Yes S/C and TDv8 had it as standard from launch. On pre-facelift cars there will not be a separate function in the Terrain Response for the Dynamic setting but you can check by looking at the TR selector to see if there is a function icon showing bendy roads as well as the Highway setting icon of a straight road/Motorway 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW.... my fun car to enjoy bashing and denting 20 years old and still giving loads of fun

So the fix lasted for about two weeks, then the usual creaking noise. Went back to garage and got underneath car whilst up on ramp. All tight and nothing loose. ARB bushes look in good condition with no play. Mechanic thinks that the non LR lower arms possibly replace in Nov last year are cheap Censored and thats where the problem lies. Had the same replaced on my Disco 3 so its not cheap, but will be getting it done, along with upgraded ARB bushes. The lower arms were done before I bought it, and they are def not original LR.

Sorted,,,,,, hopefully

Just had the lower front wishbones replaced with genuine parts. The 'old' parts, possible replace in Nov last year before I bought the car, look really chaep with no markings to say who or where they were manufactured.

Also had the ARB bushes changed as well.

Fingers crossed for a quiet drive now. Previously owned 1999 Disco 2 TD5

Just been to my mechanic with the aim of getting my bushes replaced, I bought the polyurethane ones, however he now believes the creaking is from the wishbones. Facepalm. Noisy black one

All I can say is that fitting original LR wishbones has solved all my issues. Bow down Previously owned 1999 Disco 2 TD5
