No, they own the empty lot at the end of my street and have but nothing but u cooperative, antagonistic and purposefully obnoxious to the neighbors. They've cost all of us untold Hours, angst and stress. Our entire neighborhood has sworn not to buy from any rosenthal franchise.

Oh man - and I just historically hated them for my experience with their sales practices and loan rates. Sworn them off too.

if it is his truck... think about this: the guy who OWNS the franchise land rover dealership has an aftermarket company restore a land rover..... not his service shop that he owns.

this should tell everyone to stop using the franchise lr dealership for inspections and servicing. go out and find an independent rover guy near you.

more power to him having ECR do it.

Those guys don't even know really what a Defender is. They tried telling me there was a limited production run of a few hundred in the 80's, and then asked me if mine was from the 1970's.

That's about right. LR in Alexandria told the me the Red '94 I was test driving a few years back was only one of a handful in the US. It was extremely "rare."

2x. For starters, I never go to a dealer, but was in a bind needing a fuel filter a few weeks back. Land Rover Chantilly is 5 minutes from the office, stuck my head in, and the parts department didn't have much of a clue on where to start. No biggie, keep servicing the new stuff where people are inclined to stroke a $1,500 check for $250 worth of work and walk out happy if provided a 50 cent cup of java with a smile.

Which shop specifically? I haven't been thrilled with the Chantilly one after one visit.

Tommy in service at the Tysons location is a good guy...he races at Summit Point and does his own wrenching on his car (currently rebuilding a blown motor on his race VW). He'll take good care of you....IF you have to go to the dealer.

Well, I plan on taking the LR4 to the dealer at least until the warranty runs out.

Franchise dealers sucks. I don't care what brand. There are handful of people I have dealt with that are knowledgeable and give a shit.. most of the others aren't worth a dam.

94 Red Fastback with Thule rack on the TV Show City Confidential (Circa 1998) about the Mormon Religion (Salt Lake City) went past the cameras at 22 minutes into the show. Had to back it up and watch it go by a few times.

This afternoon about 1:00 I saw a white D-90 going south on I-95 in Rhode Island riding on a yellow trailer behind a red pickup.

Sandman, my wife saw a white SW getting off 78 in Clinton a couple times in the last few weeks during her drive home, guessing it was you.

Conniston Green SW on Passyunk ave in Philly on Thursday night. I started wandering toward it to get the badge number and see if it was a 95 or 97 and the girl pulled me away and send the place is this way.

Another Yellow ST on Haverford Road near Haverford College earlier in the week.
