I just purchased a pretty clean 2004 Range Rover HSE. I'll have some pictures up tonight once I get it in my driveway. It has 158,000 miles, a clean title, and it's only had 2 owners, with the first one owning it for almost 12 years. It's a southern truck, originating in Georgia, moving to Tennessee, and then moving to Arizona, all with the original owner. There's absolutely no rust under the car, and the paint appears to be in pretty good shape since this truck has been garaged its whole life. The only signs of sun damage are on the door handles, but that should be an easy fix. The Carfax/Autocheck looks clean too, with no discrepancies or reported accidents. It's silver on the outside (Zambezi Silver according to under the hood) and black/gray inside with the brown wood accents. Pretty much the classic L322 color scheme (in my opinion). The truck is 100% original, with the OEM 7-spoke wheels and matching spare. It's so hard to find an unmolested one that doesn't have chrome and 24" rims, so this was a real gem.
This Range Rover is supposedly a "Hennessy" edition, however I think that might be just a sticker that was slapped on, since the engine looks bone stock and the interior looks like any other black/gray L322 interior. It has the OEM towing package, rear DVD screens, heated seats front and back, and all sorts of other fun stuff. The driver's seat is a little worn, but that's nothing I can't fix with some leather dye.
Now for the bad parts— the engine dies shortly after being started. The previous owner suspected it was a fuel supply issue, and after some investigation that does seem to be the case. I did a fuel pressure test using the Schrader valve on the fuel rail, and it barely reached 20 psi at its peak, with the fuel pressure dropping off pretty quickly and hovering in the 10psi range which caused the engine to start dying. Seems like a classic fuel pump issue to me. I ordered a new fuel pump and a new fuel filter from AutohausAZ (they're local to me), so once I pick those up I should be up and running. There are a ton of oil leaks as well, but that's nothing that can't be fixed with some fresh gaskets. I got this truck for a screamin' deal because of these issues, so I don't mind them one bit
I specifically chose a BMW era Rangie because I'm basically a wizard with the M62tu engines, having rebuilt 4 of them in the past two years. My other two cars are BMW 540i's, which have the exact same engine and transmission as this truck. I have tons of parts for this engine and I have all of the special tools it requires. I love that I can buy cheap BMW parts and throw em in, versus buying expensive Land Rover parts.
I look forward to contributing here and helping y'all out with your BMW Range Rovers I'm a DIY-til-I-die kind of guy, so everything I do to this Range Rover will have lots of pictures and explanations attached, and maybe even some videos.
