I used to use my Dad's old 110 just after i passed my test - a Series 2a I seem to recall - about 1955 vintage

S2a would have 109in, a '55 would have been 107in S1 (109in at the end of the S1's life I think). 110 came in with the new-fangled stuff after the S3. A 2-litre diesel S1 would have been 109in but it wouldn't have been in 1955. Thumbs Up 2012 SDV6

Haha. I need to check my facts before pontificating on this forum. Too many geeks! Rolling with laughter

I notice no one picked me up on the maintenance point. That's a fact then!

I'll ask my mum when I see her next week. Not that she'll know - never was interested in cars -but she might surprise me even at 86 years old Smile if she can recall the date that might bring everything into perspective Robin

12 month update

Can't believe it's been a year since I owned a LR Shocked

Travelled 11500 trouble free miles with costs of 2.5p/mile for electric and 6p/mile for petrol giving total of 8.5p/mile Cool

The OBC shows 87 mpg since I got it which is within about 1 mile of fuelly so pretty accurate Bow down

I don't know what costs were for RRS but the DS worked out at 13.6p/mile meaning I have a saving around £585 on fuel plus free road tax, free parking in York and only £59/m BIK so I've no complaints Thumbs Up

I plan using the PHEV less for longer trips now I have the Lexus so expect petrol use to reduce with more EV use - running costs should drop further over next year Mr. Green

Unfortunately the Lexus road tax was £20 pre April but is now £440 Big Cry

Had first service today with no drama Shocked

Left it at dealer who dropped us in Leeds centre for day shopping and lunch then picked us up when finished - no charges as I have 3 years service pack Cool

PHEV washed and batteries recharged ready for trip home too - they even emailed me a video of vehicle check showing brake pads and discs while wheels off - it never fell of ramp either Wink

Swmbo cost me a fortune for lunch and shopping though so I might take them up on collection next time Big Cry

If only I had this level of service from LR I would never have left Rolling Eyes

Don't get me started on service levels. When will companies understand that price isn't everything. And with LR (to name but one) they're not even cheap! Worst of both worlds. Robin

I paid £495 for 3 years service pack on Mitsubishi - used to pay that pa on RRS Sad

The video they sent gives name and email address of technician too in case I have any questions Thumbs Up

I'm also pleased to see on my dashcam he did a short road test without the stereo on at all never mind full blast and no hard acceleration/braking or flouting of speed limits Mr. Green

Finally getting the treatment I dreamed of from a brand/dealer Bow down

In case anyone is interested in this life of tranquillity the friend that persuaded me to buy the Mitsubishi PHEV is changing his for a newer model - he'll accept £24750 (px value) for his pristine Nov 2015 plate with 9600 miles, 2 years free servicing, 3 years Mitsubishi warranty and 6 years battery warranty in metallic red Whistle

Sound good Muddy, in fact very good, however I just don't fancy a float, well not yet, and I do agree Land Rover Stealerships are poo. In Spain - Santorini Black 2011 HSE
In UK - Not saying, but its NOT a Muddy Milk Float.

Took me 6 bad years after 10 good ones for the penny to drop so I get it SRE Thumbs Up

Had an interesting chat with the car jockey who ran us into Leeds about his dad's £140k Overfinch RRS - it would be funny if it wasn't so bad Rolling Eyes

I received an email today from the owner of the Mitsubishi dealership thanking me for my custom and to contact him if I had any problems - even giving me his mobile number Shocked

Swmbo said I should reply which I thought was OTT but did it for some peace - he replied personally at 7.50pm -

Quote:
Thanks very much indeed for your feedback, which is very valuable to me in so many ways. I will certainly share your comments with everyone, as both people involved deserve the recognition, and also to demonstrate to everyone how important simple great service and respect can be.

Many thanks for letting me know, and choosing to use our dealership.


Somebody pinch me - I'm just not used to this Laughing

Australia 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Fuji White

Since I almost dropped a deposit on a Velar and expressed interest in a new SC, the stealer won’t leave me alone Laughing Current offer is 10% off an SC.

Thread Drift below

I have done 500 miles of fast lead footed country driving, sometimes red lining my old V8 this weekend, lost track of how much fuel I have used Muddy, 2 years worth on the PHEV probably... Rolling with laughter

Rock steady at 100 mph on long straight deserted country roads, a joy to be in. It’s good to be back in an RRS after 6 years with the Germans. It was a winery trip with SWMBO who has had a rough trot with some big surgery back in June. She thinks there is no finer long distance cruising all round fast car and I think she is right. But an SC would mean me going down to 1 car and I have been used to 2. 2017 V8 SC
