    Rang the TMR a while back, when a Range Rover was listed on the rego renewal form as a Discovery. Bloke on the phone was insisting that it needed to be de-registered, inspected for any evidence of re-birthing, then a whole new rego entry created, which meant RWC inspection, etc.

    Down at the local TMR office, I mentioned it to the lass behind the counter. She asked for the rego number, a few clicks later, she says "Oh, I see what's happened." Apparently in their drop-down boxes, directly above "Land Rover Range Rover", is "Land Rover Discovery", two minutes later, she said, "All fixed, the new rego papers will arrive within a week or two." Amazing!!
    Last time I renewed my licence I asked the woman what the S symbol on it meant. She said it meant spectacles. I said I didnt normally wear or need spectacles to drive and only wore glasses occasionally because they were tinted and reduced glare. She deleted the S on the spot.
    Incidentally my eyes have been tested when buying new glasses, so I wasn't just making that up.

    They are neither 'super' or 'cheap' so how do they get away with the name ?

    Don, just watch those welds on the top of the drawbar.
    i just repaired mine because a friend thought heíd strengthen this area by welding across the top of the drawbar as it passes under the first crossmember. Of course it created a stress raiser and started to crack through.
    it was stored at his work because I didnít have room at the time. A new drawbar fixed by me solved the problem.
    i would just watch it thatís all, I learnt the hard way about welding across the top of a stressed member😒😒😒
    Nice find on the s111ís👌👌👌
