Re: How much discount have people managed to achive?

Agree about carwow - you do now only tend to get a mediocre level of discount now I think the e-mail idea is a good one, but would take some dedicated time and effort, and maybe the way I'd approach it is to start with a select number of dealers and see what happens, also timed at the end of say H4,...

Re: How much discount have people managed to achive?

Re: How much discount have people managed to achive?

I'm guessing that 23% was on a stock ready to go model? Getting that off something like a 290 dynamic with extra's is going to be tough....but if someone knows where to point me, I'd be ordering at that level of discount. Part of me wants to move away from the DS, but the reliable Jap products don't...

Re: How much discount have people managed to achive?

Would be good to know where these deals have come from - 23% discount! Ahh I remember when the DS was launched - you couldn’t get £500 off !!

Re: Considering a Discovery Sport

It's funny how things turn around... Quite a few years ago, I promised myself I would never buy an Alfa Romeo with my own money (due to poor reliability, accelerated depreciation, poor quality interiors, rust, etc....) . Today, I am more likely to buy an Alfa Romeo than I am another Land Rover. Tha...

Re: InControl App Problem

So ours has just been fixed two days ago, went in as the rear camera failed and I asked them to resolve this issue. Re-installing the app on my iPhone did not fix the problem. Whilst they had the car, a reset of a certain module was carried out. Sadly I've no idea at all what they re-set, but it wor...

Re: Private purchase advice

Some of those estimates sound like trade in values, rather than retail private / dealer values ?

£27k does not sound unreasonable

Re: Extra options on new build

Both are excellent extras to have - however the extra amount on road tax negates the cost benefit of the extra's. So unless they can show a list price of the vehicle below £40k (and the only way they could do that is if the vehicle now had those extras as free, in the list price from LR) then I'd be...

Re: Tata SUV Will Use Fiat Engine

That fiat engine is rock solid and used by a number of manufactures. I’ve driven a number of versions of the multijet - The ingenium does not in the real world perform like the multijet. I’d say that multijet is a lot more responsive, almost often too responsive, and not as relaxed as the ingenium. ...
