Re: Tyre Rotation and TPMS

tpms discovery sportpdf.pdfI think you should take this and wave it under the nose of the "technician", the service manager and the Dealer Principal..........and then go to Pentland Land Rover Elgin (used to be Frank Ogg). It's a bit of a trek from Aberdeen but I can't fault them so far - ask to sp...

Re: Tyre Rotation and TPMS

Just had a wheel refurbished last week, wanted the new wheel on the opposite side and at the rear of the DS, but wanted to keep the tyres in the same place, therefore NSF to OSR. Wheel and TPMS sensor was moved. System sorted itself out in less than 50 meters of driving ! i.e. you could not have mov...

Re: Why should the DS carry a spare wheel ?

Well yes, where do you think it's gonna go? Apologies for the pun.... The rear floor pan is different for the full size wheel as it sits in a wheel well inside the car, not slung under as per the space saver and therefore needs the space taken up by the third row seats to keep the floor at the same...

Re: Why should the DS carry a spare wheel ?

Ah, I see JLR has read my comments, the latest updated configurator offers an option for a spare wheel in the 290 petrol. Too late for me !! Except you have to get rid of the third row of seats to have a full sized spare wheel Well yes, where do you think it's gonna go? Apologies for the pun.... Th...

Re: Most unreliable car you've owned?

After a life of mainly owning Fiat's and Alfa Romeo's.....the worst was a stupidly high spec VW Touran closely followed by the DS! The VW was a "grudge" purchase, purchased almost new, features wise, it was fab, needed a 5+2 and worked really well in that sense - but had many faults, the most awful ...

Re: Disappointing dealer

Totally right thing to do - we tried the 290 with a real view to purchase, but were not blown away by the difference between what we have now compared to what we have now - genuinely disappointed and was expecting more. If we did not already have a DS the 290 is the one we would be purchasing today.

Re: DS, XC60 or F Pace

Was a bit pointless and stupid, but most of what any of the TG or Grand Tour do is..... but it was funny, and the unscientific outcome was a surprise, they literally were hooligans in the cars - I'm sure that it will end up on YouTube as you may not be able to view iPlayer in Germany

Re: DS, XC60 or F Pace

Bit of a crap test though - for some reason they didn't seem to want the Velar to win. Totally crap test. The Velar was nearly twice the price of the Alfa. For that Velar money you could (pre)order a Stelvio Quadrofoglio (or however you spell it!) and have one monster of a car :twisted: :twisted: ....
