  1. Longevity of BMW 4.4L Ignition Coils

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have a U.S. 2004 L322 with the BMW M62 mill, 112,000 miles. I use it pretty much exclusively for towing a camping trailer to remote mountain and desert locales, and therefore have tried to preventively replace some underhood items that were likely due for failure anyway, including the water...
  2. RRS SVR will be faced with stiffer BMW Competition!

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    BMW officially announcing new 2020 X5 M Competition model soon and shipping this Fall with about 625 hp. Again we have heard nothing yet about the 2020 SVR features let alone if there will even be one. Very disappointing.
  3. Timing question for L322 2004

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi guys, I currently own a 2004 L322 and I absolutely love it. Its a beast of a car and so far I have used it for almost anything you can think of. Recently I decided to change the timing guides. It involves taking apart a large portion of the engine components and I decided to also change the...
  4. BMW Engine VS Jaguar

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    After owning a dozen Classics and P38's I am now looking at 3rd Gen Rovers and wondering which version was more reliable, the 2003,2004,2005 with the BMW drive train or the later Jaguar versions? I worked for BMW as technician for many years up to 1990 so I have respect for their engineering but...
  5. 2005 L322 M62 BMW engine Camchain guides and chain.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Found out the hard way that if you hear a banging noise from the Cam timing chain, is to open the engine and replace all 3 guides. Allso do the right thing and replace the mainchain and the mainchain tentioner. I only did 215000KM's in mine. The other chains and tentioners seems to be OK.It seem...
  6. Mods to fit bmw fsr

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I’m thinking of enlarging the hole the fsr fit into. The heat sink is bigger and the fins twice as much. It looks like a longer lasting design. Anybody done the same successfully?
  7. Sourcing starter motor from BMW for TD6?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    My starter motor solenoid is dead, and apparently is not available to purchase separate from the rest of the starer. Can anyone confirm whether starter motors from BMWs with the same M57 engine (i.e. 730, 530, X5, X3, etc.) will work on the TD6 L322? Beemers are a lot more plentiful on...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi folks, I have a P38 with the BMW M51 lump. I bought it with an overheat issue which (long story short) turnned out to be no less than 3 cracks in the head. Bought a recon head off the ebay, fitted it and annoyingly it is chuffing fumes passed injector 5. I had anealed the seals, so...

    Diagnostic Equipment
    Greetings fellow Rover enthusiasts, long time/first time here. I've been looking for a mint low-mileage L322 from the BMW era for a while now and nearly pulled a trigger a few times, but faith always intervened. This time, however, I am fairly confident I'm getting one, having given a deposit on...
  10. Engine swap 2003 BMW M62 4.4

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I had a shop that specializes in Land Rovers look at my RR 4.4 2003 that wont start. They concluded it was getting spark, and fuel at the cylinder, however, the cylinder wall is very scored that it cant build compression. (They scoped it and the pictures showed that). I am left with doing an...

  12. BMW L322 vs LR3

    General Chatter
    I have owned my 2005 BMW L322 for 6 years. It was great at first but what turns me off the most are the little things that break. Door handle cables, transfer case neutral issue, sunroof random issue, speakers random issue, windows random issues when the trunk wants, CAN bus faults for EAS and...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi All- After about 20 years of BMW ownership (over 4 different cars), I might be ready for something new. I've never really been interested in SUVs, but the current RRS has caught my eye since it's introduction. My wife's interest in getting a Range Rover ,plus the recent addition of kids, is...

  15. P38 BMW DSE glowplug light not coming on and charging

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi, My dad's old P38 sits standing since he passed, and when i go home to see mum once a year, I charge the battery, start it all up, take it for a run up and down our short private road a few times to free brakes and scrub disks etc., and then check everything is working and clean and detail...
  16. BMW guy to Land Rover RR Sport - Expectations? Warranty?

    Greetings to all..am a Land Rover newbie and am in the process of purchasing my 1st one. Found a 2014.5 Range Rover Sport SC v8 with approx 38k on the odometer and nicely equipped (i think the only thing it lacks is the dynamic package and contrasting black roof - which I'd have opted for) and...
  17. License plate light assembly same as BMW?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hey, Have been meaning to ask this for a while. The light assemblies for the license plate look like they are likely the same part used for BMWs either the E46 3 series or the e60 5 series if I'm not mistaken. Does anyone know? I have an 01 3 series at home I'm going to pop both assemblies...
  18. Help find source of noise/whine L322 2003 BMW 4.4 Video

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Have a noise that sounds like a loud power steering pump, or a supercharger. The sound feels like its behind the drivers (left) side valve cover, at the front of the motor. Pressing a pry bar against my ear and touching the block I can really hear it, but don't hear the noise touching the...
  19. Exhaust Manifold to exhaust pipe leak on bmw range

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    For a while I have heard an unusual sound emanating from front passenger side front wheel well. Tonite I confirmed the seal between exh pipe and manifold is puffing air. Got an engine light the other day so probably is why. My question is to anyone who has done this repair. Will the parts...
  20. BMW X5 wheels on my p38

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Just wanted to follow up with everyone as some of you tried to help out the last time when I was inquiring about having this done. I was successfully able to put the X5 e53 4.6iS rims/tire combo on my P38. I required the following; -rims (20x9, 20x11) -tires (275/40/20- 315/35/20) despite...
