Looks like a bit of sloppy copying to me from the SD4 line above. AFAIK, Si4 is auto only.


Mark_n I thank you for your comment...the build schedule was taken from a land rover/dealerbuild schedule when it was produced approx 2 months ago...yes agree the manual derivate is not in the current line up as per spec and price list...maybe a bit SLOPPY from my perspective without wanting to mislead or confuse I am human after all ...with any luck LR may well offer a manual derivative at some point..I shall then redeemmyself.

Hi Steve,
Such a shame you sold it - I too had the same problems in my first RRS, and eventually they issued a fix that solved it once and for all. Now on my second (2011) RRS, I've had a couple of minor faults - both sensors. Reliability's better, Build Quality is better, Ride is better - can't wait to get the Evoque as LR really have put reliability issues of the past behind them.

Thank's metane boy great news on build quality for the evoque 2 months and counting

Jaguar promised the same thing before I took delivery of my first XF in March 2008. Unfortunately quality control missed a number of obvious build faults when my car came off the line, which took several visits to the dealer to sort out.

<blockquote ="webkit-indent-blockquote" style="margin: 0 0 0 40px; border: none; padding: 0px;">Hi Mortz - I have purchased a Dynamic SD4 - do you know if the dual view touch screen comes with the analogue/digital TV - or do you need to add on the TV option.</blockquote><blockquote ="webkit-indent-blockquote" style="margin: 0 0 0 40px; border: none; padding: 0px;">

Hi Dual View comes with Analogue/Digital TV as standard
You can also select ATV/DTV as a stand alone option if you wish

My fellow humans

I need to advise you on asking me for quotations for the Evoque

I suggest you contact your supplying dealer for finance figures

I am sure they can show you the best ways of funding ....there are no " special offers " on offer for the evoque...you may find companies out there that will offer good or competitive rates....unfortunatley this is not my remit...my role is simple........to create desire for the evoque ....not to number crunch...........land rover finance work off the same sheet no matterwhere you have ordered your evoque








I do however thank you for your questions and seeking a little guidance on the issue of funding your special purchase

Hi Mortz


Are you able to provide information regarding the surround camera please? The Evoque is going to be the widest vehicle I have ever driven, and to be upfront, I am not good at parking (always have to open the door to see how close I am to the kerb). Is this worth the money, would I be able to see the kerb on the drivers side (can use wing mirror for the passenger side). Your advice would be much appreciated.



Thanks

As you can maybe tell by the date of the last post, he is long gone. He was a saleman in Swanseabut we were all so optimistic about this car before the dealer launch, since when it's been a succession of supply disappointments.


In reply to your question, I added surround camera late to my specification because of the width of the car and relative lack of visibility and also after seeing the cameras on a Disco 4. When in London, I park in an underground car park and the spaces are the "regulation" 2.4m wide which is barely wide enough to park the Evoque and get out, especially in the coupe which has longer doors which take up more space. The surround camera will be pretty much essential to park the car tightly against a concrete wall so that I can get out.



There are cameras in each of the mirror housings looking down and providing an excellent view of where the wheels are against the kerb. There's the reversing camera and two (I think) sideways facing cameras at the front. It's the cameras in the mirrors which will save your alloys though.



In summary, the reversing camera is an absolute must, IMHO and the surround camera system will help (providing you use it of course) avoid expensive visits to the body shop and wheel refurbishers.

Hi Mark


Thanks for your advice. I had not looked at the date of the last post.



I too park in an underground car park, my space is next to a pillar, and it is tight. My main problem is parking near to kerbs though! The reversing camera is standard, but I was unsure about the surround camera system as I had read somewhere it is quite slow. Have you found this to be the case please?



Again, thanks for taking the time to reply.
