Ehh I don't know yet. I don't expect a power close feature as Land Rover is worried about motors being shorted out when fording water.
No TDV8 anytime soon. Probably not till the end of the decade. The next Gen F150 is supposed to have a 6 cylinder version of the TDV8 going in the european Range Rovers if that is the case the Range Rover might get the engine sooner.

The RR ICE system is made by Alpine, but has been modified (of course). I remember reading about it on the LR3 forum about Alpine announcing at the last CeBit that they were releasing a native iPod connector the current generation Land Rovers...
DVD Nav is by Denso, sound system by Alpine using their MOST entertainment network technology (sometimes referred to as M-Bus). It's a pretty good system, but right now details on adding aftermarket stuff to it is sparse... if you have a good installer locally that does a lot of Alpine business, ask them to have their sales Rep make some inquiries for you...
Try these two links:
That may help point you in the right direction... I also did a google search for "Land Rover Alpine iPod MOST" and came up with some after market stuff - give that a try...
The first link above has a link in it pointing to a CNET article that shows an iPod hookup for Land Rovers...

Does anyone know when the 07's will be available in North America?

It will vary by dealer when they can get them - I was told if I wanted one, and ordered it this week, I would have it by December... but that was custom order for some exotic stuff I wanted in mine... try asking your dealer...

Do you have standard seats or LUX seats???
LUX seats should be slightly softer and offer more adjustments to get the seat just right for your back.
Even without the LUX seats you have tons of lumbar adjustment. I would try playing around with that some and seeing if you can get things right.
If that doesn't work then probably some kind of memory foam.

#897 of 1002 brake pad replacement
Sep 18, 2006 (1:50 pm)
I have 05 RR with only 28k miles on it and the BRAKE light lit up on the dash. Dealer told me that I need to replace the brake pads, about $650. Is this normal for RR? I had BMWs before include X5 and brake pads were good for 40K and beyond. I do realize that RR is much heavier. How about the price? Can I have my mechanic in a local shop to do it for half of the price, even though IT IS a leased car? Thanks for any input.

Yes unfortunately it is normal. I replaced the brakes on my '05 with 17k miles. I drive in a lot of stop and go traffic in the Atlanta area. $650 is about how much I paid for my brakes. With all due respect, for the life of me I can not understand why you would pay $80k for a Range and then take it to a local shop to save ~$300. Spend the $650 and move on.

A version of the Range Rover diesel V8 avaliable in Europe will go in the F-150 in 2009. I am pretty sure that means Land Rovers will get that diesel engine as well.
