So not to temp fate from VDS & other RAV4 owners I thought I’d just help them with the true meaning of HmmmUK’s Brilliant Humour 😂
Correct interpretation below

Picture No1, Obviously LR Discovery Sport = Good looking thoroughbred from a classy source & nothing like the rest of field as shown in picture No2 🤣

Incorrect interpretation! Picture No1, RAV4 beautiful fine piece of engineering & honed to perfection (which it is) Picture No2, Yes I’m ugly but it’s what’s inside that counts,

If only we could get those two to mate 🙏
And have an affair with a few others ?

As I said many moons ago the problem with the DS was it was built by the wrong people.
I chose it for purpose certainly not its looks - a house brick on wheels.

A “mating” of a few companies would produce a truly awesome SUV

Interests thoughts would be :
1. Looks
2. Reliability
3. Capability
4 Safety


So I guess I’d say something like

1 Jaguar Looks
2. Honda reliability
3 Defender capability
4 Volvo Safety


What a machine eh? 😂😂👌

Hooray! JLR has built a car that can leave the factory. Boo! No-one can order it.
Hope they've got a big car park somewhere. :lol:

The reviews are coming out pretty positive across the board for the DS & Evoque. Also the mention of the forthcoming 'eco' model with smaller wheels and fewer add ons.

An Evoke p300e has been collected by a customer this morning (as recorded on the Evoke Users Forum). He said he loves it - and more information to appear soon.
Land Rover owner since a Defender 90 in the 1980s. Series of Discoverys, until downsizing to Discovery Sport in 2015. Disco Sport R-Dynamic S p300e (PHEV) arrived late Oct 2020. Solid Fuji white with very few extras (e.g. powered tailgate).

All these articles show is that the motoring press repeats exactly what it's told if it thinks that it will keep the freebies coming.
