LATEST RANGE

Standard L322 on left, with converted car on right. In the middle is a forthcoming bodykit...

Latest body conversion to hit our market is the DIGhani, which transforms a Mk3 L322 Range Rover (2002-2012) into a current generation L405 (since 2012) model.

We’ve seen Rangey conversion kits before in the form of the Range Over product, which turned a Mk2 P38S (1994-2002) into a pretty convincing visual interpretation of a later L322.

DIGhani is based in Bradford, West Yorkshire and has yet to set prices although they are said to be competitive. We’ll have more information on this one soon.

IS IT MADE FROM VOLCANOES, THEN?

Design Engineering, the heat protection specialists, can now offer individual tailor-made Titanium Turbo Shield Blankets for T3, T4, T6 and T25/T28 turbines.

DEI Titanium Turbo Shields, with Lava Rock Technology, provide a simple but highly effective means of reducing turbo lag while shielding and protecting engine components, bonnets and painted surfaces from the heat radiated by the turbo. They also add a visual highlight to the engine bay with their very cool carbon-fibre look.

DEI Titanium Turbo Shields are made from pulverised volcanic rock, which is then strained into a fibre material that can withstand direct heat up to 1000 degrees Celsius. More >

CődeClean’s Leather Cleaner (£7 for 500ml) contains a superior blend of soaps and mild solvents to remove a wide range of dirt and contaminants (including blue dye from jeans), leaving a natural finish and barrier that reduces the likelihood of More >
