    Don, looks like you are having more fun driving the Aston Matrin *on-road* than in the passenger seat of the LR3 off-road! Nice photos eventhough it is an "off-Road" thread! Where are the video clips ??!!?? youtube 'em up.

    ps to myself... glad that I programmed the forum to scroll right when someone uploads large images.

    Sorry about that - I couldn't figure out how to scale them properly and I don't have any image manipulation tools on my work computer.

    Yeah, the morning was tooting around in sports cars - Aston Martin DB9, Bentley GTC, Bentley GT Flying Spur, Jaguar XK convertible, and a Jaguar XJ-R.

    Afternoon was spent running round the woods and rocks in LR3's, RR's and RRS's. No Defenders though

    I didn't do itmyself, but one of the guys took the RRSSC on the skid pad and did some high-speed laps in it. Very impressive if you're one of those who buy into the concept of a high-speed Rover..

    No biggie! I'll edit the photos for you and re-post 'em on our server at a more forum friendly size.

    I guess I'm one of those track hungry guys... Floggin a RR Sport around the track would be fun .

    Is that the ARB winch bumper for the LR3? I like the look of it, but not sure how you would see the spindle if it is covered by the bumper? How would you know if you have fouled the line?

    Yes it is the ARB - its visability is a bit slim, but you can see. I use synthetic line so it is easier to handle. Bill Burke did suggest I cut a slightly larger access hole in the top of the bumper.

If you wouldn't mind snapping off a few shots that would be great! [see if he has any mod'ed 2006 MINI Cooper S's hanging around as well - my daily driver ]
    I have a modified MINI S here at Robison Service - we're a Dinan dealer.

    A brand new LR3 (Discovery Series 3 in Australia) was part of a convoy that crossed the Simpson Desert, which is a big trip that takes months and months of preparation, as it is an expedition style trip.

    The D3 was very reliable and the only vehicle amongst a bunch of Discovery II vehicles.

    Here is a couple of videos for your viewing pleasure:
