    calling all owners of 2013 NA V8 L405's

    2013 was the only year of the NA V8 in the L405 so I thought I would start a thread for owners to share their experience with it. The 2013 NA V8 is becoming rare and somewhat hard to find. Before I found mine, I was committed to finding a CPO SC V8. However, I ended up test driving a 2013 NA V8 at my local dealer and I was impressed with it. Not only did it have more than enough power, the vehicle seemed to be well cared for and had only a little over 43k miles on it. I sat down with the salesman and told him that I was initially looking for a CPO SC V8 but I would settle for the NA V8 if I could get it for the right price. The salesman asked me what would be the right price...I then offered $45k out the door. He then went and discussed it with his sales manager and returned to me in less than 20 minutes. I was shocked when he held out his hand and said "We have a deal"...I ended up paying $40,800 plus tax, title, license and fees. I think I was out of there in less than an hour. The NA V8 has been great so far and now that our gas prices are starting to rise, it was probably best that I didn't get the SC V8. I have test driven the SC V8 and it's a blast to drive but I'm sure that my driving habits would get me horrible gas mileage.

    This is a list of things that I've done to my 2013 L405 so far...

    1. Tint front windows
    2. 22" Marcellino Wimbley wheels on Pirelli Scorpion Verde tires
    3. Black Exterior Trim Package
    4. Black Range Rover lettering
    5. Stainless foot pedals
    6. Facelift 2018+ style grill
    7. 3D MAXpider Kagu floor liners
    8. Disc Italia Drilled & Slotted Brake rotors with Hyper Ceramic brake pads
    9. New Interstate Battery

    Now after the upgrades/mods, I feel like my 2013 is just as nice as some of the newer model L405's...other than the tech upgrades that the newer models have.

    I was also looking for an SC V8 (RR Sport actually) before "settling" on mine because it was a good deal. I love the NA V8 in this car, but kinda wish I went for the SC because my average fuel economy in the last 4,000 miles is 16.6. This includes a lot of highway driving, but I live downtown.

    I bought black 21" OEM RR SC wheels (powdercoated satin black) and a 16-piece black pack for it the day it arrived. I just need black letters and new headlights (as you know) because I absolutely love the signature DRLs.

    swax, I don't know what the gas prices in Wisconsin are right now but it's currently $4.49 per gallon for premium here in Southern Cali. So far, my NA V8 seems to be getting an average of about 15-16mpg on mostly city driving but I've noticed that fuel economy increases to like 18-20mpg on the highway. With my driving habits, I'm almost sure that if I had the SC V8 then my average would be more like 12-13mpg for mostly city driving.

    Come on guys...I know there has to be more 2013 NA V8 L405 owners on this forum. However, I did a search on Autotrader for the 2013 NA V8 L405 and there seems to be only about 10 available within a 500 mile radius of me. I wonder how many were sold here in the US...
