    Default what have you done with / to your Range Rover (Big Body) today

    not today, but yesterday - got Walter of LRExtreme to do some massaging and so forth to the Rangie

    O man what a difference in power - she picks up a lot faster than before and the NOISE!!! oh boy the NOISE when the Supercharger starts screaming.

    SWAMBO tried to describe the noise but could not

    did I say how fast she (the Rangie NOT SWAMBO) is now after she had been massaged?

    Sounds great.

    One day I will buy one. In May this year I had my eye on one and after lots of thinking I went back to buy the car and it was gone.

    Pulled a taxi out of a hole on witkoppen.
    The dummy had cross-axled himself and spun a hole under the back wheel. Tyre was already smoking when I got there.
    Traffic wants moving so I thought what the heck let's have some fun

    The passengers were in the mood to donner the driver. Maybe I saved someone's life today

    Not sure saving a taxi driver is exactly in the interest of public safety though...

    The best was. He was revving and spinning and trying his best to crack the windscreens of all the cars in the road behind him. I hooked him in 1st gear low range and idled him up . Then I told him to turn left at the next intersection into Waterford and buy a vehicle with a little more articulation

    He got a good soaping today. Big smile on his face as I parked him in the garage. Next week it's 114,000km service, then the inside will be as happy as the outside Click image for larger version.

    All the gear and no idea.

    What possessed someone to decide that Putrid Pink was a fantastic colour for an L322!

    Any progress on the repairs or have you been able to get the matter resolved and decided to move on ?

    Repairs all sorted. Still debating as to whether I should keep it or not. My driveway does look very nice with a black L322 parked in it

    And nothing else drives like a RR big body!
