#3446 of 4548 My 2006 LR3 HSE
Mar 29, 2006 (10:15 am)
My stereo system seems fine. Maybe my ears are not 'fine tuned' enough to notice the difference between my OEM unit vs. and upgrade. It sounds great to me! Actually, it seems better than the Mercedes ML500 that I traded in.
I have really cranked up the stereo in the Land Rover and I'm very pleased with it.
One thing I've noticed "after" I bought the LR3, is that the bottom of the tailgate has a different finish on it compared to the flip-up part. It's only noticeable at night when headlights are shining on it. The bottom part has more of a dimpled finish.
For those of you who have a Black LR3, if you don't mind taking a look at night and see if your finish is slightly different between the top and bottom pieces, I would appreciate it. Maybe mine was repainted but it only had 11 miles on it when I bought it.
Also, I think 99.9% people would not notice the small difference, I'm very picky.

Land Rover paint is far from perfect. I assume you are probably talking about a slight orange peel effect. And you'll notice everything with black paint. It happens. Anyway, it probably wasn't repainted. A repaint job can exceed factory... unless the paint shop is garbage. Times have changed.

I appreciate the info and will look at having that done in April. The subwoofer, however, seems to be working all too well. With the bass and subwoofer settings at their minimums, I still experience far more bass at higher volumes than I'd like. It's definitely enough to shake the windows of others vehicles on the road and alert my neighbors that I've entered the development. Is this a sign of a cheap sub or will I just need to turn the volume down when I come upon a red light....

justinainde, you might have a real problem. I'd suggest you visit a dealer and listen to another SE trim LR3 (the HSE is different) and compare the sound. There have been cases where the amplifier/entertainment system was misprogrammed.
Personally, I find both the HSE and SE stereo system lacking... decent for most stock vehicles, though.

Are you using the Multi-Connector port or the headphone jack to the AUX input? Also, what kind of cable are you using? This sounds like a great reason to trade the blackberry in for a Treo. Thanks, Katie
#3452 of 4548 LRS "Suspension Fault"
Mar 31, 2006 (11:50 am)
The amber Suspension Fault light came on tday in my leased 2005 LR3. I have 4100 miles on the vehicle. It was at LR last week for it's 6 month maintenance. On the computer screen it flashes "SUSPENSION FAULT".
Has anyone experienced this? I need to use the vehicle this weekend for a good 50 miles or so. Am I foolish to do so without getting it checked first? I would prefer to wait until Monday as I dont have access to another vehicle.
Thanks in advance for your responses.

I use the headphone jack. Buy the special plug adapter from Treo which has low impedence. The voice control on the Treo700W is impressive! Even through a bluetooth headset!

Its probably nothing. Is the amber suspension warning light on in the dash cluster? And if it is is it just on or is it flashing? Amber is probably not a bad thing, amber flashing could be bad and red is bad so call your dealer if it is red.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Yes, the amber suspension warning light is on. It is not red nor is it flashing. The words "SUSPENSION FAULT" do flash on dash screen though.
