England 2012 Freelander 2 SD4 Sport Auto Barolo Black
Freelander 2 SD4 Sport LE

I picked this up recently after my previous Fl2 was written off by a careless driver , its a 2012 SD4 Sport LE . I've not had chance to give it a thorough wash yet due to the weather conditions . Up to now I'm very impressed with it and the autobox really suits the car . As soon as the weather improves it will be getting a proper wash followed by a machine polish ready for the Tan Hill meet .

I hope its as good as my last one which I had for two and a half years without any real bother .

It's spent all of it's life at Huntly , and been very well looked after too . Some of the other FL2's I've looked at were a bit on the shabby side and considering my previous FL2 was 8 years old they weren't a patch on that , and they were 13/14 plates , as soon as I saw this one I was smitten .

I think it's the other way around, LR re-used the sport alloys on the dynamic. My sport came out of the factory in 2012 with these alloys fitted.

Maybe not U.K. spec but here in the Netherlands (some) FL2 sports came with these alloys fitted from factory. My car has them, even the spare.

I think this answers the question of wheels.

. I use the FL2 for what it was made for. I spend 6mths/yr on a single road trip adventure.

Netherlands 2012 Freelander 2 TD4 Sport Auto Barolo Black

I found a Dutch brochure here (with some parts hidden):

http://www.eu-import.nl/images/stories/Pre...gevens.pdf

It shows the same alloys bxzx16v has on his FL2 (and are on mine).



There are several pictures on internet from FL2 Sports LE in the U.K. and about 1 out of 3 has these alloys, maybe they were an option in the U.K. as well.

I've been very happy with the Grabbers , I replaced the previous Pirelli Scorpion Verde all seasons as the rears were perishing . A bit poor really as they were date stamped 2014 , the fronts still had 8mm left . My wife previously had Grabber At's on her Fl2 which wore amazingly good but were a bit on the noisy side , the Gt's are a match for the Pirelli's imo quiet and surefooted . My prefered tyre of choice the Pirelli Scorpion Atr's arent available in 19" .

My wife's Tiguan is on its second set of Grabber GT. Very good tyre, the first set lasted 40k.
I ran Grabbet AT2 and AT on my Disco 2 and was very impressed with them although might try the Pirelli ATR on the Freelander when the Goodyears are done (Im on 17"s) Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948
