Traded in the wife’s Range Rover Sport for a Vogue last week.

10 hour drive down to Suffolk and a very enjoyable drive back home again the following day.

A lovely and sublime vehicle Thumb

2014 Porsche Boxster 981

I had a sport loaner for a month (high spec with only 400 miles on the clock) when my L405 was off the road with a seized engine after only 15k miles and 1 month after its first service Rolling Eyes

I did not like the sport at all compared to the L405, lets face it its too bulky for a sport and now where near as imperious a drive as the L405.

The L405 was one of the nicest cars I’ve ever owned as a daily but I would never own one out of warranty so I chopped it in recently before it got 3 years old.

Great car, enjoy Thumb

Yes, the warranty is crucial and open wallet surgery would certainly apply if one were to be caught out.

How does the Sport compare to the FF RR?

The FF is the most luxurious vehicle I have ever driven and is an effortless exercise in motoring excess Very Happy

The Sport was smaller, firmer and felt generally cheaper than this leviathan does, albeit the FF is no slouch and lunges towards the horizon when asked.

My wife had the Sport for 4 years and I drove it occasionally during that time; however I have found myself looking for excuses to take the FF for runs since we got it.

It is certainly on a par with Bentley and S Class Mercedes for comfort and serenity when swallowing up the miles. Thumb

I would echo that, different class to the sport.

Much better than a Bentley saloon to drive though Wink
