  1. Or put a suitable diode in series.
  2. Raiders of the lost ark is, I suspect, popular at the moment due to the death of Sean Connery, and this may have been the reason you and Chris were talking about it. People search for the films Sean Connery has been in, and the popular ones naturally are watched more, moving them up the main popularity charts and hence they’re appearing in both yours and Chris’s recommended lists - combination of current popularity and your previous viewing preferences. The problem with Google is that even if you turn off monitoring your browsing/search activity, as you say they go on household activity,
  3. Hi Tuko happy to post them to you - I’ve got a local LR parts supplier 5 minutes away I can pick them up from, so you wouldn’t have to pay for delivery twice. cheers Steve
  4. Thanks Jon, it will be fed via VSR from one of these 👍 https://www.bluesea.com/products/7748/SafetyHub_150_Fuse_Block
  5. So to the rear of the RR, I’m running two lighting looms, one for each side (6 way connectors), then running an extra loom for fuel tank pump, sender, and a rear power outlet, plus 3 spare on the 6 way connector. For the rear wiper and rear heated window, I need to run heavier gage wire, so I could run these two in their own loom from the relays on the bulkhead, or I could run a single 12v feed in say 12mm2 to a distribution pole in the rear and position the wiper and heated rear window relays in the rear. That way, I have a fused 12v permanent feed at the rear with plenty of capacity already
  6. Hi DD If the bumper is bare steel you could use... https://www.bilthamber.com/paints-and-coatings/electrox Give it two coats as instructed, then after 4 days, scotchbrite it, panel wipe it and then overcoat with whatever paint you find easy to touch up with. Then when you ding it, just touch up. For the top coat CIO or corolless chassis paint are ok, but if you have the hammerite already that will be ok too. cheers steve
  7. 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.
  8. 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...
  9. 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.
  10. I’m not that dumb, I know how taxes work. 🙄 Just asking if sticker price in US includes local state and county taxes 😊
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. Ok, so add another $1400, so £6K discount for crossing the pond.
  14. 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...
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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. 😉
  20. 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
  21. Just showing these in case they’re ok, you don’t have to say you like them 😉😉😉😉
