I just purchased a truly mint condition 2006 Range Rover Sport HSE. I am truly excited. I was hoping to do some instant upgrades and was looking for some advice. (floor mats, running boards, ect) My budget for this initial project is about $3000. I am putting wheels off until next year. This vehicle will see some off road use, crossing creek beds, use in snow. I will also be using this vehicle for work also, which involves driving clients around from time to time.

Any advice on GPS/Audio/Satellite radio. I prefer XM package, is it possible to convert from Sirius?

Any suggestions is truly appreciated.

I know it is a very open question and everyone has there on taste....I am just asking what most of you would do if you were in my position. For example, mats, cargo net, running boards, tinted windows, new exhaust?

Can you post a photo of your new RRS? That may help. I would start with new mats (I think Atlantic British is having a sale) and perhaps window tint. Personally, I've never been a fan of sinking a few grand into new wheels when you may see some off road conditions. Umbertob is on point with the satellite radio, no XM.

If you do tint...go light on the tint.

Edwards was cruising through Midtown -- allegedly at double the legal alcohol limit -- with two teammates, his girlfriend and a pal, and got testy with cops for pulling him over because of overly tinted windows on his Range Rover, sources said.

"Why was I stopped for having tints if my driving didn't lead you to believe I was drunk?" Edwards asked, according to prosecutors.

floor mats for sure. rubber ones if you're gonna offroad.

running boards - hmmm. on one hand, convenient for clients getting in & out. on the other, lessens your clearance when offroad. but if your offroading is just lighter, then might not matter.

wheels - what do you have on there now (19s?)? are you thinking one set for road and another set for offroad?

cargo net - i got it and it's not that big of a deal. i'd save for later if you really want it.

Since you bought HSE ,you probably have 18 inches wheels ,I personally advice you to get 20 or 22 inches wheels ,they change the look of your car ..
Go to Sale section on this forum ,a member has posted his 20inches wheels for sale ,very good price .

I agree with shrek, get a nice set of 22's, and put some cooper zeon ltz's on your 18's
if that's what you have. Then go from there.

The 20"s are the way to go for rims, I have a set of 20" oem stormers for sale, they came off my 09 sc, I posted an add in the for sale section but since I dont have 5 posts because I am new it was deleted off it. I was looking at about 600.00, the rubber isnt in good shape so you"ll need new tires, but let me know if anyone wants them, I"m located in San Diego.
