    I was offered this lovely machine for the weekend...

    It was my first experience in the new RR. The tech, comfort and luxury this 4.4 V8 offered was impressive. It showed that nothing offered by any other 4x4 manufacturer, BMW included, can touch it for a pure VIP experience and sheer road presence. Suffice it to say...I slept 3 hrs the night I had it.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Lovely. A friend of mine has one, he bought it at 9 months old with a £30k reduction, only had a couple of thousand miles on it. He previously had an 07 reg Rangie from new and thought it very reliable. He'll probably keep this one for ten years, so maybe it is viable over that period?

    I often thought RR reliability wasn't the best, considering how deep your pockets have to be.

    In case I was tempted [and who could resist :whistle::whistle: ] to exploit its potential 'to the FULL'.........:cool:

    I might consider one of I had a country estate and a pair of Purdey's to put in the back. But as I haven't, then it's not something that I'd be wanting to drive.

    that is one car i would never get excited about, I dont like it at all, big 4x4,s and range rovers in particular are not my thing

    when i was out in Florida a few years ago the rental company gave me an 8 seat saturn outlook which was massive but in the land of excess it seemed quite normal and i actually enjojed driving it over there, but for most of the UK they are to big and to impractical for the driving environment they are usually used in, and that is from a man who drives a car that is probably a nats cock shorter than a range rover

    I wouldn't mind one for a dirty weekend.

    I.e. off-roading, of course... :whistle::D

    Those 2mm might be significant..........:whistle:

    This could turn into the fastest thread lock in the history of the 'Land. :D

    I could never a) afford to buy/run or b) justify to myself having one. But a loan of a huge, powerful barge for a week or so, as I said earlier, who could resist. And up here there is suitable terrain at every point of the compass to experiment. ;) In fact, motoring journalists from all over the world have been known to use the local area when testing 'pre-release' models from a wide range of marques - generally they doss down at Skibo Castle and use it as a base [well, life's tough but someone has to do it.....:rolleyes:] http://www.carnegieclub.co.uk/index.html

    I have played golf on the course there in its early years of development [and it IS spectacular] but certainly couldn't/wouldn't justify paying the price now for the limited 'public' tee times available, ]for which you have to enquire/apply in advance, no prices on thew website ;) ] - even if I didn't have the compromised vision I have now, which really forced me to give up the game [note: it's NOT a sport and definitelyo_O not for the Olympics :rolleyes: :rolleyes:] just when I was getting half decent at the game after years playing..........:mad:

    I like them, I have started looking at possibly replacing mine with that generation Supercharged one but they are still very expensive and the kids would ruin it.

    As nice as they are, I prefer the look of the generation before.

    I haven't driven one of the newer ones yet as I know that I will then want one so am resisting as long as possible. Mine has only done 105,000 miles so still got a bit of life left In it yet.

    cheers
