Goodbye My Xoutposter!

I want to say good bye to my fellow Xoutposters. It's been a great time reading and sharing X5 expierences! I've gone across the pond and with a 2011 Range Rover Sport. I've had it now for about a month and can say it has it's unique advantages. I can also say that each vehicle has it's own cool features as well. The breaking point for me was the constant battery issues I was having even with tendering it. Will I have it with the Rover, maybe. I do like the style and wanted to go with something different.

You never know I may come back in a couple of years. Thanks again.

I LOVE it! Every day I wonder if I would have rather gotten the RRS (SC) over my 50i. I still like the look, drive and awkward straight up driving position of the RR better. My previous experience with one was a maintenance nightmare and I just couldn't get past the inconveniences (but trust me, I thought long and hard about it). Hope you fare better than I.

Good luck with it. Its beautiful!

I really like the RR, and very seriously considered an SC myself. I like the way it drives, the visibility from the drivers seat, and it's aesthetics are also very nice. It's handling characteristics are of course different from my X5, but I can deal with that too.

Maybe someday. On the other hand, maybe the next X5 will be so compelling I'll stay with the line :-)

Hope your RRS will be a good experience.

My brother is driving a 2010 RRS, V8 Diesel, and is having constant issues with camera system, turbocharger and folding mirrors.

Hope yours will be better

Congrats. Beautiful car. Our 2011 Range Rover is now almost a year old, and has NEVER had one issue. Never. 100% flawless.

My 2006 Range Rover Sport Supercharged was a nightmare, but they have come a long way! Several of my friends have newer or new RR Sport both HSE and SC, and they have had zero problems. The new engines and transmissions are awesome. I think better than BMW and Mercedes!!
