I have a white dynamic so with all the black satin parts the logical thing was to get my range rover badges changed from the stock matt silver to glossy black. Other than that regular polishing ;)

Where did you get the letters for front and back in glossy black? How hard to change them out? Sounds like it would look perfect on mine with the white vehicle and black top

Got mine here: Powerful UK

Got them to ship it to me in 2 days paid a bit of premium and the lady was very helpful on email.

not too hard...they have a youtube video to show how to do it and i just took their idea and did it a bit differently cos they did not have the template when i got it.

Thank you for the link and information.

Looks like something I could do with a bit of patients. Are you in the USA or UK? If in the USA could you order on line?

I think it would look great front and rear on my Fuji white with the black top.

I just sent them an e-mail about the letters, but I figure Monday is the soonest they will respond.

Well I have been talking to Kirsty with Powerful UK by e-mail. They just updated their web site Powerful UK. The letters front and rear in gloss black are now available as a Kit. The kit includes the front and rear letters, front and rear templates, and the special scrapers to help get the old letters off. The Kit is 70 pounds. Shipping to the USA is 5 pounds. The web site is set up so you can place an order for the USA. If you pay with Paypal it is real easy to place an order. Paypal does the conversion, no fee was charged for it. It came to $121 and some change. I ordered today, and got a tacking number 3 hours later. :cool:

Would love to hear about how the installation of the letters went and see pics of it finished if you would be so kind. I have the same color combo so it should look fantastic.

Looks amazing! Agree that that the dynamics should have come like this from the factory. Congrats on a great looking Evoque and thanks for sharing

I have been using a product called Zaino for about 12 years now. I have used them all and trust me, this is by far the best out there. Here are pics of my Nissan 350Z. I have had it 11 years now and Zaino has protected and made it shine all along. IMG_2594 (Medium).JPG 4.jpg 3.jpg

Thanks. It is highly modified and makes over 600 HP. Just got it out of my garage yesterday from it's long winter's nap! :eek: I hope to use Zaino detailing products on a new Evoque some day!

Thanks! My wife and I have the Fuji White Evoque and the day after I bought it for her, I applied it's first layer of Zaino. The white doesn't "pop" like my Z does but it really does make it shine! The big thing is that it protects like crazy.

I bought the Zaino kit based on the looks of your Z. I have a Fuji White coupe, and I'm glad to hear you say it doesn't "pop" like the Z. I was thinking what did I do wrong?. I clayed it and applied Z2. The protection is the important thing as we head into winter and all that it brings to the midwest.

Deep rich colors like what is on his Z are always going to pop more than the white & silver.
