What can I replace it with?

My Daimler gets sold this weekend. It was the perfect car and immaculate in every way, but keeping it 20 minutes away has not been a good idea for usage.

So I'm looking for something else. I had thoughts of a Range Rover, but anything less than a couple of years old is not that appealing, and any model newer is horrendously expensive for something that will only be used in the wet, or on an occasional basis.

If you had an unlimited choice for a budget of around US$20,000, what would you buy? (Non-American, sorry, we just don't get them over here!)

Ken Silver
~1993 SL500, glistening triple black, xenons, AMG facelift to 2002 style.
~1999 SLK 230 Kompressor, silver/black leather, CD, immaculate
~1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara. black & silver.
~1991 Jaguar Daimler, shiny grey/grey leather.
~ex 350SL, 230E, 280E, MX5 and a lot of other makes not nearly as nice.

i have a 4.6HSE Range Rover. it's not too bad actually, my only complain is that it's a heavy slow pig. handles pretty good for a car it's size/weight.

i have a 4.6HSE Range Rover...
What year? Any problems?
95 iirc. had to replace one of the suspension bags cos of a leak. the air suspension pump tends to get kinda noisy, but it's an easy fix. interior build quality is, how you say, typically british. the ride is awesome, acceleration isn't.
