Picked Up a New LR4

Will post some pictures soon. We got a Fuji white 2012. Got a good deal and got out of a lease at the same time. This is the wife's car. I'm stuck with her car until I can get myself a Ford Raptor next year. I still have the LE so I shouldn't complain!

All depends on how you want to use it. IMHO, LR4 is the best value for the buck. Much more practical than the RR and more refined than the LR3. Besides, new RR looks like a ford exploder!

Congrats on the lux LR4! Love them in white!

Three words..."two year old"! We have a two year old son, LR4 is more utilitarian. I lve the new RR look though. Will be interested to see if the Sport gets similar looks.

You'll find more options for goodies like upgrading to 18s so you have more wheel choices and aftermarket goodies like sliders with the LR4. Congrats

Great choice, I think the white looks great. I would be interested in you impressions of the truck. My wife is thinking of a new vehicle and it looks like it's between the Audi Q7 and LR4 for her.

I had an LR3 on 22's and what I hated about it after I bought it is that everyone else had one only a few years after I got mine. They become too common. Like even still, I don't see too many 991's out there, and by the time there is a lot of them, I would have sold mine long before.

I guess I'm not so worried about having something exclusive for a daily since we've the Defender. I had a Q7 as well and I love both of trucks. They're very different. The Q7 is more car like which is what my wife loves about the LR4, it sits like an SUV. I made her give up her old LR3 for a Mercedes GL and I think she's just now forgiven me...We brought our son home from the hospital in that LR3. Funny though, my dealer only had one white LR4 left, and it was (white, tan interior with black piano wood) which was the exact same as our LR3. Guess it was meant to be!

Nice, the LR4 is awesome. I had a LR3 and the LR4 seems to be the refined version of that truck. At least Land Rover is keeping a classic body styling with the LR4 as that new Range looks like a Japanese Ford Explorer.

That I am! Plus the new almond/arabica is darker than our old alpaca color. We got the TV's in the back too which is what my wife was most excited about. Easy play features and wireless headphones = happy parents.
