Re: Land Rover "delivers without dilution"

All I intended here was a light-hearted poke at a company with such obvious internal differences that senior executives (who really should know better) have now taken to making thinly-veiled attacks on each other in full public view. I'm sorry this has caused offence in some quarters but these peopl...

...just trolling now...

Absolutely not, just a harmless, ironic piece of well-aimed satire. "Delivers without dilution"? Who in their right mind would ignore that? :lol:

DS Sales Holding The Fort for older LR Models

The November sales breakdown for Europe* has the DS almost holding its own with total sales down just 2% against year-on-year falls of -15% for the Range Rover and -26% for the big Sport. Just over a thousand D5's were sold in the month but this performance was eclipsed by the Velar which sold twice...

Re: SERVICE POLL - UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS

I think the problem with name and shame is that frequently poor service is not symptomatic of a general problem at a particular dealership. The undeniably higher than average number of defects in the product and the lack of information from JLR often leaves individuals in a quandary and I suspect th...

Re: 18 Days From Delivery; Thoughts So Far

... never consider a petrol in such a car as it'd be even worse mpg. Wait until you've tried a PHEV or a "straight" hybrid! The Toyota 2.5 L petrol weighs 2,000 kg and has averaged 43.2 mpg during its first 1,300 miles. Around town where it spends a larger proportion of the time on electric (240V b...

Re: Sluggish Auto Gearbox

I filled up with BP UI ltimate by mistake today. I have to say the car did feel more perky. The gearbox still tried to kill me though. Put my foot down on a roundabout to accelerate. Nothing happened though so I came off to the throttle. Meanwhile things woke up and decided to drop down a gear and ...

Re: AdBlue/DEF Range Thread

Mine is still on factory install (or PDI, depending on your viewpoint), and despite 11,865 miles, is still showing 2088 miles to refill. Which I think is pretty good....particularly as the Oil Service countdown timer seems to quadruple that! What do you mean about the oil service countdown? When th...
