Spoiler alert: it's still ugly.

Took a picture, but didn't really focus on taking a good picture while driving :P

I'd be less embarrassed for LR if it was... but alas. Most definitely the D5, offset rear plate and all. I think my eyes developed a little bit of cancer.

I'm not going to take the car I was driving into proper wilderness, my driveway is bad enough :lol:

Well indeed, I think my dry SOH got miscommunicated there! :)

Is there a term for that sort of slightly-trashy-but-trying-to-be-suave-but-overall-too-glossy-until-it-finally-misses-the-point style of automotive design usually favoured by Asian car companies trying to move upmarket but unable to understand terms such as "style" and "restraint"? (So that a 30-year-old Jaguar still looks classy and refined in comparison.) If not, then a word should be coined to describe this move by JLR into further suburban mediocrity.

Yeah, spotted one last Saturday and the width of the roof compared to the width of the bottom looks all wrong and the offset number plate is wrong.

Ghastly looking thing, I've put a pitchfork in the back of the 90 in case one comes near.
