    Hello Fellow Land Rover-ists...

    My name is Lafe, and yes, I am from the Great State of Illinois. I recently purchased a 2006 Land Rover Range Rover HSE. First Rover I have ever owned. I always wanted one, and now I have one. I have long been a Jaguar owner, with the purchase of several under my belt.

    Thank you for having me, and I hope not to become one of those people that keep asking the same questions over and over, without checking out previous threads. If I do become one of these people, please send me a quick note. Thanks in advance.

    Lafe

    The first four pictures are of when I bought it. I purchased it Monday (7/16/2018). When I bought it, someone had spray painted the wheels with black spray bomb. Which looked completely stupid, at least in my opinion it did. I decided that I was going to get that paint off and get it back to original. The 5th picture at the bottom is what it looks like after I took the paint off.

    Nice looking Rover. And why would anyone paint the wheels.... if anything, get them powder coated.
