  1. It will be interesting to see if they’ve solved the problem where a gentle wet grassy slope will bring it to a complete standstill. Previously no amount of fiddling with the various terrain options would get it to cope with the initial amount of wheelspin on every wheel.
  2. Best quote yet though from a reviewer “about as much flex as an ironing board” 😉😉 All the jarring, tipping and bouncing makes it look like an extremely carp experience driving it off road - comfortable everywhere else, but...
  3. Remember you can’t buy a 110 passenger vehicle in the UK without paying the VAT and LR and their dealers get VAT relief on all of their applicable purchases.
  4. I’m not that dumb, I know how taxes work. 🙄 Just asking if sticker price in US includes local state and county taxes 😊
  5. So is sales tax on a vehicle paid by consumer at point of sale, or later? So the price they are showing in video doesn’t include the state & county sales tax?
  6. Don’t know, so let’s go by the car they actually bought and their total price as shown on the video. I just priced up the equivalent of their ~$55K 110, and it’s ~£51K here, so £9000 reduction from walking into a UK dealer.
  7. Ok, so add another $1400, so £6K discount for crossing the pond.
  8. I see that LR are still subsidizing US sales with profits from UK and Europe 🙄 Price starts at $50K vs £45K, so a £7K discount for shipping it 3000+ miles...
  9. Assuming you have the alarm, and not just central locking, then yes you’ll need an alarm remote key to deactivate alarm/immobilizer otherwise it won’t start. You could have your alarm and immobilizer deactivated fully by someone with a diagnostic tool like nanocom etc. or buy a key with alarm fob from someone like remotekey and have this added and synced to alarm with a diagnostic tool.
  10. How good are these where there’s tight access, for example the hole is near a bend/vertical surface? I have a memfast Rivetnut tool, and it’s mostly good, but if a hole is 8mm or less to a vertical surface I can’t get the tool in there to sit flat.
  11. I suspect not, probably manufactured before it was a requirement. It’s usually two digits for the week and two for the year. I’m not certain, but I also think it’s only a requirement for tyres manufactured in EU to have date stamp, not for ones manufactured outside and sold into EU, so you’ll find new US and Far East tyres without any date stamp.
  12. I think it must be me getting old, but I just think all of the LR products are overpriced and unappealing. I gave up buying them ages ago, so I’m not really qualified to judge, but I find they’re not much value compared to estates for a vehicle that for me spends practically all it’s time on road. For the last ten years my three new purchases have alternated between Skoda and Mercedes. Mainly because the Superb and E-class estates are the biggest on the market, so plenty of room for the two dogs. The first was 4x4 superb 2L diesel, then E-class 2L diesel RWD, then the latest, 18 mont
  13. I thought I read that’s it’s going to be early 40’s plus VAT and will be classed as a commercial vehicle. Can’t see that somehow, given that it’s clearly set up as a passenger vehicle. No doubt they’ll do a commercial vehicle too. So, if above is correct, it’s going to be about £50K in Uk- seems a bit much to me. Not compared to Defender, but I think that’s overpriced too. 😉
  14. Yes 4.6 v8, now I have room, and nearly all of the dirty/messy stuff done, the aim is to start on the engine over the winter
  15. Just showing these in case they’re ok, you don’t have to say you like them 😉😉😉😉
  16. 1000 CCA battery here... https://www.batterymegastore.co.uk/product/hankook-heavy-duty-commercial-battery-mf31-1000/
  17. Thanks, no haven’t updated thread -couldn't be arsed with all pics etc. 😉 I’ve got pics of most things if you want any. cheers
  18. Cheers DD 👍 Thanks, getting there slowly.
  19. Thanks John, my first thought was to build them myself. it took 13 1/2 months, but body finally went back on chassis...
  20. I wanted to fit flexi lines to my front calipers and run them down the radius arms, then straight to the master cylinder as this is a lot simpler solution than the factory mix of hard lines round the engine bay and along inner wings, flexi line, then hard lines from top of swivel to bottom of caliper. However, with the design of the RRC front calipers, the straight M10 x1 fitting hoses will foul on the track rod. Is it ok to fit the angled banjo fitting to all calipers? I’m assuming yes, as there’s appears to be nothing obstructing fitting one, so if I get an M10 x1 banjo fittin
  21. As has already been said you don’t need too much to move a rolling chassis. I use a cheap atv winch if I’m on my own to pull the chassis back up the slope into the garage. It’s just bolted to a workbench that’s secured. If you zoom in you can see it in this pic..
  22. Good to hear that you’ve found some time free 👍, I often see it in the corner on the walk around videos 😊
