#187 of 299 2008 Land Rover LR2 SE - Stornoway Grey with Ebony - Good Deal?
Jan 06, 2008 (4:23 pm)
At first, I wanted a HSE then I realized that SE and HSE are not much different especially with the cosmetics.
2008 Land Rover LR2 SE - Stornoway Grey with Ebony
Two packages (lighting and Cold-climate)
MSRP is $36,450
Car price is $31,000 + taxes, fees (VA taxes are 3.0%), and Destination ($715). It would add up approximately $33,800.00.
I would like to add some accessories but I have no idea how much they would cost. Will I be able to find some accessories via the Internet that would be much cheaper than Land Rover dealership? I think I will let them to install the tow package since the wires will be required to rework. I don't know if the crossbar will be easy for me to install them. Here is the list that I would like to add on my vehicle:
Do you think it is worth to have 3M chip protection on this vehicle? Are all the accessories negotiable? I would like to know if it is really worth to have Resist-All.
Do you think this is a good deal?

Doing it yourself with accessories should be very easy and yes, you can find everything online for much less than the dealer charges, including the 3M. Check out roverconnection.com. If you don't feel comfortable installing the tow package yourself (I've read posts on other sites that it is relatively easy - just drill a couple of holes), you can buy the tow kit online and have your dealer install it for you. Check out clearmask.com for 3M kits, which you can also install yourself. They have a video online of the installation process and it looks fairly simple. You can even buy Lo-jack online, but you still have to have it installed by a professional lo-jack installer. It is the same cost as what the dealer charges ($695) so this I would just buy from the dealer if you want to finance it out over the length of your loan.

I'm in Seattle and trying to decide which dealership to work with. Who did you deal with and where?

I live in Everett. I actually went down to Tacoma for my LR2 rather than Lynnwood because they were able to make me the deal I wanted. I was looking for an Izmir Blue HSE before Xmas and wanted to pay invoice. Lynnwood told me they didn't have any. Tacoma had one and sold it to me for $500 over invoice. While I was picking up the car in Tacoma, the sales guy told me that Lynnwood did have some Izmir Blue HSEs but probably just didn't want to sell them to me at the price I was asking for. Who knows? Maybe he was just saying that to perpetuate rivalry. But I got the car I wanted at the price I wanted. Lynnwood and Bellevue are run by the same people, so one benefit if you go to either one of them is that they will have twice the inventory. If you want names, e-mail me at dharmabummerhotmail.com.
Also, Spokane was selling HSEs at $500 over invoice and offered to deliver one to me. They didn't have the color I wanted, though.
#191 of 299 Quick RR HSE/SC Sale Price Question
Jan 15, 2008 (9:44 am)
New to forum - was looking for any thoughts on a realistic price that I expect to negotiate/pay on a RR. Am looking to buy within the next week or so. So far, the salesperson (as expected) is not moving much from the MSRP - I have not pushed negotiations yet until I get some facts/numbers under my belt. These are the 2 models/quoted prices I am deciding between:
A new '08 full-size RR HSE with rear DVD and 20" wheels - best price so far is $82k.
An '07 full-size RR SC pre-owned with 9k on the clock - best price so far is $78k.
I have seen posts re using coupons and dealers passing on marketing support discounts to buyers.
Would be v.grateful for input on what people have paid or what sort of reductions are realistic.

Somehow your question about Range Rover got posted into the LR2 forum. You might want to move this to the RR forum.

I have been looking at LR2's, needs to be "used" to cross the border. So far the prices I'm seeing are between $31,900 and $34,500 $US for a loaner or demo vehicle with 5,000 miles on it. From this forum it looks like this would be too much to pay. Anyone know what I should be paying?
