For those who have color coded those vehicles...which parts did you have painted and which did you buy already painted? Please also refer me to some sites to check out.
Thanks

I had the entire lower trim coded (page 5 of the show off your rover thread). I also had the pillalrs coded. I bought the door handles from the dealership. I believe they also have either coded mirrors, coded mirror caps or you can have the existing ones painted.

Someone on the forums can paint the inside of your light to match. Dude. If you wanted, you could have an all red truck. Instead of being murdered out, maybe it would be redrum'd out.

Well I have been researching quite a bit and seem to have found that I can get the door handles already painted. However there seem to be stick on options and then actual skins to replace the door handles. Next, the back bumper that is grey with the range rover letters, I really can't find alot about it. Looking over the internet it seems as they don't offer it already painted. In addition alot of the parts that I have seen are from a British aftermarket store. I was hoping that those who have modded their RRS in these ways could point me in the right direction with these things in mind. Thanks

You'll need to get the bottom trim of the liftgate painted at a body shop (MY09s and later come standard with that trim color matched to the car.) The Range Rover letters glued on the trim are generally not reusable and will need to be replaced with new ones to make the job look good. I think they cost about $8/letter ($80 total) through a body shop. For the handles, either get your handles painted - but that means you may have no usable car while the handles are off - or purchase a pre-painted set and replace it yourself at home: It's easy (instructions on the forum) and you can keep the original handles as spares or sell them.

Colour coded?

As in red for fast, green for envy, blue for sad?

What is a fair price to have the bottom tail gate piece color coded? Java black...
