I sense a bitter Land Rover experience Ian. I hope they prove you wrong, at least we'll look cool waiting for the AA to turn up.

I am not sure what the systems are on the Evoque, but the dealer played me the M system and it was very, very good. Even moving it sounded great.

He then played me the other system, there must be three as he said it was the upgraded system between the basic system and the Meridian.
It sounded OK, but nothing more than OK.

Meridian system will be a joy every day, a panoramic roof is a pain in the arse.
I have had two now on various cars, both ended up with squeaks and both used to fry you on sunny days. They are alright on cloudy days and do let more light into the cabin but just buy a lighter interior.

I had the one on our 535d sport touring replaced after 25k miles, and then it started squeaking again at 40k miles and they replaced the seals.

I wouldn't buy a car with one again.



No Darling, I've had it months!

Oops!! Missed the second page, sorry!

Meridian sounded crap, a pano roof on the other hand is a must have. blush
