forget about the exterior what about copying the terrain icons exactly? I like how land rover sues people over using stuff that might confuse the end user but then lets ford use the exact icons etc?

Well Ford owned Land Rover so they can use those icons.

Looks like the RR got the Plasti Dip treatment.

I think the new RR looks like a ford exploder... Too metrosexual for me... Not, that there is anything wrong with that. :-)

It's probably Ford's icons.

The Autobiography edition was originally an anything-goes version. First made available to UK market in 1994 you could have it in any color combination you wanted. Beluga Black with red 5 spokes and Westminster leather? Yup! White with Ardennes green wheels and Sable leather? Yup. It came with a special sticker that appeared on the tailgate and on the dash wood.
IDK if that philosophy remains true today. I think the Autobiography is just an appearance package, if I am not mistaken. Clearly if you want it any particular way, they will make it happen if you are willing to pay.

Yup, the "Autobiography" is more or less just a package now... And honestly overpriced if you ask me. We also learned this week that the naturally aspirated V8 will no longer power the base model Range Rovers. They're moving to a supercharged V6, and V8 is only available in the higher end "Supercharged" and "Autobiography" stamped models...

Emission wars... Pretty soon, all vehicles will have to get 40mpg or more to be allowed on the road.

He didn't want them reapplied... The originals are in a ziplock in the glove compartment. Money is no object for the owner... He bought three of our '13s
