  1. Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I have been driving for over 50 years and am pretty experienced. I have driven many times in ice and snow. In the past 2 of years, there were 3 occasions when I was driving my RRS in snow slowly on a traveled road in the snow setting. Going down a slight decent, when it came time to brake...

    Ok the cold temperatures have been doing a number on my air ride. In my heated garage the suspension works normal, will raise lower, maintain height. No leaks. I get going down the road and my suspension will drop. I found that the front strut will be bleeding off air. I shut it off and restart...

    Hey Guys, Just about to pick up my first RR Sport this weekend. As a long time BMW owner, this form has been a wealth of knowledge. My question is, with all the posts regarding problems with the new infotainment system/electronics is anyone not having issues? Also should I request the dealer to...

    Hi, I am new to Range Rovers. WE LOVE our 2006 RRS SC (I hope that is the short cut name). One problem we are encountering. We live in Michigan, on dirt road---and have noticed that the wheels on this vehicle seem to have high propensity to accumulate ice/snow/mud---making an out of balance...

    Looks like I’ve killed my 98 4.6. Was up in North Yorkshire (uk) yesterday and coming down a short hill hit snow on top of ice. A 4 wheel lock up turned her into a 2.4 ton sledge bounced off a grass bank went over it and smacked straight into a tree. A few strops and another car we reversed out...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I want to fit a large screen in place of the radio in my 2000 P38. I'd like it to be able to do the job of the radio/CD, sat nag, reversing camera and phone blue tooth. I've seen a couple advertised on ebay from china too cheaply. Has anyone any experience of a unit like this? Cheers Ian

    hi all. I have my Classic back on the road and our Au Pair will start driving it this week. Primarily, for the next year, the LWB will be used to ferry my kids to and from school, with some mountain pass snow driving thrown in for good measure. The car has a 2" Terrafirma lift and i'm looking...
  11. Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    So I ordered my 2015 on Sept. 1, 2014; got notice from the dealer 1 month ago that it had landed on the docks in Nova Scotia, Canada.

    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...
