New toy, non BMW (apart from engine apparently, and sat nav)

After buying the 335d I decided I needed something a little more winter friendly. Especially as I sold the S4, so now I only had one car, and it was RWD. Not gonna get me very far in the white stuff.

Was originally looking for a diesel 4x4 to run on veg oil. Had to be an S plate or newer to get my plate on. And wasn't looking to spend any more than 2500.

So, fuck that. Upped the budget and bought a V8 instead. As you do. Missed the V8 of the S4 too much.

So I bought a 2000 plate Range Rover Vogue. All the toys, everything seems to work fine, for now. I have no doubt it will be a money pit, but I don't care.








So this is my new daily run around.

Oh yeah, it has 20's and an LPG conversion too...

I wish 2.5k

Had to up the budget to get the 4.6 Vogue, under 100k, with an LPG conversion. Still, not much will beat it for the 4200 I paid for it.

Not a bad little deal that!

My Volvo C70 does winter duties, she's only done 90000 - still a mere baby in the life of a Volvo.

Fair enough. Apparently the wheels are X5 units, but I haven't had them off to check.

Well, as promised, finally got some interior pics. Got a new phone, so hopefully these are a little better:




Sat Nav is pretty basic, but 2012 maps:
