United Kingdom 2014 Freelander 2 TD4 GS Manual Orkney Grey

I wonder if Highways will take them - according to the guys at the control room in South Birmingham they prefer the Mitsi's over the Disco 5's as the LR's don't like long periods idling when holding a closure - screws up the DPF, whereas the Mitsi's don't throw their teddies out!

Then again, the procie tey pay for the D5's is very....competitive! 2000 Xei 1.8 gone

Every time I see these undisguised pictures coming through the more I think “Discovery”

Maybe they will rename D5 to Disco Super Sport Laughing Regards

There’s a lot to be said for that 👍 As a larger clone of the Disco Sport (and thinking of iPhones), it’s either Disco Sport Plus, or Disco Sport Max. The Defender can be a Defender and then the real Discovery 5 could be a development of it. Make it a bit longer, a bit posher, give it a proper tailgate and call it “Discovery 5”, with none of this “New Discovery” nonsense Rolling Eyes 2011 FL2 TD4 XS

Add some vat to that £20000, then add plenty for crew cab, then a healthy dose of £'s for some comforts and possible auto box. Paint of any colour seems to be a cost option too Confused At work

“Last year, Land Rover chief design officer Gerry McGovern said: “We have to stop thinking about function in a durable way. When you're buying into the [Land Rover] brand, you're buying a premium product.””

What a Clown! Evil or Very Mad

It’s a “premium product, yet the £45,000 starting price wont buy either air suspension, or anything more than a 4 cylinder Ingenium. Sad 2011 FL2 TD4 XS
