    Lucky. Every manufacturer has its problems, I've had my fair share with BMW especially with corrosion on tailgate - had two replaced under warranty on 4 year old cars.

    Not crazy about the wheels but that doesn't look too bad actually.

    Looking at the weather today you may be better with a Unimog.

    Seriously a couple of years ago my son had to put 2 practically new RR out of a very muddy car park , with a DMax truck.
    Not so much the vehicle but tyres , he had very aggressive mud tyres they had road tyres. Trouble was a lot of the mad from his tyres absolutely covered them.
    Actually the DMax is quite a good tug as well, regulary pulling the Ser 1 on the Ivor Williams

    I'm a bit late to thread, but the RRS looks so much better, particularly the front where the X3 look lets it down in comparison.

    Beauty is in the eye of ..... and all that.

    RRS v X3 which is best ..... is a first world problem to consider and it would be a boring place if we all agreed. :)

    M40i isn't the one for me, I'd pick the 30d if it wasn't for the extra cost. Actually if I wasn't considering cost it would have been an X5 G05 :LOL: (heated cup holders!)
    The G01 X3 looks best from the side, it's got a great looking profile. Front end is a bit high and I keep getting mistaken for an unmarked police car :police:

    Range Rover looks great, I've showed the guys in the office and they agree :cool:
