If you don`t prefer the new Land Rover Discovery`s offset plate no fret, because one tuner that goes by the name of STARTECH Refinement has the solution. According to Land Rover engineer, Gerry McGovern, the new Land Rover Discovery`s rear-end is designed that way because of the type of plates being fitted. Apparently, he blames the larger number plates which are complete with the EU/GB emblem that are being installed by UK dealers.
He says that this is what makes the new SUV look weird and not the strange offset placement. However, to be frank, we remain unconvinced and also a little bemused by the statement. Fortunately for all Land Rover Discovery owners, the aforementioned tuning company from Germany has a way more convincing fix.
Now, the question remains, what`s their solution? Well, STARTECH Refinement wants to do what`s right and reposition the number plate to the center where it should`ve been all along. The German tuning company excitedly named this solution – Discovery of symmetry! Pretty funny! This neat little insert is going to be available from the beginning of next year for a relatively reasonable $959. The tuning company also released pictures on how the number place placing looks before and after the tuning.
We think it`s a massive improvement. However, there are many people out there who think the offset doesn`t look that bad. However, if you think it looks bad, then you can`t say you don`t have a solution. Now, offset number plates or not, the new Land Rover Discovery is a great commercial success.
