I'm pleased to announce that after a years absence, i've just bought my 5th Range Rover and after all the snow we've had in the UK recently, not a minute too soon!

Previously I've had four 'classic' models, ranging from a '70's two door with a Perkins diesel engine to my last, a lovely 1993 (K reg) Vogue SE with air suspension. However, this is a first for me as i've finaly plucked up the courage to get a 1996 'P38' model.

She's a 4.0 SE model fitted with 18 inch alloys and LPG

Just driven her back home, some 130 miles and i'm chuffed to bits! Sooo nice to be up high again and the refinement over the classic models really surprised me as well. Came with a full MOT so (hopefully) no major mechanical worries but does have a couple of small niggles, namely the rear wash and cruise control doesn't work and I'm getting a warning about a rear window but other than that the long drive home in freezing temperatures was a breeze.

Averaged 18.1 mpg including driving through central London so reasonable to run on LPG as well.

Evenin,

Links don't work sadly, I once bumped into a local in a pub in Wales who said he once had a classic with a Perkins engine fitted. He also told his more sober mate to punch me because I had a range rover with air suspention and because its not possible to weild stuff to P38's .... strange bloke.

Cool, tidy looking RR.

I'm not sure I've ever noticed those plastic wheel arch trims on annother p38 before.

Yes, they set it off nicely don't you think? Will give some much needed protection for when she does some 'laneing later in the year too.
