RS S/C Vs. Non S/C, is it worth the price difference?
I'm going to be in the market soon for a new car, and I really love the Range Rover. However, for a big car speed is not the craziest thing for me. Are there any other differences besides the engine in the two cars? Can someone give me first hand experiences between the two cars? Is it really worth the extra $15k?

Yes the are some visual additions - grills, taillights, exhaust tips. The other items I am familiar with are the brembo brakes, factory SC wheels and usually the seats are will be "comfort"seats. It also depends on the year, I am not to sure the main diff in 2010.

if youre talking 2010, the SC is a BEAST. i wouldnt hesitate a moment to do the SC again, money well spent
engine, brakes, grills, dynamic drive mode, and a few other interior options, but those are the biggies

Comparably equipped there is an $11k difference in price. The items not available on the HSE that are standard on the SC are HUGE 15" Brembos, Locking rear diff, +135hp, Adaptive dampers, slightly different side grilles, clear taillights, twin chrome exhaust pipes and the knowledge that you have the more high-end model. You need to ask yourself if those added features are are worth $11k.
For some it's a no-brainer to spring for the SC while others couldn't care less about the added features.
However, this is assuming that you can get a similar deal on both. Last I checked (which was quite a while ago) RRSC's were trading hands for $5k over sticker.
I personally would go for the SC, even at $11k-$16k more than an HSE Lux. The added power and HUGE brakes are worth it for me on a 5600lb truck. Also, not many people take them off road (which is a shame because they're great at it), but if you do the Locking rear diff is a HUGE added feature. Besides, you'll recoup almost all of that in resale value with the SC while having a better ownership experience.

Tom, great post. About the resale value though. Before buying my truck I wanted an SC RR. Price difference between preowned SC and nonSC were almost insignificant (looking at an 07).
To me, SC are great, but I'd buy it CPO.

I'd say yes. i test drove the regular one before the Supercharged one and it just does not drive nearly the same IMO. I absolutely love the brembos and i love the pull this 6000 pound car gives haha2008 Black Tacoma
