Mods - Time for a LR3 Subforum?

There appears to be a high percentage of Defender and/or Series owners that also own a LR3. Probably a higher number than any other make of car.


Any thoughts on creating a LR3 subforum? We already have tons of LR3 specific threads and their frequency continues to grow as these trucks age and exchange hands.


Keep the eyeballs here (more $$, too) instead of folks heading to Dweb and the other LR forums.

Shouldn't be too hard for the mods to create a subforum opt-out feature to appease the haters at bay.

I love the idea... But there's always naysayers.

I understand the want for it, but then you'll have people wanting a Disco subforum, and you don't want us kind of people on here.

Maybe change the name of the series technical to metal dash technical, defender technical to soft dash technical, and add air bag dash technical subforum.

we should do a survey first ... see what sub-forums would be needed .... if we have LR3's ... why not RRCs ... personally I'd like a forum on Ducati 748r's to help me locate one ... but i think thats a bit off topic!

Technically with an LR3 forum they would have a Disco forum...just happens to be the D3.

Maybe just something more broad like "Newer Land Rover Technical Discussions" if one really needs to be added. LR3 is probably too specific especially as more LR4s and RR's and RRS's are making their way into members' garages.

L322, L405 D3, & D4 have nothing in common other than the badge.

Thumbs up

Having a D3 as a DD, I love the idea! Over the years I have learn to trust certain D90 Source board member's technical advice.

For the more modern stuff, aka air sprung, I've utilised topix, iATN, and Autologic forums. Basically, the modern Rovers are still nuts and bolts, just with much more oversight to control the functions that are nut and bolted to the package!
There are a lot of smart folks here which is one of the reasons I occasionally post up looking for advice on the modern stuff, and it's usually after I've run through my other resources.
Then, there are the days where carbs and points ignition are refreshing....

You see us b/c you're on there looking for tech that goes beyond "do these boosts match my galvy?" questions right?


Let us not forget that the Discovery is the reason why the brand still exists...

The line needs to be drawn somewhere or this will soon be the "Land Rover Source."

A "Newer Land Rover Technical Discussions" would be nice as many owners have both and would keep the content more organized... but isn't that was the MISC section is for?
