well after the range has become a money pit -- i put it up for sale and like the looks of the bmw 645, have my eye on a couple...i test drove one today and wasnt very impressed, the ride was kinda rough but it had some getty up...when i got in the range and drove away i realized how much more luxurious of a ride the range is...id like to keep the range but i fear driving it because of worrying about whats gonna go wrong next and cost me...if i could find a reliable extended warrany i maybe would consider keeping it...what do you guys think, keep the range or sell it for the bimmer..

Why not just get a a new or CPO Range for the money you'd spend on the 645. I mean they are two completely different vehicles, you're talking a two door coupe vs a 3 ton SUV. Which do you really need or want, not like these go head to head with each other for customers generally.

Plus your RR is made of 90% BMW parts, its majority BMW X5.... so if you are unhappy with it's quality you should checkout the bimmer forums for the similar stories!

Give it two weeks and you will be looking UP at Range Rover drivers and wishing you could swap seats. UK road are not race tracks, so why hard jolting suspension just for 90mph corners that don't exist, and anyway the undisputed King of the UK Road is what your driving already.

Think about it - what do look at more on the road: common old 635/645/650's or Stately Range Rovers....

Im leaning toward a newer model under warranty...i dont really need the suv but may get a boat in the near future so it would be handy for the towing..

i just like the looks of the 645 and a convertible would be nice since its sweet weather now down in s-florida.

One of the best written and well spoken things I have seen on this board in ages. I;ve gone from a P38 to a XJS12 during my rebuild. I am truely looking UP at Rangies and frustrated that I can't keep the **** tyres from spinning on the newly wet roads around here. A BMW will be no different. Do you want something fast, powerful and stiff for your 35MPH commutes and errrands, or something upright, comfy and sure footed?
