  2. Long Term Parking - Does Selected Height Matter?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    When parking for 10+ days is there a recommended height to set? Struts are fresh and not leaking. Just wondering. Figured access was the way to go but thought I'd poll the forum. Thanks!
  3. How long until faults are cleared after recharging battery?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi there- got a few faults on my 2004 HSE (ABS, Brake, Inactive Air Suspension) because of a dead battery (battery health is fine, car was just sitting too long). Just recharged the battery and the car starts and runs fine now but these faults remain even after a couple restarts of the car...

    New Member Introductions
    Hello all, I live in New Zealand - in the dry, remote mountainous area called Central Otago. I have a 1996 DSE 2.5 L which I've had for at least 10 years. It's done about 320,000 km and still runs very well - the motor, gearbox and body, that is. But not the EAS, or the elusive fuse 8 the...
  5. How long does it take for an oil change?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Took my RRS car to to an Independent LR dealership for the 90K service, which isn't much, just an oil change, cabin filter (something I can actually do myself lol) and just some random checks (like wipers, etc). The dealer is Eurofix...has a ton of reviews. The guy seemed knowledgeable and...
  6. Long Distance P38 purchase question

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hurricane Michael dropped a tree on our low mileage 1999 Lexus SUV. I have been absent from this forum for years after "losing" our P38. My wife has always wanted to return to this model (the only thing great about the Lexus was the reliability) and so I tried to purchase an incredible looking...
  7. Range Rover reliability and long term maintenance?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi everyone, I am new/recent to RR world, leased my first RR about 2 years ago. I wonder how in general RRs do when it comes to reliability and long term maintenance. Some say "you should never own a RR", is that a true statement?... to me without a backing evidence it sounds like saying...

  13. Regret getting long wheelbase?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Does anyone regret getting the long wheel base? I am thinking of going long wheelbase only to have more room to take the kids in and out, but not sure if I will regret having a long car. Local dealer doesn't have a long wheelbase to see, would be nice to see one before ordering it, but any...
  14. How long are CEL and SES codes "stored"

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Asking out of curiosity, say you find a p38 you want to buy, looks great ect ect. What you don't know is that the seller cleared the codes and after 50 miles of driving you dash turns into a Christmas tree. If you had an inspection done at a LR dealer could they plug in their testing tool and...
  15. 1995 3.9 to 4.6 long block conversion, crank spacer?

    Range Rover Classic
    Does anybody know if the late 3.9 motor with the serpentine accessory belt and crank-driven oil pump still needs a spacer to use the 3.9 pulley on the 4.6 crank? I know the earlier v-belt equipped 3.9s have the shorter crank 'snout' necessitating the use of the spacer, but I'm sure I've read...

  18. How long do you tires last ?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I have a 2006 RRS S/C and NITTO NT421 275/45R20 tires. I'm on my 6th pair and they never seam to last more than 20,000 miles despite having a 60,000 mile warranty. Does anyone else have this problem ? Admittedly i don't rotate them that often. Also the warranty at discount tire is useless ...

  20. SVR owners: Long term thoughts

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Dear all, I am set on buying a new RR Sport SVR (blue Estoril with tan/ebony seats). However, there is just one thing that is making me hesitant about it. Although I love the exhaust sound (and is one of the main reasons for buying it over the ATB), I am a bit concerned about whether it would...
