    Hmmm,

    1 week into my order and I'm panicking now. I suspect the dealer needs it in December to reach that quarters target? You could just say you don't want it if thats the case and see what they say?

    Or ask about them putting a 4th years warranty on it?

    One quote I had had got the Year 4 warranty cost added into the total price. Firstly I was annoyed and secondly I didn't think it was doing the credibility of a new Discovery many favours.
    Plus, if you flog it after 3 years you've paid for someone else warranty.


    I'm only intending to keep mine for 30 months so an extended warranty wouldn't do me much good.

    Following three factory visits in the past few weeks I can assure you that the wait is well worth it. Particularly if you can pick it up at the factory as I'm doing.
    Honestly they treat you like royalty

    2018 Discovery Td6 HSE Lux Silicon Silver

    Was the discovery production not going to the Nitra plant by now? So yours must have been one of the last made in Britain!

    Hi Labbix
    I mentioned that to the guys there.
    They said although the new factory has started production they're not making D5's there yet and production of the D5 isn't expected to begin there until March 2019 at the earliest.
    They said even then production of the D5 is likely to continue for many months, slowly reducing as the production ramps up abroad.

    Of course I can't verify any of this but this is what I was told.

    2019 Discovery SDV6 HSE Carpathian Grey

    Well, after a torturous order / fulfillment / hand-over process, the car has finally shown up. Love the car and looking forward to a London - Snowdonia - London run this w/e. Apologies for the crap photos (with the car still in off-road height after fitting the side steps from Direct 4x4).

    Or even an inch Laughing Opening the tailgate from the fob can take a passerby's head off. Unfortunately it is destined to live at the side of the road when my toy comes back. Sad

    I wouldn't want to park a car as nice as that on the road... Can't you just trim your bush, so to speak, and make more room?!

    One space and too many cars! Unfortunately this one is second in the pecking order.

    Trimming my bush is a subject for another website altogether. Laughing

    Intrigued to know what car trumps a D5 in the pecking order?
