You can swap wheels without any problems and you’ll have no bother at all swapping your 20” Autobiography ones for a set of anything else. Personally, I’d keep them. We have 20”'s on our Dynamic and e...

I thought the PTC heater was only to provide some warmth until the engine water temperature got hot enough to chuck out heat via the heater. Are you saying they don’t use hot water from the engine to ...

Frightening! Glad you’re relatively okay and that all the safety gear did it’s job. The car can be replaced, people can’t.

I fitted a standard set on my 2012 model - you must get Dynamic ones though as the non-Dynamic ones are different. Look good but don’t really do anything though! [img]https://s15.postimg.cc/c9h9rcu3v...

It’s pretty standard on most modern LR's. There are a lot of electrically dependent systems on them that give out all sorts of faults with a low battery. Your van probably doesn’t have as much.
