I did, about a day after they hit the dealers. Not that impressed - I
find them rather vague which isn't good given the sheer damn size of
them, also the legroom (width, not depth) in the drivers seat is
garbage compared to any of the earlier Discos - I personally find them
somewhat painful to drive - I could if I needed to, but I find my old
200 and the TD5 before that more comfortable.

There are enough "eurgh" points to make me wary of the D3 - I hate fly
by wire handbrakes, having had to use the manual handbrake in the TD5
to save my life when the electronics went mad.

Yay on finding something with a worse turning circle than a 130!

If its going around Bosley very likely doing the brake testing thing.There
are a lot of odd cars wearing bra's doing the circuits up there. Also past
what used to be a very good brake company at Chapel en le Frith(nudge nudge)
I have yet to be quick enough with the camera to get a good piccy

Almost exactly what I'm hoping to have in a few years time. We've got a
1/12th share in a 58' semi-Trad at the moment and are looking to buy
something around 40' in the next 6 months to give us more cruising time
while we look for our ideal boat, if we don't find it in 3 years then
we'll have one built - ideally 58' tug with a Kelvin engine (if I can
find a good one - hens teeth and all that).
