    Hi there everyone, I’m new to this but over the last couple of months or so my sport is showing a few gremlins, firstly my parking sensors have stopped working, I’ve put it in reverse and listened to all the sensors and none are vibrating, also my volume is not working on my radio, but sometimes it will just come on out the blue, and thirdly this is a stab in the dark, but is there anyway to put lane change on my indicators or was it not on the 06 sport? I hope I can get some knowledgeableinformation from my fellow owners.

    Parking sensors won't work whilst handbrake is on. Have someone sit in the car with foot on brake if you haven't already!

    So with handbrake off, listen out for the clicks on each sensor, if ones quiet it's broken, replace all of em cuz you've got to take bumper off as far as I can see.

    But if they're all dead I'd be checking fuses then looking for dodgy wiring.

    Could also try spraying electrical contact cleaner at each sensor from behind bumper. Really spray the granny out of em to clear away any cack that might be built up.

    As it goes, RRS L320 is based on same chassis/suspension/running gear and a lot of the body electrical bits as Discovery 3 L319. So that opens up a lot more expertise on all sorts of forums :)

    @gstuart , @lynall and @Nodge68 are all good sources of advice on here regarding D3s. I've tagged them so they'll see this, as they probably don't spend much time on range rover pages.

    Any pics of her? I like the sport, but not as practical for me as the D3 body wise lol

    It's modern LR, so gremlins are normal. ;)
    Really you need to read the codes.
    Again you need the codes read, and potentially a software update too.

    Yes, lane change indicators can be added, via a custom software modification. There's a device called an IID, made by Gap Diagnostics in Canada. They have made this amazing device that reads codes, updates software and add custom features like lane change indicators, clock on dash and loads more too. The catch is, the IID costs about £500, but it's almost a necessity with a modern LR.

    Thank you for your advice, I’ll try the spray as I’ve had my wife sit inside the car, a few people have said split wire as it vibrates on the body, I’ve had the rest bumper off but not the front.
    There’s a pic of my sport.

    What's the ride like on those wheels? 22's?

    I can recommend Roean land rover in Telford and RK Automotive in Tamworth :)
