Range Rover returns

Had this for nearly 14 years-broken down twice in this time due to faulty door locks. It's been with a specialist for a couple of years who's fitting it in between jobs. It's had a new headlining, sunroof and aircon repaired, service, intermittent height sensor replaced, new battery, gearbox flush, as much security removed as possible etc. It's just been valeted and I should pick it up in a few days. Indictors will be replaced with the original orange before return. Hopefully last another 14 years.

Nice. I think the P38A will be coming into its own soon.

Prices starting to lift I recon.

That’s a nice looking P38 Smile

We’ve had P38’s for years and are down to one now, a 2002 Vogue SE.

Are you sure yours should have orange indicators? In 1999 on a T reg I’m sure it was they changed from orange to clear.

I thought they changed the rear lights at the same time? That still has the early rear lights, not matching the clear indicators at the front....

I could be wrong, not a P38 expert....

Yep-should be orange! He was showing what clear ones were like to a customer and forgot to change them back. Will be on orange when I pick it up.

I just assumed it was your rear lights that were wrong with it being a 1999. Smile

Our 1998 had the orange lights but all of the 99 ones I’ve had have always had clear. I wonder if yours was a 98 build registered in 1999.

Either way, it’s a lovely looking car Smile

Orange indicators back on-picking up next week as slight leak from an air con pipe. I know it needs new number plates-but these are the original Ripon Landrover ones.
