Ipanema Sand 2009 FL2 SE 2.2TD

I wanted to capture the work I’ve done on my car in one spot so thought this would be best.

Purchased car: 214,825km 29/5/2021
Fitted with 19” alloys



As of the 14/1/2022 I’ve done 234,049km averaging about 8.0L/100km (35.5mpg)

Work completed so far:
New thermostat - stuck open temp gauge not sitting mid range
Two oil and filter changes
Front and rear discs and pads
Fitted 18” Evoque alloys (anyone want a set of 5 19” alloys?)



Four new shock absorbers - only one still working!!



Replaced the flakey driver’s side rear door lock
Replaced both front dash vents (cracked/broken)
Serviced the Haldex
New power steering fluid
New front transfer case oil
Painted the front grill, side vents and boot handle what I thought was satin but it’s more gloss
Fixed the sluggish drivers electric window
Purchased a roof pod so there’s a bit more storage on trips

I’ll update with more pics and details of some of the work…

Not a common colour in the UK, which is a shame as it suits the car.

Yup, shocks, springs and bushes on my list too, along with giving the sub-frame a good clean and treatment to make sure I don't join the rotten subframe club.

And like you, also waiting for warmer, dryer weather! This season I shall be mostly wondering just how many Land Rovers a man can own before he dies.

Hi,

we had a RRS in Ipanema with Arabica leather and photos Never do it justice its a colour that always looks better in the flesh Cool

Not many peeps think about changing the power steering fluid, good call.

Thumbs Up .
my first ever FL2 and I've kept it longer than most other cars!
