Hi James,
Ha, a Landrover convert! But you don't mean from LC to LR, do you?
I also used to visit that forum on account of my LR SIII ownership,
but found the atmosphere too rarified - some good technical info
shared mainly among close buddies. Infrequent posters are just
As for SR, I could tell you more horror stories. I can't speak for
their suppliers, of course. But on the few occasions when I was their
customer, I was treated fairly well - if their product developed a
problem and it was reasonably clear (without a material proof, though)
that it was due to their fault, they replaced it free of charge. They
certainly take advantage of the fact that being the only 4x4 &
off-road outfit in Greater London they have a market of 8 mln people
all to themselves. In many respects they are not worse than high
street banks or telecom companies we all love to hate.

Hi James,
Yeah no worries there- certainly from Landrovers to the other direction.
Sorry you didn't get on with LR4x4- we are very cliquey and it's something
we are trying to change- it doesn't help that we all know each other! If you
want to come back and say hello then please do- it's a great site for off
roading properly- must be at least 4-5 events each month advertised on
there. I would also really welcome another LC owner for a bit of moral
I agree with all that, but in the 4x4 world people will go to whichever
supplier gives the best value for money and I just hope that SR have shot
themselves in the foot in that respect. They just take take take without
giving anything back, and I think people start to resent that after a while.
