Range Rover Evoque

Saw a 3-door and a 5-door Evoque test mule at our dealer today.

They were on the way to International Falls, MN for climate testing.

Sat in the 5-door...the seats were really comfy.

The 3-door was a manual with a TDI...too bad we will never see that...

will they freak to see you posted pics?

glad to see, I guess if they sell well and it increases the brand here that is cool. Not really where I would put that kind of cash if I had it.

I just felt like typing penis, although I will say that I don't neccesarily type penis in my threads too often and there shouldn't be any concern that this will happen again in the near future.

So much for Heritage... that shit box is in production soon! Land Rover sold us out.... to the Paris Hilton's... the Pimp daddy's.... the rich bitch soccer mom's.

And they don't even go wheeling... how the hell do like that shit.

I'm a little pissed off actually..... the worst part is that I've been told by more than one person that Land Rover has destroyed warehouses full of RR classic and Disco I and in some cases Disco II parts!

Came across a white Evoque in my neighborhood today. The GDE had to pull up for some intimidation!

I would hope rover would have not scrapped good land rover parts. The direction they have taken has been quite a shock to me. It would be interesting to know the percentage of the people buying the new actually use them offroad

That evoque is a huge pile

Thanks JL! Those 110 NAS steels really work well on a white RRC.
