I say more

Says the man with a brace of Evinrude Fichts (post 2001, natch)

Dan, stop using your wife as an excuse for not buying the Landie - under no circumstances should a woman ever be involved in speccing up boys' toys.

Well excuse me Mr D but I beg to differ! If the lady is happy, the man will be too!! Or would you rather have to listen to complaints every time you take her out in your 'toy'?

Now get back in your box and don't come out 'til I say you can. Boys, huh!

I'd say you were grossly overloaded.....

I've got both on my fleet. A "4life" and a 110. I know which I choose when I have to do any heavy lugging over long distance...

....and they both make regular trips to the dealers for rectification.

Not a problem as it happens - Gaynor doesn't like RIBs, motorbikes or noisy British sports cars. Loves the RR, though

I will give it some thought, Dan, but as a Libran I'm not the world's best decision-maker!

When do you have to make your decision?

P.S. So far, I think the LR is winning on rugged, 'grrrr' factors, whereas the Mitsi is winning on pretty, 'ooooh' factors! I'm not helping much am I?

Don't bother wasting your time, everyone - he's already made his decision, he was just hoping we'd all tell him to buy the Mitsi. Pathetic, utterly pathetic. And don't come back on here whingeing about police harassment after you've bought it, either....and don't even think about towing a caravan in it.
