What to look out for with a used L494?

So, the Mrs has vetoed buying a drug-dealer car, so the hunt is on for an L494.

I'm not familiar at all with the new gen vehicle, so I would appreciate any help with this.

I'm thinking of the SCV6 instead of the V8, any one else here have one?

thanks --

thanks Andy!

more generally, anything specific to look for on a 2014/2015 model, if the price is right I may even go for the SCV8.

with the L320, I could have taken it to my indie for fixes/repairs, but the L494 seems so much more advanced, I'm not sure my indie will be able to cope with the electronics. Sad --

only downside that I'm seeing with the SCV6 is that they do not come with ACE suspension.

Is this a recommended feature? or can one live without? --

hi guys,

I asked a dealer some questions about an SCV6, are his answers accurate? Especially the part about the suspension?

Thanks!


Q: Also, am I right in saying that the SCV6 models did not come with ACE suspension/Dynamic? Or was it an option and some models may have it? Finally, is it possible to fit 19" rims on this vehicle, or is the minimum size 20"?

A: Good morning sir, yes you can put on 19’ mags. Comes standard with ace suspension but is now called the arc suspension. --

2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

I have an SDv6 HSE Dynamic and the only thing I can see that is different in the spec between S/Cv6 and SDv6 is for some reason best known to Land Rover you don't get red brake calipers on the S/C! Everything else is the same for UK spec cars. 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

Thanks Tim!

Unfortunately it looks like Dynamic was only added to the SCV8 & SDV8 for the South African spec, so not available on any SCV6 here.

Am I correct in saying that if Topix lists 'Rear Diff Open', it means the vehicle is not equipped with an electronic rear diff, and only has the centre diff lock? --

hi guys,

is Continuous Variable Damping really worth it compared to 'normal' suspension? and cost of replacement?

thanks --
