Of course Land Rovers break down all the time - well they do when they have GERMAN parts fitted. Just spent 3 hrs changing my power steering pump - and what make was it? ZF - as fitted to the X5 and other cars from the farterland!!! Only part that has ever gone wrong on any of my Land Rovers.

German engineering - my God(mein Gott) they haven't advanced since their rubbish Lutwaffe was thrashed by the RAF!!!

There we are that should start a good bickering match - although Mein Fuhrer will now block this thread......

Off now to watch my favourite episode of Flowery Twats!!!

Bickering? You want Bickering?

You guys don't know anything about bickering, us "Yanks" invented it... after we KICKED ASS twice in the Revolutionary War and in 1812. We then did all kinds of great things like inventing the Automobile, Airplane, Telephone and the Internet... our final accomplishment was selling the hull design "Leeway Ribs" is currently using. Oh, and we cloned Codprawn back in the day too...

OUR BOATS IS BETTER THAN YOUR"N BOATS!!! There! Try outbickering that!
The USA did NOT win the war of independence - because it didn't exist until the war was over!!!

Telephone was invented by a Scotsman - ding a ling was his name.....
Internet was invented by an Englishman called Tim Berners Lee
Aeroplane was possibly a Welshman - or Sir George Cayley
The first car was probably built by a Frog

For your information Codprawn is unclonable due to a total ban on the proliferation of such creatures.

Don't panic as I am sure the last thing the majority of people on here want is another debate on who makes the best 4x4 and how many mountains they will and will not climb etc etc, what they can/can't tow. So fret ye not Carl and myself were not after starting another 4x4 debate just a bit of light hearted hunour.

No-one's mentioned that the Canadians torched the White House in 1812 yet...



Up Canada!

Well you're all wrong anyway, because its quite clear that the Freelander is the best 4x4 ever built!

Yeah, as long as you ordered the optional "off road" kit consisting of a v8 Ninety and a large dog. One to tow you out when you get stuck, the other to bark at anyone who laughs at you . . .
