The problem with Discos is their weight - 2.8 tonnes unladen. That's a lot to haul around.

Our 110 is a heavy beast at 2 tonnes but that's a lot less than a Disco!

RC - we looked (and tested) a 90 but they are quite stupidly impractical for a family.

No rear doors, no access to rear seats from the front (front seats don't fold) so the only way of getting to the back seats is via the rear door. So you'd need to clear any luggage (e.g. a buggy) every time you wanted to use the back seats/put a baby in/whatever.

I prefer the looks of them but they are hard work to live with if you have a family. If not, ideal vehicles!

M3 - XS gets every "normal" option as standard (heated seats, windscreen, aircon, real carpets, a steering wheels, a roof, 1/2 leather, leccy windows, a bonnet, etc) and weighs a tad over two tonnes... I suspect the chequer plate and rock sliders/side rails we have add a good 50kgs though.
