Could you give some comments on the cover around the gear selection dial? I believe this could be the first upgrade as soon as I get my DS.

Does it improve the hard plastic feeling? Where to buy?

Thanks!

You can wrap the plastic parts ... I have resisted doing the centre console till all my rattles have been rectified by the dealer

Thanks Paul. I really like the look of the bonnet vents.

Geonic, the center council cover is quite a nice upgrade. Better than the thin plastic previously. This is a cover piece that goes directly onto the existing with adhesive tape. Installation is less than a minute. The color match is good with rest of aluminum parts of the interior. If you have black interior like I do, with all the Matt chrome pieces really give the inside of car a nice upgrade. It looks way better in person when sit in the car than my photo.

Hi Disco,

Do you not get a lot of reflective sunlight from that centre console?

they are plastic, so yes they can be scratched. if that is a concern, do not get the center council piece. everything else is fine. I am really careful of mine, it has not had any scratches yet. speaking of scratches, the glossy black window pillars on the black pack are highly scratchable. I already had mine replaced by dealer once, and they are full of spider swirls again.

Do these after market parts from eBay match exactly the already originally installed OEM chrome parts, or see they a different finish?

Hi Kaikoura,
I realise that LR don't make these add on parts, I was just wondering if the eBay add on parts match the other chrome/silver parts already contained within the DS. My concern would be if they didn't and I purchased these add ons from eBay I would be annoyed if I had effectively two different chrome/silver finishes within the cockpit of the car.
Hope that clarifies.
Thanks,
Richard

They do match
Thanks Disco. Was just hard to tell from photos and eBay if this was the case.

Cheers :D
