I am just curious how have you gotten three, and now a fourth, Supercharged Range Rovers?
Did you lemon law the first two over check engine lights?
What part of the country are you in that you have a dealer that can get four SC Range Rovers? I mean I know my dealership is not that large but since July of 2005 we have only been able to get six Supercharged Range Rovers from Land Rover.
Which dealer are you using that has that much allocation?

Looking to upgrade my 2003 Rover from it's 19" wheels to the 20" supercharged wheel on the 2006 Rover.
Has anyone done this? I've heard varying stories...easy as long as you get the 20" specific lug nuts...to...you have to switch out your hubs.
I've seen 03' to 05' models with them, so I know it can be done...but how easy?

I traded an 04 Lexus Lx470 (which ran flawless) for an
06 RR HSE about 2 months ago. The RR now has 2200 miles on
it and has been back to the shop 3 times now. First time
was the Transmission at 65 mph slipped to 3rd gear and a
light on the dash stated, "transmission fault, limited gears only", so it was towed to the dealer.
Second and third time was for the same reason, stopped the vehicle and went to put it in park and the engine reved
high and the check engine light came on, was told by the
dealer that a software upgrade was on the way and all was ok. mmm, the Lexus ran great and now I am sort of sorry I traded it, but love the looks of the Rover. I hope the next gen LX comes out soon because I may be trading for that.

Are you sure you want to purchase an '03? There were positive changes made on the 04's that I wish I had waited for. Also, it's never good to purchase the first year of a new body/design. In 1 1/2 years, my car was in the shop for 56 days! There were countless problems. Problems have tapered off, but it sure took alot of visits to the dealer to get "the bugs worked out." I'd look at the '04's. Just the change in the stereo would make it worth it.

Can you please list the changes between the '03's and the '04's, aside from the radio? Also, when was your '03 built? (Build tag is on the drivers door/sill).

Interesting story in the Chicago Tribune today.
Remember I told you about the guy who plowed his RR into the train station, resulting in the death of a ticket agent.
Apparently, the guy went out on the lamb and was finally caught, US Marshall service ran DNA evidence on blood in the vehicle and compared it from items they recovered from his home.
Anyway, the thing that really caught my eye is that the article mentioned how they obtained a search warrant to review the data from the vehicles onboard computer in an effort to obtain the speed the vehicle was traveling at "and other information"
Can they get that info and exactley what else can the onboard computer tell them *big-brother-shivers*

Yeah most modern cars have black boxes in them now that will tell investigators how fast someone was traveling and if they had their foot on the brakes when they wrecked.
Cars that have GPS navigation have even more info stored in the computer.

I'm a LR enthusiast; my husband and I have owned our 97 Disco for 5 years and have had no complaints. Never have we had a better vehicle (on or off road). Now it's time to acquire another truck, and were interested in the RR.
Could someone please tell me what towing capacity the RR has? We would probably buy one just 'off lease', so it would be a 03-05 that we would look at.

7,700 LBS if the trailer has built in trailer brakes but I would not tow all of that weight around on a regular basis.
