I received an email from the dealer that my car would be ready to collect on Wednesday. So I'm hoping to get it before next weekend. Bit of time to organise all the insurance and gap insurance and all of that stuff.

Yes, I have been reading up a lot and checking out dash cams and wheels but I'm looking forward to being in the good books with my wife for getting a new car. I'm terrible waiting for things, but they do says God things are worth the wait.

I've had a few of those sleepless weeks let alone nights.
Don't forget you have 7 days free LR insurance so no need to worry too much and the forum sponsors for gap insurance are the best in my opinion.
Hope the handover goes well.....good luck 👍

That's good to know thank you and takes the pressure off a bit. It will be interesting to look into the best types of insurance as it will be loosing value as its new I expect a bit faster. I had not thought of wheel and panel insurance before. I think I'll be waiting for the dealership to open on the day and trying to get some sleep before.

The excitement of picking up a new Land Rover/Range Rover never stops!
And when you get it, you never say "why did I lose all that sleep" you say "this is why"
So don't worry, it's all the joy of buying a British made product 👍
Even after picking it up, I'm still losing sleep with the excitement of driving it....😂

If you havent called insurance yet, just get a quote as I got the shocker that I needed a tracker fitted.....not all do, depends on your area and how high the risk is......but worth knowing now, so you are prepared....Birmingham is high risk so they wouldnt insure me without one, worth checking👍

I found the quotes a bit on the high side when I got mine.   2 and a half times what I was paying for my Z4.    Fortunately the company I'm with didn't ask for a tracker.   Must be the nice area I live in Spidey Wink

Always worth trying the NFU, they are usually competitive, and also a good organisation to deal with if you ever have to make a claim!

It's here at last and not sunk in yet that it's mine. Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
I shall have the windows tinted as for better heat reflective properties. Black badges will be put on this week and when I'm more used to driving it possibly large wheels. :)

Thank you. Yes, I was so tempted to add the black badges at the weekend but the Bodyshop will do this later in the week. Wink

Changed my insurance over from my AUDI A5 just another £79 so still less than £500 ,but checked papers when they arrived and had it down as manual , now another £50 just for the gearbox so just over£500 still not bad considering the car.No tracker required on cars less Than 80K and it wouldn't of lowered the premium either .

GAP sorted ,got a price off site sponsor very reasonable,but went with ALA as I carried over balance from the AUDI policy and the price matched also

I was paying under £200 for the Z4.   £450 for the Evoque.

Hi, I'm really enjoying it thanks. I deleted out some of the digits on the number plate on here so it wouldn't be cloned and I'll be sent loads of parking fines or congestion charges. I had a friend who had that problem. I got gap insurance from the sponsor here and it was about £300 fully comp and claims protected which wasn't too bad.

So lovely to drive but I need to go to a place tonight and park up with muddy tracks and branches poking out so I shall not be driving this.
