That's SODs law but then have faith in the man upstairs. Before I bought my current L322 Range Rover. I had known two since they were bought. Single owners and knew both of them. Clean as whistles, always parked in shade and no expense spared to maintain them with all original LR parts .
When I was able to buy one these are the first two cars I approached. One guy said he will never sell it and he has passed it on to his daughter to now and she will not drive anything else and the other guy had a somewhat similar response.
So then I started to look outside. And found what was at the time the cheapest L322 Range River in the UAE ( aka hoovie style )
And exactly two weeks after I bought mine the first guy who was never going to sell it for it touch said he wanted to sell it now!!!!!
I was like WTF anyways not wanting to let a good car and deal escape I made a friend buy it who was after seeing mine wanted one too.
Then two weeks after that the second guy got in touch and said he wanted to sell it now and I was like double WTF!!!!
So once again not wanting to let a good deal and good car go my friends brother in law bought it who also wanted to buy one now after seeing my friends.
So now there are three same year L322 Range Rovers among us.
But to be honest I have spent way way way less on mine then those two have on their two in the three years we have owned them .they have had some major issues with theirs Although compared to them even today mine looks more rattier inside and out.
So as the saying goes. Careful what you wish for or you just might get it.
Fortunately in this case my wishes didn't come true
