    This is a stock photo of what i have ordered but i have also added 22" wheels. Iam coming from a string of 3 range rovers over the years so iam hoping i have chosen well.

    Hello and welcome,

    3 Range Rovers... trying to find a good one :rolleyes: or 3 at the same time so there's a chance you might have 1 on the drive that you can use :p:D:rolleyes:

    Various ages and times but had the last one from new and it never missed a beat but lost about £55k in 3 years. Ouch.

    You've been very lucky then - the depreciation isn't bad either over 3 years

    Hi Paul and welcome to the forum. I like Hyacinth Red as well!

    Edit - if you download the “Mercedes Guides” app (on iOS so I assume also on Android) you can then download the handbook for your new car and spend hours learning all about it. :)

    My W213 went from March To July :(

    It was worth waiting for though

    You’ll get a 69 plate as well :):D
