    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I picked up my HSE 6 cyl yesterday morning. Spent almost 2 hours going through the delivery, trying to understand as much as possible about the dual screens. Drove back to the hotel and was then contacted by the dealer that the lighted sill plates had just arrived. I drove back to the dealer...

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    I've had my "Murdered Out" 2015 Range Rover Evoque Dynamic Coupe for about a month and a half now.

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I have had my 2016 RRS HSE TD6 now for six weeks. Several others have posted their initial impressions of this vehicle but since there seems to be continuing interest in the TD6 engine I thought that I would contribute to the discussion. This is my third RRS and fourth Land Rover. I previously...
  6. Initial impressions of Opticoat Pro+ on an L405

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    It has been getting on for 3 months since I had Johnny at Distinctiv Detailing apply a ceramic coat to my MY16. As these coatings appear to be evolving at a rapid rate I decided to go with the newest technology from Opticoat, their Pro+ formulation. So far I have been very impressed with it...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Took delivery this past weekend and am getting used to the vehicle. Here’s a few random thoughts: -Wait was really worth it—this vehicle does not disappoint! Love the driving position and vehicle presence! My wife claims I’m having a pseudo mid-life crisis due to the red on red color scheme...
  10. 2016 HSE Td6 - Owner Impressions

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I picked mine up today and drove about 100 miles. As others have stated, it is very quiet. Inside the vehicle at idle you cannot tell it's a diesel, even if you are a hard core diesel fan like me. Also like others have said there is some turbo lag (not too bad, but it's there) and the power...

  14. 255/55/19 ZEON LTZ's first impressions on 11 RRS.

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    My 11 RRS came with 20" OEM rims with TOYO Proxes STII's. After some sketchy moments in snow last year I finally decided to run an AT on 19's as a winter setup. I would have gone with genuine snow tires except 1) I do a lot of bare highway driving in winter in addition to snow covered highways...
  15. 2014 V6 Supercharged driving impressions

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and not sure where most of you are based. I'm English but live in New York. I had a 2010 RRS V8 which was the US market 5.0 V8 non-supercharged which had about 375 bhp and was fast but had a propensity for premium unleaded. I sold the car a year and a half ago...

  18. It’s here! First impressions!

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Firstly before you read this you need to know the following; 1.) I’m a total Sissy 2.) This car will never see a wet or rough road 3.) I’m more interested in design & features than I am performance That said; I love it! I picked it up today after having the grille trim, hood scoop & skid...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Here's an update, now on Day Four of owning the 08' RR: Hi folks - I joined last year, but mainly watched the P-38 section as I pondered taking next step to the MKIII. I started with a Classic then ran thru several P-38s and my last one now has an engine issue. Don't know how I dodged major...
