    Default My 2013 RRS w/ 510 horsies

    I just picked it up a couple of weeks ago. It's one of the "limited edition" last gasp releases that manufacturers typically push out during the end of a long run. It says "Silver Package" on the window sticker. The two things I really like about my truck is that it has the autobio aerokit plus ebony headliner.

    I used to have a 2011 Supercharged with Startech kit. It's definitely more of a looker, but I just don't have the appetite to rip out the factory aerokit especially since there are add-ons available for it. I actually like the older key fob better as the new one scratches too easy and doesn't feel as significant due to smaller, lighter specs. The rear auto lift gate is handier than I thought. I know it's the last year for the steel body and I'm fine with it as I do not want a first gen LR build. I also love the current 2010+ design with its squared off looks which will be lost in the next gen designed from ground up to align much closer to the Cayenne as a drivers SUV. At that point, I'd rather get a Porsche.

    I'm kind of a Simon Cowellie like hard-arse when it comes to modifications. I know what I like and if I see stuff I don't like it really grates at me and I'm not afraid to let it be known so apologies for those I've offended in the past. It's nothing personal really as in my heart I just want to teach some folks how it's done. I'm actually a pretty darn nice guy with integrity. I never mess with another dude's woman, car and money w/ 1 exception: they don't pay me the same respect. At large, a hobby is a hobby.

    Style wise on the Range Rovers, I can't stand people who cheapen the look of them with mickey mouse mods like non-OEM LED lights, so-called upgraded HID bulbs, painting out the Range Rover DNA that is the floating roof, chicken wire aftermarket grills, and other odd ticky-tacky paint jobs. Go big or stay stock. Ill-fitting wheels is in poor form and so is the aggrandizement of otherwise stock rovers just sitting on a set of bigger wheels (really, what was so hard about that?). Rolling at stock ride height when upsized on 22s is like running for the end zone, but getting stopped right at the one cuz you celebrated too early. Black wheels are here to stay. Silver wheels are for your mom. Chrome should be outlawed. 99% of the people who b!tch and whine about lines on that Hamann/Techart/Wald/XYZ kit are also the ones who complain about pointy elbows on dime pieces. Get a life.

    Joking and the soliloquy aside, I just want to share what I've completed already and what's to come:

    -Kahn RS 22x9.5, 22x10 staggered wheels (gloss black and extra concavity in rear - thanks Alex!)
    -285/35/22 Pirelli Scorpions (xtra load)
    -Tag Motorsports lowering module
    -Kahn steering wheel
    -OEM running boards for that wider, lower effect (semi-gloss black)
    -OEM wheel locks
    -OEM black "Range Rover" wheel caps (Kahn wheels accept OEM lugs and caps - quality)
    -20% tint up front
    -Clearplex windshield film (saved my arse already in Vancouver BC)
    -Ventureshield paint film

    *Kahn wide arch kit for autobiography
    *Likely some amount of spacers to push out wheels further once arch kit installed
    *OEM LED DRL (on the fence as it kinda comes across as a design after-thought - doesn't sit wide enough or low enough on autobio bumper)

    I've purchased all my aftermarket goodies from Alex @ Tag Motorsports. Good dude. Ebay has good OEM resellers from UK and FL.

    I'll post pics here once I get some taken.

    Thanks for the entertainment, y'all.

    Lets see the Concave of the wheels - did Kahn do them specifically for you with more of a concave or are they how they make them anyway ?
    cheers! look forward to the pics!

    It's really subtle, but you can see that the center of the rear is more concave than the front. I didn't notice this before until Alex pointed it out. I dig it as on my previous RS wheels, they all shared the same (flatter) offset and width.

    Would that offset work for front too? Or is rubbing an issue? Since its lowered I think it with would good.. give it a nice wide stance

    Should look great either way can't wait to see it

    not sure, but if i eyeball it, it looks like the rear has a few mm more room to spare than the front thus the reason why the concavity works. wouldn't be a bad look to do the 10" all around, but i like the front/rear contrast so will stick with what kahn does.

    thx chrisD
