    Double click the link and change it there, too. It's still pointing to the same place even though the text is different. 

    In the meantime, I will copy/paste. Smiley

    I assume that cutaway version is a favorite with the lions.

    Thanks for that. My search for the missing link kept bringing me back to the wrong thread..........

    It's so bland, almost looks unfinished to me. Complete lack of bumper edge definitions make it look like a cartoon.. enlightened

    I like it 


    Re: Land Rover Discovery finally discovered the wind tunnel

    Looks decent to me. Not super expensive either.


    Re: Land Rover Discovery finally discovered the wind tunnel

    starting at 50k in Canada I believe, I find that quite pricy still.

    Actually from $61,500 as per their site.  Keep in mind this replaces the LR4, which started at $65,000.  This will be the biggest Land Rover - identical sized to the full sized Range Rover for 56% the price - could argue it is a bargain.

    Front is nice, Range Rover nice but the rear is...how to put it...weird. Interior is also an improvement.

    Re: Land Rover Discovery finally discovered the wind tunnel

    I find it horribly styled. While I always thought the Discovery 4 was a very cool looking car, this has none of that rugged cool.

    Exactly my thaughts. Glad I did not wait for it ( as I first intended to ) and got a Q7

    I hope the new Defender is better.  That is the one that interests me the most.

    It is cool due to it's lack of styling though Smiley

    Re: Land Rover Discovery finally discovered the wind tunnel

    still I'm towards land cruiser prado/lexus gx


    Re: Land Rover Discovery finally discovered the wind tunnel

    Haven't posted in quite a while but thought I would chip in on this thread. 

    I've just put in my order today for one of these. HSE in Corris grey with black pack. For me, it's the perfect family car. We have a toddler and a baby and spend a lot of time in the country. I've considered other cars such as the X5 and Q7 but they don't have enough boot space or carry 7 people in comfort. Plus I've had lots of problems with my A6 avant and my local Audi dealer is very poor. 

    I've been invited to the Land Rover factory in Solihull next weekend to see the new Discovery in the flesh and to speak to some of the engineers behind it. Will let you know how it goes!

    Re: Land Rover Discovery finally discovered the wind tunnel

    The Discovery is very popular here in La Jolla. Seems like everyone has one. Certainly better looking than the Evoque. A couple of people I spoke with LOVE it.

    On another note, MY RRS had a defective fuel gage sensor. It took over three weeks to get the part from England.Smiley Also, after 20,000 miles I needed front and back brake pads $1250.Smiley

    Re: Land Rover Discovery finally discovered the wind tunnel

    Placed the order for my 2017 RRS Autobiography yesterday. The new Discovery has a large third row but no large engine or luxury finishes.

    Nice car! My wife is thinking about changing to a Disco sport. I do think this colour combination suits these cars, I see quite a lot of RRS over here in grey with the stealth/black pack
