    i'll have to have my car wholesaler comb the auctions for an older range rover now! how reliable are the higher mileage range rovers? many of them are 100k miles on the odometer. I wouldn't want to update one that will have many mechanical problems.

      You can get them pretty cheap these days...Also, i would do an engine swap anyway, so mechanically you would be covered with a reliable simple engine like the LS1 for example. Compact, mid-weight, powerful, takes FI easily, can generate 500+hp on stock internals.

      Make a Range Rover Sport re-body that can take on the real current 2007 Range Rover sport!

        How tough are the swaps? Can any mechanic do it or do I need a specialist?

              Get The 4.6 HSE Models as their prices have all dipped to around the $5000 range even for late 90s models/ a little more for early 2000s

                Ive read about many, and discussed quite a few with friends that have done it.. never done it myself....but from what i hear it can vary dramatically. As you would imagine, space is a huge limiter, but in this case you are covered with plenty of engine bay room. Another thing is electronics, however, if you get the engine and trans and computer as a package and replace all the older run-down problematic rover components, it should be pretty straight forward. I would ask around to local mechanics, but i would stick to specialty tuning shops, import tuning shops.

                I would also consider doing the re-body first. Once you have the re-body completed you can try to get someone else to pay for part of the engine swap...people will take interest when they see what you have created..

                  I contacted ls1-power.com and they quit doing the LS1 swap as they couldn't make it work financially (cost of components/labor) with a high quality swap. They'd help w/ advice for do it your-selfers though.

                    youve got 2 different company photos, theres xotic from ireland that do the sport version,
                    and you have rangeover for the vouge kit.
                    both look easy enough to do, minimal cuttin mainly arond the rear lights to get the bigger,newer ones in.
                    i have seen both company kits at shows and the rangeover one looks a better fit and finish than the irish one, that looked a bit rushed.
                    as for the range rover (p38), get the best you can afford, theres loads to go wrong with these cars from electrical to mechanical.
                    i have seen high milers in the uk with sketchy service history go for 1200

                      i have done a lot of research in to both of these kits for my p38 and you cant compare both the rangeover which is a basic 9 piece kit to change in to the vogue and the xotic kit is 38 pieces ,obviously harder and longer to fit but its the difference between ferrari 355 and 360 different cars and different kits completely,i went to ireland to visit xotic and they admitted the car wasent ready to show in stonleigh and they shouldnt have went but the black jeep there was gutted and finished and they have done 4 sinse and i have been impressed,i have decided to build the kit myself and estimate it will take me about 6-8 weeks evenings and weekends and hopefully will have at the shows later in the year.

                        I did see Xotics Rangy at Stoneleigh myself, im glad you say it was rushed, the finish was awful IMO, I spent a long time going over there diablo/mr2 kit as well and all i can say is who ever did the welding on the cut and shut needed shooting, pigeon muck was more like...
                        Will be intrested in seeing cars when there finished, hope there an improvement and not just a cover up

                            They need to fix the back end of it a little. They need to do the quarter panels, and they need to have the back door protrude about an inch so it can have that pointy look to it. They also need to have the top spoiler protrude a little more. The back end of the car is way off. A new hood will help too, but not as big of a deal. Basically if you see this car in real life you will say "Oh look at the Range Rover sport, But wait something appears to be off." People will know something is wrong without knowing what it is! It's almost there do a few changes and it will be at an acceptable range.
