"new Disco is a proper turd" - you tell 'em fella

I think Mr Harris must have been reading my (and quite a few others on here) mind.

Al
 MY16 D4 SE Tech, Loire Blue, Almond Leather, Privacy, plus some other goodies.
Old - MY12 D4 SDV6 XS Auto - Ipanema Sand with Almond Leather - Plus other niceties, and D4.com sticker
Older - D3 TDV6 XS Auto - Lugano Teal with Almond Leather, 20" Stormers, Shiny Tailpipes, DVD/TV - and obligatory D3 sticker
Ancient - D3 TDV6 S - Tonga with Ebony, 20" Stormers, satnav & DVD

If you think you are too small to make a difference - you've never shared a bedroom with a mosquito

Nail on the head there i'd say!

Obviously, sales figures and profits prove him wrong perhaps, but he seems to share a lot of views I read on here.

I've always liked his writing, he tells it like it is, and has fallen out with several manufacturers over the years as a result.

Still, it beat the XC90 and Q7 in their group test Wink

Though I do agree to certain extent but the sales figures speak for themselves, LR are selling more cars than they ever have.

Ferrari being the biggest and most publicised, but they did kiss and make up.

He’s brilliant such a shame the bbc got their teeth into him.

You can see why they did though, probably Chris Evans best decision on the "new" TG.

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Heck, he even insulted my car, but I know what he’s getting at Thumbs Up

The D3 & 4 are still the best looking (properly traditional) Land Rovers built for a long time,
 

Two glorious D4’s, but have defected to the footballer / drug barron camp - with a L405 FFRR Wink

...but I can’t understand his liking for the RR Sport, yet his negativive feelings for the FFRR; they look like a reprofiled version of the same design (with the FF at least having vertical tail lamps to make if look more “proper”*).
