Cool, I like your girlfriend already
Reliability has never been Land Rover's strongest point, as I'm sure you know. Forewarned is forearmed so they say...
In all honestly, if she only wants an around-town commuter I'd suggest a Freelander over any other Landie. If what she really wants is something to intimidate other drivers and drive over gutters 'coz she can, then she might as well do it in some style... go the Rangie

there could well be one around here, but this page Detailed Model Year Specs for Range Rovers at Rangerovers.net is useful too.

Don't think Diesel RR's were available in Oz until the L322 in 2003. UK had diesel RRC in late 80's I think, and all P38A years (1995-2002).

As what? I love my P38A and wouldn't go back to an RRC as my daily driver. RRC's are great cars for sure, but they don't compare to P38A's for comfort and function. Sure, the P38A has a lot more electronics than an RRC, and L322 has even more again. That's progress... like comparing a 60 Series LandCruiser to a 100 Series, and then the 200 Series.
Would I have a RR Sport as my daily driver? You betcha, as long as it was still under warranty.
Cheers, Paul.
