    For now this is only for USA member's but maybe it is a sign of things to come

    There are two types of people in this world, good and bad. The good sleep better, but the bad seem to enjoy the waking hours

    Don't like that one :?

    Not surprising though, they are probably trying to shake some of the monikers associated with the discovery and LR in general.

    its reads to me it LR thats changing the name,
    it may be that the usa is not in tune with the discovery,
    but you would think LR would show a bit of spine.

    All the talk on discoweb.org suggests that those dyed in the wool US LR supporters are equally peterbed by the rumours. Some even suggesting that Land Rover values ended with the demise of the Series 1 Disco.

    I once ate with some yankers in a restaurant in Italy who couldn't stomach the chicken because it was served whole and not southern fried and the fish because it was served with the head on. They went hungry because thats was all that was on the menu. I was more disturbed by the cigarette butt in my green salad!

    Is this the Ford Syndrome? Provided in any colour you like providing you order black (and doesn't mention the word "Discovery").
