  1. 2018 V8 Hesitation on Acceleration?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Both my current 2016 L405 AB and previous Sport L320 Series 2(both 5.0 S/C) seem to rev in neutral for a second or so before lurching into gear, my supposition being that it’s set by default to start in 2nd and then drops down into 1st when it senses a more enthusiastic throttle opening. Less...
  2. FFRR and F-Type: how can they sound so wildly different?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    This is indeed partially true in some instances, BMW are known to pump sound into the cockpit, however I'm referring here to the true sound outside the vehicle.
  3. FFRR and F-Type: how can they sound so wildly different?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Indeed, I added such an exhaust switch to a Maserati Convertible, which to my mind has one of the most spine tingling exhaust notes there are (better IMO than the Ferrari 430 with which it shares an engine). Sadly my neighbours don't agree, hence the addition. Best mod ever actually, it's a...
  4. FFRR and F-Type: how can they sound so wildly different?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Can someone help me understand the physics of how JLR produces such a huge range of exhaust sounds from the same engine? I apologize in advance to those who quite understandably feel that these vehicles should remain serene and wafty; I personally feel that the environment in which it is...
  5. How to permanently disable Intelligent Stop/Start

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    At least the restart on the Rover is reasonably quiet. I was alongside a Lambo the other day in city traffic and every time he crept forward a few inches BWOOOAR!!!!!! Poor guy.
  6. Aftermarket Exhaust Recommendations

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    In my experience getting a satisfying exhaust note out of this car is problematic. Some of my "story" is in this thread: http://www.rangerovers.net/forum/24-range-rover-mark-iv-l405/287434-stainless-sports-performance-exhausts-khan-overfinch-etc.html#post1986570
  7. front camera to turn on when in drive?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Re: How to get front cam to turn on when put the truck in dr I wouldn't want it to turn on automatically, but what I don't understand is why the front camera apparently disappears from the menu below a certain speed. I'll do some experimentation and see what the threshold is, but it's...
  8. front camera to turn on when in drive?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Re: How to get front cam to turn on when put the truck in dr Could have used it yesterday when parking in a tight spot - buggered if I could find it. Curb view, rear junction view, helicopter view, just not the one that is of any use. So odd, presumably there's a reason why they programmed...
  9. front camera to turn on when in drive?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Re: How to get front cam to turn on when put the truck in dr The front camera is bizarre. It's easily available when driving at speed (i.e. when it's utterly pointless) but almost impossible to find at parking/maneouvering speeds (i.e. when it would actually be really useful). When I say...
  10. Stainless Sports / Performance Exhausts: Khan, Overfinch etc

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    This may sound odd, but personally I think the Rover is one of those vehicles for which the colour makes a huge difference to its character. Black ones have certain brooding presence that to my mind suit an exhaust note with certain ominous hint of menace. And yours is black….
  11. Stainless Sports / Performance Exhausts: Khan, Overfinch etc

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Best place to start is simply to remove some bits and replace with straight pipes, should cost you no more than few hundred pounds and is easily reversible. After my sorry tale above I think the key is the cats. I put sport cats on a DB9 and a Maserati GT and the difference was massive – I...
  12. Stainless Sports / Performance Exhausts: Khan, Overfinch etc

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Hmm, I wouldn’t get too excited about finding “the V8 soundtrack” of these vehicles. I have the V8 Autobiography and it’s whisper quiet despite my best and expensive efforts otherwise. Previously I had a both a Series 1 and Series 2 RRSport Supercharged, and simply removing the resonators...
  13. Lurchy take-off from rest.

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Had this with my 2010 Sport S/C too; not so bad with the FFRR but it’s still there. Only in Sport mode, doesn’t happen in D. With a reasonably enthusiastic application of the throttle off the line, and particularly noticeable when cold, it feels like the car starts off in 2nd and then...
  14. Perpendicular park option finally tried

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    A previous thread on this had too many comments like "it's great when it works...". Now apparently it isn't even then. So:
  15. Who can talk Tech on the SV exhaust?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I do still wonder if this is a Market-specific thing? Your European Rover ATB now sounds like the European Rover SV in the clip. My US Rover ATB still sounded like a fart in a vacuum even with the exhaust completely removed from the Cats back, and the part numbers for the rear boxes are the...
  16. Who can talk Tech on the SV exhaust?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Great news! I'm really surprised. I have the rear boxes and tips from the magnaflow system; they are much smaller and they really didn't make much difference. At one point my exhaust guy took the entire exhaust OFF at the cats, and it was still quiet! The SV boxes must have some magical...
  17. New members READ THIS

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Ironic really that I almost started a new thread once on the topic of "why does it take so long for new posts to show up?". I later (accidentally) found it had been assigned to another forum.

  20. Definition of Wading Depth

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I’m sure I remember reading a couple of years ago, most likely in Top Gear or EVO, possibly one of the US magazines purchased in desperation at an airport. that the Land Rover definition of wading depth was as follows: 1) Drive into the prescribed/claimed depth of water. 2) Switch...
