Hey guys... I'm nearly there.

A few more questions:

Why does the 3.0 petrol have slower acceleration than the 3.0 diesel? I would have thought better acceleration was the perk for petrol?

Does anyone know how much a custom (SVO) solid paint colour costs on a new RRS order?

Are there any catches to ordering a new car through Rockar?

Some answers:

Torque

Don't know, but very likely silly money

No experience of Rockar, sorry.

Ok, one answer then. Very Happy MY2016 HSE D SDV6

Could it be because the Diesel has way more torque from much lower down the rev band, so once the car is rolling it can accelerate more quickly?

Although the original LR Autobiograpghy service of the 1990's and 2000's was not available on RRS, only FFRR, to have a custom paint job then was around £10,000 extra............. According to the LR website if you choose one of the optional special paints (satin and scintachrome) that are available for RRS today then you will pay an additional £6000 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW.... my fun car to enjoy bashing and denting 20 years old and still giving loads of fun
