    Default New Defender arrived today

    So I was at my local dealership this morning and in comes a truck with two new Defenders on the back, had a look inside and wow, inside is retro as can be.
    Like the materials they used, I actually like the car. Both were 240 SD Models, Funky as it can probably be for a 4x4. It puts the Fj second in line now for the most retro looking modern weird but cool 4x4 SUV.

    The latter series 2018-2020 Land Rovers all took a very long while to grow on me, some still not sticking completely.
    I believe this one in particular will take a very long while.

    Dankie tog smaak verskil.
    Iím more appreciative towards a boxy retro look.

    My local dealer (N1 City) should receive their first ones tomorrow. I'll be there to have a look.

    My only concern is the kids start to expect me to take along bicycles and other random crap, so the uncomfortable d/c bakkie market is drawing me in.....

    Is it just me or is it much bigger than the Discovery standing behind it?

    Now imagine that with good old solid front and rear axles...
    If Force is not the solution, not enough of it was applied....

    Can only imagine how difficult or near impossible it will be to kit that thing like Defender owners always did / wants to

    I am thinking engine bay and interior, not to even mention outside...

    Definitely won't be doing customization on this beast..

    For example - I've removed the rear seats in my 90 and am building storage compartments for overland trips which fit onto the seat brackets. No way you would even want to do this in the new Defender... you would lose megabucks on resale value immediately..
