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 owned a 2000 4.6 HSE Range Rover Holland & Holland edition, and really enjoyed it, great ride from the air suspension, wonderful Connolly leather interior that smelled as good as it looked, satin oiled walnut trim, but poor acceleration and fuel mileage. I would imagine that the pinnacle of SUVs would be a G-500 or G-55 AMG, especially for us R129 guys, but I haven't driven the G...yet..[?]

The Jaguar analog to a 500SL...I Love my V12

But this one is faster and runs better than the Jag:
