    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    <u> First impressions in Snowy Conditions: Fitted to my 2014 RRS SC a month ago. In our first snowstorm of the year in the area, I tested them out on a drive to our favorite local hiking location and was very impressed. The tires provided excellent initial grip in approximately 7-9 inches of...
  3. Winter Windshield Washer Fluid - Need Recommendation

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Looking for recommendations on fluid replacement that is both effective in the winter (freezing temps, where salt is applied to the roads) and safe on the paint/trim. The Nextzett Anti-frost product sounds promising, but gets mixed reviews on Amazon. Their Kristall Klar product is well...
  4. 2011 Range Rover Winter door problems

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Went out this morning to go to work and the RR door was frozen. Thought the door handle was going to come off! Once the door opened it wouldn't close. Well actually wouldn't latch. The interior handle did nothing. Opened window and the outside handle was also DOA. Ended up having to use...

  6. Winter wiper park

    Range Rover Velar / L560
    So I've put my wipes in Winter Park mode as it just snowed the other day. One question and one gripe: Question: Is it literally just a little higher up when in "relaxed mode"? Because I kept thinking it literally comes off the windshield. But all it does is still rests on the windshield...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello all. I have driven my 2001 Disco II for many years now and despite her age, she has only logged 133,000 miles and I've been quite happy with the car. I was lucky enough to find a Rover mechanic (Rovers from all over the country actually come here) that treats me quite fairly and honestly...
  12. Nokian R2s vs Pirelli Scorpion Winter Tires

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Here in the Bellevue area we had our first snow last night and plenty of ice. I had the opportunity to drive my 17' Supercharged in some real world conditions getting home and I quickly realized some winter rubber was in order. The Goodyear Eagle's didn't have the stopping power I would like to...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi, Since I am planning on going up the mountains a lot, I got myself a second set of wheels (19") and winter tires (Pirelli Winter). This past Saturday a local tire shop (America's Tires, which had very good ratings) mounted the tires on the new rims and they also installed new TPMS. I opted...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hello friends! Ive got a question regarding installation of winter wiper blades for a 2003 Range Rover HSE, part number DKC500080PMD Noticed that these have significantly longer "legs" going from blade part the base part, so when installed, they look elevated from the windshield. In combination...
  16. 22” winter tires. It’s not ideal for deep snow.

    Range Rover Velar / L560
    But it is ideal for looking good at the whole foods parking lot in the middle of winter. So I went ahead and did it anyway :) At the very least I now have some solid winter capability without taking off these 22” beauties. Pirelli Scorpion Winter. It was the only winter tire available in...
  17. Prep for winter?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Hey guys, The rover has been flawless over the summer. Not one single issue except for the engine needing a carbon treatment. My question is what would be the best things to do other that an oils spray to winter proof this thing? Last winter the tranny coolant lines rusted out and as well as...
