Chelsea Tractors. Whats the point?
Which is identical in almost every way to my Freelander
I was referring to the 2wd version, I should have made that clearer.
Fair play to them – the 2wd version is listed as 129g/km but the 4wd one is only 149g/km. Which, if it is indeed a ‘proper’ 4×4 is pretty good. Ironically, if you were in need of a proper 4×4 and had to keep the costs down, it could be a good utility option despite appearing to be an affectation 🙂Posted 5 years ago

Just look at it though… hideously chintzy.Posted 5 years agoslowmartMember
Personally I never thought I’d buy a 4 x 4.
But I had never ridden in one until I was a passenger in a mates Tuareg. Vision, comfort and ride are superb.
I run a Range Rover which is simply the best car I’ve ever owned. It’s not cheap to run, depreciation is awful but I wouldn’t swap it.Posted 5 years agoMrSmithMember
Three pages late, but…
[pedantry mode] “Fiscal” pertains to taxation, it is not a synonym for “financial” [/pedantry mode]
The irony of this schoolboy error is that the owners of “proper” Chelsea tractors (ie those who actually live in Chelsea) have superb fiscal management and priorities, at least from their point of view: paying as little tax as possible…
And I would suggest that “skewed fiscal priorities” alluded to current tax avoidance schemes popular with the chelsea dwellers, but not with the great unwashed who will never be in the higher tax bracket who see it as an example of the wealth gap in the ‘Big Society’.Posted 5 years agoteamhurtmoreMember
Each to his/her own with car choices for me. Personally, I am not a car-person and favour practicality over prestige. When the urge to buy a nice a car appears I simple say 1 car = 3 years school fees. One is “spending” on a rapidly depreciating asset’ the other is “investing” in someone’ s long term future. The urge soon goes away then!!!Posted 5 years ago
