New Land Rover Heritage parts division

This is interesting. Maybe those NLA parts won't be NLA forever...

It looks like they will be remanufacturing obsolete parts. They'll probably put up a new website, like the one for Jaguar Heritage.

"LR Heritage plans to offer genuine parts for Land Rovers and Range Rovers that have been out of production for more than a decade."

Like this one?
http://landroverclassicparts.com/

Unfortunately those 2 sites do not appear to be owned by the same people.

I wonder if it will be like Mercedes Benz classic parts-- in theory you can get any part for any car they ever made, but it comes at a cost.

Land Rover says they won't be supplying parts for NAS Defenders.

"Land Rover says it will have parts available for not-sold-in-the-U.S. Defenders built in the last 15 years. If you're after parts for a Defender older than that, you'll be able to consult the Heritage division."

Wait... Does LR left hand know what it's right is doing? Let me get this straight - LR likes to promote that 70% of LR's made since 1948 are still on the road but LRNA motherf**ked a bunch of people trying to get 25 year old rigs in?So say someone wants to get authentic LR Heritage parts in from the UK is that going to be impossible too? Maybe I am missing something.

"It is estimated that 70 percent of all Land Rovers manufactured since 1948 are still in existence, so there is a large and very passionate owner base to support through Land Rover Heritage."

Well, WE are a passionate owner base, but think of all the old rovers around the world that are running on gum and bailing wire—whose owners probably don't care if their rover is original, they just want their mode of transportation to keep working. That owner base is not going to be buying a part that costs more than they make in a month or two...

I like where they are going with this. I think they definitely have a solid market in Europe, old Series and RRC are popular cars here in Germany. And they seem to have the coin to drop on quality spare parts.

We can hope, but it's definitely a good direction for JLR and signals more factory support to come?

Surprised ZG hasn't chimed in yet. That said, I swear they had a similar announcement a few years ago.

I'm willing to spend a little extra on my trucks, excited that parts will be available.

I've been traveling so I missed it. I don't have any additional info to share, though it would be nice if this went through!

We did at one point purchase a very large amount of RRC parts, some of which we still have and have been NLA for a long time.

Yeah, they tried something they called Land Rover Classic or some such, but I think that was just a way of disguising a bunch of parts being discontinued.
