But is the waiting list coz they're filling up the T5 line with RRSs? It's easy to generate the sought after feeling by restricting supply. Whistle Do they still make the FF on that line?


Could be the case Del, but Velar is made on the same line, as is the Sport I presume? I think they are selling as predicted. If I were in charge, I'd make as many as possible of the most profitable products that I could shift. I presume RR products make more £££ than Land Rovers?

Wow!!! What a difference that thinner plate has made... Rolling with laughter Rolling with laughter Rolling with laughter

I kept looking at the pics and i couldn't understand why the cross on one and the tick on the other...until i started reading the article!

Mr McGovern: "We’ve got a study going on at the moment and I don’t want to change that asymmetry, but we do need to do something about the number plates.“

Who said in here that JLR would not care about what we think? I think they do! Thumbs Up

On the waiting times a dealership kind of admitted to me they 'think' the T5 line is being prioritised for the range rovers (velar presumably?) hence the D5 orders are taking time to fufil.

Knowing how marketing and media teams work this forum and any other social media will be monitored and scrutinised. I'm sure some of our threads have been discussed internally within social media teams. At our place we get a daily communications circular of all the good and bad social media received in the last 24hrs covering media, forums, twitter, Facebook, youtube the lot. Can you imagine our threads on this site flying around LR management everyday Laughing

I also sprayed the grey bumpers black £275, it helps but one should not have to send a new car to the spray shop to make it look better.

Other number plate options £15 each

So around £300 to improve the back end (a little bit)

Do I have a compo claim for the emotional distress a slightly different plate has caused?

I might play that card come trade in Laughing

Can I claim a new plate under warranty? Anyone got a technical bulletin for it?

Painting the bumpers and things black have made a difference.

Although no matter what shape of number plate you put on it. It still needs redesigned!

McGovern your a muppet!
