It's nothing like an SVR , even the 2018 MY SVR . The videos that LR produced had a crackle on stationary rev, no idea how they did that. It has a soft limiter at 4 k and there is no drama at all. On hard acceleration you get some cabin sound but that is the resonator system they all use today (Ferrari, Porsche, Mclaren etc ) as the sound is coming from the front of the car , if that makes sense . There are new Eu noise regs so maybe that is the issue , but there is no switchable system as on SVR. There is a new dynamic mode, but it seems to make zero difference to the exhaust. Maybe they wanted this to be ok off road so the idea of a rowdy V8 off road was not desired. It will need a new exhaust to make this car a G63 competitor. It will not attract any G63 owners sounding so poor. I had really hoped it had the G63 giggle factor and be a LR. Some may like this quiet V8 though, not everyone likes a noisy car. Be interesting in what others say. Most certainly there will aftermarket solutions . I was so excited about this car , and have never felt so deflated about a new car in ages. But that was my expectation levels driving that feeling, the lack of any test car videos made it a tough call. But I would have got a G63 had I known.

Other that that, it is very impressive.

Yes Griff, on my drive. The matt film on the grey works very well, the contrast is not huge vs the X models in pangea for example, but it looks very cool. Looks different and the photos do not really highlight the impact of the matt against the gloss black. I like it very much, the car looks very good. The blue used on the front calipers is also a very nice finish.

Photos do not work very well as it tends to darken the overall look. I will try and get the right lighting to show how the gloss contrasts the matt, but so far the images I have done tend to make the matt grey just look dark , so it almost looks black. Will have a go again tomorrow.

I don't think you'll be disappointed Shocked Cool Someone will get an aftermarket exhaust right soon.

Mine is due 2/8, probably not being too noisy is a bonus for some - my wife will be much happier than me !

Urban are already looking at an exhaust so sure it will not be too long 🤞 before there is a noisier option, although it will not be cheap.

On the plus side you can sell your car for more than you paid for it because demand is outstripping supply so if noise is that big a negative sell it & get a G63 but it’s £50k more - they do sound epic - not sure how they passed all the same noise regs as the LR.

In the meantime enjoy 😊 2020 P300 HSE

They need to make an off road inspired SVX V8 because this ain’t it. No roof load and suede cloth interior is just bizarre strategy from JLR for a Defender
