This is one reason I like the Mk3 so much more than the Sport or LR3:





Land Rover took the time to tuck the exhaust pipes between the A-arms instead of under them. The overall profile under the Mk3 is very flat, a nice touch.

Are my eyes working properly, or do I see black leather shoes with white socks?

i've been playing around w/ the "auxilary ventilation" settings. awesome feature. the G4 sits outside all day under the sun. i set the aux ventilation to 12pm and 4pm. what it does is ... at those times... the inside hot air is replaced w/ fresh air. not cold a/c air but just fresh air. i'm loving this feature.

i've seen this feature in the BMW 740's and never used it. always thought it would kill the battery or something.

i also discovered another nice feature which only pictures can describe it... will post pics tomorrow.

Nice. That's perfect if you're ever the designated driver.

Your G4 is pretty slick Han. I especially like the quasi-map lights on the side mirrors. A true T & C vehicle.

That mesh doggie guard is sweet. The fact that you can move it forward makes it even sweeter.

night time view...



here you can see better the LED's subtle illumination of the dash and console instruments.

I wonder if that navigation screen can be made to display this:




If it could, then how cool would that be?

Who needs this? I just ordered this for my Defender:

It's only $14.95 plus S&H. And I got the cupholder caddy. And it doesn't drain the battery. It's a win-win-win.

oh man, now that's a rover...

Han: awesome truck, must be a blast just to sit in it!
Can't help but think, however, how far rovers have come since the simple series trucks of years past. I dig the vintage vehicles but this one is amazing.

John's version of Defender's "auxilary ventilation" settings?

It looks like the RR has a lot of BMW influences on its design. My wife's X5 has the same mirror lamps (I have no idea how to turn them on). It also has a similar attachment system for the doggie guard.

my mom used to have a 740 and i can definately tell similarities. obviously the engine is the same but cabin details and just about everywhere... very german.

the side mirror light on the MKIII works everytime the door is opened.

well... the G4 is in the shop right now getting TLC and due for 30k service. i miss it already... been driving the LR3 last 2 days and ... i'll just say... i really miss the MKIII.

the range rover has come a long ways since 1970. i'm curious to see where the next redesign will take the range rover legacy.
