Three weeks ago, I've placed an order for the HSE in Nambic orange, full dynamic pack, .... Delivery is expected mid-January and although I will need a tow bar in the future, I've ordered without, as I HATE the size of the factory hitch and the HUGE bumper cut-out. European models are factory delivered with a detachable hitch that keeps the looks intact (e.g. catalog # VPLRT0171) => I've been in contact with "Stealth hitches" regarding after-market alternatives and here's their response:
"...The Discovery is on our list to develop. We do not yet have the relationship with the local dealer. Our plan is to develop it in January unless a local customer brings their vehicle into our shop in Sugar Hill (Atlanta) GA before then for a hitch. I would be happy to keep you posted on our progress.
If you post on forums and need the hitch earlier, please suggest that someone in our area to call us and we will offer a very good deal to allow us to use their vehicle for final measurements and fitment confirmation.
Thank you for the interest!...."
