    Still no joy RoadRunner?

    When I'm not in the operating theatre, I'm mountain biking, spending time with my family, running and socialising. I have a Discovery 5 HSE Lux with pretty much every option ticked. This is my first ever Land Rover. Been a rocky road with regards to reliability but we're getting there.

    Hi Doc, the scrapheap challenge is still stranded in the compound am afraid. Beginning too think it's alot more serious than I initially thought, otherwise if it was a simple fix it would have been out by now. Been in there 5 weeks plus. Am not holding my breath for delivery/registration before April am afraid. Wifes X5 test drives tomorrow 😭 Censored Censored Censored

    A colleague just bought a pre-reg Mercedes GLS350. With the discount they offered him it was about £14k cheaper than the D5 and with 8 miles on the clock it's pretty much a brand new car. Had a nose around it last night. Very impressive and decent 4x4 system underneath too.
    Is it worth a look?

    Thanks for that Doc. Well that's some hell of a saving. However makes me think about the resale residuals after 3 years when I trade my cars in as I dont have time for Mot's, plus am sure the Mercs value plummets quite a bit. Hmmmm food for thought certainly but I hate merc with a passion, both the cars and 4x4s. Just paying for the badge in my opinion and overpriced and overrated. Audi and BMW are on a par if not better than Merc in my opinion, but others may beg too differ Rolling Eyes

    I think Merc went through a very bad patch when the old ML came out. The quality of this GLS is excellent to be fair. On a par with my BMW. He has a 350AMG line with rear entertainment etc. Paid £55000 for it.
    I lost a chunk on my X5 too.
    Thought it worth a mention.

    Yes I am aware of the poor build on the Mercs plus were assembled in the USA, Alabama, with cheap plastics. Not what you expect from a so called luxury car manufacturer.
    BMWs do drop like a lead balloon unfortunately especially the saloons, the 6 series I believe. Hence I have always stuck with LR and Subaru as residuals are alot better. Thumbs Up
