    Re: Is this it?

    Doubt that, noone rates the Disco 3 over the D2 except the people who have it and hope the next repair doesn't write it off. When referring to it being "hardcore" not performance.

    Re: Defender 130 Overlander build

    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.

    Re: Defender D240 or P400

    After having a D4 V8 back in the day I would prefer the P400 as it has similar power to what that had.

    But for overlanding I agree the diesel better suited. I'm still fascinated why they...

    A car, like anything really, is worth as much as someone will pay for it.

    I saw this one on Instagram the other day and really liked it and would be my choice. Looks like a 110 but similar concept.

    Re: Is this it?

    I might buy the 90 when it it is released and our Disco Sport runs out of maintenance plan.

    But thats exactly it, I see it as a replacement for our Disco Sport and not my two orginal Defenders.

    In the same breath you could argue that a 1.4 million Defender does not impress based on the fact that for a million less you can get a Puma and fit 2 Ashcroft lockers so it has 3 diff-locks as well...

    Re: Is this it?

    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.
