Basic information about my car:
2011 Range Rover Sport 5.0 V8 Supercharged Autobiography
Reasons why I bought this car(purpose)
I always like Range Rover, especially the sporty models like Range Rover Sport which look masculine, manly yet elegant with the touch of British royal looks and feel.
I particularly like this model because it has all the quality and value of Range Rover although its design tends to be more squarish than the recent model. This model is rare and exclusive, and the best before it ends its production line for L320 (MK1). 'Autobiography' signifies the most prestige and finest quality for the models' line up. It is on top of 5.0 V8.
Car selection process
● I had a budget of: 400,000 to 600,000
● Models that I have considered include: Porsche Cayenne, Range Rover Vogue
Reasons why I chose this car
As mentioned, this model is hard to come by. It was imported by a local car dealer from a UK exclusive cars importer Roman Cars UK in 2015. As a friend to this car dealer he contacted me for viewing. I immediately placed my booking and it was with much excitement. I always like exclusive models as a car enthusiast myself.
I have done: 110,000 km
This car is a headturner. Get lots of attention on the roads.
With the 22' sport rims, autobiography body kit, unique colour combination with silver roof line. The 2 colours tone interior makes it even more exclusive to look at. It bring me joy and lots of satisfaction driving it as my daily car. The car is solid, and it comes with off-road capabilities but never dare to try it off-road as the spare parts for wear and tear are very costly. I will describe it as a Love & Hate relationship for owning a Range Rover. You must prepare some spare cash for fixing or repair anytime. For example, the lower arms itself can cost you easily for RM 7,000 for a pair, 1 Bosch Injector would cost.
Pros and Cons
Pros of my car

My prestigious horse which comes with status, power and elegance.
Tailed by Porsche Cayman, Porsche 911 Carrera and A-class AMG in separate events where I put them to shame when I revved and sped away. This car always stays under radar and most speedy drivers are not aware of its capability and power. And I really enjoyed this kind of event. Truly an experience.
