    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Since completing my dual exhaust re-build I like to drive with windows down (hey, it's summer Downunder and as Jeremy Clarkson would say: 'What a Child!') but when the engine is cold and with only moderate acceleration applied, I hear an odd 'venting' sound from the front of the car like the...

    Range Rover Classic
    Yeah, I took the plunge and have started my swap. I actually started a few months ago. After fixing the head gaskets and getting it back on the road for 100 miles, the oil and coolant became one again. I decided I already have a Disco 2 with the same motor. And maintenance and mileage suck...

  16. SVR vs Porsche Cayenne Turbo

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
  17. SVR vs Cayenne Turbo

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Am biased so I like the RRS even though it clearly is no match for the Porsche. Its an SUV not a sports car and actually good enough. Even the regular V8 RRS is good enough. I would recommend the pulley and software tune on the rover it really wakes up the monster. https://youtu.be/BAaIXyAnI3E
  18. SVR Owners - Supercharged to SVR? Or X5M/Cayenne Turbo

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I have had my 14 RRS Supercharged since October of 2013. I like it alot, but whenever I climb out of my 911 Turbo, I feel like the RRS is missing some crispness. Yeah, I know - of course it feels mushy. I have the itch to upgrade to an SVR or jump ship to the new X5M or a Cayenne Turbo. I'm...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    My dealer is trying to get me out of my RRS and into a 15 Cayenne Turbo S. MSRP is 151 or 155k, but I am sure he will deal on it. Anyone on here ever own or drive one (prior generation was not very different from the current one as far as I can tell)? Assuming the deal makes economic sense...
