Re: HIGH SPEC HSE LUXURY

I see it's in your signature, but you may want to clarify that this is a D180. It's 9-speed BTW - the 8-speed is the longitudinal 'box.

Re: MY19 Landmark COLLECTED!!

Those scratches are odd! I'd ask the dealer to have a really good look at that seat belt if someone's been waving blades around near it.

Re: Topping up AdBlue with 10l bottles

The 10L Halfords bottles are really easy if you can manage to lift it onto the engine cover in the first place. Screw the flexi hose on to the bottle, remove the car's cap, lift the bottle onto the engine cover, finger or thumb over the flexi hose while you stick it in the receptacle and you can sta...

Re: Facelifted Discovery Sport in Summer?

plastics throughout will be of a higher perceived quality than before. Why would anyone in their right mind want old-fashioned "actual" quality when modern, higher perceived quality is available for everyone, even royalty ? I take your humorous point, but the "actual quality" of the plastic relates...

Re: Discolution Sport available in India

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ It's where they are testing the "next-gen vehicle Horn system", in suitable conditions. You joke, but I worked on the Ford Ikon project many years ago. Original plan was to use the carryover European horn, but they burnt out after a few weeks use. A quick bit of data collection showed that the ...

Re: Can you really off-road a D180 DS?

If you're worried about torque, note that both engines have more torque than both the 3.9L V8 in old Range Rovers and the Defender Td5 engine, and no-one would argue that you can't off-road in those.

The D180 has more power and torque than a Porsche 924 turbo.

I won't hold my breath though, given the hysterical reaction to this thread. :roll:
By "hysterical reaction", you mean some people disagreed with you? :roll:

Re: Drive .. Park .. EPB .. help :-)

Leave in D, hold on footbrake if stopping briefly; put in N with EPB if stopping for longer periods. You will use more fuel stationary in D (assuming stop-start doesn't kick in) and dazzle following traffic, but you won't do any harm. I'd avoid P in traffic: not only is it more hassle and may blink ...

Re: Halogen lights replacement advice

The tinted H15 bulbs shift the colour away from yellow because they filter out some proportion of the green and red wavelength light produced by standard halogens - it's exactly what Osram does with the Cool Ice White version of the 64176. They state clearly in the bulb's technical documentation th...
