The current Range Rover will enjoy its 10th anniversary in 2012 and Land Rover is giving the model a handful of special editions for the UK market.

The three special editions include the TDV8 Westminster, the TDV8 Autobiography, and the Supercharged Autobiography.
I have developed a keen interest in keeping the oil level right where it should be on all of my cars.
