Glad you are enjoying it - they are great aren't they :)

For those facing snow in a 4x4 for the first time though, please bear in mind that stopping it is no better than any other car (and may be worse):

I have a DD saloon with road tyres, rear wheel drive and ABS - it is absolutely useless when trying to get going in snow or on ice (I need a run-up to get up the access ramp over the pavement and into my driveway) but will stop better than my off-roader on ice or frozen-compacted snow...

Freelanders are seiously uner-rated aren't they? Ignore the diff lock snobs, I've got a 96 300 TDi disco sat on the rive with fuel delivery problems and my Freelander 1.8 XEi keeps going, driving friends and family everywhere (though not 6 passengers at a time), HDC is excellent, I will be genuinely sad to see it go- I love the disco's flexibility too much to let her go
