90K miles later, we traded the 99 Discovery II for the LR2, SE, Narvik Blk, Alpacha, Cold Pack, Light Pack, and Teck Pack. I drove all the others and kept coming back to Land Rover. Had great service from the DISCO and have 550 miles on the LR2. Fun to drive, much better MPG than the Disco. The key system is a bit funky, but if you let the vehicle recieve the key instead of shoving it in, there will be no probs. Added the roof rack, cross bars, mud flaps and trailer hitch for bike rack. Drives smooth and plenty of power from the 6 cyl. Not the boss hog SUV for sure, but for the mid-size it is a winner.
Interior, radio, tranny is smooth, warranty (you can extend it down the road..recommend it highly), back up assistance.
Bigger cargo area, but it is a mid- size; memory seat and mirror, they sunroof pop up screen will be full of bugs soon, make the key system a no brainer
