Hello all small update .. so after a few days ownership we have identified 3 defects

  1. Door paint defect as already highlighted and discussed
  2. The front tow eye bolt cover retaining plastic trim has been damaged so does not seat correctly plus look at all that damage and scratching to the bottom recess
  3. Front driver seat 5 white dots in the perforation .. lack of leather die in the manufacturing process
so nothing big but enough to take some shine of our long wait and expensive purchase .. so back to the dealers

Big favour can some one on the newer model pop open their front tow eyebolt plastic cover and take a couple of pictures .. as I am sure ours is damaged by heavy handling in the delivery process or PDI .. who knows

Have you tried poking a cocktail stick in the holes in the leather. Mine used to look like thak if the leather treatment I used stuck in the holes.

Hello another thing we have a noticed (not a defect but a positive)
there is no external SIM card .. as when I checked the standard features it indicates a data plan with embedded SIM ??? but this was one of the options available to me when we configured the car but did not tick the box. Seeing ours is a MY23 model assuming this is now standard as the new Evoque brochures are not out yet when you go to the main RR site ? and when checked today sure enough we have a 4G signal with 02 🤷‍♂️
Standard features below .. so assuming at some point this would expire with a option to extend ??

We have an embedded sim in ours, for the pro services apparently, live traffic and WiFi hotspot

yes that's the same as mine ... online data plan is only for a year although they have extended it for some that just come to the end of their of first year ... I just hope they continue to do that as long as Dec lol ... but have a feeling they will probably stop it soon .... I'll dive out for you and take a pic never actually looked at it I must admit so that'll be new to me as well lol

Edited to add that I can't actually pop mine open ... and if I force it I might break the clips and Mr A is not here .. sorry another day ...

The Online Pack with Data Plan has been included as standard with at least MY21 cars onward (S models and above). It was previously described as a One Year Data plan but when renewal date arrived the renewal date was extended and eventually the expiry date disappeared from InControl account records. I suspect the optional extra to which you refer was a 3 year data plan with WiFi Hotspot that allowed several devices to use the embedded sim in the car for streaming music/video etc.

@Angel beat me to it by a millisecond:LOL:

That will do nicely if you are jump starting the car. If you are just charging or putting a maintenance charge to the battery you can connect directly to the positive and negative terminals of the battery as the official Land Rover accessory does. The instructions can be found here. LAND ROVER ACCESSORY FITTING INSTRUCTIONS
Go to the vehicle care tab.
The battery conditioner is just a rebadged ctek. Don’t use the battery regeneration mode. It takes the voltage above 15volts and the cars systems don’t like that.

Hello Kron .. You can see the improvements in the suspension and ride quality etc .. I think some of the touch screen menu's are a little bit of a faff
The light switch is a silly design .. sometimes we improve things for the sake of it. Also strange the petrol filler cap does not lock (my F Type does?) .. what else .. err no CD player :ROFLMAO: .. plus on the whole still prefer the design of the generation 1 model if I am honest.
shame I could not spec what we wanted .. but in LR defence Ukraine and COVID have not helped with this

on start up nothing unusual that I have noticed .. ???
