Weren’t the front ones cracked originally? Confused


Yes indeed.

Now it’s the rears, but this time I found a technical bulletin relating to rear light cracks. They believe everything is that tightly fitted to the Velar, for aerodynamics, that any body movement is causing stress fractures.

Bloody hell, they go from one extreme to another. One minute there are panel gaps in the Defender bigger than the Panama Canal, now the lack of panel gaps in the Velar are causing stress fractures in the lights.

Looking for a happy medium in the new Defender perhaps!!!! Whistle

Well, picked my new Velar up 2 weeks ago, wasn't sure which way to go?, wanted RRS. but couldn't justify extra cost, wasn't sure about D5, son complained about lack of support in back seat, and residuals were a lot better on Velar, so decided to try Velar. do miss driving position of D4 and space is smaller but do like sportier driving style, went with 275 HSE, must say impressed with performance and economy, So time will tell.
