DS HSE Black from D4

Post by daviesto » Mon May 14, 2018 4:05 pm

We've owned our 2012 Discovery 4 HSE for just over 3 years, and have loved every minute of it (despite some heart palpitation inducing costs!). The command driving position, ride comfort, practicality and sheer scale are unrivalled. But we found ourselves staring at higher and higher future maintenance costs (£1500 cambelt change next year for example), and having ruled out a new Discovery 5 on the grounds of cost (Range Rover money these days) we have this weekend agreed the purchase of a new DS HSE Black 180 Auto in Byron Blue. We're not going to try and compare the pros and cons of the D4 versus the DS - they are totally different vehicles - but we are looking forward to what is a really smart looking car and hopefully trouble free ownership. Delivery is about 3 weeks time so will post pics in due course!
