    I'm planning to get a 2nd or even 3rd hand Range Rover 5 door as a project car. It won't be for daily driving, just a weekend car to have fun with. My model preferrence would be anywhere from 1987 to 89.

    I'm not really asking where to buy but perhaps some of you (or your Dads) have some tips or experiences with 1980's Range Rovers.

    Below is the 1987 5 door.

    kasi ung dating may bigasan na nag-rerenta sa amin, may LR-defender siya, 3 pcs! pero converted to orig. rover diesel na.... full-restored at un ang pang hakot/deliver nya ng bigas!

    tinanong ko kasi intriga ako sa defender nya..kaya nalaman ko.. pati din rover-mini may parts dun..

    "rover-parts" ang tanda ko name nya! mahirap lang daw kung non-common, parts, iniimport.

    Honestly,I never heard a good things about Range rover but if your wallet is thick then go for it.Maybe you can do a reseach online just to save you a headache.

    di matunog ang RR..more to enthusiast talaga unlike the common cars we see on the road: sub- and compacts..

    Definitely maganda yung RR na yan, 20,000 pogi points!...pero mostly V8's ang engine nila...be prepared sa high maintenance cost and fuel cost.

    A friend of mine have a RR Discovery na lightly used lang, pero nung bumigay ang aircon, inabot ng almost P100,000 ang gastos kasi full eletronic. The bad side, hindi pa naging kasing ganda ang A/C nya like before.

    So suggest ko, ay stay away from full-electronic na RR IF wala kang idea how to fix it either. Ang mahal kasi ng parts nito.

    Yung RR na very early models are non-full electronic, so that could be an interesting option for you. Pati na rin ang Land Rover Defender series siguro.

    are you kidding? the range rover is one of the top luxury suvs and it's also a "real" suv because it can go offroad, unlike most "soft-roaders" that we see today.

    if by "matunog" you mean "may dating," i beg to differ... lalo na pag makintab pa ang paint. pogi! hehe plus why else would rappers always mention their range rovers in their lyrics if not for the bling factor

    nope mali ka po, matunog i mead, "bukambibig", lalo na ng common tao. kaya nasabi unlike sa sub- at compacts kasi, kasi sinu kahit saan madidinig mong pinag uusapan nila..

    iba parin dating ng RR, kung baga, crowd of JAP cSUVs kayo, pero dumating ka na nak RR, papunta palang nililingon ka na agad sa ride.

    ung defender nga dito sa amin, sobrang love ng mayari kasi, may nag-offer na ng 500 thousand(ung below 80' na defender, open ung likod, sparetire sa hood at tailgate!) di pain nya binitawan...

    anywayz, nilinaw ko lang na ang RR, kahit lumang medium to showroom condition, parang benz at BMW lang din, still makes :shocked: ..
