    Doing Modifications

    Hi All

    Looking at buying a D5 SdV6 SE. Previously had D3s and D4s.

    Are people doing their own improvements to the D5? For example, one item I will miss is the heated steering wheel. On the D3 site there are plenty of threads about how to source and fit a heated wheel. Same with remote heat, cubby fridge etc etc.

    Are people adding these kind of accessories themselves to the D5? Is it any more tricky/difficult? Is it just the lack of an IID tool holding people back?

    My first mods will be to self fit the roof rails and a second hand towbar.

    Interested in what people are doing to their D5.

    No, you can’t mod the car, there no way to alter the CCF - at the moment.

    Roof bars, tow bar, rubber mats, mudflaps is about it.

    People tend to buy a D5 that suits their needs rather than buy one and mod it.

    2018 Discovery Td6 HSE Lux Indus Silver

    In just over 2 months I have .....

    Fitted new Dynamic grille
    Fitted black roof bars
    Fitted mud flaps
    Fitted black pack vents
    Fitted black pack mirrors
    Fitted Dynamic bumper inserts

    Mainly cosmetic because my HSE Lux comes with most bits.

    Roof will be wrapped black in the next month
