When I looked out of the window this morning and saw a covering of snow, I let out a little “Yay” knowing that I have a car that can handle it [emoji16]

I’ve been doing a snow dance today to try and get some of the white stuff down south for the very same reason! :D

I also have a love/hate relationship with my car. I drive a fully loaded D240 (HSE with rear screens, TV etc etc) and versus eg a Porsche Macan, it's just way cheaper, and a Range Rover is a better brand than a BMW or Audi. Also, I buy cars that give me the look-back smile when I walk away from them, pretty personal but the Velar does that for me. I'd like a softer ride though - I recently rented a Mercedes E class when I travelled for business recently and I envied the softness.

Just competed a Velarescue of my daughter who uni is now closed. Shropshire to Dartmouth, then Falmouth. Back to Dartmouth then Shropshire. Next day Shropshire to Falmouth and back to pick up the rest of her stuff. Nigh on 20+ hours driving. Car never skipped a beat. Packed to the gunnels on two of the legs.

Fast. Comfortable. No back ache.

Not many cars I’d do this in other than a Disco TBH.

LOL. Was a nice place too be for that long too. I love driving and I love the mixed nature the Velar offers.

Totally get what you mean. I love driving and have discovered I love driving my Velar than almost any other car I’ve driven. Probably why I’ve used up most of my yearly quoted miles at the 6 month point already!

Yeah my miles seem to be creeping up. Now B back from Falmouth they will go dramatically down again though ;)
