Proberly more comfortable on the C5 .... Back in my days in the left hand seat we were once given a lift out of a stage by a kindly marshal following a gearbox failure .... His pride and joy was a brand new Range Rover (mid 80's model), it was the only time I ever spewed on a forest stage, it was without doubt the most uncomfortable 8 miles I have ever travelled, bounced and rolled like a pig at sea, I couldn't get out fast enough (and the owner wasn't to impressed with the smell after I left)

i too have been in a new range rover with an owner who seemed to take remarkable pride in how it could traverse rough terrain in the most clucking uncomfortable manner possible.

i don't know why these people don't just buy a tank.

I'm told they're quite comfortable, Duke of Yourk Rides around in one anyway.

What I don't get though is the off road/never off road, the price and the fuel economy.

I know it might be said of you could afford a Range Rover/Rolls-Royce etc but I think even at £100k I'd rather go for a Tesla Model S to be honest. Also there's no BIK to pay, no road tax, no congestion charge...

Perhaps this makes me sound like a bit of a tight "expletive"? >?:PLO
