Ok guys, I have decided to go with a RRS SC MOST LIKELY if not just HSE 06'...

I am debating on whether to go for one thats about 45k miles and pay lets say 35ks for example, or go for one with 55k's miles and pay about 31k's.

Also noticed many RR on autotrader are in the range of 40-45ks miles just before warranty ends. Is this a sign of headaches coming? Because I called the Land Rover dealer on warranty prices and he said 3yrs 36 months, $4,086 with $250 deductible. Is that worth it or just too much to pay...I never buy extended warranty and have never had problems but wondering if this car needs it because hte guy said "this car isn't a car I'd own without warranty"

No way - you mean the guy who was going to get a fat commission off that policy said you should buy it??? :)

Do yourself a favor and put aside $4100.00 aside for repairs / maint. and your more than likely not going to exceed it in 3 years.

Ima go 06 not 10' though, trying to figure out if its worth paying an extra 5k for SC or just go HSE.

If your going 06 then definitely want a S/C

I've ran my 10 HSE against a 09 S/C and mine is still quicker...

I had the choice of a exteremely discounted 2009 S/C (New) and 2010 HSE a hair below MSRP and I ponied up the dough and bought the 2010

It WAS stock for about a 2 weeks after the purchase :mrgreen:

I had all the claddings / front bumper / rear bumper painted white to match the rest of the car. Windows tinted 20% and 23" Rinspeed C5/1 wheels... Exhaust tips ordered today... That should about do it for now...

i was going to get a 2010 SC but the dealer only had a 2010 HSE, which i drove for a couple days No comparison on the interiors. 2010 has the interior that the 2006-2009 should have had. VEry nice. Otherwise my 2006 SC felt like it performed about the same or better than the 2010 HSE.
I have not driven the 2010 SC yet.

Factory is actually 25% however they only make either 30% (too light) or 20% (just perfect). Since the front windsheild lets in light it gives the appearance that the front 2 windows are always lighter than the rest so with 20% being slightly darker it makes them all look exactly the same

I got them done at Sunshield Glass Tinting in Sherman Oaks for $60. Took them about 30mins and I was out the door. I get great deals from them since I've taken a dozen cars to them. If you wanna go there let me know and ill even roll with you there and get you a deal

I am thinking of doing the ones that already come tinted limo and leaving driver side ones either clean as is or 30%.
