    x5 is good but not as exclusive as a range....

    the sclass or audi a8 are very different to drive and live with... but good choices...

    I've got an RRS and have no issues to camplain about.

    I know that this isnt the regular case since, as mentioned before, they often tempt to give you some trouble with the electronics and engine management and suspension as well.

    I suggest if you're gonna decide to go for an LR go for the daddy - the disco.

    Regarding reliability you wont get disappointed with the germans. Q7 and Cayenne are both ugly but solid cars.

    If I were in your shoes tho I'd decide between a G55 and the Disco.

    Thanks for all the replies, this definitely helps. I'm happy nothing major can go wrong (aka my gas pedal getting stuck sending my car hurling uncontrollably at whatever is in its path)

    Too soon?

    Ok...I have to admit...with Lucas Electronics(Prince of Darkness and the reason the English drink warm beer) you will probably always have a few quirks! I have an XK in addition to the LR's and I am constantly resetting the window setting (they roll down .5 inch when the top is up to roll back up into the convertible top for a quieter ride)...and have ISSUES with my bluetooth (have to just turn it off when not in use or it is constantly seeking while in the garage and runs my battery down) ...BUT there are VERY few cars I would take/trade over mine and THAT is what it is all about...very satisfied after almost 15 years of British Engineering...

    Don't have one but the new {insert make and model here} is vastly improved over the vehicles of just a few years ago. Serious mechanical issues are few with any vehicle, and I have to disagree with Giannis in that nothing from RR, Jag, MB, BMW, Porsche or Audi is made with poor materials (look to Japan for well assembled cheap stuff). 100 defects/100 vehicles is the norm now, with the tops being around 50 defects/100 vehicles, but I'd rather take a Benz or an LR with a radio button that needs repair than a "perfect" Acura or Lexus.

    If you want an LR/RR, go for it.

    We've had one after another over the years. They've all been good, but the latest generation has been great (for us). I've heard the horror stories, but we've never experienced them.

    I am not sure why the Touareg gets so little love around here but by any metric for which the platform was designed, it is the superior vehicle. The first gen was rock-solid, as long as you didn't get the first year. There is a reason why the Stanford team used a Touareg to win DARPA's Grand Challenge.
