Just bought a 2017 HSE

Post by mordred1973 » Mon Sep 24, 2018 9:20 am

Well, regardless of reading some of the stories on here, I jumped in and bought a 13.5 month old Discovery HSE TD6. fingers crossed it turns out to be alright. Car was registered to JLR previously and has the following extras:

Black Pack
Capability Plus Pack
Wade Sensing
Adaptive Headlamps
Technology Plus Pack (think this is surround camera and Head up Display)
Advanced Tow Assist including deployable tow bar
4 zone climate
Park Heater
Cooler in front armrest
Intelligent Seat Fold

Love it so far (only day 3), three questions for those on here that know far more than I do so far:

1) With Black Pack should the spare wheel also be Black or should it be Silver?
2) Should there be a service book in the folder with the handbook?
3) Is it possible to search for a specific album or artist on an iPod connected by USB? Currently I get to a menu in "FIND" that means you have to scroll through all of the albums to get to the one you want rather than being able to type a name and jump to it, checking if I am missing something. (coming from a 2012 Volvo XC60 that you could type the name)

Thanks in advance for any advice.

1) I think it should be black (but that's just my opinion).
2) No. Service is recorded online: https://osh.landrover.com/?brand=land-rover
3) No clue, sorry.

Hi, we got a black pack on our Discovery and the spare wheel is black and it's should be the same colour as your wheels, put some photos on👍

Dealer has agreed with me...whilst it is having the mudflaps put on this week (agreed as part of purchase but delivered to dealer day after I collected the car) they're having the spare swapped for a black one, since it obviously wasn't checked prior to delivery.

Pics to follow when it's clean again!
