What have I done.....

Post by surfingmonkey » Mon Dec 03, 2018 1:05 pm

I only popped into my local dealership (Guy Salmon Wakefield) on Saturday during the Black Event to get the reassurance that what I wanted could not be done.

Expecting to be told:
That there wasn't enough equity in my Disco Sport to cover the outstanding finance balance.
That I'd have to contribute more than I wanted as a deposit
That the monthly payments would be more than I wanted to make
And that there wasn't a 3.0 HSE TD6 in Corris Grey with Black Pack, privacy glass and a heated steering wheel anywhere in the country.

I picked it up a week later......

And good god it's big!

At first it seems big.
After a while, it feels just right, but all the other cars look so tiny! :D

Yes, it is big and daunting for a few minutes. I took one out for 3 days and, due to the higher driving position, it was easier to place on the road than my Discovery Sport. The air suspension gives a fabulous ride. My order is now in for March delivery. Much better than the Velar on all counts (IMHO).
On order: D5 HSE 2L in Fuji with Light Oyster/Espresso interior. Driver Assist Pack. Technology Plus Pack. TR2. Heated Steering Wheel.

I chose the D5 over a range rover autobiography so no arguments from me on your choice :-)
