£200ph? That's mental- I only pay £100 ph at porsche! And to be fair if it's over 4 hrs work they drop it to £60 ph
You are a very wise person... I salute you. I can now take a dump from my window whilst hogging the outside lane with complete peace of mind.
Interesting. 3 of the guys at work have one each for almost two years now and aside from a service it has been nowhere near a garage!
Thanks for that Kevin. No need for you to be defensive. Here is the correct link to the document you refer to: http://www.parliament.uk/briefing-papers/SN05060.pdf
It's enshrined in the current EU 'Block Exemption' rules for the motor industry - the same ones which state that anyone who meets the manufacturer's standards can insist on becoming a service dealer (though not a sales dealer - manufacturers still have control over the appointment of sales outlets). In reality most non-franchised dealers buy a generic diagnostic kit from someone like Sun which may not give them all the data. Here's a link to summary of a massive piece of legislation in just 10 pages for you doubters: http://www.parliament.uk/briefing-papers/SN05060.pdf And here's a relevant piece from it: "How will access to technical information for independent repairers be ensured under the new legal framework? Independent repairers are important because they increase choice for consumers and keep the price of repairs competitive by put putting pressure on car manufacturers' authorised repair networks. But for this to happen it is essential that they can get the technical information necessary to do the repairs on increasingly sophisticated cars. Withholding "technical information" will be dealt with directly under Treaty rules on restrictive business practices (Article 101) since, as said previously, the manufacturers, their spare parts and repair shops generally have a market share in excess of 30%. In addition, Guidelines also being adopted contain detailed clarifications as to the notion of technical information, cross-referring to Regulation 715/2007 on type approval of certain cars and all subsequent implementing regulations. The new rules assure access to technical information for models which are type-approved after 1 September 2009. By making a clear link with the 2007 car type-approval Regulation, the Commission will ensure both consistency as regards access to technical information for cars put in circulation before that date and allow the notion of technical information to evolve in line with technical progress. The Commission remains committed to vigorously enforce the rules on access to technical information, as demonstrated in four cases brought in 2007 to ensure that Daimler/Chrysler, Fiat, Toyota and General Motors disclose the necessary information to independent repairers (see IP/07/1332)." Whether you're pro or anti EU I'd still believe their rules in preference to what someone told you down the pub! To be a savvy consumer you need to start by understanding the legal framework within which your (service) supplier is operating. OK? :)

RANGE ROVER SPORT AUTOBIOGRAPHY DYNAMIC £74.995£74,995
Just spotted this deal not sure if anyone interested RANGE ROVER SPORT AUTOBIOGRAPHY DYNAMIC for 75k
That's only because they're stuck in traffic near scum like you, when they're on holiday somewhere decent they have a whale of a time.
Im glad there are people buying cars this expensive, keep us in work but still too much money in the pockets of directors , have you ever noticed the more expensive the car the more miserable they look!
A national dealership.
That is only a " potential " problem, that Honda is addressing and paying for, unlike the BMW one that leaves drivers high and dry. Oh and it is from the Daily Fail, so a pinch of salt needs to be added.(_;)

I see the usual BMW fan boys here spewing their cretinous bile. Nobody gives a toss what you think and we know you're jealous because even Land Rover makes cars that are more stylish than BMW these days! Go crawl back under your rock.

Free Tickets to Range Rover Evoque Preview Event (Manchester 7 Birmingham)

Duggie_22 - It's expired because (as I mentioned above) customer services (at 2x2worldwide) confirmed to me they cannot fulfill my order (despite it still appearing to be available which I pointed out to them)! They have 'had staff search the warehouse' (yes, really!) - It's very poor customer service/relations!
Why expired? Still listed here.
17.5 is quite small, so that will limit the appeal of this deal. Not a bad package at the price, as long as the frame is up to snuff. Plenty of cheap carbon frames out there that ride horribly. Also, it's a 2008 bike (so on the market since about Q3 2007). It was discontinued in late 2009. View it in the catalogue here. Regarding the customer service aspect, the Land Rover branded bikes are distributed by a company called 2x2worldwide - Land Rover only licence the use of the name. Last time I spoke to anyone from 2x2worldwide, he was telling me that a carbon frame's not good offroad because it gets damaged easily - complete nonsense and perhaps the reason they have a pile of unsold bike coming up to their fourth birthday... It's a shame in some ways that some marketing pleb agreed to licence the LR badge. Done well, it would enhance the brand. Unfortunately they're (now) low end bikes which aren't representative of a premium product. The customer service and the level of product knowledge I've experienced from 2x2worldwide doesn't deserve to trade off Land Rover's name.
Sadly, it would appear Land Rovers customer service leaves a lot to be desired! I ordered one of these, had my order status change to 'confirmed', only to receive an email nearly a day and half later that it was out of stock and asked if I would a like an alternative (which was actually a poor offer too!) Such a shame. What makes it worse is the fact it still appears for sale! :(
Hot! Good price if it's in your size.

So, on that measure wouldn't every deal ever posted on here go cold? I'd love to know which deals are true investments and I'll have a few. Who knows, maybe eventually I could afford a Range Rover!
Agreed. Pre-credit crunch a 3 year old Land Rover was worth approx 50% of original price (one of the highest residual values in the business), but I suspect it's plumetted now. But you make a very good point that most consumer goods have virtually zero value once you've bought them.
What's any car worth after you drive it out of the showroom/ after three years, its just that the depreciation on this is more stark because of the original value of the vehicle. Whats a TV worth once you've installed it in your house, whats any fridge worth that you put in your house after three years.......................................... :whistling:
What's this gonna be worth in three years time...sorry what's it gonna be worth as soon as it gets out of the garage ...voted cold
Exactly Shengis, because its cheap! For some this will be cheap(er) than they may have previously thought about paying & so a good deal. But just because some foreign car is cheap, it doesn't make it immediately a good deal In reality, I love cars (I drive a Mini Cooper S Hartge, but drive it as little as possible & used to & now the suns back out will do again, bike the 7.5m to & from work everyday), but disagree with idea that people can buy massive cars & run them into towns with no real reason, other than a kiddy taxi when a different car may well be just as safe or shock horror just send your child/ren (where appropriate) to school on a bus or even dare I say it, let them walk!!!!!! Ok, the world isn't what it used to be or as safe (& I'm only 30ish), but come on, why else would most owners run a range rover in a school except because that fact they're probably a c*ck? We could just raise taxed to £2k for everyone owning one in a city & then set up better park & ride/ bus/ cycle routes for others so you can get into towns without using a car. I just wish people wouldn't vote cold when there's nothing wrong with the deal itself, ok the item isn't great (IMHO, I'm excluding Discoverer users etc that do really need a 4x4), but its still a good deal for those who want one. I also leave the pulpit, me thinks for the last time on this sunject. I'm off to find some superunleaded (yes, that's a whole other debate) fuel!!!!!!!!!
