LR care very much about people with Classic LR's, so much so that they have opened a whole classic parts division which makes sure all parts are available for the classics and now do restoration services to keep them on the road, they look at it from both ends.Why should JLR care about anything *but* what is purchased new? That's who's paying them, not those who pick them up used.
I see this argument frequently with regards to manual transmission options for other vehicles. Sure you want one, but in 5 years. But if nobody buys one new, they won't exist. As you said, most people only care about the BT system and the payment. The days of being able to buy a supremely capable 4x4 for pennies (I own an LR3 HD which cost the same an '06 Civic or Corolla) are numbered... I'm glad I'm in my 30s and will be able to swing a new vehicle in 5 years or so.
