Suggestions & Help using the Disco 5 Forums

The security on the LR Disco 5 is no better. Just had mine stolen and the cable was cut just like yours. I spoke to LR customer services who admit there is an issue but there are 2 solutions - pay for spare wheel and tyre cover or buy a security system. I responded that both solutions involve me spending even more money on what I feel is a product problem and lack of improvement from the previous model. Also, I have no recollection of the spare wheel and car tyre cover being offered and equally unaware that LR have a branded spare wheel and tyre security device. The replacement of the wheel, tyre and winch is over £1,000 and I am reluctant so shell out that kind of money whilst there is no improvement in security - spare wheel and tyre cover does not solve the problem and I am sure there is a limit to the number of claims anyway. Once the thieves know it is an easy steal (apparently it will take less than a 1 minute to cut winch and release wheel) then it is going to be a recurring issue as an easy target. I am waiting a response from LR customer services.
I've ordered a spare wheel cover for my Discovery which am getting hopefully 12th September it was £65 plus £16 pp. I hope that will prevent my wheel from being stolen

Hi, no I spoke to the chap who sold us our car and his reaction was "that's life"!!!! Why didn't he forewarn us that this may happen and then we would have put on a security plate, sourced by ourselves probably for £100. As a result after our wheel was nicked we've replaced it with a good second hand spare, new winch because the original was cut and a secure cover plate courtesy of our local garage at a cost of £850. Land Rover wanted £1250. Please let me know if you have any luck with Land Rover if enough of us complain we may achieve something.
