It was probably a service loaner. We are selling those for 10,000 dollars off sticker as well of the V6 models.
The low end torque of the V6 is actually slightly higher then the V8 model so that is why the V6 model feels more peppey. The V6 model is actually easier to drive off-road as the higher low end torque means you need to use less throttle control.
I can almost let a V6 LR3 idle over our entire off-road course.

Yeah that happens sometimes. Normaly service loaners have to stay in service for four months but for a while early in the quarter Land Rover had a one month in and out program.
Ended up with a lot of V6 cars that were only used as loaners for one month and so got very low mileage.

How much $$$ does the dealer get from Land Rover if he places an LR3 into service as a "service loaner?" Is this "allowance" transferable from dealer to dealer if the car is actually sold by another dealer? In my case, I purchased a "new" V6 LR3 SE that had 300 miles on it when I took delivery. My dealer had to get the car from another dealer about 50 miles away, since he had no V6's of his own. Accordingly, I figured he probably had to pay a "transfer fee" of some kind. I never figured the car to have been a "service loaner." Now I think it probably was (based on the mileage).
I originally thought I got a great deal at almost $7,500.00 off MSRP. Now I am doubting my "great deal" more and more...

I think you are overdoing this a little...this forum gave us all good basis to negotiate a nice deal...and by all measurements $7,500 off the MSRP is great deal. You count in transfer fee so you are just a liittle over $8,000 off the MSRP...c'mon...that's great...

And one more thing...if you bought your car (as I think you did) you missed out on $1,000 extra rebate they offer ONLY on leasing...!!!
