Mein Auto: 550 Msp, Range Rover, 911
I have had my 2005 Range Rover since new, it has a BMW engine and many BMW parts. The RR now has 69k on it and it has been THE BEST vehicle I've ever owned. As a matter of fact, every time I got in the truck for the first year I started it and said to myself "I'm not worthy"
My RR has never been in the shop for non-scheduled repairs / maintenance. Whatever repairs needed were done at these times and covered under the original or extended warranty.
If you have never had a RR you just have no idea how good it is. Around town it behaves like a limo, sooo comfortable, on the highway it lowers itself and will cruise all day between 70 - 90mph getting 21-23 mpg. Then the best is offroad, it is a complete animal, I often have it on the beach over difficult sand trails and thru water 30+ inches deep.

The newer Jag engined RR are suppose to be even better, but I love my RR too much to trade her in.

I have little experience with the RR sport, but I felt the need to correct some comments made about the RR.
"Ish...I have in the past mistaken you for a perverted I realize that I am not chitbag enough. You truly are a king among men.I am not worthy with such imagination."
