At different times I've had a 99 Discovery, 2003 Discovery, 2006 RR SC (SC=supercharged), 2010 RR SC, and recently bought a NAS Defender 110 that needs some work. I still have the 03 Discovery, 10 RR, and D110. If you follow the maintenance guidelines you have ZERO problems with landrovers. Shit breaks because dumbasses don't realize you HAVE TO (absolutely have to) do the services when you are supposed to. It is a full time 4x4 vehicle and most people aren't used to have their differentials, transmission, etc serviced like you have to service them for a 4x4. I do all of that work myself and it is easy. Many LR forums that can show you how to do all of that in under an hour and you get to know your vehicle. I'd definitely go LR as there's seriously nothing else like them.
Whether I'm driving my 03 discovery that is only probably worth 10K or so or my new RR SC everyone loves them and talks to you about them when you pull up somewhere. Nice conversation starter, comfortable, luxurious, and right at home anywhere you take it. I can't wait to finish building the D110. I was going to buy a Porsche GT3 or something similar but I'd probably kill myself with one of those and I'd be afraid of working on it myself. When I finish the NAS defender i'll have 30-40K in it to make it absolutely perfect and it'll be worth 60 easy.
Go for the LR3. My neighbor has one that he has modified a little bit I could shoot some pics of tonight if you'd like. He absolutely loves it
