Re: Looking to buy a Disco for first time

The other issue with the 290 is that it was only available in HSE Dynamic Lux trim, so it's very expensive (and rare) compared to a 240 HSE (most seem to be HSE or HSE Lux). It's also been dropped from the UK market in the DS2 I guess as the PHEV has the same power output (it is available elsewhere ...

Download the brochure from the LR website, shows the spec of the various trim levels.

Re: Catalytic Converter Protector device

I think it's generally specific models of cars get targeted, Toyotas spring to mind. Have never heard of the DS being targeted (in fact any LR) unlike the spare wheel fiasco on the big Discoveries. Even though the DS is their best seller, I'm not sure Land Rover's market presence can equate to the ...

2.0 D240 is a very good engine! I love mine. It gets to speed quick and average MPG on a run is 42-44. I do always fill it with super diesel from costco though!
I think the OP means the 180 2.0, as obviously there's a performance differential between the 190 2.2 and the 240 2.0.

Re: Catalytic Converter Protector device

Not heard of it happening to a DS, but certainly to other (generally older?) cars. Are there devices available to do this then?

Re: Is a lift kit worth it? Or should I just do tyres?

Sorry I meant 235/65 r17. Not 245s. But ideally I would want 255/65 r17s. IF they will fit. So be great if anyone has an advice. Cheers :) To keep the rolling radius and hence speedo correct, for every 20mm increase in tyre width you need to drop 5% in sidewall height. You also need to consider the...

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist.

I guess I don't really expect it and would probably be a bit hacked off for the car to be braking down hills and wasting that free energy (or wasting the energy invested getting up the hill!) Depends on where. We have a steep hill heading into the city with a camera about 2/3rds of the way down. It...

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist.

I suspect the LDW and LKA actually use exactly the same hardware - the screen mounted camera and electric power steering mechanism. Given all the cars have park assist, we know that they can 'self steer' (and LDW uses the same mechanism to rattle the steering anyway) so I can only conclude that the...

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist.

I don’t think the LKA uses the radar of the ACC system it will use the cameras as per LDW as after all, the radar can’t ‘see’ the lane markings.
