South Africa 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Siberian Silver

does anyone know if 19" rims can be fitted to the SCV8?

or are 20" wheels the minimum size?

thanks --

Does it have Brembo brakes? If so then there are only a few styles of 19's that will fit over the calliper and plastic caps. If you use the search you will find posts about which styles fit. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

not sure, all the ones I have seen here have the red calipers, so I'm assuming these are Brembo? --

In the UK Red calipers are standard on Autobiography and on HSE's (as of this year for HSE) are a NCO, I don't know if S/Cv8 was sold in SA in HSE and Autobiograpghy models but here in the UK it is only available as the Autobiography. Which year are you looking at naks? 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

thread resurrection


So the Mrs has finally given the go-ahead to start looking at buying another LR, so the hunt is now on for a 2015-6 RRS SCV8 Razz


Anything in particular that I should look out for on these year models? It is more likely that I will only be able to get a 2015 within my budget. --

hi everyone,

can anyone please tell me whether the red badges on this vehicle were factory options, or are they aftermarket upgrades?

Thanks Andy, how about the other badges?

I haven't see any RRS with red badges on the bonnet or boot or wings, so I'm just wondering if these were added from factory or just painted over by the previous owner. --

Early L494's were fitted with silver letters on bonnet & boot or you could spec the stealth pack which gave you matt black letters,bonnet vents plus vents in wings.Im sure the later 2017+ come with black lettering on bonnet & boot standard.

United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Stornoway Grey

The red "RANGE ROVER" on the bonnet and tailgate are not standard. They are nasty blingy stuff added by a previous owner (who should be beaten in public for crimes against good taste).

The red "SPORT" badge on the tailgate is standard and tells you it is a dynamic. Thumbs Up 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed
