It's not just Land Rover - all new cars are going the same way. Just be thankfull they aren't HID bulbs - they cost £500 each!!!
On some new Vauxhalls you can change the bulb easy enough but it won't work until you connect up a laptop to tell the computer it has had a new bulb fitted!!!
On Smart cars changing a headlight bulb is quoted as 2 hours - and they don't have a sump plug to drain the oil.
Some new French cars need a laptop to open the rear calipers to change the brake pads.
The list is endless - it is obviously being done to scam more money out of the drivers but they get away with it by saying it's "progress"!!!
