The interior looks like new, the exterior is suffering from all these dirty winter roads at the moment.

I’m surprised how well the black shiny plastics along the bottom have stood up to a years worth of ownership.

Despite its issues, which are now slowly being resolved, it’s the most enjoyment I’ve had from one of my LRs in a long time.

September, because I fancy 69 Whistle

For what I’m not sure, I’m struggling. I keep coming back to LR. Spoke to my salesman, who I’m good friends with and there may be a deal on the table for a RRS HSE P400e PHEV.

A change is as good as a rest. Thumbs Up
I prefer the looks of the Velar to the RRS, but very different vehicles.

The Velar P300 is an option.

BMW still haven’t got back to me to arrange a test drive of the X3 Evil or Very Mad

No longer an option on the Velar. It was dropped around the time of the new emissions testing.

A friend was given one of those as a surprise loan car while his XF was in for service and phoned me up to rave about it! He normally hates loan cars and can’t wait to get his XF back Rolling Eyes

The RRS sounds a bit tempting too. Thumbs Up

I’m surprised the kill joys at DVLA are evening releasing the 6* plate Rolling Eyes

You’re not old enough to need an X3 yet, are you?! Whistle

Local BMW dealer doesn’t seem to care to be honest, still haven’t heard anything about a test drive, so BMW is off the list at the moment.

Volvo, really nice, comfortable but just lacking that wow factor.

Land Rover, yes the software is a mess, and LR couldn’t give a flying f Censored k but the permagrin is there.

Spoke to my LR dealer, if I take a D275 V6 (twin turbo) diesel Velar there’s a £3k LR deposit contribution plus they are having a new car sale event from the 7th - 10th February so additional savings on top of that if I order then, but nothing for petrol.

Some nice deals but not intending to change until at least September.

Replacing the Velar is on the back burner at the moment, LR value my car at £47k, £12k depreciation in a year Shocked that’s the highest of any LR I’ve owned. Told them I’d rather drop it in the docks than let it go for peanuts.

On the plus side I received a £250 voucher from LR, great! BUT it’s only any use if I have an accident. It’s some excess protection voucher Rolling Eyes

Depreciation must slow a bit as new car premium gone, but I would not be surprised if the depreciation continues to be close to that rate.
