Rrc lwb?

Guys, I'm considering a RRC LWB. I'd like to find a 95 in great condition to possibly be a daily driver. Copley has some nice ones. What are the thoughts on these and do you know a forum like D-90 to research info. I realize this is mainly Defenders but I also know everyone here likes them as well. Thoughts or opinions would be great. Also price info as the nicer ones seem to be a premium.

range rovers dot net.
the air suspension can be a bit finicki at this age, proper diagnosis is a must soyou will not end falling in to a money pit.
general issues as many rovers of this vintage, floor rot, drips and leaks, bushings etc.
some electronic components are borderline no longer avalable new/difficult to find used.
frames not as much of concern unless it has lived long periods of winter in north east.
best of luck.

Either of those Copley has is a winner. The 95 grew up in the southeast and already has a coil conversion. I am partial to the non soft dash trucks, I would take the green one they have for sale. I love my Classic, nothing else like it in the world. Its essentially your Defender with a lot of electronic crap that gets a bad rep. Parts are getting hard to fine but are still available.

No airbags and a less than ideal HVAC system. I really like not having the old dash feels more roverish the big gauges in the disco rrc feel like a porsche, not that it is a badthing.

I have a '95 LWB and a '91 Hunter. Love all the space and the stability of the LWB. I find myself driving it as much as my 2010. Just do preventative maintenance and it'll treat you well.
