Hello!

So I just registered to this forum which seems pretty nice. I initially found it by looking for information about my door not unlocking... Small thing compared to the love I have for my RRE.

I've been a pretty big Land Rover fan for the past years, and finally got my Evoque last december !

Mine is a 2013 Dynamic (TD4 150hp), I'm not quite sure that you guys have the same engine range as we do in Europe. But yeah, I love mine. Imma insert some pictures so you guys can see what he looks like (yes, why would I call it a "it"?).

I just changed my lettering to be Glossy Black, but I don't have great pictures with it yet so here's one from february : 



See ya

Welcome Max. Glad you are enjoying your Evoque. You will find this site to be very useful and somewhat entertaining. We love photos so when you have a chance

Hi and welcome.   I think the Dynamic only came with the 190Ps engine in the UK in 2013.

Yep so much better with the black lettering. Wheels look good but must be a bugger to clean.

Yes they are ! I need to clean the car really soon by the way, and it's the most annoying part lol.

I'm so happy I changed the lettering ! I was very skeptical about changing them myself (bought a pack on powerfuluk), but I actually love the quality of the letters. Plus mine were pretty damaged (i dont know why, the car is only 5YO but the paint on them was coming off..).

Hey! You guys are very welcoming, thank you ! 

Yes I live just next to Bordeaux, and traffic is hell here ! I usually have between 1 to 1.5h spend every morning to commute, but it's such a pleasure to do so in an Evoque.. So, no complains ! 

I suppose I have to get approved to be able to access every forum's sections & change my profile picture ?

Thanks !

No one can view profiles, seems to be a glitch in the forum.

To add an avatar picture to your profile click on 'member control panel' in the top left corner just under the evoque logo, then click 'profile' and then scroll down to where you see 'avatar then browse from your files on your device, pictures need to be 64x64
