What does this car say about you?
Look at me but so what :-).
What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
You must be made of money! But they all admit they want one.
Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes! It's my first but I would deffinately buy one again. I will keep for a few year then upgrade to a newer model.
What are you likely to buy next?

Type of dealer you bought from?
Did you buy this car new?
What price did you pay?
When did you buy the car?
Did you get a good deal and why?
The deal was ok as the car only had 64,000 miles with full land rover history but the dealer was a nightmare due to poor customer service.
Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Wanted comfort and power. I needed a towing vehicle but also wanted a bit of a toy to replace my E39 M5 BMW. The P38 fits the bill perfectly.
What was the dealer like?
The dealer was so unorganised, I had a few problems on the car that needed sorting but rather than the dealer arranging, I ended up doing all the chasing and organising with 3rd parties to rectify. The dealer did pay but I won't be using them again.
What's it like to drive?
The car has a great engine with loads of torque. It is quite thirsty but what do you expect with a 4.6 V8 petrol however this is more than compensated with the ride and power.
What's it like to park?
My wife loves to park it and the power steering is so easy she says it Easier than her mini to park.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
Since owning the car I have found that the air suspension pump is weak and starting to play up so have decided to replace before it fails. The other fault it has is the drivers air bag, the garage think they have located the fault and should be an easy fix.
What's most practical about your car?
The car is so easy to drive, even considering the overal size. My wife says she finds it very easy to park and has great visibility. Parts are cheap and easy to find. There is also a huge amount of room inside.
Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Air suspension! It's great when working correctly, it's so comfortable.
