Spotted mine a while back, but as it's on a PCP and will be going back at 3 years, it's not really my problem. I mentioned it to the dealer when I was in today dropping the car in to fix a rattle in the front passenger door and they just said that it was quite common and usually resulted in a new exhaust. Suits me - I've only got the car for another 11 months max...

Checked mine today as coming up to 3 year service, also noticed seam of exhaust corroding, any one else had this?
Also, after taking to a defender owner this weekend, again coming up to 3 years old, he was having problems with wheels blistering, checked mine and the same is happening to and also the center 'landrover' inserts are rubbing off on the edge, see the white.

The exhaust looks perfectly normal to me - both my Freelanders went that way after approximately 6 months.

The centre caps are only made out of plastic, and are cheap enough to replace if it bothers you that much - speak to Dan at Duckworths for the best price.

If you or your valeter use a pressure washer to clean your wheels with, then the silver paint is likely to flake off the edges - it doesn't bond to plastic as well as it does metal or aluminium.

It's still under warranty so back to the stealers before the end of the month, my Freelanders exhausts never went like this one has.
