Re: potential new Buyer

I'm crossing 17k miles and the paint as ugly as it is compared to other luxury brands is holding up and rock chip free. i've named it rhino paint. mechanically the VM Motori motor is noisy at speeds below 35mph, more so than other brands but it is also at least $15k cheaper than the ML or X5. So I deal with it, it's a lease after all.

Re: potential new Buyer

I've had my Overland with the ORII package for a year and a half and it's got 23K miles on it. I did go through numerous CEL episodes until they finally replaced the catalytic converter. Since then I have had no issues. My only other annoyances have been the poorly designed placement of the DEF injector (fixed with one of Dom's plates) and the stock tires, which are absolutely worthless for any kind of off road use. Ended up replacing those with Goodyear Duratracs. I often tow a small off road trailer that weighs just over 3K lbs and you hardly even know it's there. I get about 20 miles/gal city, 20 towing on long trips, and 28 hwy without the trailer. I really like the adjustable air suspension and I think the diesel sounds cool. Much nicer than my friend's wimpy sounding VW Touareg TDI. I have no regrets and I plan to buy another one in the future.
