    Adaptive Dynamics - does it or doesn't it?

    Hey guys - new to the forum but really appreciate all the great info!

    Quick question - I'm looking at purchasing a 2012 "demonstrator" from a Land Rover dealer in the US (North Carolina). The dealer is confident that the car does NOT have the Adaptive Dynamics option (and the window sticker backs that up), but the terrain response indicator has all 5 icons (including the Dynamic option - see pics) and when driving, the Dynamic mode is selectable (the gauges turn red and the "Dynamic" mode is indicated in the dash). I have understood that the Dynamic mode only exists when the Adaptive Dynamics option is included, so I am now pretty confused... can anyone shed some light? I'm of course hoping the dealer is just wrong and the car in fact has AD...

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, it sure looks (and acts) like my car with MagneRide (but mine is a 2013). Get me the VIN and I'll tell you. (It must be on their site). But it sounds like it must.

    BTW, is it possible he may just be reading sticker wrong? It may not say "Adaptive Dynamics", it may just say "Magnetic Damping System."

    Thanks a lot, scrannel...

    Here's the VIN: SALVT1BG4CH000496

    And I'm attaching the window sticker as well (sorry it's a little fuzzy).

    • This is part of what I got from running the VIN. Red Coup? Beautiful car. Anyway as you can see it has Magnetic Damping according to the LR page. You can go here to sign up and check for yourself: http://topix.landrover.jlrext.com/to...cle/lookupForm If you run your VIN in google you'll see all the ads for it.
