I ve been used to a vw passat daily driver which ive worn out, need to tow a trailer now so here we go.....it cost a small fortune but its like new,i guess its previously been a dolly trolly Rolling Eyes full LR history, 70k. Just learnt how it all works.I love it Very Happy

Very nice indeed... Enjoy Thumbs Up

I think a rear spoiler would finish the back off nicely.

Thankyou for the welcome 😉..
..not sure about the spoiler but i have been looking at the stainless steel rear bumper scuff plate as im in and out of the boot all the time.
Maybe a satnav update from the current 2014 version to 2020?Would appreciate advice on this though as i may be better off with my tomtom?

Rear spoiler would definitely finish the back off.
Unique Audio in Exeter do a screen replacement that gives you all the apps you’d ever want so you can use google maps or the Tom Tom app.

Looks nice but I would remove the steps you really don’t need them on the FL2 & they look awful.
