Found my 1st serious omission!

Went shopping this morning and............... there are no little hooks in the boot like the big RR had. This means I cannot rig my exFreelander luggage netting across the boot to put carrier bags in to stop them sliding round, and there are no other hooks in the boot at all to hook carrier bag handles onto.
There were at least 4 in the boot of the big RR................. Confused serious omission that one in a car where due to your driving technique things are likely to move round in the boot (a bottle of bleach fell over on the way home..... fotunately the cap was well screwed down and it was extra wrapped in a carrier bag) Looks like a visit to B&Q for some stick backed hooks is coming up otherwise I'm going to have to buy a rubber boot liner/mat to stop things sliding round.

For the last 3 years all those trails have been opened to 4x4 (300 miles of Forest roads between the Queen Elizabeth FP and the Argyll FP) 3 times a year. The spring and Autumn forest drives were just that, a drive but the June drive had special offroad stages......... and when they resume them the RR Sport may not be doing these stages, these shots are all of my Defender90

Deep water wading...... cost me 2 new rear hubs, but it was great fun at the time


In the slate quarry


Another quarry shot


In the deep mud and it was poring with rain too......


This isn't my Def but I have done this several times, so did my Freelander but not the RR!


RRTD6 P13 at offroad height in the forests


P12 and P13 stopped for lunch in Argyll Forest

The RRTD6 did these drives twice, 1st time it was 3 weeks old and it didn't do the mud or the water .............. on that occassion!

Sorry to hear about the omission, Tim. If I'm not mistaken, there's supposed to be 4 Luggage Anchor Points - are we talking the same thing? Page 140 of the Owner's Handbook shows this. I don't know how to insert the pdf page here. Malaysia Boleh!

Another wee omission/ bit of poor design

Land Rover have listened to the criticism that was leveled at the L322 Range Rover and the fact that it was difficult for the driver to read the analogue clock on the dash. I you wanted to find out the time without taking your eyes off the road , you had to scroll through the trip computer functions.................. Well LR have addressed that bit of poor design............... there is no analogue clock and the time display on the radio is hidden from the driver by the steering wheel rim......................... and the trip computer is not as user friendly to scroll through as on the L322! Looks like a trip to Halfords for a cheapo stick on job is called for!
