kevinlally- new Discovery 3 tdv6 7 seat

Finally placed my order today for a new Discovery 3. Very Happy
I should be collecting next Thurs / Fri 21/22 July (I hope).

It will be the new Buckingham blue (very dark metallic) with Alpaca interior.

After considering new imports and ex-demo models, I've been tempted by a decent deal on a new one. A local dealer (pm me if you want more details) is desparate to meet monthly sales quota and offered me £2,500 off list.
I had been considering a Dec 04 9,000 miler Cairns blue ex dealer demonstrator, but their best price was only £1,500 less than for this brand new 2006 model year car.

Bargain! (I hope)

Fingers crossed that the decision to go with a June 05 rather than a Oct 04 build model should mean that some of the early teething issues have been ironed out...

Thanks in no small amounts to this board for advice, information and occasional sarcasm. Pity that Billing is this weekend and not the next; however there's always next year!

But my wife is away with the car (and family)- and left the mother of all 'to do' lists whilst I am home alone!

Seriously- what's at Peterborough?

Very droll, like it. It is of course the second biggest Landy show.

It looks like the LRO show hosted there last year is now due at the Malverns on 26-28 August :

Anyone going to either? / planning to meet up and get another gruesome and enigmatic team photo?

Don't know if any of you guys have heard, but it appears that a lot of the traders are not bothering about the Malverns this year as last years was not good for them. I must say, I went and it was not too good.

scorpio, have you been to the showground at Malvern because I have not. Is there to be a off road course as usual?

Ther will be two off road courses one adjacent to the showground and another a few miles away at Eastnor this one I believe will be the extreme one and they are taking booking for that www.lroshow.com
