Update on my AB search, finally I have ordered a new stock AB which I found in taggarts run out stock of my17 cars, Firenze red, stealth pack, black roof, full black leather, a few other toys, exact spec we were looking for! Should be built by the end of the month with delivery early November. Best trade in offer from them however I have sold mine to a prestige dealer for £6k above Cap clean this month so it's gone! 9% approx of the new car inc deposit contribution. There are only around 70 stock AB's left currently in build so I've been told, most are black, white or grey but there are some out there with good deals to be had if you push them.

Roll on November!


Good choice, Fire Engine looks great. Same spec as mine (bar the wheels). Enjoy. Thumbs Up MY16 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic - Fire Engine Red, Fixed contrast panoramic roof, TV, Dual Screen, 5+2, Privacy.

Cheers km, going to try & keep this one a few years, but you never know! When you wash yours do you get many spots when it drys? I've got a water filter & usually do final rinse with that & get very little on the black roof & nothing you could see on the white, but what's the red like?

Fire Engine is a very strange colour. On an overcast day it looks dark, almost burgundy, and can be quite disappointing, but on a normal/sunny day it pops bright, the metallic flake in it is like no other metallic paint I've had, it sparkles.

I don't have any problems with the paint at all, no drying spots at all. The only problem is keeping the contrast pillars swirl free, that's a nightmare. MY16 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic - Fire Engine Red, Fixed contrast panoramic roof, TV, Dual Screen, 5+2, Privacy.

Sounds similar to yulong white, looks flat on dull days but in the sun looks great when clean except for tar & iron spots, good to hear. My answer for the pillars is to get them perfect when new then I just wash it weekly with 2 buckets, grit guards & a merino wool mit then rinse with filter. Every 6 months or so I go over it with meguiers detailing spray with microfibre cloth & that's it, no chamois from me!

Thanks again

Firenze red is a xiralllic paint so it has anodised coloured flake instead of just standard metal flake hence why it comes alive in the sunlight
I love this colour and had a xfs in it......but have been persuaded by her indoors to go for velocity blue Very Happy

Mark good things come to those that wait, hopefully! No I had to get out of my 14month old Hse dynamic right to make this happen, loved that car and if we never got the trade sale & discounted purchase right I would have kept what I had.

The drive & ride are far superior to the new shape x5's & X6 I came from aswell, worth paying the additional premium for however the LR dealers trying to screw their customers over with Censored poor trade in values does "stick in my craw" as we say up here!

Good to know your enjoying yours!

Car is built & was called over by dealer yesterday, they are hoping for delivery to them on Monday at the latest and telling me I should have it by next weekend at the latest, Maybe even Tuesday as they are desperate to have it registered in October!

Chris I know, we had a little blip with our dealer last weekend as the pcp rate has dropped & a free service plan if you take a pcp this quarter, they tried playing hard ball with me but Farnells offered me nearly the exact same car for a good bit less with the new pcp rate & free service pack, went back to my dealer & told them if they didn't give me what was now advertised I'd be buying from elsewhere, only took 10 mins to come back to me with a yes sir no problem from the sales manager. I was already looking at my18 cars at that point as you say our spec Hse dynamics are around £85k! A similar AB to what I'm getting for around £78k with deployable side steps would cost around £90k+ with no discount or deposit contribution! Can't justify that money, I would have to wait and buy a six month old one or an M3! Might go for a M X5 next time depending on fuel costs. I'll get some picks on once I get it!

There must be some big end of month bonuses for that dealership at stake then and it was worth more to them to keep your custom with a lower margin than for you to take your business elsewhere! 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

Sales are not good just now, they need my RRS in October as they keep telling me, selling plenty lower end things like disco sports, evoques etc but they have even given us a brand new evoque convertible demo until we get the new car, the deal I'm on now is roughly 7.5% off car, free service pack, free guard x, £1500 deposit contribution, discount off deployable side steps, 5.9% Apr pcp & new evoque loan car foc for 2 weeks from selling mine to a third party dealer for £5k more than they could offer with their blessing!

Off the record it seems that velar pricing, uncertainty with brexit, RRS my18 price increases etc are all making existing customers keep what they have or move to other brands. May work out well if we can hang in there as things may self right going forward, wishful thinking maybe?

I bought mine from Farnell in Guiseley. From my calls to various dealers Farnell’s seem to be one of the better dealer groups from what I could ascertain.

Even though I live in South London it was worth the 300mile trip becuase they matched my bank on the PCP APR rate and also were keen on the screen price. My understanding is they work on the basis of high turnover and low margins.

Your point about product/pricing is right for me. I’m holding on to mine for a bit longer, but I’ll be moving away from JLR next purely becuase what I can get elsewhere exceeds anything they can offer. That is unless anything dramatically changes in the next few months. MY16 SDV6 Autobiography Dynamic - Fire Engine Red, Fixed contrast panoramic roof, TV, Dual Screen, 5+2, Privacy.
