    Defender Re: ASPW's analysis of the New Defender

    Some vehicles within a brand have more character than others. The Range Rover Classic has character in spades but the P38 not so much. I would say the same about the D1 vs the D3 onwards.

    Re: Jaguar/LR really?????????

    I think Girling first used ABS but on aircraft and Jaguar first put disk brakes on cars, also from aircraft.

    Stand to be corrected, but I think it was Girling with ABS.
