    I was looking for the L405 section but couldn't find one. Now I'm lost in the Evoque section and don't know what to do. Do I buy a dress and lop off my tackle or buy a set of curling tongs and a pair of scissors? Help!

    It's ok , there is a rescue service, provided by L405 owners.




    Problem is there is no way to contact them. Due in no small part to there being no L405 section!

    In the meantime, buy a dress but keep your tackle. It's certainly more acceptable than the ejoke.

    I just wanted to laugh at people who paid 10 times as much as me for ten times the number of repairs at 10 times the price. ;-)

    It's not for me. It's for a, er, friend. He's just interested, that's all. Curious, perhaps.

    The ejoke is NOT recognised by ANYONE WHO RESPECTS the Green Oval as a Range Rover - it will never be a Range Rover - it cheapens the brand, takes away from all it stands for and is just a fecking joke - Call it the Land Rover Ejoke, fair enough I will accept that, but as a Range Rover - Never......

    I have even tweeted JLR several times about this and told to stop ruining the brand - they have yet to respond (obvs - probs because they know I am right...:D)

    I remember the early Range Rover marketing :-
    “Range Rover by Landrover “
    Ejoke should be same
    Ejoke by Landrover if they have to badge it at all :rolleyes:
    But should never ever ever be called a Range Rover :mad:
    Makes my p*** boil every time I see one

    Whilst I totally agree with all the comments about cheapening the brand etc. when are you guys going to realise that JLR is a global manuf. who designs & markets vehicles that people will buy … ok so most of them are knobs, but they BUY Ejokes & that not only lines the shareholder's pockets, it keeps thousands of workers in employment.
    It's lamentable that JLR don't give a damn about the brand's history or enthusiast's opinions, but that the way the world is today :mad:

    nb: I see that Rockingham raceway is to close at the end of this season & become yet another storage facility for the new cars that other manuf. flood the market with & can't sell.

    I think I speak for all of us, on here, that detest the ejoke, when I say , we know all that. However, LZ is a 'safe space', where we can vent our dislike of the cheapening of a marque. I think, might be wrong, that most of us would have left JLRs little pander toy, to it's school run owners, had JLR called it a Land Rover Evoque. However, putting the Range Rover branding on it, whilst appealing to these who want the name but not the price, cheapened the JLR flagship. Rather than a vehicle to aspire to , it is now aligned with just another estate car.
    You may notice, the Velar does not get the same venom, possibly because it is not a cheap , little, school run, 2 wheel drive, estate :)





    Steps down from Speaker's Corner and sits on my soap box ;)
