    I used to have a car cover and honestly found it to be a complete PITA. In theory a good idea for a whole host of reasons but any time you drive the car it needs to be cleaned. I think when putting...

    I’ve watched a bit of that Inside the K now. Some of the junior Garda are very funny. You need a good sense of humour to deal with what they have to deal with.

    I was amazed by what my Disco 3 could do in the rough stuff. If that Defender can do that or better it’s so far ahead of what someone like me really needs. So I’m not surprised they have focused more...

    I think the question is/was when you already have a Discovery and a Discovery Sport then why make another vehicle like them?

    It seems the Defender has it’s own little niche among all of these,...

    And after having posted that I get ads for the Farmer’s Journal. Brilliant.

    For sure it’s a rebodied Discovery and for sure a Discovery could have done the same trip in Namibia. I didn’t see anything overly challenging there. The fact that there is a plug-in hybrid coming...

    I think Porsche has done more or less exactly that. But perhaps for a different thread.

    What’s negative about a monocoque off-roader, by the way? If they can make it do all the tough stuff, does...

    No but different approaches gives us additional information which is good.

    Ireland has actually taken a fairly relaxed and measured approach. Seeing as we must compare with the UK, sometimes...

    Different places have different conditions and need to do what's right for them. What's happening in Ireland is clearly a lot of "the EU says" which means we apparently don't know what the right...

    No it’s not just luck. Due to circumstances Ireland will not be badly affected by this virus. It’s a function of many things. I wrote it at the start of the thread somewhere and nothing has changed....

    Well in fairness, it’s pretty clear that there is no real leadership. Let’s just take this as an example: we predict 15k cases by the end of the month and have implemented some restrictions...

    I started watching that Inside the K yesterday as a result of this thread so that’s something. Not sure it’s for me but let’s see.

    At some stage I’ll try to reconcile this with your used car salesman career.

    Or the tens of thousands in VRT that it adds to the price...?

    For the Irish market, I’d assume it’s the plug-in hybrid or commercial.
