Trying to make sense of the range of drivers I have seen in Disco's on the street since its release. Seeing how we have a good sample size of owners here the information that comes out of this could very well represent the overall make up of owners online and offline.

Kicking this off, i'll start with myself:


  • [*]33 year old male
    [*]Financial Advisor
    [*]No kids or pets yet (enjoying my life while I can :D)
    [*]This will be my first LR product, I come from a history of SUV's and CUV's from Toyota, Nissan, Chevrolet and Jeep.


You can include as little or as much information as you like, whatever you're comfortable with.

GO!...

p.s. don't forget to include your age on the poll above

My first LR product, I also have an F-150, but it doesn't fit neatly into street parking and parking structures sometimes.

38 year old male.... Married to a Jamie (hence the jsquared lol)
We have chosen to not have kids so an SUV is not the most ideal vehicle for us but we have so much gear that we normally carry around with us. We have sup boards, kayaks, bikes, wakeboards, camping gear, camera gear and I also transport animals for a few volunteer organizations in my area.

I work in the Aerospace Industry as a Project/Facility manager and and I am from Ontario Canada (Kingston specifically but live in Toronto)

Currently driving a Mercedes Benz sports sedan and anxiously awaiting my 2017 Discovery sport slated to be delivered in May.

40+ year old male, married with 7-year old twins. Work with process improvement (Lean/Six Sigma).

First LR product, but always been a secret admirer... Previous car was/is a 2002 Mazda Protege5 - absolutely love that car and won't let it go yet! This is our first SUV of any brand, and as much as I was pushing for something lower to the ground, the wife wanted the ride height and I had to put my Polestar V90 dreams to rest... But, with growing, active kids, a few camping trips per year, and plenty of trips every year to grandma 400+ km away, we definitely needed a bigger car.

Btw, why is this in Dealers, Purchasing and Ordering???
