Re: Do I Cancel?

Velar and M2 are totally different cars and driving experiences so make your decision on which type of vehicle you want to own/lease. BMW are hardly paragons of reliability: when you read the ownership surveys most of them put BMW well down the league table of owner satisfaction and reliability. To ...

Re: "SERVICE REQUIRED" - 3600 miles in D300 engine

I thought the problem discussed by user J77 only applies to the transversely-engined models, not the Velar.

Re: Velar D240/D300 vs GLE350D

There seems to be a feeling in the posts here that buying a Merc will be free of problems but that’s not necessarily the case. All the major makers except Lexus and possibly Infiniti can suffer serious trouble. For example the steering crabbing on right-hand-drive GLC models is well documented on th...

Re: Experience of using Stratstone?

Haven’t used Stratstone but some comments on the PCP. I don’t own a Velar but am considering one and am interested to look at the costs involved in PCP. The main one is that it’s based on 6000 miles a year whereas you said you do a lot of miles. Crunching the numbers, if you do an average 12000 mile...

Re: How long does it take for your driver license to arrive? (UK)

When my photocard license was updated on two different occasions it took 3 to 4 days. The first time was for change of address, the second time was when it expired - they only last 10 years - and it was renewed using the photo I'd supplied for my passport.

Re: Car on hold

It's all to do with the new WLTP testing. They can't sell cars until the model is certified and there are delays in the certification procedures. Other makes and models are affected too.

Re: Air suspension

It varies by trim and engine in the UK. It used to be that the V6 engines came with air suspension but that's no longer always the case. For example the base model has coils as standard. It may well vary depending on which market it's being sold in. While we're talking about it, what's the view of a...

Re: V6 Supercharged not available in UK?

The P380 isn't available in the UK because (they say) it can't be made to meet the latest emission regulations

Re: First Time Range Rover Prospect...

Have you considered the new electric Jaguar I-Pace. Great looking car, comparable in many ways to the Tesla 3 although not sure about the pricing in the US.

Re: First Time Range Rover Prospect...

All cars can have problems, including the usual suspects. On another forum I read someone agonising over whether to reject his Porsche Macan. My recommendation is to go for the car you really want. If it's a Velar you can tell us on this forum about your experiences once you have it.
