    Interested to know if it will fit the P400. The current solution for 18" wheels offered by Lucky8 requires swapping the rear brake calipers for the calipers from a Discovery 5 SD6 which seems like a...

    Please ignore the haters Orxy. Although some people seem to wish the new Defender did not exist - this thread is actually for posting info on it - and I for one appreciate it.

    If you donít order the 3rd row you get a useful storage area under the boot plus the back seats fold completely flat.

    I like it! Wonder just how expensive it will be though given LR currently charges R80k for a nudge bar and winch.

    No - can get 18" alloys. Unfortunately on the P400 the smallest wheel you can get is 19" due to the size of the brakes fitted. However someone in Dubai has already fitted 18" after-market wheels -...

    Guys have already fitted 33" tyres with only 1" inch lift. So should be able to fit 275/70/R18s giving you a perfectly respectable sidewall of 193mm

    Agreed - I also thing peoples eyes are going to water when they see the price of the Grenadier. It will not be cheap to produce a vehicle like that in small production volumes.

    When things are "normal" they usually don't have a problem selling a customer order to someone else so dealers are usually happy to refund deposits. In the current environment - I"m not so sure.
