Here we go again. dont change your mind this time round .

the Range rover sport officially is starting at 85lacs and goes upward depending on the options chosen. a dealer was offering a 30 km done RR sport for 78lacs.

OH ! that is bad. i just read DVD from the guys so i presumed movies. dont you think in the 530 it would be pointless to have the movies as it has a small control screen only. you would require the external entertainment package option right. my mother wanted it for the ML but i refused. i find it pointless with our kind of roads. it would just keep skipping or hang.

They have a rear entertainment pack like the 7 series .
They are charging close to 3.5 lakhs which i think is quite expensive sinse i would be driving...

That is not possible i just cant believe it. i have seen my friends doing crazy things with their Cayenne's. the cayenne has more ground clearance than the tucson and with the airmatic suspension it raises higher. the cayanne also is more powerful than the tucson so it has to climb. maybe your uncle was being carefull with the car. spares have to ordered if anything goes wrong. so this removes have the fun from these cars. you can see the Cayenne offroading videos to see what i am talking about. the X5 i hope would pull through. dont expect the Q7 to do that, it is bigger and heavier than the other two.

yeah that is the worst thing if your going to be driving. we too had the options for the 7 and the X5 and now the ML. we did not take it for any. it made no sense to us. Criminal waste of money according to me.
the ML is the only one thats going to be self driven for 500kms one trip, and even if we do go to pune or other places our friends are always there. so what do i do with entertainment pack.

speedy the cayenne was driven by me and tucson also. i even set the cayenne to full off roading settings. Today took the x5.performed far better than my tucson and even more than the cayenne.When i was driving the x5 it hit badly under the bumper and broke the under protection.And then it showed on the screen that steering needed serious checking.

i have informed my friend in Porsche, and he could not believe it too.
the X5 does not have skid plates ( i think thats what its called), they are options that not many choose including ours.. these protect the bumpers and the drive train from below incase of offroading. The X5 is a capable car for this but i feel a tad bit fragile. i wonder how the ML would hold in such conditions. i would know soon as the car comes in tomorrow.
there is a nack of how to take the car through this sort of surface without damageing it. check out the Range Rover experience. they teach you haw to take cars through the rough terrains.
