It's a snazzy detachable swan neck jobbie, with fold away electrics :wink:

Looking forward to doing some towing with it, 262PS/580Nm and 3500kg load limit. I just hope the MPG isn't too eye watering :lol:
Ah....I have that too; but it just stays on the car :roll:

If you prefer the Classic look to your Range Rover but need a little more go than the standard car - how about this ?

It's actually a bit lighter than a standard D3 but slightly heavier than a standard Classic. I can't imagine the fuel economy could be much worse than an old P38?

I can certainly recommend the Kia's, i have been Aftersales Manager for them as well as other brands for the last 4 years, and on the whole are pretty reliable, more so than Land Rover, who i was Aftersales Manager for 8 years !!
