So there it is, I I bought a GERMAN 4x4.
There you go Willk ... fixed your quote for you. Do keep up Would've thought you'd know better seeing as the father of the Land Rover was a Wilks

Frankfurter, anyone?

For what it is worth, I have had a Disco 3 for 5 years and it has now done 92k miles. Mostly towing a large, heavy twin axle caravan. Been as far as the Med and over the Alps a couple of times (with the tin tent). Tows our rib (unbraked trailer) very nicely too.

The D3 is really comfortable but heavy on juice. 22mpg in town, gentle motorway can see 30mpg with restraint and towing 19-24mpg depending on terrain.

Reliability has been very good and much cheaper to maintain than other Landies I have owned (petrol Range Rovers in particular).

The 110 is a very good bus too - but if you like a comfortable, quiet ride, the D3 is better.

No ones disputes the D3 in ability... It's the reliability and repair costs

Roll on 2013 and some boating. Running out of rubbish debates for winter.
