Its Arrived - D300 HSE Silver

Ordered in Feb and handed over today

Never had a 6 cylinder 3.0l diesel engine before - feels really good. I am sure the SVR would feel event better and the D350, but this feels amazing.

I was a bit worried about the laggy screen - but to be honest, its not that bad. Its OK - not brilliant, but not awful either. Car Play seems to work well.

Small things, but I like the double sun visors and the rising and lowering of the heigh of the vehicle, is amazing - I am like a pig in muck......

anyway, its arrived - looks really good in Black. the 21 inch wheels dont feel too "crashy" over potholes, which A D350 on 22inch did. Black out rear windows, cooler unit and the pano roof with HSE silver - totally justify the extra price.

my only gripe - for all the money, it doesn't come with a manual - have to look at the app instead - I like a good book! At 48years old - old man issues!

Congratulations for the new D300! The new inline-six Diesel are amazing.

But, as some people would say:
This thread is useless without pictures Smile

May I ask you when you have ordered in February? Do you have the 360 camera?
I ordered my HST D350 on the 24th of March. Got the info, that the 360 cameras are affected by the semiconductor bottleneck.
My car should be here in July, but this week I got the info, that it could be the case, that my car will arrive in 2022 (!) Range Rover Sport HST D350
Delivery: July 2021

sorry, working out how to upload pictures!

however, yep got surround 360 camera. The sales exec did say I was very very lucky. He said he was sold out of any stock vehicles, even a satin coated SVR.

The deal I got wasn't available anymore, JLR cant make the cars quick enough and as a result the cost of used cars is going up as well. He did mention the 5 week factory shut down as well!

I really hope you get good news soon. I have driven it more today and the engine is ace - quiet, smooth and powerful when you want it.

News from my wife who has a a clio hybrid - who had a drive - "ooh its sluggish" I was well offended! I suggested she should put her foot down and push it a bit!

with "the deal I got wasn't available anymore" - do you mean your car specifications, or?

sounds really good about the engine Smile
I did a testdrive in March with a D300. Until last August I had a SDV6 with 306hp. Two different worlds Smile Range Rover Sport HST D350

And here is the HSE Silver picked up today! Loving the spec - also the D300 engine is amazingly smooth - does not sound like a diesel at all.

Eagle77 love the shiney bit on the boot - will def look at that.

The D300 engine is ace - I came from a BMW 520d getting 48mpg - so was a wee bit concerned, done a 130 mile round trip today - mostly motorway and MPG is 37, so will def live with that!

You're right, cant stop smiling! so much so, I even washed the car tonight after the drive - which is unheard of!
