16/09/15 – goodbye old, hello new website!
Launching the new site at the LRO Show 2015……don’t forget to follow me at @MyRangeRoverUK on Twitter for latest news and updates!
Welcome to MyRangeRover.co.uk a website devoted to the upgrades and projects that i am working on for my Range Rover and the latest news and developments from Land Rover.
My Range Rover is a L322 Range Rover Vogue complete with the 2012 front and rear facelift in the best colour combination available Java Black with Sand/Parchment interior. I purchased this car in May 2010 for my 21st birthday, and i have decided that i want to document any upgrades and maintenance that i do on the vehicle in case it can help any other Range Rover owners in the future. All the documentation is located in the MYRR Blog area on this site.
I have spent the last 6 years upgrading my Range Rover to the Autobiography spec, i have fitted the full 2012 Autobiography Black front and a rear facelift and the interior has all genuine factory spec upgrades fitted.
The L322 is a complex luxury vehicle, they require lots of time, money and most importantly patience! If you are looking to buy one for yourself there is a few key points to remember. If you find one and the price seems too good to be true, the true is it most likely will be. The earliest L322’s are now coming upto 15 years old, if they have been cherished then they will be a modern classic over the next few years. However if it has been neglected and badly maintained it will become a huge money pit very quickly, prices for the common faulty parts have been increasing at an exponential rate over the last few years with Land Rover wanting to cash in, for example with just one part alone, the transfer box shift motor was around £450 only a few years ago, now it will set you back almost £1,000! My L322 has been throughly maintained for its entire life, when I purchased it there was a service history complete with receipts totalling in excess of over £12,000. Over the last 6+ years of ownership I have spent an additional £12,000 in servicing and maintenance so £24,000+ in 13 years shows just what it takes to keep these vehicles in a showroom condition. Be sure to check out the pre-purchase check list for things to check when taking yours on its test drive.
I hope this site can help other Range Rover and Land Rover owners, please leave messages if you find anything helpful or useful.
