    l could actually justify one of these for my business, they are by far the cheapest option, the D200 90 is over £10,000 less than the cheapest SUV version.

    However, l called my local dealer today and the waiting list is nearly two YEARS if l order now.

    And that's for the more expensive D250 version, £3,000 more for an extra 50bhp.

    (Superchips will remap the D200 do
    250bhp for £300)
    As far as l can tell the engines are the same 3.0 twin turbo diesel, the difference being software.
    But the dealer won't even take an order for the D200 it has to be the D250 which in base specification is £48,000

    Looks like it's out of the question for me, too many people spending their covid grants on toys by the looks of it to have a waiting list that long.

    There's certainly plenty of people tooling around in them here.

    Do you have to pay the price it will be sold for in 2 years time, or is the price fixed at time of ordering? I guess it could be sold on at a good profit when you take delivery.

    I will find out, if that's the case then it will partially explain the waiting list.

    Approved used? People will be getting tired of taking them back to the dealers by now and will want rid for something decent.

    Used are being sold for thousands over list, often by speculators who have clogged up the waiting lists with their deposits
