  1. Talk to me about 2006 MY

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I have an opportunity to buy a 2006 S/C with 153k mi. Haven't looked or driven it yet, but talking to the (single) owner, it seems like it's been taken care of very well, and recently a number of big ticket items have been replaced, namely transmission, cooling system refresh, brakes all around...
  2. Talk me out of buying this used Mark III.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I had a P38 and it was good to me for the most part. Now that I've been without a Rover for a while, I was thinking about getting back into one. How much of a deal breaker is this: a 2006 HSE with 110k, no service records, but has a P0960 code (trans limp mode because of sensor) and the MIL...
  3. Cant Talk to BECM

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hi All, I have a strange issue when connecting to the OBD port. I turn the Key to the 2nd position and then connect to the port. Im able to connect to the EAS system and supply changes/ clear faults as needed. When I try to connect to the BECM and or ABS systems it blocks me and immediately...
  4. Should I? which one? Talk me out of it! UK Pre owner!

    General Chatter
    Hi everyone, I have just joined and posted some information about myself in the intro section - It would be rude not to! In case you haven't ready my intro I am from the UK. I don't have a garage big enough for a Range Rover but am OK with knowing the difference between a hammer and a...
  5. Considering a Classic- talk to me about RUST

    Range Rover Classic
    I'm seriously considering a LWB Classic for a weekend trip car. I've owned many RR but all were after 2000 or so. It doesn't take much research to find out about the rust issue with these vehicles. I am fairly handy. Things like head gaskets, alternators, fuel pumps, etc don't scare me. Rust...
  6. Who can talk Tech on the SV exhaust?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I know this is sacrilegious heresy to some but personally I believe it’s perfectly OK for a vehicle with 510bhp 5.0 S/C engine capable of 0-60 in 5 seconds not to sound like a battery operated hairdryer or a very tired mosquito. As quiet as a Queens fart, as they might say in England. Rovers...
  7. Talk me out of a Disco.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I'm considering selling my 96 p38 and buying a 2004 Disco2. I know they have some problems too. I'm getting to know my truck inside and out and I'm not looking forward to learning a new vehicle but with 182000 on the odometer I'm just waiting for something big to break. Anyone here have any...
  8. Talk me into a classic

    Range Rover Classic
    I've been lurking for a while and have an itch to get a classic. I'm hoping for a swb hard dash model. Basically i'm wondering is this a good idea? Is the maintenance and upkeep as bad as people say? I can wrench but i don't like getting stranded. How much should i expect to pay for a good...

  10. 2000 4.6HSE Talk Me Out Of It

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    So I am looking into purchasing a 2000 4.6 HSE owned by one family since new. All Service records and maintained at 1 dealership and one private garage its entire life. The car has every receipt right down to the oil changes. It has 160k miles and has had the air suspension deleted. There are 3...
  11. Talk me down from a 2008 L322

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Roverinos; I have been in love with the L322 and RR's for 20 years or so. I now have the money and opportunity to buy a beautiful 2008 with about 100k miles for about $22k. It is a super clean "wife car" that never saw a toddler. I paid for an inspection and it came up super clean and it has...
  12. Can't talk over speaker in 100,000 car!

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Am I the only one pissed off about not being able to talk hands free in a brand new 2014 RR? I always end up putting the phone next to my ear because those I'm conversing with tell me the sound quality is awful. I've read some previous posts about the problem being related to a small...
  13. Close to Trading in RR... Talk me out of it!

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Currently own a 2003 4.4L HSE with 158k - runs like a dream and have put a LOT of resources into it over the last three years. Can't seem to resolve multiple oil leak issue after changing out most of the PCV valve system and inspecting the hard to change hoses. Head gaskets still leaking oil but...
  14. So anyone want to talk about there mods ? Ill go first.

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    So when I bought this is was a standard HSE. I love black but the metallic grey trim pieces were rather boring. Im old so I like the chrome on black look and decided to spruce her up. Ive added some simple but (IMHO) classy items. chrome grille chrome headlight surrounds chrome fender vents...
  15. need some Mk IV owners to talk me out of buying a MkIII

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Debating whether to buy a 2014 RR or buying a nice used 2012 Lux with 17k miles on it here locally. I've had a 2006 and 2010 RRover, currently driving a F150 platinum. I just can't seem to warm up to the new styling, I like the old look better, and the higher price doesn't help either. I'm sure...
  16. Let's talk self leveling...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Simple question...what part of the EAS controls self leveling besides the height sensors? Simple resistance goes to EAS driver then to EAS computer then to BECM right? So with that said, how does the car know not to self level while driving?
  17. Guys, I've been thinking about adding the side steps, but I want you guys to talk

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Guys, I've been thinking about adding the side steps, but I want you guys to talk me out of it. Is it worth it? does it have functionality? and please show me some pictures of it if you have it on yours. Thank you.

    Hi All -- as I posted in the "New members Intro" section, I am a newbie. I have owned a Series III 109 before, but am now contemplating Range ownership. Here's the deal -- I am moving from Seattle to Fargo, ND for at least the coming year, so will be driving the 1500 miles in mid-August --...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hey guys, Plugged my mates testbook in the other day to read and reset any codes after sorting my gearbox but for some reason it will not connect to the computers. It will allow engine ecu to be read but nothing else at all. Just says some sort of error. Used the bule lead as it asked and it...
  20. Let's talk stickshift ... and diesel. *beatingadeadhorse*

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    I love the P38. Stately, splendid on or offroad. For the most part. I don't think I need to argue in its favor on this board.`) Two issues though. I'm brainstorming in public, here ... surely the recipe to look like an idiot.`) I can't do auto transmissions. To put it in perspective, I'm...
