United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Sport TDV8 HSE Stornoway Grey

Should be simple enough for the manufacturers to reinforce the doors to prevent this happening. Side-hinged doors can have some angle fixed to the inside face to stiffen them up nicely as a DIY retrofit. Tricky to retrofit on a sliding side door though because there's not much space between the door and the body when open. 2012 SDV6 - it's missing a couple of cylinders
2008 TDV8 - it was a labour of love and is much missed

United Kingdom 2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Santorini Black

I have a Transit Custom, they are either being broken into or stolen, they get in by simply grabbing the front door lock with some mole grips and if it hasn’t had the security update the back lock open, and they empty the van.
I have a Flush Hykee door lock, to stop this, dead bolts on rear and side door, to stop the peel & steal, Dislok on steering wheel and a tracker, ODB port protector, and it’s covered by CCTV. What more can I do. MY 13 3.0 SDV6 HSE Black Edition
Santorini Black
Ivory Premium Leather
Side steps
Disklok !!!!!!!
Mud Flaps
Spare wheel protector
