When BMW bought Range Rover it was like 2002/2003. JD was working on the road at the time, was in Chico, California and was living for free in the hotel life.
I bought a brand new, black, 2003 Range Rover and my payments were like $980/month, but I HAD to have it.
It was a great, great vehicle and the OVERFINCH stuff is an upgrade to what is already a tremendously fabulous experience in driving and riding in style.
Chico is a college town. JD did very well with a Range Rover to help break the ice.
That said, they are EXPENSIVE and when they breakdown, they are even MORE EXPENSIVE to fix.
Ford bought them, changed the BMW game plan on the 2003 & later editions and my market value sunk like the Titanic post iceberg.
I was lucky to get from under the damn thing like 5 years later. It was the preverbial black hole in my car allowance.
They used to be a great off road machine. Their new models are not NEAR as capable as previous editions, but they are still one hell of a sweet ride.
I ever win the lottery, I will be getting another one, but with the OVERFINCH SAS Edition.
Completely bulletproof doors and glass, roof & undercarriage are bulletproof, the engine is redone to produce something like 550hp and the trunk area has a motorized weapons hatch.
Back when Land Rover was owned by the Brits, each production year the first 50 Land Rovers off the line used to go the Crown, and by their designation, a portion of those went to the SAS/SBS departments for use in operations around the globe.
To this day, when I see a Defender 90 for sale, I have to make a point of going to see what shape it's in and what the price is, because that damn thing could climb a tree and swim the Amazon if it had to do so.
