I believe in any type of preventative maintenance you can do to help prevent problems down the road, and peace of mind.

I agree with answer #1. My question would be ............WHY? How many miles on engine and has it been maintained well? Is oil pressure a problem?.......Just curious........Don't know much about Land Rovers.......

Idont have any service records but the car is immaculate.No issues with oil pressure to date but its vin number is consistant with the manufacturers warning about these oil pumps. If they fail I'll need to replace the whole engine.because it usually destroys the camshaft in the process. 75,800 miles

#1s 'peace of mind' sounds good to me then! Enjoy your LR.
