Is there really a logo change or not?

The inference that I read from some recent signage threads lead me to think that there was an upcoming change in LR USA signage.

The local dealer has no clue about this.

Are we missing something, or am I off base???

I realize that those two choices may not be mutually exclusive

Thanks,


KAA

Just to be clear, it really is only an update of the existing logo. I read it in the latest LRO (the one with the 2013 RR article). And, my local dealer already has the sign, with the updated logo, up.

The logo has changed. Here are 2 pics from the flagship dealer in Paramus, NJ. The grand opening was Wednesday.

They are not giving the old logos away at that dealership...

They have been great to me. I have been there a few times in the past few years.

They let me use the computer to search part numbers, they have bins for RRC and D1 parts. I pilfer them. They did ask me to buy a keychain when I grabbed a bunch of O rings for the AC system....

They love Dunkin Coffee

Funny - I should let you listen to the VM on my phone from Greg there who said he didn't know when the signs would be changing... haha

I was there Wed night. It was a JLR corporate event unveiling the new Jag F-type. Nice looking car and nice/better alternative to a z4 bimmer or MB SLK.

They also had a few 2013 FFRRs on the LR side, a nicely restored NAS 110 they're selling for $128k, a Series I, and a silver ROW 110 that's all kitted out.

As far as the signage, I was wondering if they were ever putting an LR logo above the Range Rover sign...that was not there initially.

Where you there Tom?

I was there. I was the one in jeans with a hot wife. I brought the 110 and may have had a glass of wine in hand.

Article from the event.

For Its American Debut, Jaguar F-Type Gets an Unexpected Chaperone
Ratan Tata, chairman of Jaguar Land Rover, made the trip to Paramus, N.J., for the American debut of the highly anticipated roadster.

Yep. See how he is favoring his right leg? Guess that missing chunk of thigh still hurts.
