What are you guys doing in the states?!

Head back to Korea where Land Rover culture is clearly at its zenith.

That's a good one. I never get tired of that video.

I especially like the "mix-MOD" video as well: http://www.off-road.gr/Downloads-ind...it-lid-24.html

DJ

Link wasn't working but should now.

Jack, correct me if I'm wrong but aren't a few the 110's in this video a lot like yours?

There are some WOLF trucks mixed in, but for the most part they are just like mine, but a bit more prickly.

i love that vid too.

I've been watching the new land rover channel for about the last hour.

http://www.gobeyond.landrover.com/gobeyond/

Link to go beyond tv at the bottom and choose land rover on the pop up screen, lots of good film there.

i'm especially hyped up over the RR Sport videos, it got me surfing and given Han's g4 i have a little envy of my own.




I tell you I really feel like trading my disco and RRC in on an '06 Sport.

I'm not feeling it on the G4 Defenders. I much prefer the Camel Trophy Defenders. But the Mk3 on the other hand....

Oh la la!

if you'r talking about a brand new 06 sport... forget it. i heard the demand for the Sport is high and you will be paying too much for what you get. you should consider 04 or 05 MKIII they are usually still well under 30k miles and within $60k. which i believe is what you'd be paying for an 06 Sport that is if you find one.

MKIII baby. if you go w/ Sport... you are fooling yourself. i know you love Range Rovers. the Sport is not a Range Rover. it's something made to fill a market void or demand. which was a very smart move and a money maker... but for the me... it doesn't pass as a Range Rover.

i don't think i can ever go back to anything else now. now driving debbie's LR3... doesn't feel the same anymore.

tangiers orange is an awesome color but are you sure? a nicely set up D90 is more authentic than painting it to look camel throphy or G4.

I love the sport with my eyes. I was supposed to go to Vegas today for a test drive of all the latest but a late start ended that.

I realize there is a tailgate issue but i'm thinking 20 grand for a tailgate is steep. Otherwise as far as i can tell i like the sport better except for the name.

After the test drive I will know. from sitting in them at the car show last year i am plenty happy with a sport. LR# is so fugly I wouldn't even consider it.

Jack, your friend looking to trade. He isn't an ex-marine from Florida looking to kick is he ?

I like my "John Deer" green truck just fine. I am not into posing with this truck. I have my G500 for that.

Chu did great job of building this truck adding only the stuff it really needs using the best parts. I am not about to butcher it with wanna-be G4 Tangiers paint scheme.

Now having said that, wanting to purchase the real Camel D110 listed on the SCLR board is another matter.

The sport is a nice looking truck, the cabin seems a bit cramped to me compared to the LR3 and the ride is much firmer, almost too firm for the michigan potholes. I like the exhaust note and although it's no MK3, it does feel luxurious.

You'd be doing good with a sport but not at the prices i've seen advertised.
