    Re: Newbie advise please

    The FL1 is the worst vehicle land rover has made by far......a bottomless pit. There are even some land rover mechanics that refuse to work on them.

    Re: Defender 110 2005 - Air con fan worn

    Hi Richard

    British 4x4 in pretoria sell an uprated fan, slightly more noisy but hardly noticeable at speed. Maybe give them a shout and have one couriered down. Last I checked it was less than R5k
