End of Discovery Journey 🥲

A pretty sad week ahead, after more than 18 years of Disco ownership, 2,3 & 4s, it’s time to move onto something a little smaller and hopefully lighter on the pocket to run. I’ve had my 2016 Landmark from new and it’ll be sorely missed but with retirement plans first and foremost along with what we actually need from our main car, it’s time to change whist late D4 values are apparently high.

Sadly there’s nothing in the LR line up that fits the need or that I want to spend my money on. I’ve driven D5s and Defenders but still too big and expensive for what we actually need for the foreseeable. The kids have flown so just swmbo and me to worry about nowadays.

I’ve sourced a lovely, 2021, low mileage Volvo XC60 Inscription Pro, B5 Diesel Hybrid with every available option, in my favourite colour of Denim Blue / blond interior. Whilst a total change I’m sure it will transport the two of us in fine comfort whilst easily towing the tin tent.

The first trip will over to the Arisaig area on the West, next week, a decent test 🤗.

Thanks to Martin for creating this forum and to everyone on here who’s helped over the years.

I'd normally say "you'll be back", but from a 2016 Landmark there is only compromise in the LR fold, and none of it cheap.

You can, of course, continue to visit the forum. The only exception, with hindsight, would have been if we'd barred Skoda owners. Whistle

Sorry to see you go but Volvo is definitely the way forward, I've owned 6 of them and they've all been excellent... Ill keep a look out for you on the sunny hills of Aberdeenshire Rolling Eyes

Re Skoda owners... I'm waiting until he has the first issue with Skippy then we can all shout "strip it !" in a very loud voice.. Rolling with laughter

Look ... he's so, so far away I feel emboldened to hurl insults whenever the opportunity arises.

And I'm led to believe he'll never need the space inside a Disco ever again as his whole log store will now fit in the glovebox of Skippy. Isn't that right, Nige?

And just to close this out here it is looking at home. So far very pleased but it’ll take a while to get the Disco out of my system 🥲
