  1. Longer shocks & airbags

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi everyone, After seeing how a D5 goes higher when off-road compared to the RRS, how difficult would it be to do the following: 1. replace the airbags with longer ones 2. replace the shocks with longer travel ones or is this a stupid idea?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Well after another two weeks in the shop I finally have my sport back. So far everything is working however my text messages no longer pop up on the screen as they used to.

  4. 2018 Text Messages No Longer Showing

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I have had all kinds of issues with my cameras, so was in for the latest update a week ago. Since that update I have all kinds of new issues, but one is that when a text message comes in it no longer comes up on the screen. Does anyone know any tips or something that might have changed? Other...
  5. L494 Taillamp Red LED Ring no longer illuminated

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    The LED red ring has portions that are no longer working. Drivers (LEFT) side of the picture here. What's the fix? New taillamp assembly ? Under warranty so no biggie but I also didn't see a way to replace bulbs for this ring, is this correct ?
  6. Another someone in need of longer bumpstops

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    After a successful installation of the new Arnott's, I have decided to upsize my tires to some 32's via recalibration. Kuhmo AT51's seem appealing as they are highly rated and incredibly cheap for a set of 255/70R18s. I've been searching around and have found very little on extended bumpstops...
  7. Remote key fob no longer available for 1998 RR??

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I finally got my BeCM back from Martin and have my 98 4.0 SE running again. Many thanks to him. In the mean time I decided to order a remote fob as people have said this is really the only way you should be locking your vehicle (and it would have avoided my immobilization problem caused by my...
  8. Diesel hybrid no longer available

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    A friend of mine wanted to order a hybrid diesel and was told LR discontinued the engine option in Europe. That's a pitty because it delivered V8 diesel torque and power at the fuel consumption of a V6 diesel. Anyway, better alternative must be on its way, but it won't be the 2 liter petrol...
  9. Bluetooth no longer detects phone

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    I have a 2012 Evoque and the bluetooth has been kinda flaky, but it worked. Recently I brought my Evoque to a local mechanic to get an oil change and some other miscellaneous stuff, and I mentioned to the tech that the 'Service Required' message appeared whenever I stared the vehicle. So (no...
  10. How to keep radio on longer

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I notice that as soon as you turn off ignition, even if you haven't opened a door, the infotainment shuts down. Now you can push the volume button or the start stop button to get it to come on for a while, maybe 10 minute max, and the the system again forces a shutdown. You can keep this up...
  11. How to keep Exterior Approach lights on longer?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hey all, just picked up my car yesterday it was one of the last 2015 Supercharged RRS on the lot but well equipped. I had a 2016 on order but cancelled when this deal came up. Anyhow, I am IN LOVE with this car, however, I've been really annoyed that the exterior welcome lights (rear tailgate...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi all, about to pull trigger on a 2016 RRS HSE, my first RR. I found this new bulletin dated May 15 with pricing and changes from the APril bulleting I see on this board. New bulleting notes that remote start will not be available on 16 model year. After remote starting my Grand Cherokee the...
  13. Longer Yuelang X1 Is A Mini-Me Range Rover Clone

    General Chatter
    Can't stop laughing. From the article: Land Rover officials are no doubt shaking their heads in frustration right now after seeing the ironically named Longer Yuelang X1, which is a poorly conceived and miniaturized replica of sorts of a Range Rover. 10 pictures and full article .
  14. Putting in longer wheel studs... whats involved?

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I have a nice set of wheels ready to go on, but need to put in approx 6mm or 1/4" longer wheel studs. Did a search, but no real answers. I see that at least on the front there is limited space due to the bearing configuration. What is the rear like? Anyone got advice or real knowledge?
  15. Takes longer to start when engine cold

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hello all LR enthusiasts. Just joined the forum and am glad to be here. Picked up an 05 rrs supercharged with 150k miles on the clock last week. My question is, it starts up right away during the day, but when I go to start it up in the morning, it takes between two to three seconds for the...
  16. L405 MY14 navigation no longer gives directions

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    The navigation on my L405 has worked perfectly for 12 months. Just recently it's stopped giving directions. Chooses route successfully, by then after I tap "go" no directions ensue. Spoken directions simply say "please refer to the map". Does anyone know of done form of reset I can try?
  17. L322 wiper arm adapters no longer sold?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    We had some old posts about some wiper arm adapters to make it possible to use "normal" wiper blades referring to jager engineering. It seems as if they no longer sell those... short of some sort of DIY project is anyone aware of any other kits which will allow "regular" wiper blades to attach...
  18. Tow hook no longer locks

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    The removeable tow hook on my 2010 Vogue no longer "locks" or "cocks" itself when removing it from the housing. This makes it very difficult to refit the hook; which should just push in and lock. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
  19. So.. the Range Rover no longer commands a premium does it?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Has the supply caught up to demand? They seem to be selling at or very close MSRP these days..even on eBay. Far cry from even a month ago.
