    Just returned from holiday - whilst out there, I rented a Range Rover. What a buzz!

    Now I'm seriously considering trading in my daily driver (BMW 330) for a used 4.6 HSE or perhaps a Vogue.

    I know bugger all about Landies - anyone here got one?
    Whilst I'm here - has anyone here got an X5 (also a contender)?

    I'd really like to hear any opinions.

    Cheers
    Paul

    Try a Merc G. I tried both and decided the G was better. Not everyone's cup of tea though.

    Hi go for the new Range 4.4 petrol, you can even drive it hard it is better than the rest by miles and miles.
    Have had the last 3 models and they just get better and better. Had a merc ml but it was like being a kid and your parents gave you a Chipper and you wanted a Chopper the real thing..

    Andy.

    I Had a Rangie for years. Loved it.
    Gutted when I had to sell it. It was too big for the wife.
    Or was that the other way round - sold the wife kept the Rangie.
    It's was touch and go for a minute.

    Dale ,

    You'd better explain yourself before I start to think you've lost the plot completely?
