    General Chatter
    Another fun outing in the dunes with the club :)
  2. It’s been fun. But now have to say farewell to my Velar FE

    Range Rover Velar / L560
    It’s been mostly a good vehicle but the frequent dealer service visits to address hvac, infotainment, and basic quality control/build issues kinda soured my first-time Land Rover product ownership experience. Perhaps I will return and give the brand another chance one day. We’ll see...
  3. And the fun just never stops!

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Well, seeing as we are on the West Coast for the near future, I bought a very nice low mileage Ford Windstar as the "Dog Van" to do shore based excursions (Still on the old lifeboat) This was fine until we got on the LA Freeways.........In the 30 years I have been away, they have gone stark...
  4. Must Have Fun to Have Add-ons?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    As I close-in on taking delivery of a '15 Supercharged V8, I thought I'd ask if there are any small or large, I guess, things you think are great to have. From the perfect floor mats to fuzzy dice...or not (I have to draw the line somewhere). This Rangey has every option package except adaptive...
  5. New to P38, drama, fun, drama, fun

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Ok, not tech savvy and screwed up my first post! I have always fancied a P38 Range Rover but was always put off by their reputation, but not beiong afraid of getting spanner rash I decided to get one. I sold a motorbike I had in storage for 27 years and went out and purchased a 1997 4.6HSE...
  6. Kickdown Fun

    Range Rover Classic
    Hey guys, I've been having a lot of trouble with my 1990 refusing to kickdown while attempting to climb hills. All shifting seems normal while driving downhill or on flat ground. However, as soon as I attempt a hill, the rover refuses to kickdown unless I do it manually. I realize that this...
  7. The fun never ends...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    You all were so very kind to help a few months ago when my BECM was on the fritz. AFter sending it to Martin to get it sorted (many thanks to him and those that referred him) - the mechanic said the vehicle is still overheating and he believes the cylinder head may be cracked - or in need of a...
  8. Fun evening, Nanocom

    Diagnostic Equipment
    So I got my Nanocom today, and this evening calibrated the motors on the HEVAC system, reset the TPS to 0.6 volts at idle, set the idle air to 22 steps when warm at idle, reset the adaptives, and wow, such a delight to drive now. Now I can fix all the gremlins that have been bugging me...

  10. Fun with Gaskets

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I have not yet had one of those days restoring My 2002 RR so I was due. I Installed new valve cover gaskets yesterday , put back on the air intake and a few other parts and called it a day. Had an epiphany last night thinking about the small metal inserts , located in the gaskets that the...
  11. Fun in the sand

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I had seen a question about how well the RR would work on the beach so, I figured I would do some research while I was on vacation. I am happy to report that it works very well. I deflated my tires to 22psi, from my normal 35, and used the Sand setting on the Terrain Response system...
  12. L405 Having Fun in Snow and Ice

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    We got 10" of snow yesterday and I thought I would post a video of the roads I drive on my daily commute. The roads are dirt and there are some decent hills. The video doesn't show how steep they are very well, but the RR handles them fine. Unfortunately, I did not have my camera when I drove...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    The Rover did great. This clip was at the Turtle ridge off-road park.
  16. Open Air Range Rover, why let Jeeps have all the fun?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I decided to take the doors off of my 2005 Range Rover for a day. There's just 6 bolts on each door and one connector to the wiring. Took about 30-45 minutes to do with another person helping. I bought a $10 mirror and it fit into one of the hinge holes. I took it down to South Beach and a few...

  19. had 9 classics in the past, first P38, let the fun begin

    New Member Introductions
    Hey, hello from Milton Keynes, little place north of London, just got my first P38, no major issues to report thus far, several small ones, hopefully. All I've done thus far is remove the light grills and the side steps, like to keep things simple asthetically, looking at swapping out the 19's...
  20. Fun with A/C

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    So we have been running our AC a lot. Hot and humid in NC during the summer. Now on start up the AC blasts air that for about 3 seconds smells like dirty laundry. It's very noticeable and not normal. I am assuming some water may not be draining out of condenser or something is going on in...
