I just ordered my Disco Sport the other day (15/8). Dealer suggested a 4 month delivery date - so fingers crossed prior to xmas.

Dealer mentioned parking pack is no longer being made available as it has issues that have been identified in Europe. I hope our European friends can clarify - no big loss without this option.

Otherwise I am looking forward to owning the LR Disco Sport. :)

Melb-AU,

Congratulations on the arrival of the little one! And the impending arrival of the bigger baby too!

I've got two daughters who will be intent on trashing the back of my DS when it finally arrives. They've had a good go at destroying the rear of my BMW. I pity the poor valet guy when I come to sell it after the DS arrives! Because of this I've had to opt for black leather. Wished I had the balls to go for Ebony!

So what issues should I look out for the first few months - to make sure they get fixed by JLR AU. Items were they have been recognised in the EU/USA/CAN but maybe not in AU? Anything?
I am hoping for a trouble free experience as LR are seen as an upmarket product here. :)

Hi

Just to let you know. Think you'll be lucky to see your car before the New Year. We are also in Melbourne and ordered our car in May - original delivery provided was for the end of September with a build date of July. This week we've been informed that the vehicle is now not going to arrive until near the end of November.

As many have said before, a nice car let down by Land Rover's poor customer service. The dealer has been good and are now following up to see what the issue is.

Cheers

Hi,

I placed my order end of June, and build date was mid August. Dealer just told me that the car is on the boat and on it's way down here. Scheduled delivery is mid nov.

Hey Yongling - did the dealer give you a specific build date yet? You can see from my sig I was given a date (already built) & confirmation it was ready to ship.

With a build date of Aug 14, do you know if this is a MY15 or MY16 spec ?

Anyone would like to track the delivery of the car can use the following website and your VIN number on Cargo Id field.

https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/ocean.do?method=getDefaultOceanQuickSearchPage

It will tell you the arrival date between ports.

Also, TOPIx gives you all the details about your car (features, build date, outstanding fixes, activity stream...). Register (free) and put in your VIN number.

Thx DecemberHeat - I just pinged my dealer rep to ask if they have the VIN yet..... fingers crossed :cool:

Not entirely sure, as my build date was 20-Aug and it was loaded onto vessel on 13-Sept.

Since yours build 17-Sept and might be getting into vessel within a week or two.

Ok seems fair.
Good to see the build details on ToPix match dealer build sheet.
Interesting to see options not specified get listed as "Less".

RETURNED TO SHIPPER SOUTHAMPTON 22-09-2015 13:35:00

LOADED ON VESSEL SOUTHAMPTON 30-09-2015 14:45:00
