I just bought a bright yellow 1997 Range Rover 4.6 HSE with the GEMS engine. As I expected it has a few relatively minor issues, (light bulbs, idle valve, etc), but generally everything seems to work. It rides and drives extremely well for a vehicle of its age. I purchased it primarily for use in the winters where my other vehicles, all 2WD get stuck. Still getting to know how some of the stuff works, probably going to purchase a RAVE CD.

GOrgeous. The AA yellow is my fav colour. As for RAVE you can download it for free. See the FAQ stickie.

Reminds me of the Beetles song about a Yellow Submarine :).
You should be very visible in traffic. I've never ever seen a yellow RR. I really like my red one, but a yellow one would be nigh irresistible.

My sister calls mine "the short bus" in a very politically incorrect fashion

Definitely my favorite of the P38s! I especially go wild for the yellow piped seats. Drool.

By the way, those are called the "4.6 HSE Vitesse". Only came in red or yellow and about 100 - 150 of each color were made. Read up on them on the homepage. I wouldn't be able to beat one up in winter/salt conditions.

Its kind of funny. This started as a winter 'beater', but the more I fix and the more I read, the more I like it, so things are now being repaired. So looks like I have yet another project LOL.
