Thinking of getting another sport

Been looking for a Series 2 for a while now and think the reality doesn't live up to the childhood dream so..........

Have turned my attention to another Sport but not a RR version Laughing

What I fancy is a Lexus RC 300h F SPORT in Azure Blue Mr. Green

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

The back end is fugly but the front is even worse............. it also has the same front and rear as the new LC500 Coupe too and the whole of that is awful (but the engine sounds great!). 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.
2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, but not for much longer........
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

I can understand that muddy. I'm driving a Censored Disco Sport again because garage didn't do their job last time. I wanted it sorted before an upcoming trip so despite promising myslef not to send the car back until service and put up with their Censored one extra time, I booked it in. So far the signs tell me it's going to be deja vu, even though I explained to the service advisor everything that happened last couple of times and that I didn't want a repeat Banging Head

Too bad no good indie is convenient for me otherwise I would have switched by now, despite the warranty and desire to keep FLRSH. Current: MY16 RRS2 3.0 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic, Carpathian Grey & Santorini Black Sliding Pano/Ebony & Ivory 2 Tone

Thanks Nick - I was thinking of going to Specsavers tomorrow reading comments Laughing

I've seen one in the flesh and sat in passenger seat and thought it wasn't that bad - coupled with mid 40s-50s mpg, £20 pa VED, 0-60 of 8.4 seconds, impressive reliability/customer service and 5 years warranty on hybrid bits I'm tempted Mr. Green

I'm looking at used f-type too but my previous JLR experience is making me nervous - plus the extra £10-20k for older vehicle, low 20s mpg and £335 VED Sad

Bkhk - sorry I'm not a fan of German jelly moulds - not enough individuality but admit they do drive well - they also used to be well engineered too but that appears to have slipped in recent years

The Lexus is more striking - some hate it obviously but it's grown on me since I got the Mitsubishi

The Mitsubishi has done everything I ask of it and nearly a year has passed without any stress

I'm about to release some money from property and even if I keep the Mitsubishi and buy the RC I will have spent less than a RRS on a nice Coupe and a SUV for winter/practical stuff neither of which will drive me insane visiting dealer with issues

One life - live it........

Don't waste it driving courtesy cars while the dealer lets half wits ruin yours Embarassed

Sorry fkarim - you have my sympathy Bow down
