    New HSE ordered.

    Hi All
    Just thought I'd fill you all in, now I have a confirmed build date.
    Have put a deposit down on a new HSE.
    Spec:
    Silicon Silver
    20" Alloys, as I will be putting General Grabber at3's on it.
    Dynamic pack 2 - (notice this looks to have beem removed from the MY20 build sheet)
    Black contrast roof & roof rails
    Privacy Glass
    Brushed aluminium trim
    Heated steering wheel
    Remote timed park heat
    Terrain response 2
    Adaptive dynamics
    At the moment a multi height towbar (may change for the deployable)

    Build date of mid June, so hopefully get it early July at best.


    Can't wait - doesn't seems to be much difference betwwen MY19 & MY20 apart from the price increases.

    Thumbs Up

    Sounds great, silicon silver is a great colour. Is this your first D5 with adaptive dynamics? And did you manage to test drive one with that option?

    Yep my 1st D5, after 3 D4’s since 2012.
    I’ve not tried a D5 with AD but my wife has just got a new shape Evoque which we had ordered with it and it just rides so much better than her previous Evoque that it really was a ‘no brainer’ not to add it to the D5 order.
    If I’m true to myself I’m not sure about the D5, and wether it’s too good for me, and I should be waiting for the Defender to launch at the end of the year, but I’ve got a really good discount that won’t be available on the Defenders for some time too come I’m guessing.
    So I came to the conclusion that went along the lines of ‘sod it’ just get it ordered and move on.
    It’ll be great.

    I think I remember your discount post - a brilliant deal that’s too good to turn down!

    The D5 looks incredibly capable off-road, not that I know anything about such things (kind of hoping that changes over the coming years!). So hopefully a good choice for you - I’m guessing those tyres mean mud aplenty.

    I preferred the more utilitarian exterior of the D4 line and I’m really interested to see how the defender turns out. It sure has taken them long enough.
