    New MY2020 SE Ordered

    Since there's no MY2020 yet..

    We placed our order for our D5 in Corris Grey on 29/03 expecting it to be close to cut off for 19.5/20 model, and received notification of available allocation 07/05 that the car will be built as a 20 model in Eiger Grey. We're looking at a build date of 28/06, delivery 26/07.

    Spec we're getting as follows:

    Si4 SE (2.0L PETROL 300HP)
    Eiger Grey
    Black Exterior Pack
    20" 5 Split-Spoke 'Style 5011' Gloss Black Finish
    Privacy Glass
    Interactive Driver Display
    Gloss Black Veneer
    Fixed Side Steps

    Took a while before getting confirmation against Corris, but fortunately paint codes available for Eiger so we had a paint card sprayed to give us an idea of how it'd look. It's not far off, slightly more silver in it, but depends on lighting more than anything. Looks fresher than Corris which I must admit I was set on, so nice to have seen Eiger in the flesh.

    This'll be our first Land Rover, and after a brilliant test drive we're really looking forward to our delivery.

    Sounds great, Bob.

    I’m in the ‘first Land Rover’ and ‘ Censored , colour withdrawn’ clubs with you!

    Interesting that on the 29th March you were almost able to order Corris, as I was told of it and Loire being withdrawn on the 11th March and was completely unable to order Loire.

    I’ve ended up with a MY20 order as well, in Carpathian. I don’t have anything like as good visibility on dates as you do, though. Simply a tentative handover date of 31st July. I’m not holding my breath and quite expecting to have to wait longer after that. Hope to be proved wrong!!

    I drove a SDV6 SE for 24 hours and it sold me on the Disco. Here it is next to a tiddler X5. Irrespective of engine/spec I think it’s an incredible package.

    Did think it was pretty strange, because we knew it was unlikely but were told that LR will sometimes honour orders placed before a certain date as they’re still transitioning between models.

    Fingers crossed you get news soon, totally depends on your dealer allocation and I guess engine as to when you’re date would be if they produce on different lines, who knows?!

    Good stuff! We were getting a really good deal on the SE which we weren’t getting close to with HSE, and when looking at the derivative differences we weren’t too concerned on what we were missing out on, added the tech we wanted so are happy with it Smile

    Bob the acorn leather in the SE I think is a better option than the lighter leather in the HSE which is murder to keep clean. Black leather looks go to👍

    @Chalkey - thanks for the heads up - that's good to know for future reference because the wife likes the lighter but I'm really not keen so we went with the black Smile

    @Taz - it certainly seemed it on the test drive we had, looking forward to it. We have a VW Tiguan 2l Diesel at the moment...let's just say the turbo lag is real.
