    Been researching side steps and have found 2 who can supply & fit , Direct 4 x4 Derby and Side Steps Uk Midlands .
    Anyone had either of these products fitted and can give feedback ?

    Many Thanks

    2017 Discovery Td6 HSE Fuji White

    mine were fitted by Sidesteps UK. Was all very easy, dropped in one Saturday morning and they fitted them FOC outside their workshop, just lifted car to off-road height. Took about 40 minutes and didn't need any of the under car covers to be cut.

    I have the chunky ones not the ones that look like JLR originals, They have been on 21 months now still look good and are unmarked from kids and mother-in-law's heels.

    Mine are 100% black, there was a choice of all black or with a silver insert. My car has the black pack hence I went 100% black.

    2017 HSE Td6 with Capability plus pack, wade sensing, parking heater, armest fridge, head up display and surround cameras, 4 zone climate, black pack, privacy glass, adaptive headlamps, intelligent seat fold, deployable tow bar, side steps.

    Thanks for the reply , would you say the steps stick far enough out to offer some protection from car doors/knocks etc .
    When we had a D4 the side steps and left in off road setting offered some protection whilst in car parks , the D4 Steps look wider than the ones available for the D5 , but looking at pics its hard to tell.

    2019 Discovery SDV6 HSE Lux Carpathian Grey

    I need to get the sidesteps.co.uk steps, already one nasty chip on the widest part of the door. Mordred, do you have a pic of your chunky ones ? Apologies for not doing a forum search.

    OP, Eiger is a lovely colour. I had a lot of buyer’s remorse after ordering it to replace Carpathian, but there is not a single lighting condition under which I don’t prefer Eiger. (Not knocking Carpathian, it’s a beautiful colour)

    Drives: 2020 MY20 HSE Luxury SDV6 in Eiger Grey/Glacier
    Departed: 2019 MY20 HSE Luxury SDV6 in Carpathian Grey/Glacier, 440i, 320d, Toyotas, Mondeo, Citroen BX amongst others

    did you also opt for the high/low range box, as when I was going through the configurator (D300 R-Dynamic HSE) it was an option, so looks like as standard the new models dont have high/low range which previous (current) do.

    Al

    whey hey - D5 HSE 2Ltr in Corris with black roof, black & dynamic packs & 22" black alloys, a bit of a change after 2 D3's and 2 D4's Smile

    2018 Discovery Td6 SE Corris Grey

    Dont forget the £760 cost of a full size spare now, whereas it was £0 if you took std wheels or £100 / 200 if you took non standard wheels.

    Low range box being an option just doesn't seem right for a Discovery...

    A D300 HSE with towbar and offroad pack is over 70K. Getting very pricy.

    I was just told by my dealer (in the U.S.) that they will start taking order for MY21. But I have yet to see an option sheet with any changes for '21. Has anyone seen one?

    Edit: hmm missed this from yesterday: https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a3458633...-revealed/

    Looks like here we have no diesel option now. Bother.
