One thing I am curious about is how long these incredible trucks remain with the same owner.

Depends on the owner. I am sure some people who can afford a $150k truck are still "Rover guys", and will happily drive it for years. Other people stash the truck at the Hamptons house and it probably stays there until they go to look for it one summer and all they find is a set of seats surrounded by a pile of sand and rust. Other owners will need a new dose of ego gratification and it will get sold on in a year or two to make room for the next toy.

I need one of phones that records the length of the conversation in minutes and seconds!
I wonder if they come with a built in calculator?

Not disputing cost to build or ultimate market price, however why is the high end Rover build market different from the true enthusiast market?

Define "true enthusiast"... And then get ready for the pissing match.

Like I said before, among the buyers of top dollar LR's there are certainly enthusiasts. There are also buyers who look at the LR simply as a practical tool. And there are those who want to display a "message" about themselves -- I have a lot of money, I am adventurous, I am different than my neighbor with the GWagen, yada yada. That's no different than any other strata of Land Rover buyers as far as I can tell.

The difference may be that among the "message" group and the "buying a tool" group, there is a willingness to see the attraction, benefit or even advantage of other vehicles. Among the faithful, there are those that bleed green and regard any deviation from the Gospel of Solihull as blasphemous and evil. Fortunately they mostly stay on DWeb!

You might want to ease up on the sales pitch.

Because they have more money than they know what to do with whereas an "enthusiast" usually knows more what to do, but doesn't have the money to do it

Not to hijack the thread but it seemed pertinent to my current situation. My D90 SW began giving me trouble at the beginning of 2010. With paying off grad loans, saving for a ring, and saving for a house the D90 got the shaft. I drove it sparingly until about this time last year. It has been under a cover since. Best I can ascertain it needs some electrical work and may have a fuel pump issue. Regardless at this point I plan on spending around $15-20k.

My hope is have a total repaint done (not show quality but respectable), have all mechanicals gone through and freshened including rebuilding the supercharger and replacing the cats. The truck is solid otherwise and has only minor rust in the door bottoms and the tailgate and on the rear crossmember - all surface which could all probably be cured cheaply during the repaint. Interior needs nothing outside of a headliner.

I guess the million dollar question is with a good indie/reasonable rate is $20k too little for such a project? Or the flipside is - what does that buy in the minds of many of you? I'd love to do the work myself but time and my modest skills seem to be the limiting factor.
