  1. Winter Weather Driving

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    In a northern state where you can pretty much guarantee snow/ice for quite a few months I'd place real winter tyres on the car; makes a huge difference. Bish
  2. Software Update Wish List

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Just picked up my wife's new Summit Ecodiesel last week and agree with what you've mentioned re: the entertainment system. Truly fantastic given the price of the car. BTW, the engine in this car is superb and makes me continue to shake my head as to why LRUSA have yet to bring over a TDV8...
  3. third row seats

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Drove the 2014 MDX and felt it to be pretty gutless due to lack of torque when on the move and the front seats have no support it seems to my wife and myself. Would be painful on a long trip as it was with our previous models. We ended up getting my wife a Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit with the new...
  4. Great review on PistonHead of the SDV8

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    LRUSA's refusal to certify the TDV8 these last few years have cost them countless sales IMHO. If the FFRR and RRS had the TDV8 as an option, LRUSA would own the NA high end SUV market. I would place an order immediately for a loaded RRS TDV8 Autobiography; I simply don't understand the economics...
  5. Autobahn – FT Worth, Texas

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    This so called service manager needs to be fired. I would complain to the General Manager and Owner and never take my vehicle back there again. Further if it's in the shop for 30 days still waiting on the instrument cluster to arrive, lemon law the **** thing. Bish
  6. First review of Range Rover Sport 2014

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Autotrader and other sites like them use incoming VINs when stating how many cars are available for sale, however most of those cars are pre-sold orders. Hence the number of cars shown for sale is hugely inflated. My local LR dealership sells loads of Rovers and they only have a demo RRS...
  7. v6 vs. v8 ?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    The diesel 350 is a much better vehicle than the 350 gas engine powered ML. Far greater torque along with about a 600 mile range. The ML diesel is quiet and very refined. You can expect at least 20 mpg in the city, and at least high 20's on the highway. With the right options it can be made to...
  8. Adaptive option

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Wife's '08 MB GL has the cornering lights. They're very useful. Wonder if the new GL's have them? Bish
  9. My first sighting of an RRS in the wild

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Many vehicles will turn off the DRL on the side when the turn indicator is flashing; this is SOP.
  10. Side trim look unfinished without Atlas vents?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    IMHO that silver trim just looks like an after-thought. Totally out of place. Not the vents, just the contrasting trim line. Bish
  11. Reliability of new models/ extended warranty

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    For some older perspective: I owned a 2003 FFRR HSE. The car was bulletproof over the three years we owned it. Never left us stranded. Just routine maintenance and the (very) occasional minor item that was typically taken care of during the maintenance. We traded it for a 2006 RRS S/C which we...
  12. Lease Questions

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Can you find a local leasing company that will buy the RRS from the LR dealership and then turn around and lease the car to you? That way the cap cost remains the same, (msrp), along with the residual but you can get a much lower money factor. Frankly >10% today is usury!! Good luck Bish
  13. '13 RRS Vs '14 RRS Vs '13 LR

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Your negativity towards the 2014 RRS is astounding given that you've never driven one, and from your posts haven't even sat in one. From many reviews it seems that the new RRS is a far better vehicle on road where most of these vehicles only see duty, AND is even more capable off road. I agree...
  14. Hybrid FFRR and RRS

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    For the life of me I don't know what is wrong with LRUSA. They should demand from LR UK that a US version of the TDV8 be available in the FFRR; RRS and the LR4. If they did that they will get my business back immediately and probably would be able to sell twice as many vehicles. The Hybrid idea...
  15. '13 RRS Vs '14 RRS Vs '13 LR

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    And yet LR themselves state that the 2014 RRS is even more capable off road than the out going model. Hence better performance on and off road; faster; more economical, etc. What's not to like? Bish
  16. First review of Range Rover Sport 2014

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Even with the price increase I think you'll see that the RRS Type II will far outsell its predecessor.
  17. Autocratic review

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    www.autocar.co.uk A great review of the TDV6; ( for God's sake LRUSA bring that engine or the TDV8 to the USA and leave the overly complicated and far heavier hybrid in the lab where it belongs!). Bish
  18. First review of Range Rover Sport 2014

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    You're wrong. (Lord) Harry Metcalf is the founder and ex editor of EVO magazine. Without a doubt one of the best car magazines in the world. He is highly respected, and his opinion carries a lot of weight to someone who loves high performance vehicles. IMHO the car looks fantastic and I love his...
  19. Any one heard whether there will be a diesel option in the USA?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Re: Any one heard whether there will be a diesel option in the USA? Audi has a great diesel in the Q7 and is about to unleash the same engine in a bunch more cars. Both MB and BMW as well as VW and now Porsche have a great diesel option available which all sells well. If LRNA are planning on...
  20. Any one heard whether there will be a diesel option in the USA?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Any one heard whether there will be a diesel option in the USA? So I sent an email to LRNA asking whether the new RR was going to get the TDV8 option for the US. Of course the answer was that there was no thought of supply a modern diesel to customers here. This is just ridiculous. The TDV8 is...
