    Re: Discovery 4 - petrol vs diesel

    besides the diesel vs petrol bill, the main advantage of the V8 over the T/SDV6 is that any issues with the V8 can be fixed pre-emptively, whereas there is no known predictor for the crank going bust...

    no V8 planned that they've advertised, but I wouldn't be surprised if they release an SVR in a couple of years - probably with the BMW 4.4 V8 turbo that is going into the next RR/S.

    yep, all the Ingenium engines are Euro6 spec, so DPF and AdBlue as well IIRC.
