Rare Velar Sightings

I recently just covered 800miles driving up and down the A1 and M6 and during this time I never seen any Velars on the road. Whilst I do like the exclusivity of owing one they are definitely a rare breed on our roads. Is there any reasons why there isn't such a large take up considering how good they look?

Thereโ€™s a fair few round our way. But then again thereโ€™s a lot of JLR procduct in our neck of the woods. Proportionately though there are relatively few Velars compared to FF, RRS, Evokes and Discos.

None of them seem to wave back though, even when the car is identical to mine (as in FE in Corris). Maybe too many years in a Defender on my part ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

They are everywhere where I live (Warwickshire) quite annoying, plus everyone assumes you work for JLR... the only differentiator is that I try to always keep mine glistening
