Oh - Insurance
This is a copy of my post from the D5 forum, and relates to my D5, but probably an issue for D4/D3 drivers as well:
Just got an email from LV about my insurance renewal in March:
Over the past few years, there’s been an increasing rise in thefts of the LAND ROVER Discovery SE SDV6, which you may be aware of via articles in the press. The costs associated with insuring these vehicles are something we can no longer sustain without making changes to the way we price for them. Even though you may not have made a claim for vehicle theft, there is a higher chance of theft for this particular type of vehicle.
The large increase in the number and cost of claims we’ve received for these vehicles has meant we’ve made the difficult decision to increase our pricing for them. This will have an impact at your next renewal date on 10 March 2021.
Doesn't look good Looks like I will be looking for a new insurer in March. Bit of a shame as we have a multicar policy with them, so probably need to re-home the others as well.
Does it make any difference that mine doesn't actually have keyless entry? I thought that was the weak link?

Sadly, that is only model 2019 and newer!!
I am shocked that LR haven't retrofitted the new tech in the older models years!!
