To be fair though, it's not really just the fault of that misaligned number plate ....
..... it's that huge swathe of metal from the rear lights, waaaay down to the lower black plastic trim.

Again, to be fair .... if I'd bought one I'd be in denial too. Confused

Zimbabwe 2008 Discovery 3 TDV6 HSE Auto Stornoway GreyDiscovery 3

Have to laugh!! My Dad chopped his D4 for a new D5 a couple of months ago.
When we visited him and my kids saw his new Disco for the first time (from the rear as we pulled into his drive) they both chirped me "Why is the number plate not straight!!
Of course, being the loving grandchildren that they are, this was the first thing they say to their dear old Gramps!! Rolling with laughter Rolling with laughter Rolling with laughter Rolling with laughter
Over a beer later we both came to the conclusion that is pig ugly!!
From Disco 1 to 4 the back is a beauty, then this!!! Big Cry

Get used to it girls, it’s here to stay when all your D3/4s are at the Scrappys.

I thought it might grow on me but if anything, every time I see one, it just looks worse.
I do like the D5 however but that rear number plate is just a huge mistake and the comments here are totally valid.
 Mods:
Front Fogs + Halos
FBH Remote Control
The 1st Ever RRS Modded Grill
Garmin Nuvi + D4 Surround + Reversing Camera.
D4 Steering Wheel.
Rear Boot Spoiler.
Twin Brake Lights.
Wing Mirror Indicator Repeaters.
Long Roof Rails

I'm not scared, I'm outta here.

I’d not be surprised if the D3 becomes a classic. I doubt the D5 will though.

Will be interesting to see what they do when they facelift the D5

I thought most of the comments here are regarding an ar$elift, rather than a facelift?

Unlikely - personally I think it looks ok, one was parked close to where I was sat having a beer last night, with (I assume 22”) wheels in a deep grey - looked ok but it’s not a car that appeals to an enthusiast - it’s to much like so many other large 4x4’s - it lacks character and that’s why it’s appeal will never last as long as the 12 year tenure of the D3/4 - IMO.

Do you really think the D5 is as revolutionary in both design and technology as the D3 was?
