    Sums it up for me. I find the guys from TFL very fair on their take on it and even more so considering they have ordered one as well.

    Unfortunate but it is the reality. Even worse when you ask them for parts for a 200tdi Discovery 1 :o

    80% of the parts my Disco needed were sourced from Brit-car.

    No its called a Defender to cash in on decades of heritage.:) The design philosophy is so far removed from what the original Defender was about.

    Definitely a 130 in the pictures, the tow hitch is a dead giveaway.

    Rear doors look like they were cut and sealed, can see where the hinges were. The box sits in the second "door' window opening.

    From my understanding that one never had the rear locker. Land Rover should have made it standard considering the Defender is meant to be their off road icon.
