    Tried a GL when we was looking for the previous family car the 350 is just slightly too slow but the 63 is OMG!!! it was frighteningly fun but sadly also way too expensive (for my spec requirements). My overall impression of them is the ML rides a hell of a lot better on bumpy roads. Money no object I would spec another ML over the GLS.

    You should also look into the new RR Discovery its rather nice. and they do one with the F-Type engine in it which will be no slouch.

    Good Morning All,

    thanks for the feedback.

    What I like about the GLS is the size of the boot, we drive for winter and summer holidays and no matter how big the car is always seem to have a full boot, it also fits a 3rd row of seats nicely which is good for going on trips together with the old folks

    Mordy are you speaking from personal experience regarding reliability of the Range Rover ? coming from the sticks, I know that Range Rovers have never been famous for reliability, and am surprised to see them quoted as more reliable than a German car.

    I would be happy to take a RR Vogue, but simply don't trust their reliability

    Milan.

    p.s. by the way it was noted the sad gets who applauded Brillo for his musing

    Decent RR, about £70k and no options needed. And it will be more reliable, and you'll look cool, unlike with the Mercedes, where you will look like a huge bell-end.
    Instead of spending £74K on that, why not spend £4K on this 7-seat 4x4, and spend the £70K saved on travelling the world, or buying up the UK after Brexit completes?

    F-Paces are selling well and 'car of the year', not my 'cup of tea' so to speak, preferring the Sportbrake for load lugging (although wait for the 'R' version if you want some umph).

    Get'em while they're hot,and before the import tariffs are applied (for all our EU 'friends').

    it goes against Plan B's tax bill over 5 years, so 74k will help more than 4k

    Word to the wise Benesy. Rather than throwing money at a bigger boot, simply throw away some of the junk you insist upon dragging around with you on your hols.

    You will save yourself a fortune and can then upgrade your body armour and underwear for the next time you plan on visiting Central London.

    Another left field idea is a Tesla model X. Loads of room in them and a rather nice car to drive.
