Check out Vinny on route 17 in Paramus, NJ. http://www.roverspecialist.com/. I know he's cheaper than the dealer - but not that much.

Vinny is a very nice guy and honest, but not that much cheaper. Manhattan LR is by far the worst dealer, they are a disgrace to LR.

I think Vinny used to be an LR Technician at one of the dealers and decided to open his own practice. His shop is like an LR showroom with everything from Series trucks, Defenders, Discos and RRs. I actually need to take my D1 there soon for some steering issues.

As far as your D90, I really don't think you need a "ROVER" mechanic for it. D90s are the most basic modern-day rovers out there, a seasoned veteran mechanic should have no problem fixing it. Remember, there's tons of people here to help you diagnose a problem.
