or not.

2016 Disco Sport HSE Lux with some black pack looks/options.

In my Evoque, the child window locked did just that. The Discovery does that plus locks the back doors so they can't be opened from the inside but can from the outside if the key fob is nearby or its unlocked.

Eco mode flattens out the jumps in acceleration much like snow mode does but in different ways.

I ordered one of the MPG and HP boosts chips and will install it this weekend.

I have every option you could get on the car in mid-Jan but only the 2016 & 1/2s can get the auto parking, HUD, and camera package. All of which are in my manual. The kick to open the hatch is also in my manual but not supported on my car. I'm curious if any Americans have any of this yet.

2 stage locking is irrelevant if you have passive locking/unlocking and the FOB on you.

The interior center dash down to the cup holders is as cheap as any low end car. They should've extended the leather from the doors/horizontal dash down that column. I'm looking at modifying it maybe with the leather trim with red thread. My Evoque was much better in quality and refinements such as that and padded inside door storage. Hopefully the aftermarket catches up soon.

The TAG attachment is low budget. Really, just the two set screws vs most cars and their four machine screw connectors? This bugs me a ton. It appears there may be an option for some tag mount with 4 holes (2 round, 2 square) that are hidden behind the tag. Maybe that's an option i just missed but i only have the two screws at the top.

The little round section between your cup holders is intended to hold Red Bull size thin cans.

The rubber matting is a poor substitute for Weathertech and the hatch mat has to be cut for anchor points and width for proper fit.

Good feedbacks.
What chip did you order I'm curious. I run on one too myself.
This was completely on a whim as i looked for aftermarket accessories. I know there's another that cost $800 someone here is happier with but for $70, i can risk it :)


It SAYS no mechanical experience needed.

that someone is me :)


interesting. will you keep us updated with this chip? I wonder which sensor does this tap into?
There wasn't much info on Amazon and I haven't had the time to research it. How much HP did you gain?

I don't know. I can't say until I run the car on dyno. But I can tell you it does pull a lot harder. Rides smoother too. No more lag. Normal D mode feels like S mode. It's definitely quicker than before

Do you have any of those other things like life gate etc?

I am going to put flaps on it too

@banks, what's life gate? No mud flaps in mine

@zombie, love the tuning box. No issues at all. Just recently installed power pedal too. With the cat back exhaust the car really kicks ass.

Must be a autocorrect on my iPad. "Auto lift gate" by kicking behind either back tire. The manual lists sensors there to kick the gate open.


What's a power pedal?

I see. no, don't have it.


power pedal is a chip you install on the gas pedal to increase throttle response. it is great for the low end pick up as you step on the gas at a stop the car just takes off.
