I was actually pricing out Disco's myself for a while, so here's my 2 cents on that first:
Pre 2004, just don't.
Water pump issues, Headliner issues, the engine is from an old chrysler design in the 60's, guzzles premium, It's junk.
The 2004, same issues, but at least you get a locking diff?
The LR3's are actually pretty decent from my understanding. They have a 300hp Jaguar v8 powerplant, and sound great even with the stock exhaust, pull the intake resonator (air comes direct from the passenger fender, so would probably sound quite proper with no resonator), run your dual exhaust and go climb over some traffic jams. The reliablity issues are still there, you can't throw that many features at a vehicle and not have issues. Air bags, computer controlled braking on all 4 wheels, electronic locking diff's, etc. But it's a far sight better than the Disco II's, even though I prefer the older look more. Issue, gas mileage is still terrible.
Personally, I can't stand a dual exhaust on an automatic transmission though, so in my opinion, being tall, and in need of a dsg or manual..
Old E46 M3 (manual), just watch out for who the previous owner was, many people that can't afford the maintainence buy these and then run them into the ground.
Old CTS-V There were some issues with these (I think the wheel bearings? Can't remember exactly), but though they don't look as good as the new ones, they still sound amazing with a good exhaust, and can pack 2 adults in the back to boot.
Old WRX? No dual exhaust, but pretty reliable if you don't go crazy modding it, and still have a decent amount of power (enough to make an S3 take a breather if you only go Stage 2).
