Re: New DS? Dilemma re oil dilution etc

The big question is how long you usually keep your new car, if it is only 3 or 4 years the oil dilution is not really going to be an issue as any issues will be covered by the warranty/a 12 months extended warranty. As far as buying a petrol DS, do LR actually sell any in the UK, as I've never seen ...

Re: BMW-JLR EV Partnership

Hopefully this is a nail in the coffin for any rumoured tie up with Peugeot/Opel as I never fancied the idea of driving around in a Vauxhall Discovery!

The known problem only affects diesels according to N128 and LTB01263. Bad batch sounds moody. Intermittent/random blockage of spray nozzles? It's another systemic problem for sure.
Blimey 2019 2.0 Disco's and also Veler's affected, I'd hoped LR would have fix the problems by now.

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

My theory is it's lubrication problem they couldn't fix until, fingers crossed, they brought out the updated cars, the fact the Mk2 DS followed the Mk2 Evoque into production so quickly does make me wonder if that was the case. The fact some cars are having two set of shafts go suggests it wasn't ju...

Re: New model year now on web site

Checked the prices now and it seems the price for the D180 Evoque is wrong on the "build your car" section of the LR website, it seems they now start at £38K+, which seems a big jump from the D150 models. It looks like you have to pay £3K for all the hybrid tech which comes with the D180 engine ran...

Re: New model year now on web site

Mild hybrids (also known as battery-assisted hybrid vehicles) are generally internal combustion engines equipped with an electric machine (one motor/generator in a parallel hybrid configuration) allowing the engine to be turned off whenever the car is coasting, braking, or stopped, yet restart quic...

Re: New model year now on web site

I will check the prices again later but if those figures are correct then it's a massive increase over the similar spec outgoing SE models, even before the run off deals. The big issue with the DS compared to the Evoque is deprecation, I'd never pay more for a similar spec DS even if it suits my own...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

That must have been an hell of a large batch of shafts they had stored then as my car is at least a year old than yours being first reg in June 2017. I can take them having a months supply of shafts but no longer. You have to wonder when these problems will finally stop, have they even overcome it i...

Re: New model year now on web site

Depends if you ignore the R-Dynamic and treat the new SE as the old HSE which it roughly appears to be. I disagree, just done a HSE quote and to get what I’ve got on my HSE lux I had to add lots of extras and I still don’t have everything I have on my car. List price is £10k more than I paid for th...
