    2018 Discovery Td6 HSE Lux Indus Silver

    67 plate DISCO 5 HSE Lux purchased today

    Went in to buy another Vogue having had a number of Disco's, Vogues and a lovely (but very fragile) 16 plate RRS Autobiography. Have been away for a year with a BMW M4 CS and a Disco 4 XS with 127k on it as a dog and kids car.

    Went in to buy another Vogue but got seduced by a 1 owner D5 HSE Lux they had in. Indus, black pack, black 18 ways leather, black 21" wheels, Meridian SS, 360 deg cameras, Rear screens, Deployable tow bar, electric everything, large screen nav etc.

    Pick it up next Friday.

    Been a very active member on Disco3 and Disco4 so looking forward to being part of this community.

    (One Q, does the IID BT tool have any use on the D5 if I registered it)

    IID is really of no use yet. I have not bothered the trouble and cost of transferring the VIN[/code]

    My car was registered at the end of September 17 as a 67 plate. Any idea if this is MY18 or 17? How can I tell?

    Sounds like it's a great car, put some photos on once you pick it up. My car is silver with black pack and 21in wheels. The 21in wheels really set the car off and the ride quality is still superb 👍

    Indeed the IIDTool just reads and clears fault codes on the D5 at the moment. With regards to transferring your existing IIDTool from your D4 to a D5 - GAP do not charge for this. You'll need to send GAP an email if you want do a transfer to another VIN,

    Thought it was time to post some pictures. Had it for 2 months. Been back at dealer for 3 weeks of that.
    New rear screen as seal had gone, new SIM car reader, some paint work sorted, but still love it. Have obviously added a few things since I had it. Having had 4 black, 2 dark blue and 1 white car in my last few, I am falling in love with Silver again. Definitely needs less cleaning to keep it looking good but works very very well with the black pack bits.

    2018 Discovery Si6 HSE Lux Santorini Black

    Love the black lettering on the silver paint. Really sticks out. Thumbs Up

    The gloss black numberplate surround really looks the business.

    I think the front bumper would suit the 3 "forked fingers" on the lower bumper and give it a meaner look so to speak.

    Having a black on black car, the badges just don't "pop" out at you as on your car.

    I do wonder what the badging would look like if it was red or white on a black car as both go well imo.
