As previewed at the beginning of the week, today I've collected my new Utility Station Wagon. It's a 2013 model that's covered just over 37k miles and has a full LR service history. I'm very excited Mr. Green

As shown, it's got the full complement of chequer plate and light guards that appear to have been fitted from new. It's also got some very shiny Sawtooth alloys but I don't know when it acquired them as they look like new. The one thing that's definitely new is the tyres, Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's, although the spare doesn't match which I'll sort out in due course.

Inside, it has a full height dog guard, a Mantec guard to the rear door glass and the upgraded stereo with the amp on the back of the cubby box. Oh, and a full set of rubber mats.

There are a couple of negatives that I need to address: it's fitted with a smaller steering wheel - a leather clad Moto Lita - and seat risers, neither of which I'm keen on.

Beyond all of that, there's still plenty of scope for a few additions to make it my own. There's an amber warning for snow in my area for tomorrow so it seems appropriate that the first is a snow cowl:

There's more to do but they'll have to wait until after the snow Very Happy Darren

Looks great Thumbs Up

You can log on to Land Rover Topix (if you use the vehicle Vin Number) and see if it had Sawtooths as factory fit.

Mine did, but they got swapped for Boost Alloys by the last owner Sad

I like the Sawtooths a lot.

Thanks for that; just had a look. Unfortunately, whilst it says fitted with EH2 alloys, I can't find what that actually means Rolling Eyes Darren

Well, it's got a radio, which is nice Laughing The back end, essentially being a van, is quite noisy and a prime candidate for some sound proofing, which is great as I've already practiced that on the 90. Darren
