Just as an example, I recently purchased a new 2008 LR3 HSE with everything for $40,000. This price also included the maintenance package, as the car falls under the 2008 warranty package including regular schedule maintance for the first 50,000 miles.
I have also seen loads of new 2008 LR3 SEs for the $33 to $37 range, depending on the options. $37,000 for a used 2008 is a little crazy. Although, the buy out price may be out of the dealers hands. My original buy out price was controlled by the Land Rover Capital, not the dealer.

My lease is also up, and Land Rover Capital will not budge on the residual either. If I buy a non-titled 08 LR3, it still gets the scheduled maintainance? As well as 0.9% financing, and $1500 owner loyalty?

Does the LR4 replace the LR3 in 2010, or is it an additional model?

The LR4 replaces the LR3. Production on the LR3 has ceased and LR4 is already being produced. They are on their way over to the States as I write this.

Why have they done this, I can see no real difference.
All seems a bit silly frankly

Yes, if you buy an untitled 2008 the vehicle still falls under the maintainace program. While, I am not sure about the loyalty program. That depends on the dealer and the customer.

Edmunds doesn't have much info on their site (yet) so check out the following links here and here.
They've updated a lot of the cosmetics, electronics and the engine from Jaguar and made it more upscale (many of the cubbyholes I'm use to are now gone). It looks like they are making it more "soccer mom" friendly and less utilitarian. Which is good or bad depending on who you are. What they didn't do and I'm very disappointed about is improve gas milage; i.e. bring over any of the turbo diesels. That may be a deal breaker for me when my LR3 lease is up.
The demo units should be arriving in dealers in the next couple of weeks and I think shipping dates are in October.

My question is related to an 08 LR2. I'm at the end of my lease and trying to figure out how much approx I'll owe in fees when I turn it in. I know what the turn in fee is and excess mileage but not sure how they charge for scratches......there's one on the front bumper that's about 6" and some on the rims over 3-4". There's also a tiny nick on the windshield. Do you have any idea what the charges might be, would it be cheaper to get it all fixed on my own? I'm still debating on whether to buy it out, considering these fees and went 2000 miles over. The buyout is $22774.

Hi jt1977. If you leased your LR2 back in 2008, I believe that your deal was run through Land Rover Capital Group rather than Chase (which LR uses today). Here's a link to its excess wear and tear guide to help you evaluate whether you will have to pay an sort of fine for excess wear and tear:
