    So finally the awful weather cleared up and I got around to fitting the touch steering wheel controls that I had ordered from EuroActive (https://euroactiveparts.com/).

    Re: Dust in Discovery 4 Cabin

    No, that is a bad idea.

    There must be a hole/gap somewhere in the body panel/interior panel that's allowing the dust to come through.

    no, the engine is not started AFAIK: there is an aux heater/cooler that does this.

    this is a legal feature in the EU/US, so pretty sure it is legal here too.

    Re: New Defender - Problems straight out the box...

    you really don't, not in ZA.

    You can buy the base S spec with the D240 engine, 18" steelies, add the rear e-diff, put some ATs on, and you're good to go.

    IIRC, that works out to 1.1-1.2bar, but...

    Re: Fortuner 3.0 vs. Disco 4 SE/HSE

    If you don't need the 7 seats, why not the RRS?

    They are a bit less cranky than the D4, and you then also have the option of going for the SDV8, which is very reliable, and tows effortlessly.

    Re: TLF Bronco vs Wrangler vs LR DEfender

    I watched that section of the clip many times, I'd have taken different lines in my RRS (also on 20s) in both instances.


    Quite unlucky on the second puncture though.
