My daily driver

Bought this recently to replace the Vectra Elite estate as badly missed my series 2 TD5 Discovery. Needed an auto as my clutch leg was suffering in traffic due to cellulitus issues in both legs over the years.

So got a very happy place to be on the daily commute. No more leg cramps, bad back is now cosseted by the leather armchairs!

So it's a Discovery 3 HSE auto with just about every extra going as was owned by a Land Rover Jaguar Director, has heaps of history and bills to prove.

Perfect for my three Dalmatians and the 25' caravan.




Need to buy a ramp for the dogs as it's a bit high for the lazy buggers! :D

That's a sexy looking Behemoth Mick, the ramp is a good idea. I use to have to help my Rottweiler into the Beast as she got older, bless her! Even now I miss her terribly :(

Good heavens, what no ejector seat? ;b/

Have you seen the luxury Haus Range Rover collection Mick? Saw one in London the other day and to say it had presence would be an understatement. It looked way better than the Overfinch version.

This is enough for now, just what I needed.

Oh yea it's got a heated front screen too.

Not seen the Haus version. I do believe their workshops are based in Farnham, not too far from where I work.

Getting into such beasts and they do have an impact for sure. If we get to have ideas and taking care of all that ways which are very reasonable would work for us.
Setting a budget and being able to afford a 4WD is awesome comparing to sedans.
