    2019 Discovery SDV6 SE Fuji White

    Newbie from Australia


    I will be picking up my SE 5 seater Discovery 5 in a week or so. It has the Drive Pack, Capability Plus Pack and the Advanced Tow Assist plus a few other options like 360 degree cameras, heated seats, keyless entry and start and 20" wheels. It is interesting how the different equipment levels vary from country to country. We don't even have the commercial version here.

    Previously I have had a Terracan and two Grand Cherokees. I have wanted a Disco since the 3 was announced in 2004. I drove a 3 for two weeks in Namibia in 2011 and totally fell in love.

    It will be used around town and also as an Outback tourer so I will be busy kitting it out over the next few months. Auxiliary battery and tyre compressor are ready to go.

    I hope to learn a lot here and hopefully contribute.

    Hi discofans.
    D5 is my 4th disco. I had D2, D3 and the last one was D4. Im not sure that D5 is the best choice. Its so much diffrent than D4... Ive got Si6 version and I think the engine and ZF gearbox are the best parts of the new disco.
    So... Best regards from Poland.

    2017 Discovery Td6 HSE Lux Corris Grey

    Activity key wrist band not working

    Hi all,
    This is my first post so please bear with me.
    I purchased a second hand genuine activity key/band to use with my 2017 Discovery HSE Luxury.
    After following the instructions I can’t get the car to lock using the activity key.

    Any suggestions on what to do and does the activity key use batteries that could need changing.

    does the car have the activity key module? it is not a standard feature and needs to be fitted in the tailgate and then programmed by someone who has access to the JLR software for it to work. Just buying an Activity Key won't do anything. I looked at it but the cost worked out overt £500 fitted so I didn't bother.

    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.

    I am looking to buy a D5. Currently driving an F-Pace but feels a bit cramped inside it.

    I read some stories about engines blowing up. The V6 as well a 4-line.

    Is any of the engines a safer bet ? Is the td4 or sd4 better ?

    Looking at a SD4. Dealer insisted to take the 3yr warranty,
    started to make me think he smelled trouble with the car. Shocked

    Is there a poll on the engine failure ?

    Is it every engine eventually ore on every thousand???

    No acceleration

    Thanks for letting me join the page.

    I have a Disco L462 (2017) 2.0l auto. It’s started to have an acceleration lag but more concerning sometimes no acceleration just pedal to floor. This has only been from starting engine and selecting either drive or reverse. I switch the engine off and it resets itself.
    Please can someone advise. Thanks

    2017 Discovery Td6 HSE Kaikoura Stone

    Greetings to fellow Land Rover owners in Old Blimey (and elsewhere)! I have several friends in the UK, having flown the F-111F during two tours at RAF Lakenheath.

    I've always been hard over for diesel in off road vehicles, and when the D5 was introduced I was delighted that it was available with the same Td6 that was an option in the Range Rover. I placed an order on Boxing Day 2016 and took delivery in June 2017. Upgrades that I did afterwards included pitching the 255/55-60 Goodyear Eagles and stock 20" x 8.5" wheels in favor of 285/50-20 Nitto Terra Grappler G2s mounted on 20" x 9.5" Redbourne wheels (including the spare), and adding Lucky8 Rock Sliders to protect the rocker panels.

    Welcome, what a plane you flew!

    I spent many a happy hour at Upper Heyford as a child, watching the F-111E squadrons and the EF-111As.

    Think I might have chatted to you briefly on the US D5 forum.
