How we keep prices low and when you need to change the rear window we will be happy to explain to you. Before we go into this, we will first tell you more about the special history of the iconic car brand Land Rover.
The origins of Land Rover
For the absolute start of the Land Rover car brand we have to go back to 1878 when John Kemp Starley
and William Sutton started the Starley & Sutton Co company in England. Like Opel
, the company started producing sewing machines. Later on the company specialised in bicycles. The name Rover was given to one of the first three-wheeled bikes the company developed in 1883. This name was eventually also given to the company, which from then on was known as Rover Company
In 1901, after having previously produced motorcycles, Rover
began developing cars. Although this was not an undivided success, the company continued and especially after the two world wars the cars became very popular. Around this time, 1947, the Land Rover also came into view for the first time. Two of the company's employees developed a strong and powerful vehicle based on Jeep
models, which had to be able to handle all terrain. Later, Range Rover was also added to Land Rover as a subbrand.
Soon Land Rover cars became the company's best-sellers, and until the 70s these cars were one of the reasons why the Rover Company remained in the black. The Rover company was bought up by the Leyland Motor Company
in 1967, where it then went from bad to worse until it was declared bankrupt in the 1980s. Land Rover's parent company was subsequently bought up several times and changed its name countless times. It came into the hands of, among others, the British government. Since 2005 the car brand Rover is (temporarily) inactive, but for Land Rover followed a different path, because this car brand is still very popular.
Land Rover no longer part of Rover since 2000
Due to the success of Land Rover, the German BMW
decided in 1994 to take over the entire Rover Group. During this period, new models were introduced, including the Freelander
and the second generation of Discovery
. In 2000, BMW decided to split the Rover Group. The car brand Land Rover came into the hands of the American Ford
in 2000 for more than 1.8 billion pounds. Meanwhile, developments at Land Rover are continuing at a steady pace in the meantime. Despite the many changes of ownership, Land Rover continues to develop as a manufacturer of quality vehicles that are suitable for driving on all terrains.
In addition, SUVs became increasingly popular on the road around the year 2000. Top athletes and other celebrities are increasingly opting for a large SUV in that period. This is one of the reasons why the four millionth Land Rover will be rolling off the tyre in 2007. Due to the continued success of the car brand, the Indian company Tata Motors acquired Land Rover in 2008. Since then, things have only got better. Sales figures have risen from more than 140,000 units per year in 2009 to more than 430,000 cars in 2016. The cars of the brand are sold almost all over the world.
Land Rover recognizable and reliable
Part of Land Rover's strength comes from the continuity of the models. Over the years relatively few different models have been made that are each very recognizable as typical Land Rover. The cars are also very reliable and strong. Even old versions of the Discovery, for example, can still be seen regularly on, or right next to, the road. It is no coincidence that Land Rovers are also widely used in the army.
Nowadays the Land Rover Discovery 5 and the Land Rover Sport are newly available. In addition, there are several models on the market under the Range Rover subbrand. Previously these models were also for sale:
- Series I
- Series II
- Series III
- Range Rover Classic
- Freelander and Freelander 2

When should I replace the Land Rover rear window?
Unlike your car's windscreen, your Land Rover rear window cannot burst. In the event of an impact, for example due to an accident, the car window will immediately break up into thousands of pieces. The rear window of the car is made of tempered glass. This glass was heated quickly and then cooled down quickly. This makes it safer for passengers in the event of an accident. The small pieces of glass will cause far less damage than would be the case with large pieces of glass.
Because the rear window is completely missing immediately in the event of a window damage, it is necessary to replace it quickly. Otherwise, you run the risk of the following happening:
- Damage to the upholstery due to rain
- The rain can also damage the electronics.
- Theft of the car due to the absence of the car window
- Due to influences of wind and weather it will be a lot less comfortable to ride
Fortunately, the rear window replacement of your Land Rover can be done quickly and at a competitive price by placing an order with us. This is because you can buy here after market rear windows.

As a result, as the owner of a Land Rover, you will have to pay a lot for a new car window. After market vehicle glass does not have a brand logo and can therefore also be sold by other parties. The quality, however, is exactly the same, as the car windows come from the same factory. The price of the rear window replacement for your Land Rover is the only difference, apart from the absence of the brand logo.
