Haha very true ! If I didn't have the warranty I probably could have !

You would be shocked the amount money the warranty had covered repairing the thing !

when i took out the warranty is was around 1000 including VAT.. to give you idea the gearbox was nearly 2000 on its own well worth its waiting gold as covered the cost.

That's quite a list It seems to have been quite a good warranty you had there, to have actually paid out for all that stuff. How old was the car when you took out the warranty? 2006MY 4.2 SC

Indeed, whenever something went wrong i got it fixed as like things to work correctly.

Car was just under 10year mark when took warranty out, and i took out a 36 month policy (3years) wont mention company name as not sure forums rules. but was the highest package they had and they always payed out and authorized claims within a few days. only delay i had was with engine work where they sent an engineer to inspect but still payed out what they had too and was more then i thought.

They offered to renew this year but due to car age now and amount of work i had done in my eyes renewing was not needed and not much else to go wrong right ? Smile

i know theirs a lot warranty's which i read about getting out of paying but lucky for me i never had any issue's. 2003 Range Rover 4.4 Litre V8 - Adriatic blue

When my front discs and pads needed doing, i bought secondhand pair supercharged brembos (Around 250 for the pair from land rover breakers) and fitted them with new discs and pads, disc shields. Total around 450 for everything i needed.

Very nice upgrade and stops the big lump alot better. 2003 Range Rover 4.4 Litre V8 - Adriatic blue

Nice, how many miles has it done?

I looked into warranty but on 125k miles most were around 50% towards repairs.

I opted for the AA cover with repair.

looks good even when dirty !!
Could you tell me a little more about the Dice Audio upgrade it sounds like just the gadget I'm looking for. Will it work with android phones and DSP amp. I've looked at the website but only BMW listed I'm guessing thats one of the units you have used ?

Hey, Its a Dice mediabridge 1500

I had it installed by local guy. works very well. if you google l322 dice mediabridge there are lots topics on details.

as i did not fit i am not sure the whole way of doing it. but i know it replaces the CD charger and use the cd chargers plugs.

when done its all integrated into the steering wheel controls which i love. which makes changing songs much better. 2003 Range Rover 4.4 Litre V8 - Adriatic blue
