    You prefer to "fly under the radar," do you? That is simply a pile of rubbish coming from the owner of a 911 and an E-Type!

    Neville -
    As someone who is from England, I find it strange that you have such a strong dislike towards the E-Type. However, you are entitled to your opinion. As for the 911, it is the quintessential sports car - in terms of both looks and performance. It has humble lines, drives like a true enthusiast's machine, and has the performance to match.

    Regards,

    Abraham

    Who the fuck would drive a six year old Rover as their DD? That's the fucking craziest thing I've heard in months.

    It's a company car.

    What company has a six year old Rover in their carpool? That's a fully depreciated asset. Get it the fuck off the balance sheet and out of the service bay.

    It works well - we're a very small company and are planning on upgrading to a few X5s. The cars only have around 60,000 miles on them as of now - they're not used that much as we all have personal cars. That's just the "DD" I posted because it's a regular car. I drive the DB9 frequently as well.

    So if they're not used that much it's really not your daily driver, now is it?

    Anyone else smell bullshyte?

    would a RR even qualify as a long term asset?

    I'm sorry but this statement is almost absurd as douche on the last page calling the 911 ugly. I see a ton of 06-09 Range Rover Sports on the road. That said, having owned an 06 RRS myself, it's not a vehicle I would feel terribly comfortable owning outside the warranty period. And I do find it strange to be using that as a company car, unless of course you own the company and you leased that through the business for yourself

    It's an 08 with almost 100,000kms. My 06 only had 70,000kms and I put maybe 500kms a month on the thing and it was my daily.
