Thanks Stan, I wonder how long it will be before she joins the forum and starts asking questions about JLR''s build quality and how to do a battery reset on a Velar. Rolling with laughter

Best setup another category in the Wiki! Whistle

I prefer it to the new Sport and Discovery. Really like the Union Flag vent holes on the leather. Tom

I was sat behind a new Discovery (not the sport) and by God does it's bum look big!

I much prefer the outgoing version. Sometimes progress isn't always a good thing Rolling Eyes Got - 2008 TDV8 Vogue SE in Java black

I agree it looks awful.

Must have been a suggestion from the "good ideas" marketing people........seriously dropped the ball on that one IMHO Rolling Eyes

What's the betting the number plate will be "centralised" when it has its first mini-facelift...... Whistle 2012 Westminster

Just to maintain the off thread discussion.... is the offset plate not a Disco feature? Its been there since day one.

I appreciate the new Disco seems to exaggerate the feature a little but it is still a good looking motor overall.

Like Ellie but not the most convincing interview I've seen. I get the impression she is there out of publicity duty rather than a lover of the RR. 4.4 TDV8 SE

Australia 2013 Range Rover Autobiography TDV8 Fuji White

In Australia we had a car I think it was called Stavic or some strange name, from China it had the same awful rear end.
I do not like the back end on the new Discovery, the rest of the car is very nice!

I like the new Discovery. Nothing wrong with asymmetry in design.

No idea who 'Ellie' is. Suprised she could drive it in those shoes.

Was at a LR event in Largs today. Did the uppy/downy course in the new Discovery. It's still an ugly looking beast.

Got some pics of the Velar that I'll upload later. Got - 2008 TDV8 Vogue SE in Java black
