The more senior members may remember me and GB010. I occasionally pop over and say hello.

Having had a TD5 110, Discovery 3, and a TD5 90 I think I have finally filled the gap left by the 50th...

Still miss the old girl though Sad

Hi all,

It's a belting motor. Quiet, fast, handles very well, looks good (IMHO).

I have just got a partnership now so I thought I would treat myself, that and my milage has increased so I wanted something a bit more comfortable. Yes its grand 'armchair' Very Happy

Greg, very perceptive, yes I think it is an ex LRM car - previously registered to LR. It is bit of an odd ball as it is a base spec but with a lot of extras like full leather, electric seats, sun roof, PDC, PTI, etc. It also has a 2008 steering wheel even though it's a 2009 chassis...???

It was about 10k off list with 6,000 miles on it so I'm not complaining.

I will be looking for another Defender when the coffers has recovered from buying this. RRS is nice but I don't think I will ever get Defenders out of my system.

I have always has some form of LR in my stable, from Series 3, through Discos (V8s & TD5), Classic, P38 & Mk 3 Range Rovers and of course Defenders

but, don't really know why but the Range Rover Sport has and I doubt it ever will rock my boat

Perhaps it's because it's a Disco with a fancy suit on, or just the Beckham
bling thing

There you go James...

I haven't done a proper shoot yet but here's one from my iPhone.

After 3 years of faultless service the sport has gone... Totally superb vehicle despite the poor image...

Replaced by what else... There can be only one...



Range Rover Vogue TDV8 315bhp / 500lbft / 0-60 7.5 / 30.1 mpg / 8 speed ZF auto and more toys than you can shake a stick at...!

Goes like a stabbed rat, leans in the corners a bit more than the sport but is more comfortable off road. Very, very nice...

Allan, disgrace, cool motor, but looks nothing like a 50th

I resist posting my RR TD6, Puma Def 110 Hicap with an unique spare wheel configuration with full functioning tailgate etc. reckon likely the only possible one in Uk, totally bespoke.
