    so you are actually going to go down hill with parts availability, design and mileage and uphill with replacement costs..

    Cool..

    What rover are you getting?

    Not selling the Toyota - this is a new toy. Parts availability in the UK for Land Rover is excellent and cheap

    Nothing at all wrong with a Rover, especialy in the UK. There is a lot of enthusiest support for them and loads of aftermarket goodies for them there. A tricked out D90 is a very cool vehicle, I think. I don't think I would have one for myself but I do like the look.

    I agree with Cdan. I think the rovers are cool and very capable when they are running. In the UK you should have plenty of enthusiasts and parts availability should be good too. Post some pics.

    Can you believe it? I drove 1.5 hours to buy the Land Rover on Saturday - I rang the guy before I set off to tell him I would be there by noon. When I arrived he appologised and told me someone else had driven by - seen it and offered him cash. So it was a three hour round trip for nothing!

    Never mind though - I have spotted this one on eBay and it is only 40 mins from home:
