  1. Design improvement suggestions

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    After a couple months of ownership, I've noticed some design elements that could be better. 1. The rear seats, when folded down, press into the tracks for the front seats, leaving impressions in the rear seat leather. I'm afraid to keep the rear seats folded down for very long, for fear of...
  2. first oil change

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Is it a good idea to change the oil after the first 2,000 miles or so? I'm thinking there may be extra bits of shaved metal, etc, from the break-in. Or is that extra early first oil change unnecessary?
  3. Breaking in a new RRS

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Yes break in it, but after you do, then drive over a distance, let the engine warm up, and run it hot with varying high revs so that it bores in properly.
  4. What changes for 2007 RRS

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Definitely agree re the digital readouts and gauges on the driver's side dash. Very hard to see in daylight. Can't see anything with sunglasses.
  5. What changes for 2007 RRS

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Small things, but I really would like to see these things changed: The sunvisor, especially on the driver's side, needs to have a "pull out" extension. The sun was setting through the driver's side window yesterday, and the sunvisor length is inadequate. The hooks for coat hangers (located at...
  6. HSE vs. Supercharged - Decision Guide

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    What is the difference in gas mileage between the HSE and SC? What about the relative costs of maintenance and repair of the higher-performing engine? The higher "cost" of owning the SC doesn't stop with the purchase price. Also, in that same vein, which vehicle will depreciate faster? Will...
  7. passenger side carpet sopping wet

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Taking the RRS HSE back to the dealership tomorrow. The carpet on the front passenger (right) side is soaked! It's definitely water -- not oily; no smell. There is nothing dripping from under the glove box. My only guess: condensation from the air conditioner not draining properly? Has...
  8. Dynamic response possible as after-manufacture dealer-added?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Any technically savvy folks out there know whether the Dynamic Response suspension is something that can be added at the dealership? I'm about to buy the RRS HSE without the Dynamic Response -- because it does not appear to be available as an option on the HSE any time soon. If I might want to...
  9. SC vs. HSE

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Can you presently get the Dynamic Response/Brembo Brakes option on an HSE? It is described in the brochure as an option with "delayed availability." I was told by three different dealers (OC, San Diego and Denver) that LR has no code as yet to order the DR/BB option on an HSE, which likely...
  10. Cockpit feel cramped?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I'm not that tall - 5'11" - but the leg room in the RRS seems tight. The center console is too wide and too high. Unless I put the driver's seat all the way back, one knee rests against the door and the other rests against the console. Does anyone else think that the cockpit is too confined?
  11. mileage update?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Don't own the Sport yet. How is the break-in period described in the owner's manual? I would trust that only -- and ignore what any dealers might say.
  12. mileage update?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    With more owners having had the opportunity to break in (run in) their Sports, I thought it may be a good time again to solicit real world MPG for the SC, HSE and diesel engines. What are your actual experiences regarding mileage? (Please specify US or Imperial gallons.)
  13. HSE options?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    The RR Sport brochure given to me by the local dealership in May describes a "Dynamic Response" package -- which includes the Dynamic Response suspension and Brembo brakes -- as standard equipment on the SC and as an option only on the HSE. Moreover, the HSE option has an asterisk that says...
  14. HSE options?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    The Dynamic Response stability control system and Brembo brakes are standard on the SC model. Are these features available as options on the HSE in the US?
  15. Any ideas for personalized license plates?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    In California you can order personalized license plates -- up to seven characters, at this site: https://vrir.dmv.ca.gov/ipp/PerLicensePlateServlet Does anyone have any suggestions for the Range Rover Sport? If you are so inclined, you can use the above website to see what already has been...
  16. V8 vs SC?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Trying to decide between the basic V8 and the Supercharged engines. Will not be towing or hauling heavy loads. Will not be driving off road much (at least not intentionally). Given the weight, does the normally aspirated V8 feel underpowered? I am concerned about fuel consumption. Does...
