After picking up my "new" 95 County LWB in Salt Lake and driving it back to Omaha, I decided it best to invest in a major service. Even though she ("Randi") has only 77K miles on her, I decided to go with the 90K service to really get off on the right foot.

Instead of going to the LR dealer, I decided to try a reputable independent European auto specialist. Here is my question: Keeping in mind he is accomplishing all the services required by the service manual, and he is using genuine RR parts, does $780 sound reasonable to you?

That is dead on! The 2 local Land Rover shops I spoke to wanted $800.. and mine actually came out to $900 due to some extra items that were needed.

So $780 is right in line. It's a good idea to at least have an independent shop look it over and give you a "post buying inspection."

not bad!

I had my 60K service done a month ago, didn't skip a thing and it was $768. It was also done by my local Euro service center.:buttrock:

60K service at Land Rover dealer in the uk was £1100 sterling,due to oil being sold in litres not bulk,and the EAS compressor being changed because the rear was lower than the front.I think they saw the previous owner coming ????

What is done at 90,000?
The big thing is the replacing of all the rubber parts in the engine compartment, along with some other minor bits & pieces (as well as all the normal service stuff).

Best insurance policy there is.

What is done at 90K?????????

Okie - In response, according to my 95LWB original owners manual and service chart:

Interior: check seat belts, operation of all lights, idiot lights etc, wipers, handbrake, depressurize EAS, renew compressor & intake filter - repressurize

Exterior: renew fuel filter, check all lights and tires, lub everything

Under Hood: check cooling system, lub distributor spindle, new spark plugs, new air cleanrer, renew antifreeze, clean plenum, renew brake fluid, adjust ignition timing, check radiator

Under Vehicle: renew oil & filter, renew gearbox oil, renew tranny oil & filter, renew front & rear axle oil, renew swivel pin housing, lube prop shaft, check all brake lines etc, tighten steering, check engine mounts - replace as needed, check speed sensor

That is all except for the usual inspections.

And have fun!!!!!

I hear ya Michael.... but you're 45 minutes away and this Jag/Rover shop is 5 minutes from me.. I just didn't have the time to spend all day in Livermore.. I dropped it off here and jogged home..

I would rather let you work on it, but time and distance constraints might not always allow that.

It is not much less than you would have paid at LR
