    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hello all, I recently bought a 2014 RRS v8 Dynamic, always been a RR fan, figured I'd get in on one cheap. So far so good, it has needed front and lower control arms replaced and the passenger front door and rear driver door actuators are in the process of being replaced. Odd for a car with...

    I went out of town for a month and left my car in garage. Came back to this awful smell right when I turn the ac on but then it goes away after 15 seconds.

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    My 2015 SVR continues to have a strong permeating smell of sulfur in the cabin after WOT. I thought this would become less noticeable with more mileage but this is no the case. Is this smell a nature of the beast? or is there a technical fix available from the dealer?
