WHO SAID THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No, I think Ford bought them after BMW realised that they'd messed up by not checking that 'Rover Group' didn't include LR. However, look at Maverick, Freelander or WHAT.

BTW, BMW X3 - what were they thinking?

Rogue,

(Don't believe everything you read)

I am almost 99.9% sure that BMW never got hold of LR. They were really p*ssed that Rover group didn't include the marque - which is why it took them yonks to get the X5 out.

Either way - our Disco is GREAT - even if it does go to the garage too often (but hey, they do wash it!! )

Rr

I believe BMW developed the new Rangie. And yes the TD6 diesel engine is the same as the BMW 3.0d engine as found in the 330d, 530d, 730d and X5.
However, I think the Rangies verion is in a lower state of tune - 184bhp I think whereas the Beemers now have over 200 out of the same engine.

Lr...

NO - BMW were V pissed off that LR wasn't part of the Rover Marque. LR exist as a seperate entity (not entirely sure of ownership, suspect Ford). As for the engine, the petrol V8 is LR. As for the TD5, I would guess thats the same?!?
