Just placed my reservation yesterday and told that pricing will be out in May, then order needs to be confirmed May for Deliveries starting September in Essex. My dealer had an allocation of 60 until the end of the year and had 50 reservations already. Can't wait to find out more about specs of the different models and pricing as i suspect that i'll be wanting more than the £30k starting price provides!!
Unfortunatley also looks like my dealer will be wringing his hands with pleasure as I will be specing it up a lot!
Dealer phoned me on Friday and confirmed I will have brochure and prices within next two weeks and will then need to get order in by end March for guarenteed September delivery. PCP will also be agreed at order stage. They have asked for another £1000 deposit, that will make £2000 which will then confirm the deal and will not be refundable.
They have confmed they will not have a car for road test until Sept due to the interest from buyers.
£50 k here we come methinks! Never bought a car without a test drive before.
Just to inform you that we
will be in touch very soon with customers who have placed their orders already
i.e. yourself we will have prices and specifications for yourself on the 14<sup>th</sup>
March and the official date to non buyers will be 4<sup>th</sup> April so
you will be way ahead of the official date to place final purchase details.

More news as I get it
Any more from you guys?
Thanks Griff, that's looking great.My dealer has been much less helpful and I placed my deposit in October 2010.
He sent me this email reply when I asked about pricing:
<blockquote ="webkit-indent-blockquote" style="margin: 0 0 0 40px; border: none; padding: 0px;">Yes dealers have recieved pricing but it is officially under embargo sodealers can only discuss it with deposit holders like yourself. It means that I can discuss it with you in the dealership but cannot send or print anyhting out.
It is being released to deposit holders on the 4th April so you should get something by e-mail, I am very busy for the next week (until the end of march so I will be free to see you after the 4th when you have had chance to look at pricing,would that be OK?
This is my first experience with a Land Rover dealer, having had Audis, Mercs and BMWs in the past, andI'm not too impressed so far...
My dealer said the same about the embargo and he could not give me a copy of pricing but I did take notes!
What you see is probably the car I shall get. He could not confirm adaptive cruise control but hopes it would be available. I use it a lot on M25.
I have emailed a load of questions, when I get a replyI'll post anything of interest.
