I think they echo the sentiments of most 4x4 owners who use their truck for anything more than the school run. One line made me laugh though -
"...... in his old Landrover 110 300TDI." In Land Rover terms a 300Tdi is cutting edge :lol:

I bet a the new discovery is one awesome bit of kit but a tad pricey to go off roading .
build your own http://www.landrover.co.uk/vehicles/discovery/hse-luxury/index.html
mine just cost me £64,268.02p :o bloody but it now buttons :D

but they are right in the article , the bobble hats moan about us driving down by ways but want rescuing from their villages in the middle of no-where when we get a flurry of snow.
you can't please some people :|
