    Hi my first post here, just bought a Freelander 1 TD4 5 door today for my wife and it's missing the O/S/F outer door rub strip trim. The guy Iv bought it off said that he did source a replacement but when it arrived it was a hideous rubber strip. I was wondering if any one on here would know where I could get my hands on a genuine Land Rover replacement?

    Do you need the whole set or just part of the set? The individual parts may be available still (they were for a 3 door when I looked earlier in the year (check albrit.de for part numbers under the accessories section) - fortunately I saw a genuine set brand new turn up on eBay so got those. Buying brand new individually was quite pricy. So started to consider secondhand or using some dental floss and a hairdryer (which we all have in the glovebox of course ;-) ), and carefully removing some off one that was being broken. The replacement doublesided tape is readily available on eBay if you go that route.

    If it's no longer available separately, it's going to be a case of keep looking on eBay, or see if you can get something half decent from a breakers

    There's one available on eBay but it's in Romania and with the shipping will cost about 50 quid, does this seem like a reasonable price to pay for a part that's hard to come by ?

    £50 ridiculous for one part. The whole kit is available for around £60.
    Try these people ;)

    Thanks for the heads up Nodge, was looking for a set for my 5 door - looking at you link I located BFA 7002 (STC7913BM) at just under 60 squids inc vat.
    Cannot go wrong at that price !

    The problem with that BM part from Rimmers is that it's not genuine. I ordered one from them for my 3 door. It turned up and seems basically like rubber cable covering for floors to stop trips. With a bit milled out for the door recess. And a rounded bit poorly glued on for the end pieces. I was very disappointed with the look and quality. Which is why I held off from using them, and managed to eventually find a genuine kit for £40 on eBay brand new. ( I think there is another post about how poor the Bearmach version is on here somewhere).

    When the original parts were available they were about £30 each. Making the cost of a full genuine kit look good value.

    Should you buy it? If the cosmetics are important to you, then you'll have to do some hunting around or be patient for a genuine part/kit to come up. If not, it's a breakers job, which I'm sure could not charge too much, and you'll just have to get the tape to reapply it onto your door. If it were me, I think I'd be looking at that option to get a part to match the rest of the rubbing strips.

    My car has the original dealer-fit body kit fitted. It's sooooo bad it is almost good in a strange Retroride kind of way. I am going to keep them on I think (but wouldn't be sad if they fell off).

    The one big cosmetic problem is that it makes the car look under-wheeled on standard 16" alloys and tyres. Hmm. I find myself really fancying fitting modular steelie wheels now!

    Iv managed to get the pice down a bit and just bitten the bullet and ordered the genuine Land Rover part i found on eBay from Romania. I don't mind spending the money to make it right. Now to decide if I should blank the EGR off or not ? Opinions welcome?
