These are the side indicator LED bulbs I bought, no bling, just the same orange and brightness of the OE ones but get the instant on and off like the rest of the LED indicators.

Less than £10….

Cheers mjd! LEDs ordered from fleaBay. Thumbs Up
ps. You’re right. We went for dinner in the FFRR. It does feel very special.

Thanks for posting the US Brochure. Interesting that 2012 US cars still got a gear selector stick and not the rotary selector. Was that for the petrol engines only? Also, I noticed they got the earlier rotary selector for the special off road program modes. I'm guessing the UK brochure will include Westminster spec and the pop up gear selector.

Agreed - Your M5 is a keeper. Thumbs Up

I just checked the UK 2012 brochure. It has the rotary selector when it is the TDV8, but when the picture is showing the stick, it quotes the “Autobiography Supercharged”

Hi, yes, the rotary gear selector is only on the 4.4 TDV8 which I don’t think the US had. They got the 5.0 and the 5.0 Supercharged.

The 4.4 TDV8 doesn’t have a rotary dial for the terrain response as I read somewhere that LR thought it might be confusing with the rotary gear selector.

I think there is a brochure for the Westminster specifically. That sat between Vogue and Vogue SE trim wise.

I must check out some of the sites that sell car brochures. I'd like one for the Westminster at a sensible price of course.

Thank-you Dr Rob. Thumbs Up

I have now "stolen" your list...

FUTURE WORK PLANNED: (courtesy of Dr Rob's post here - https://www.fullfatrr.com/forum/topic44115-75.html
* (TBC) 8 speed gearbox Megaflush as preventative maintenance
* Flat aero blades
* GAP IID BT diagnostic plug-in tool ("Buy it from Island 4x4 or Duckworths "(site sponsor)
* Front and rear diff oils replaced. Preventative maintenance.
* New 13 pin electrics fitted to enable regular battery top-up charging via Ctek adaptor
* LED upgrade to side indicator front wing repeats ordered from https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Osram-LED-Amber...635-2958-0
* Full underbody Lanoguard or similar
* LED upgrade to side indicator front wing repeats planned https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Osram-LED-Amber...635-2958-0
* New battery on soon as preventative maintenance

* (TBC) New top coolant hose fitted as a precaution
* Coated all door seals with Gumme Pledge (I had to do this on the Touareg...)
* (TBC) Sill covers removed and rear wheel arch lips inspected

I am still going through the remainder of the list. And SWMBO thinks I am slightly nuts!

Thank you to Dr Rob and everyone for their advice and suggestions - I am gobsmacked

Q. What are the 2 items, within the LR tiny ziplock bag?

Morning folks,

What is the best way to contact Bodsy?
I sent him an email a week or so ago but haven’t heard anything. Or is that normal!
I know he’s a busy chap

🤣 I have tried to contact him a few times. He isn’t a mythical creature cos folks have posted pics….

He probably doesn’t come up to where I am though.

Think folk suggest using the link on his web site, but that didn’t work for me…

That’s not helped I know….

Thanks Gents, I have ordered a Duracell Photo 3 V 1/3N Battery, to replace the current flat battery in the "plip"...
