The main aspects of this deal seem to be:<p>- Cheaper prices<br>- More spec and equipment in each vehicle<br>- Development of a diesel variant for Spring 05<br>- Release of this revised City Rover in LHD form for the european markets<p>Most important part was the lowering of prices, which makes it a more realistic purchases.. hopefully it acts as a nice money maker / stop gap until there is some money to do something better..
