Not yet, the pipe is only about 3 years old and still in good condition.
Although the silicon ones are nice and blue Smile

Considering a larger intercooler though.....
Allisport have a couple of nice products. Will look around locally and see what else is available

South Africa 2009 Discovery 3 TDV6 GS Manual Stornoway GreyDiscovery 3

Thumbs Up Blue is cool, I can sent you one if you like via family courier in Sept? Like the new wheel colour will go well with blacrock sliders!! She look stunning after the vallet,I Would love to hear that exhaust upgrade in action! I'm not a big fan of tinted windows but could work on you cool blue machine, 2nd and 3rd row?
 A few mods... and keeping it all running...Faultmate MSV2

Thanks Smile
Been thinking about the tint, with the objective being to hide whatever's in the boot from prying scroaty eyes. Not sure about the 2nd row though.
I am also looking for a solid cover for the boot, something like what's in the FFRR. I reckon I could make something fairly impenetrable if it hasn't already been done

Still want to see what you do for DRL.

I bought a set of Phillips DRL (not OEM) and are still undecided.

I installed "bee sting" 1/4 wave VHF antenna on the boot-lid,


I like the wheels.... Thumbs Up

yes the DRL's are bothering me. Haven't figured out what to do yet. I need to spend a couple hours in a deck-chair staring at the front of the vehicle.
I still haven't decided what to do with the headlights in general. Want to remove the orange but perhaps also mask the silver bits cos thats the last of the bright stuff on the whole car

got a bunch of 55W HID's on the way, for the main beam, dipped beam and fog lights, maybe after that I will use the fog lights as DRL. lets see

Blue silicone intercooler pipes fitted Smile

And a new alternator. Did it myself. Not a big job actually.

The HID's arrive tomorrow. Yes, 6 x 55W. That should be interesting.....
