Acrotek Bash Plate

Acrotek Bash Plates - Land Rover Defender

This easy to fit bash plate offers a stylish look but does exactly what the name says. It is constructed in such a way that if you had to take a serious knock it would soften the knock or break at certain points to stop the energy transferred onto your engine or even chassis. Our custom made mild steel bash plates are powder coated for a longer life span and easy cleaning. These bash plates are available in both Black and Silver.

Acrotek Lift Rod

Acrotek Lift Rods - Land Rover Discovery 3, 4 and Range Rover Sport

Would you say no to an extra 2.5 inches...

Acrotek Lift Rods are made from top quality precision rolled steel and coated in black eCoating that is mark resistant and rust proof. Based on the same system as the factory fitted plastic height sensor rods the Acrotek Lift Rods offer you an accurate dependable all round lift. The Lift Rods increase the lift by 2.5 inches in all operating modes without effecting any of the terrain modes.

Your Landy will be 2.5 inches higher in everyday driving mode as well as in off road mode but remain a comfortable drive and will improve off-road performance tremendously.

26000km

Is the Land Rover 26000km Service Interval leaving you stranded?

This year has started off with a bang and that bang being the sound of Land Rover engines all over South Africa. Even though this is a very touchy subject we think that people should hear what Land Rover UK recommends when driving your vehicle. When we heard that you can buy a new Land Rover and only service it every 26000kms/12 months (which ever comes first) our hearts broke for all the people who decided to follow this recommendation. Before we dive any further into this subject Acrotek LR Spares would just like to clarify that this is purely our opinion based on our Land Rover and engine experience.

We get new clients almost everyday requesting a quote for a new, used or reconditioned motor for their Landy that decided to call it quits after this December vacation. When we ask them what is wrong with their current motor as well as the history of the vehicle and the sentence always ends with 'I made sure I had the vehicle serviced every 26000kms or 12 months, which ever came first'. After noticing a massive trend with engines going we decided to look further into it to try find a reason or at a speculation at least.

The guys in the UK have a completely different grasp on Service Intervals based mainly on vehicle use and driving style which makes more sense. So take a look below and let us know what you think...
