Congrats on your new rig!
FWIW, here's a link for a Co. here in So Cal that sells reconditioned and take-off Rover wheels. That 19" wheel- '7 double spoke black' goes for $335 reconditioned. In your year, 2012, that same wheel was fished 'silver' as the 19" and 20" 'Black Packs' weren't available until m/y 13. Yours has been nicely 'black-packed' sans the roof rails.

Thanks for the tip. If anyone else sees it, don't bother. "Assuming your wheels are in (A) condition or better, our offer to buy your wheels and caps is $50 each and we would pay for the shipping labels."

Detailing question for you all. For several days now I've been trying to air out the disco of the disgustingly sweet bubble gum smell from whatever cleaner the dealer used to shine this thing up. Anyone have any good tips on either masking that odor or a different cleaning product with an aroma more apropos to Rover?

If you have one, set an ozone machine inside overnight and close all the windows/doors and let it run.

If not, keep all windows/doors open when parked (if you're able to)

I'd also vacuum the carpets. Fragrances bond better to carpet than most other materials. Maybe give the seats a wipe down as well.

I used to detail cars, and never used anything like this. Only smells I had were from the cleaners I used and they weren't strong, and don't last.

Nice thanks for the tip. While I've wiped down the hard surfaces, admittedly I hadn't thought about carpeting under the mats. I'll try that, and keep all the windows open. The baking soda didn't do much...

About 10 sprays of Creed Aventus/Milleseme Imperial with the AC on full blast recirculating it will do the job!

I too changed my rear reflectors. I opted to buy new ones that are smoked black and have built in led lights. I didn’t connect the led lights portion though. I also swapped my rear taillights to the 2014+ model year black one. I didn’t even consider plastidipping them even though I have two new cans sitting in the garage. Great looking rig bro!

Here are the rear reflectors I bought for about $20 on eBay. Great investment in my happiness. Yes, these work fine on the LR4. Install was for both was 60 seconds.

I purchased these smoked black sequential turn signal lights on eBay too. I think they would be a great compliment to your rig since you have the Black Package. I have had mine about 10 months and think they look damn sexy. Install was easy breezy too. They are plug and play with no error code.

Thanks. Yep I knocked out the side markers already! Big change with my red and black. So that had me considering the black tail lights. Do you have a link for what you used?

They’re on! It’s Ridge Grappling time. I got some discounts they had at America’s Tire. The sales guy looked at me all funny when I declined TPMS. Then he questioned if I was certain I could disable it. I said don’t worry about. Just balance ‘em. Now, admittedly this is just a cosmetic review at this stage, but I couldn’t be happier with how they and the compos change the whole demeanor of the truck! Fantastic.
