Any regional differences in RRS?

Hi all! Does anyone know is there some differences in specifications of the Rage Rovers for example in the ones sold in UK/Germany (northern europe) and Italy/Spain (southern europe)? Particularly I'm meaning, is there differences in the heating units?

Thanks! I just heard the same from one dealer, that in the north Europe (and UK), cold climate packet is as standard, in mid Europe (like germany) it should be optional and in southern Europe it hasn't been available at all.

Edit: The reason I asked about this is that I'm trying to find a used lhd RRS to be used in north Europe and I have been looking it from germany, belgium, luxemburg, france and italy, so I think I will forget Italy from the list.

I had a look around at different specs when we were toying with emigration. Uk specs are amongst the best, If buying new get a uk spec lhd?

Oh and do it right for export etc you might not have to pay tax Mike

Yep, that would be the best option, but I can't afford to buy a new one and I'm going to move inside EU, so with a new car I would have to pay the tax anyway.

Ok - understand about the cost/tax.

It might be worth looking for a UK spec LHD...they will be rare but not impossible

No idea about this company but have a look:

Spanish cars do not have FBH fitted as standard, plus you rarely find a car with a sunroof. However Cars ARE a LOT more expensive due to taxes. In Spain - Santorini Black 2011 HSE
In UK - Not saying, but its NOT a Muddy Milk Float.
Gone - Several Lode Lane vehicles

Thanks! I have searched in all ways but UK spec LHD is hard to find. The one you refer on car and classic I would come and buy it if it just were 13k cheaper. Very Happy Actually, I did sent email once to the seller, but nobody did answer!? Other you refer run on wrong fuel...

Thanks! I think there is same thing with "Italian" Range Rovers? There's a lot of Italian-import Range Rover's in Germany market now, because of the increased taxes in Italy (told by a german dealer who imports cars from Italy to Germany). Most of them are missing e.g. heated seats.

And just check the prices of these cars in Finland. Very Happy They are ridicuously overpriced in there when you compare to e.g. UK/Germany, because of the rarity of these cars and huge car tax!
