I think I may have seen loads but can't tell the difference anymore...... Rolling Eyes so I'm thinking a Disco sport looks a better bet next time (whenever that may be) - but it was 'pants' on a test drive compared to the D4..... but I figure.... I don't need the size and will have to put up with 'second best' as the D4s are no more and the look and size of the D5 is just a nonsense - may as well get a Range Rover - heaven forbid...... in any event they all lookalike anyway (to me)!

I used a FFRR at Eastnor Land Rover Experience on Monday - it may lack the distinctive styling, boot space and seating of the D4 but, viewed from the driver's seat, it's the most Land Rover like of any of the current cars, is the easiest to tell apart, is good to drive and has a useful tailgate too Thumbs Up

It may be hideously expensive new, a bit wide for our lanes and feel a little out of place in the countryside but, as a 1 or 2 year old used car, if I didn't need all of the luggage space, it would be my (non D4) Land Rover of choice! Thumbs Up

It's sadly ironic that a Range Rover feels out of place in the countryside.

I see a lot driving on country roads but not many have any mud on their sidewalls. Crying or Very sad

I've seen the £ coin. It's not bad, but it's still not as good as the best "modern" coin - the 20p piece Thumbs Up it can only have been out for 18 months or so! Wink

It seems it's grown on the TG journalists anyway.

The more pictures I see of it and now having seen one away from the confines of a Land Rover dealership, the more I think it is the ugliest car currently available.

The trouble is, I am trying to like it, but I just can't as I can't find anything to like about it Sad
