    My mate has the 2l 8v one of those, the calibra/cav engine iirc, and omg it was slow! It was horrendously underpowered for such a big car. I remember us all going to Penriff over the A66 and it struggled like hell on the upwards section - HGVs were overtaking him! lol

    Yes, I've seen those...and one that had a turbo..well, the turbo whine, but no apparent benefit..heh. That said, they do have a following, there's LOTS of Vx engines you can bung in them, and the bits are cheap...

    Can people in the know give me a list of what to check to make sure I don't get stung?

    My comment on the Freelander 1 is the lack of head height in the front, if your 6ft plus no chance of getting comfortable unless you got fully adjustable seats which seemingly were only on a few models / extra, I cannot sit comfy in ours to drive it and im 6ft 1, its not much fun doing any mileage with a crick in your neck.

    Boot space is also a joke, its tiny for such a large vehicle, I joke that we cannot get a weeks shopping in the boot without piling it high, my toolbox and box of general IT Junk I carry with me for spares just about fills the boot in ours (without stacking up obviously!) so its a bit of a joke in my opinion. The Freelander 2 is a better vehicle but will be out of your price range I suspect as its too new.
