  3. 2012 RRSS turns off once I take foot off gas

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi, so my 2012 Range Rover Sport supercharged 5.0L just turns off once I take my foot off the gas.

  10. RRSS brake question

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Just wanted to get an idea of how low the brake pedal should drop while braking in a supercharged rrs with the six piston brembo's.

  12. Question about bedding new brakes on RRSS w/Brembo's

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Didn't really have time to properly bed in my new porterfield R4-s pads (on oem rotors) when I first put them on 3 weeks ago. At the time, I did 3-4 quick stops from 60 till pedal went a little soft, but I wouldn't consider it proper bedding. Had some time tonight to go out on an empty road and...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi All, Seems this thread comes up every month, but it appears as though you can no longer get the full sized TFT cluster on the RRSS w/Dynamic package. I noticed that all that is listed is the 5 inch TFT cluster which is different from the TFT virtual instrument cluster. This is quite...

    Greetings to All: Has anyone had recent experience with discounts on new Supercharged models? Whether it be a 2012 leftover or 2013. What could one reasonably expect to knock off on a leftover? Thanks. Tom

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    From the day I took delivery, a couple of radio stations that were being broadcast in HD would basically play for a few seconds and then start replaying the prior 4-5 seconds of what ever was being played. Then, after doing this a few times it would skip forward (I'm not doing a very good job...
