United Kingdom 2009 Range Rover Vogue TDV8 Santorini Black
Land Rover specialists around Hertfordshire / Essex.

Going to see a 2007 TDV8 this week, thinking about finally taking the plunge into the world of a FFRR as have a kid on the way and the boot space is a big draw.

I live on the Herts-Essex border and wondered if there are any recommendations for someone who knows what they are doing to look after it?

A bit of googling has thrown up this place which seems ok - https://www.broadfieldsgarage.co.uk/ - thoughts?

Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks

Kit

Bonus question - is there any way to gauge the condition of the turbo’s when viewing a car?

Thanks.

Just so I am clear these two options are official dealer service departments?

I have read a lot about avoiding LR dealer service departments hence my question about the independent specialist I have found.

Lookers is definitely a sales and service centre with an official LR badge

Taylors is a service centre which is LR approved but not a main dealer like Lookers. 2014 (L405) VSE in Black with Ivory
2011 (L322) VSE in Black with Ivory
2005 (3.2 V6) Porsche Cayenne in Black with Savanna
