  1. Alternator Alternatives

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    1996 4.6 HSE owned since 2005. Annual mileage is low (under 2000 miles), generally used every other weekend for short journeys (under 10 miles). As a result,batteries take quite a pounding (I'm on my 4th or 5th), and now original alternator has given up. I see I can replace it with a 120amp or...
  2. Any infotainment alternatives?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi guys, I'm wondering if anyone has installed any infotainment alternatives like smartphone mirroring from Naviks. I had ordered a Satechi bluetooth home button that took forever to arrive only to find out that iOS10 broke their connection and the button no longer works (supposedly they're...
  3. Power Steering Fluid Alternatives

    Range Rover Classic
    I'm about due for a flush, but I just realized my '95 RRC OM specs Dexron II Type D ATF for power steering fluid. However, Dexron II and III are NLA now, as I understand the licenses have expired (I do still see DexIII for sale at various auto parts shops). DEX VI is backwards compatible, so...
  4. Battery Alternatives

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Long story short, I live in one of, if not the only place in America that does not have access to Sears ship-to-store. Therefore I cannot get a DieHard Advanced Gold AGM Size 49 battery without driving about 4 hours (which I dont want to do with the presumably battery-caused suspension faults)...
  5. PAS Pipe- alternatives?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Whilst scooting around under the new toy yesterday doing oil changes and admiring the various oil leaks, spotted that at least one of the "pressure" side pipes on the power steering is on its last legs and is spongy and damp where the flexi meets the steel pipe. Hunted down the part number after...
  6. Brake caliper for aesthetic purposes only? Brembo alternatives?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Brake caliper for aesthetic purposes only? Brembo alternatives? Bought some Vossen wheels that show off the brakes, looking for some red Brake calipers. Have an RRS HSE (so no brembo on mines). So far, I've found: (1) Cheap China plastic fake Brembo covers. About $10 from China. But...
  7. Replacement EAS NRVs? Possible alternatives?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    It looks like a lot of my EAS problems are because the NRVs are utterly shot. Even holding them in place and blowing air through the block it's impossible to get them to seal, so when they're just pushed in by that wee spring they must be wide open. I can't find any source of replacement NRVs...
  8. P38 lock/latch alternatives ?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    eAs some will already know the lock/latch from MGFs (MY '95-'01) are very similar to those on our rigs. Anyone here used one of these - successfully - as a direct replacement ? (Note that e-bay is full of MGF lock 'genuine'/clones at various prices, too; Seem to be different specs. for...
  9. EAS Buddy or Alternatives for $250

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So, now that I'm putting my rig back on EAS (Yay!) I figure I need a EAS Buddy or something like it. I was going to order the EAS Buddy V3, but I figured I'd check and see if there were any other better options for my budget of $250. Figured I'd get it in case my system has some faults when I...
  10. P38 HEVAC ECU alternatives

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi all, Sorry if this has been asked and answered- I did go looking for the answers but not all the way as there's over 800 pages to read! Has anybody ever tried replacing one of their "automatic" HEVAC ECU with the "manual" one or vice versa? I'm thinking of replacing my failing automatic...
