Re: Hello from Surrey

Hi Mike, I am in Camberley and I ordered the car from Basingstoke dealership (Harwoods) as they came up with the biggest discount on one of those car broker/discount sites. How are you finding yours so far? Yours should like a great colour combo. All OK so far - but I must confess I haven't been ab...

Re: Hello from Surrey

Sounds good H4SH

did you also buy from a Surrey dealer ?
There are a few around & on the borders to choose from.

Just picked my HSE in Silicon Silver from Guy Salmon in Thames Ditton this week.

Re: New DS arrived - should I wait for showroom handover ?

Hi all

just collected car today - there was a small delay because my trade-in had a sulk & broke down last week - so waited for that to be fixed.

All good so far with DS - panel gaps seem OK all round & no strange noises.

Will upload photos later -

Re: New DS arrived - should I wait for showroom handover ?

Gave in to temptation & had a look - but nothing to see !
Car must be inside - which I think I'm happy about

Re: New DS arrived - should I wait for showroom handover ?

Just heard from dealer, handover is tomorrow :-) I have 90 minutes with the Sales guy to go over controls etc & complete the finance paperwork. I have avoided temptation so far - just waiting for tomorrow now. I think there's a few threads on the handover & what to look for , any additional suggest...

New DS arrived - should I wait for showroom handover ?

Hi all My new DS arrives officially later this week - but I've just had an email from LR to register for the Incontrol Remote App. After doing that - I now see my car is in the Guy Salmon compound. Now, my route home takes me within 100m of there - so I have a decision to make. Do I sneak a quick pr...

Re: New engines for 18MY. Finally Sport means Sport!

New pokey engines confirmed for the DS. http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-news/first-official-pictures/land-rover/land-rover-discovery-sport-range-rover-evoque-2018-model-year-engine-specs/ There's also a new level of spec, SE Dynamic for the Evoque which I would bet comes in under £40K including ty...

Re: EVOKE

They only cost half of what a real Evoque costs. These can't be sold on the European market, because they don't even get one Euro NCAP star :-) The makers would also likely get sued in a European court for either breach of various trade marks or design copyright . I believe JLR weren't successful i...
