Good to hear I clearly chose the right colour ���� To answer above, it is pretty high spec, TDV6 HSE Lux with a few extra toys I believe. My son specked it on the configuration, came to an eye watering £71k ��
It's a fantastic car, but way too big for what we need as a family, so will go smaller next time I think. Velar or F-Pace seems about right size.
Not the Disco-sport then? Interested to hear the reasoning behind that if you don't mind giving some insight?

Did you manage to buy before the 1 April ( significant for More than one reason perhaps!) new VED increase deadline? I calculated that it would have cost me £1500 more over 6 years if I bought after this date!!!

Good looking car. Certainly going to have your work cut out getting around the big beast.

Has anyone else noticed, from the side they look quite similar to a Saab 95 estate?

Nice car buddy and a great colour! My friends dad always gets a new disco but when this came out he found the rear plate hideous so opted for an autograph Range Rover instead. I have to agree though. The rest of the car looks awesome but what were the designers thinking with that not offset and square but not central plate?

To be fair, what Discovery ever had a straight number plate. They were always to the left. They kept it traditional

Nice car but my OCD could not cope with the rear door and the numberplate location. I know the swage line is a nod to the window line of previous generation Discoverys but it looks wrong

To answer above, I put a layer of SRP on.

Yeah, the number plate at the back, certainly been quite controversial, but I think we have it worst in the UK with a long yellow plate. The Euro White plates and the shorter US plates definitely look better on the disco.
