Just seen this on EBay - couldn't paste link with IPad - I know a few members have asked if it was possible - it does fool you so it likes upgraded but its about 2 inches too high Rolling Eyes 14MY Autobiography Dynamic - SDV6 - Fuji White Smile

To be fair looked at it a few times now & it is not that bad - the lettering would be a little squashed when placed above like on the actual model year change but would you even bother moving it from the trim below Question 14MY Autobiography Dynamic - SDV6 - Fuji White Smile

I would leave the lettering at the bottom, but it is quite expensive at 345, plus paint costs Shocked MY2007 RRS TDV8 Black - tinted glass - side steps- stormer grille - 20" diamond cut alloys - alpaca leather - TV/DVD pack - some blingy chrome bits & bob's

Agree - but watch this space - I bet all the aftermarket companies will be knocking them out over the next few months after all its only 4 pieces of plastic - would be interesting to compare the actual parts against the real items - including price Wink 14MY Autobiography Dynamic - SDV6 - Fuji White Smile

on the modern RRS's that have this feature, isn't the lower part more of a brushed aluminium finish rather than a chrome finish ? Seems so on google images...

You can even retrofit the genuine 2012 LR tailgate.

Have a look at this 2008 one on ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111188342953?ssP...1423.l2649

It even has the facelift door cards, leather interior and steering wheel fitted, although the seller has informed that the paddles do not work. The seller only lives about 15 mins away from me, might go and have a look at it. 2014 L405 SDV8 RR Autobiography Cool

i've done some digging on the tailgate, apparently a titanium-silver trim will be introduced to resemble the newer rrs model. could well be a big seller, price a little silly though. but maybe its because they're the only supplier #monopoly (yep, that's a hashtag folks Mr. Green ) Recently bought a 2007 RRS HSE TDV6 for a Pimp-My-Ride-Project.

He says its done 50,000 on the spec list, but the picture of the dash shows 58918 miles Shocked I'd be asking where he got all the parts from to do the conversion Rolling Eyes

so i've just ordered my tailgate trim, should be here next week. very interested to see what it'll look like, especially with the range rover lettering. watch this space Thumbs Up

my bumpers are still at the painters, should all therefore be fitted at same time. Recently bought a 2007 RRS HSE TDV6 for a Pimp-My-Ride-Project.
