  1. Thoughts on deleting fuel injector plug retaining clips?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi guys I’m finishing up a timing job on my 05 Range Rover with 4.4 m62 engine. As the title says, I’m leaning towards deleting the injector plug metal retaining clips to make future removal easier. Those things are such a pain in the butt to remove with a pick tool. I figure since the injector...
  2. Thoughts on the Range Rover Evoque!

    Range Rover Evoque / L538
    Hello everyone, My friend's sister bought a CPO Evoque and it's been in the shop 3 times in the past yr for various problems, luckily covered under warranty. If you have an intense career like medicine or law where you absolutely can't afford to take off time to deal with these kinds of...
  3. Thoughts on My Build?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    So I believe after much research (and lack of being able to find exactly what I'm looking for), I'm going to be placing an order in the next few days. Would love feedback on my build. Am I missing any "essentials/must-haves" or is there an option you see that I should just to aftermarket...
  4. Brake and 80K mile service thoughts

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hey guys- I have 89k miles on my 2014 RRS Supercharged and I am a few k miles overdue for transfer box oil change and the dynamic system filter change according to the passbook to service. I work with a local rover shop - they called the dealer for the parts for the dynamic system filter and...
  5. Thoughts on Rebuilding an Alternator

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    2004, 4.4L Range Rover started suffering many strange faults and after a battery/alternator check it was determined that the alternator was toast. It was still producing power so it appears that just the Voltage Regulator is the issue. Since there's no strange bearing noises or similar, and...
  6. Quick thoughts on MY18

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Stopping into the Portland dealer when picking up my '17 RRS I checked out a '18 to understand the differences, and I was surprised at how much has changed between '17 and '18. While the car feels similar overall, it's a very nice incremental change overall. Exterior New LED lights are very...
  7. 2018 Thoughts on powder coating the wheels and exhaust tips.

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I had always intended to black out the wheels and exhaust tips. Having second thoughts because these wheels look so good as-is. Up on fence. What are your thoughts?
  8. Thoughts on Atlantic British's Three Brake Kits

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hi all, it looks like I'm due for brakes and thought I'd do them myself this time around. I went ahead and browsed AB's catalog and it looks like they offer three different kits to choose from. Standard Brake Rebuild: http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/8859KA Upgrade Brake Rebuild...
  9. 2017 SVR “reaquired vehicle” - thoughts on buying?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hello, new to the forum and looking to buy my first RR - a 2017 SVR at LR dealer, but it’s a reaquired vehicle. Was sold new in CA. Had a fuel fill issue that apparently took too long to fix so LR bought it back (according to the dealer). LR documentation just says “fuel system - other” as...

  11. Researching 2010-2012 L322 for DD & towing - thoughts?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hi there, I'm contemplating a downsize of my "fleet" and am looking for a capable, nice SUV that will be a good daily driver but also support my weekend hobby. I race an E36 M3 and need to tow it to various racetracks up and down the East Coast. Currently, I pull it with a 2011 F150, but a...
  12. Considering this '89 Classic - Thoughts?

    Range Rover Classic
    I'm new to rovers and this forum as been super helpful for me to read. I'm looking for a classic to fix up a little— a long term project to kind of build my dream car— so looking for one that is drivable— not an every day-er, but a good solid baseline for a project. Found this one and I'm...
  13. SVR owners: Long term thoughts

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Dear all, I am set on buying a new RR Sport SVR (blue Estoril with tan/ebony seats). However, there is just one thing that is making me hesitant about it. Although I love the exhaust sound (and is one of the main reasons for buying it over the ATB), I am a bit concerned about whether it would...
  14. Thoughts on the Diesel engine?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Pulling the trigger literally any day on a 2016 RRS looking for right color and package combo, noticing the diesels are cheaper and possibly less desirable, are they any good? I know the mpg is great but Diesel is always a great highway car and not much of a short distance drive kind of car.

    Hi all, I just realized I have been a member here since 2008(!) and this is my first post:tongue: Yes, I have been researching and been on the fence this long! Well yesterday, I went and ordered a 17' RRS, and had a few questions, and am hoping to get some thoughts or advice on what I have...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Hey there all! been lurking a while as I get our 97 4.6 back up to snuff, thanks for all of the info you have provided! I'm hitting the stage where the engine is coming out for a serious bit of R&R. At 214k miles, we have to put a full dose of oil in over a 300mile trip. My issue is this. I...
