I purchased a 2005 HSE7 white w/tan interior (currently 4,500 miles)
Go with the car the fits your lifestyle and gives you that "mmmmmmmmm" feeling when you see and drive it. We currently still have are 99 Disco II 133,000 miles. Land Rovers give me that "mmmmmmm" feeling plus with three kids under 7 years old, we camp, we explore the Sierras, or any dirt road in the west. If my LR3 has issues it goes in the shop,"under warranty", and I deal with it!

I will probably go offroading about 5-6 times a year, and even that would be only light off-roading (provincial parks, etc.)
Other than that, I've only got the Canadian winters and screwy road conditions to deal with...
My wife and I have got a really hard decision ahead of us.. One of the other factors is that the LR3 is a (relatively) new body and platform, while porsche is doing a new redesign for 2007... I don't really want to get into one now, and have it look dated within a year..
LR has an appeal because they don't overtly change body and platform styles all that much over time, so even if you have an older model, it is difficult to distinguish from a new one (for non-experts, of course.. )
Does anyone have an estimate or idea of what the sales numbers are for a LR3 and Cayenne in the North American market?

You can go to the www.ford.com and look under investor information; then look for sales numbers links. I have no idea about Porsche...I think they are a private company

They are private so no idea at all. I am sure that Land Rover Sells probably a little more LR3's then Porsche sells cheyenes but the car has been out long enough now that you see many more of the porsches.
#3328 of 4548 Sales for the new year...

#3329 of 4548 Grommet ?: Rear tires do not look like they are setting at right angles
Feb 06, 2006 (3:32 pm)
Yesterday when my wife was pulling away (2005 HSE7, it looked like her left rear tire was not setting at a right angle to the pavement;it looked like the top of the tire was tilted-in. Do you have any thoughts or history with what I am observing?

Was she in access mode when she pulled away?
When the LR3's are sitting low because of the nature of the air suspension in the rear the tires will sometimes sit at funny angles. But they should move back when the air suspensioni goes up.

Wow - White car - how do you keep it clean? LOL. My wife and I have decided against the following exterior colours:
White, Black (or anything dark for that matter), red.
So far silver appeals to me the most (I know, EVERYONE gets silver - but when it gets dirty you really can't tell - is it silver, or just a darker silver?)
Just curious if anyone can comment on the interior - is the black interior (carpets, leather, etc) hard to keep clean? I've got two (small) dogs that shed a lot(a lot like big dogs ) , and the rear seat covers are looking like a good option...

What brand and size tyres are on the newest LR3 HSE with the 19" rims? I'm curious what a replacement is going to cost...?
#3333 of 4548 iPod connection for Logic7 H-K stereo?
Feb 07, 2006 (7:40 am)
In the quick specs on the web site, it lists the middle-range stereo as having an AUX port for iPod connectivity - but doesn't mention it in the Logic7 specs - any ideas?
