Re: Taking delivery

Just make sure all the infotainment system works ok. There are plenty of posts on here and the other D5 website to indicate where the problem areas are. It's still a great car had mine over a year now and still enjoying it.

Re: Would your buy a Discovery 5?

Hi Phaeton sounds like you have been fortunate and got a good one.🤣🤣

Re: 1 year old HSE 3.0L - but now a new 3.0?

Possibly negotiate some interim oil changes. Obviously don't know your driving style but doesn't seem to make much difference as far as I can tell most on here require a oil change around 6k. Nothing wrong with the engine other than that.
