  4. MY14 ATB SDV8 cup holder ACC socket and cigarette lighter

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    All, I've recently wanted to use this socket to power up a dashcam, it is dead. I've checked fuse 60 behind the glovebox and visually it is fine, but swapped it out anyway and retested. Socket still dead, even with the ignition on. So, anybody ever removed this, or know how? The other issue is...

  6. Traded in my 2014 SDV6 for a 2016 SDV8 Vouge

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I purchased a 2014 SDV6 almost 2 years ago. I really love my truck. However there were 2 things that really just bothered me. 1. When I bought the truck I knew it didn't have the panoramic roof, but the deal was to good to pass up. I still wish I had this option because I think my kids would...

  8. SDV6 SDV8 Reliability

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    hey friends, just wanted to ask on your own personal experience, how reliable is the SDV6, SDV8 models?

    I'm a new member and thinking of changing into a new RRVogue but not sure which motor size to get. Does it matter for resale? Does it matter for day to day comfort and driving? Will I notice .9 of a second difference 0-60.. I don't own a boat or trailer and haven't towed anything in the past...
  11. SVD6 vs SDV8

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Gentlemen, Is there anyone who have had the privilege to drive both the SVD6 292 hp AND the SVD8? I've only been able to test drive the SVD6 and I'm curious how big change it is and if you get some "V8 feeling" with it (character and sound)? The SVD6 did go smooth and well, but (as so often) I...
