It is such a fun great car for cruising. The brakes don't exactly stop on a dime but the comfort is fantastic. Wouldn't recommend one if you travel on the highway a lot. The touch screen is great, sound system good and they seats fold down in an instant if you need to move something. I love this car but it is a bit unique looking. Now you get full maintenance and the dealerships even have movie theatres inside, they will pick up your car and basically do almost anything for you. very nice people and being that you buy their top end they service you before others.

And believe me, the difference is HUGE!!! They ride like a 58 Chevy Apache with those steel spring aftermarket conversion kits installed.....

Has anyone heard anything about pricing for the 06 RR. It would seem that they are going to have to raise prices on the base engine RR, so the can find a price segment for the RR Sport. I would also think that the Supercharged RR will be in the 90+ price range.

Not sure about price, but from surfing the US landrover site saw 2 really well put together videos one of the new range sport and one of the 2006 supercharged range, showing off all the new goodies, looks great....
seems like the 2006 models will be coming sooner rather than later given they are showing 3 minute videos and have detailed info on the site already....
The Uk landrover site also has new info on the sport......

Thanks for your comments, and I apologize for not responding sooner. I had talked myself out of a RR, an associate had a steering column come loose on his at 70mph on the Interstate. According to him, he had to manually hold the column in place while his wife drove (her car), That seems pretty extreme though as far as I know he has no axe to grind with LR or RR.
But anyway I am back because this vehicle is so compelling, inspite of all the glitches, breakdowns and meltdowns, I still want one of these trucks. And I hate to admit it, but it's all about ego. This truck makes little sense (for me), other than I will look great in it. I mean really, a Land Cruiser will be perfect, an all weather vehicle to meet my business and personal travel obligations, bulletproof, and bank vault reliable.......perfect! Just not as cool as owning a Range Rover would be. Shallow but true!
I thank you for helping to build a case for RR, btw, why did you state you would not recommend it for the highway??

the turbo 2006 Rangie is supposed to be over $100K. ouch.
I talked to a sales guy at a local auto-show a couple of days ago and he said ship dates for the big RR are September and for the Sport, June.
#586 of 1002 2006 RR Sport fold flat 2nd. row seats?
Jan 15, 2005 (12:28 pm)
I posted this ? in the Sport forum, but realized that there are many more eyeballs here. Sorry for the cross post.
Looks like the new RR Sport underpinnings and interior is more LR3 than RR. Does anyone know if the 2nd. row seats fold flat like the new LR3?

Have you consider the Mercedes G500?? It's unique along with awesome off-roading ability (just in case you need it).
#588 of 1002 2003RR brake pad wear
Feb 11, 2005 (12:46 pm)
what are folks finding mileage/months to be when pads require changing. my garage notified me that I am at 2mm on front and 3mm on rear. My vehicle was bought in May 2003 and has ~21K miles.
Cost: $1202 to replace front/rear
