    Has anyone come across any information re: Land Rover's announcement that 2008 RRS and LR3's will receive refreshed interiors? I wonder if the refresh is anything substantial. Think about leasing one but there's no real financial incentive to lease now if the 2008 MY will be in dealerships June/July as I've seen posted. Is that still the guess on arrival date?

    Interior Refresh Article

    Link to news clip about the refreshed interiors. Pictures are of the LR3 but it mentions Land Rover's announcement at the Geneva Auto Show.

    Plan on stopping by the Land Rover Dallas, TX dealership this weekend. Can anyone recommend a good salesperson?

    That fits with my info as well. The LR3 is going to get a luxury interior option lik the RRS with softer leather and better seats.

    The RRS is going to get new wood choices and double stiched door panels.

    I was looking into purchasing RRS. On LR website they tout the ability to write off RRS at alrmingly higher pace. Has anyone tried & got away with it? What I understand is if gross vehicle weight rating is in excess of 6000.lbs than the std depreciation schedule does not apply & can be depreciated at a higher rate. I believe this clause was for trucks. Any experience?? I would prefer not to lease.

    It is true for any vehicle with a GVWR over 6,000 lbs. This was originaly intended to help farmers and construction companies buy the heavy duty trucks they need for work. Talk to your accountant but yes you can do this on any Land Rover, except the LR2, as they all have GVWRs over 6,000 lbs.

    Thanks B.Rover. I talked to my accountant, but he was concerned that the empty weight is less than 6000lbs, so it may not qualify. Thanks.

    It is Gross weight that matters not curb.

    I'm about to finalize a deal on a 07 RRS SC.
    X-Plan Pricing with base MF on a lease.
    The one I want is in another state and the dealer states he needs $1100 to get it here.
    Is this right? Just seems like too much money given it came from the UK for less than $800.
  • Out of interest, how much discount off the MSRP is the dealer giving you on the X-Plan?
  • gasdocgasdoc Posts: 13
    $68,715 after addition of stormer wheels...

    I went to the Land rover dealer in San Diego to test drive the Range rover. I wanted to drive the Supercharged but the sales person said that they are only allowed to test the HSE. I took it anyways, and I was really impressed by the handling of such a big truck. My gf and I really love this truck so we decide to get it. The dealership had the exact color combo we wanted so discussed some numbers. I told the sales lady that I wanted $4000 off and she basically laughed at my face. She said that since Range Rover Supercharged are so rare, especially White/ivory that the best deal I can get is $1000 off if really wanted to get it that same day. I really wasn't expecting to get 4k off but I think that if I am going to buy a 95k vehicle I can do better than 1k off. I am buying and not leasing by the way. We really fell in love with the RRS and we are going to check couple of dealers in the LA area and see if we can a good deal. The dealer in San Diego told us we aren't going get anything less than MSRP at other dealerships. I heard that the 08 RRS are coming in July, so I might wait to get one of them even if I am paying MSRP. At least is going to be a 08! Can anyone please recommend any dealer in the Los Angeles area that are willing to negotiate on the Range Rover Supercharged? Thanks!

    They only make around 2,000 Full sized Supercharged Range Rovers a year for the US market. Most dealers only have one or two unless they are huge, huge dealers.

    I actually know one of the sales guides at the San Diego dealership and no way are they going to give the car away for 4,000 dollars off.

    So...does anyone know when 08 models are coming out? I extended my current lease specifically to catch a better deal (i.e. better than MSRP) on a 2007 RRSS once 2008 models come out and I have heard of two estimates - June and July. Does anyone have any info?

    I have heard many of you cite to "new models" of the RRSport for 2008. I don't know where you are getting your information. they don't refresh the truck every year and they already have 2006 and 2007 models. I've never heard of a new 2008 model anywhere. even if there is one, it's going to be identical except for many a few new little gadgets. why would they release a 2008 when they just started selling the 2007s. it wouldn't make sense. I don't think they are releasing 2008 models. maybe someone has some credible evidence?
  • gasdocgasdoc Posts: 13
    The 2008's are coming early (June/July) as per credible threads at rangerovers.net and my dealer.
    I understand these cars started construction April 30th.
    You are right, this is not a "new" model. Just a few minor upgrades, mostly in the interior.

    Yup as of right now the 2008 MY vehicles will be here at the end of July beginning of August.

    As per my previous post...I'm about to purchase a RRS SC: Java Black, Ivory, Lined Oak.

    I really want the Stormer wheels but the dealer doesn't have any in stock and states 1) they can't take the stormers from another vehicle and put them on the one I want and 2) to get the only one he can find in the US from east coast would be $1800 to transport.

    Anybody know any good options to get the stormers? I've seen the 22 stormer threads around here but don't think I can pull of that much bling. So I'm talking about a way to get the 20 stormers.

    I've seen some of the aftermarket replicas on ebay but they seem pretty expensive without tires.

    Anybody know dealer cost to get them? I wonder if I could get them at dealer cost if it would make the deal...

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    what was the deal that you got on your rrs

    I believe "X-Plan" pricing is defined as 4% over invoice.
