    It should seem easy enough, but I have been searching for 6 months for the right RRS, with no luck. Any of you guys have one and thinking of upgrading to a new rover?

    Looking for lower miles, serviced, and no mechanical issues.
    White, Silver, Grey, Black exterior
    Interior color isn't important.
    5.0L NA preferred, if its supercharged thats ok. No V6/diesel

    Let me know if you guys have something!

    There's your issue! Lol, just kidding, but seriously, it's hard to find nice ones that don't need a ton of work, and have lower miles.

    I just picked up a 2014 FS yesterday, but it has 95K. BUT, it's a 5.0 SC and pretty mint.

    Don't you have dealer access? Check out ACV or similar maybe? Could be some gems in there.

    I have a 2014 full size black/black RangeRover Autobiography. Paid I think 139k new.
    Just rolled 100k miles, (all highway) I have spent 20k on it in the last 2 months.....ugh.

    My suggestion is whatever you buy is to get an extended warranty.

    Good lord...That suspension stuff is a PITA. At 100K mark on the 2015 FS I was working on it needed upper and lower control arms so badly I was surprised it wasn't sagged on itself lol.

    Yup but that suspension goes up and down on a very very heavy vehicle and they don't squeak or pop and ride like a cloud. Eventually it has to give out. 100k is perfect acceptable. The 1000 bucks a corner is the problem.

    To the OP

    Avoid the 2010s and maybe 11s. They have a few extra issues on those v8s that require complete replacement

    Going totally OT here, and sorry for the hijack, but if anyone is looking for a tune on a 2013+. I have a brand new VR tuner available that I got for a neighbor and he decided to stay stock. It's for the 3.0SC, but I can send it back to VR and they can change the tune to any year/engine as they all use the same ECU connection hardware. $675 shipped (retail is $750). If you don't have a 3.0SC it will take about a week for me to ship to VR, change the tune and VR to ship it to you. 65hp gain on 3.0 supercharged & 74hp gain on 5.0 supercharged. Message me if anyone's interested.

    Thanks guys, this thread turned interesting;) Yes is have access to multiple auctions, but the Rovers that run through are either ‘17-19 lease returns or 100k mile roaches. So no luck there. I would ideally like a ‘12-13 pre-facelift but I have broadened my search for lack of availability.

    FYI, I just bought a brand new sport -3500 and zero pct financing. Originally I was looking for a used one too and the deal on new was too good to pass up. Best , Kirk.
