    Did anyone check if the panels lined up. I recall seeing a video on Facebook I think where the guy pointed out issues in the panel gaps and them not lining up properly.

    I saw a couple of them on the back of car carrier coming out of our Corporate Park this afternoon. I know JLR have offices and a training facility here.

    Couldn't get a good look at the front, but the back and the lights is something to get used to.

    Now that's funny! I assume it'll then be reported on negatively.

    Saw one today as it went out for what seemed like a test drive at LR Sandton.

    Looks better in the flesh.....Hope to test drive one over the next couple of days

    Managed to snap it before it left

    Saw one in the flesh today. What a beast. I'll buy one if I had the dough. Was not allowed to take snapshot or two though......Thursday we are allowed to.

    Don't hold your breath about quality issues: chap in Scotland got his new one last week, and it already leaks due to panel gaps

    Still very much on the fence about getting one.

    I bought a 130 for Overlanding and am really enjoying driving the truck with its rattles and all. I may buy this for my road car and soft trips where we will not be camping as it is not an Overlander as much as I would like it to be. Ive been sent pictures from a sales man at Waterford where they have arrived also but he says no test drives yet.

    Will drive it and then make my final decision.

    ps. I will never step foot in LR Sandton again after my last purchase there. Those flippen idiots didnt even bother cleaning the D4 I was collecting, took me less than a minute to see the GPS screen was not working as it was flashing and looked like a TV off channel and yet they supposedly do a check on the vehicle, the plastic covers the mechanics use on the seats were thrown in the back and the steering and dash was full of grease finger prints. I also arrived there at 10am as arranged and finally only left after 1pm as the car was not ready. I then complained to the DP and the PR lady and have yet to have a response from them 3 years later. Its ok, they have lost 3 range rover, 2 D5 and a Evogue sales as well as the other vehicles I have bought because of it.

    Test drives only from official sale date (I think they said I could only drive the one I ordered on the 9th of July).

    The blue one in Menlyn was the same pre-production model they used on the reveal.
