They've got to justify the price hike to HSe spec somehow, glass roof, 10inch in control touch pro, keyless locking, sliding cubby hole and drop down facia. Laughing

It's annoying that the car has the capacity for all the little cubby holes but they only reserve it for top end models. It's not like the SE is poverty spec, my one was just shy of £54k Shocked. Probably the first and last time I'll have a car at that price.


£54K was what I paid for my first flat in 1994. Its just been valued at £380k. Its a shame Land Rover's don't appreciate like that Laughing

As for the rear end it's not pretty and the brake lights are very small for such large light units, though they seem bright enough.


I followed one t'other day and can confirm that the brake lights are small but very bright. Not sure you'd want to sit behind one with the brake lights on in a traffic queue for too long.

Yes those are the standard 19" wheels on S and SE.

Tailgate is a bit big but provides great shelter, it has LED downlighting built in.

Namib Orange is one of those colours that doesn't seem to show up well in photos, I suppose taking it with a mobile doesn't help, it's stunning in the flesh and changes with the light but it is a marmite colour, love it or hate it.

So far though I'm thrilled with it, it's a pleasure to be behind the wheel.
