That's a really sad story. Very sorry. Maybe you can write-off the $5K as a loss or something? Not sure keeping this car is worth all the pain-and-suffering. At least not 5K worth.

Are you buying one off the lot? If so, just get one with them already installed. Although it's an option, I have never seen a GL without them, so I'm assuming most dealerships order with them.

The Dual-Paned GL Front Side Glass Mystery!

Do you have it or do you not?

That’s the big question.

And based on my research, no one, at least in the US, has it. I want to be proved wrong!

So that’s the big question. And one...

22s are pretty loud and hard. Test drove a few new Range Rovers with 22s prior to getting the GL and the ride was definitely compromised. But they looked damned good!

Nothing you can do. Either you cancel or order. And negotiate new terms. The dealer unfortunately has the upper hand here. And you didn't get scammed, you got screwed.

Worse case is you could order them from Europe and sell the ones that come with what you purchase in the US. Or keep the original set as winter wheels.
