so - i'm looking at a bunch of cars - this one being the current favorite. i see this issue on ALOT of rovers - these grey trim pieces getting all crapped up. does anyone know how to remove them (easily) so that i can either completely strip them and/or repaint them?

They just pop when you pull them. Very easy to replace or paint. They are about $85 each to replace though...

Quiet Simply.....Speaks to how the car was cared for.....True Range Rover owners feel that their vehicles are sacred and take care of them to the Nth degree.

I'm sure if you look at other facets of the vehicle, you will find other cosmetic and functional flaws. I Have seen mid 90's Rovers that are flawless and I have seen ones that need to go to the scrap yard.

In My opinion, Your picture speaks volumes to how the car was cared for. Just my .02.

Yes it is true if you take care of the car these pieces shouldn't fake on their own, unless you hit them with something. They are all easy to replace except for the cover on the rear of the center console.

Well the rear cover you have to take the whole center glove box apart. I have found the pieces actually look better and resist clipping when you rub them with with some leather protectant. Just what I have noticed.
