England 2005 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Rimini Red

Know what you mean only had mine 2 weeks can't believe how comfortable and pleasant it is to drive. Towed the tin tent for the first time with it usually I have to get used to the car so stick to 40-45 mph first time out, but with peanut (don't ask I'm sad and name all my cars)I was doing 60 on the m/way after the first 15 minutes even in a howling gale and rain felt like I was cruising round town. Should have done it years ago. If it ain't broken down it soon will

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

Mickey are you sure your car is Bonati Grey and not Stornoway Grey? If you look at the VIN plate on top of the radiator left side it will tell you the paint colour and touch up code. I ask because Bonatti was discontinued in 2007 Stornoway Grey came onto the colour chart, Bonatti is slightly brown tinted. My 2007 TDv8 was Stornoway Grey. Also is it a genuine factory HST as those were relatively rare - many were dealership built specials from a kit and the difference was that the factory HST’s came with an e-diff as standard that the dealer built cars didn’t have. Yours is in lovely condition externally, certainly been well looked after. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.

Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW

Tim you would be correct! I had a Bonatti grey disco 3
Yes it is a proper HST, and does have the e diff, sensor ontop of the diff, if I mind correctly? A friend owned it for a long time and I knew he looked after it and when he decided to upgrade I said that's the one for me 2008 HST TDV8 in Stornoway Grey.

Is that those Gloh back lights? Get a 2005-2009 RRS (FAH500210) sat nav/dash mat here - the one that wasn't there when you bought the car.
