Fudge, depends where you it.

GTO, what. Are you thinking of the LR, Jag 2.2lt engine by chance?

not sure that too many notice the changes at all. I see the V6 challenging any sales records the V8 doesn’t really cut it against the so why would anyone bother?

about any weight reduction, I the next Discovery was to be based on the Rover Sport and hence a similar drop in weight, that alone would out my purchase.
