    I think the clever engineering bit was in the context of keeping quality up and costs down..

    Thoughts and musings on the new defender

    To accommodate your boredom : He’s a billionaire pharmaceutical who loves Land Rover Defenders. He thinks there is still a need for basic, repairable, capable, utility vehicles - as the Classic Land Rover’s came to be Hes spoken to JLR and they’ve both acknowledged that JLR don’t. He believes with clever engineering it can meet modern safety requirements, be made to last, be reasonably priced and be super capable at the same time - and he plans to make them.

    We seem to have strong opinions - but I’m not certain people are really disagreeing are they? 😳

    What axle innards does the 70th Anni Defender use?

    We have someone from Bowler on here don’t we ...?

    1.2 is what you want. Providing that Disco box has the Centre Differential Lock on it - you’ll be fine.

    The dreaded SS Exhaust subject

    Custom exhaust do seem a bit of a mine field. Someone I know of used poweflow and that was fine, and they do offer a guarantee .... I have heard of some of these places using steel flanges as @Maverik said - also plain steel wire so the welds rust, I’ve even heard of 2nd hand parts being used with just a shiny new end pipe sticking out of the back. I expect you need to see what’s around you and go and have a look - armed with some questions.

    Where have all the Niva's gone?

    @Simon_CSK Thanks for sharing 😊👍🏻

    I think 1.2 works better with a more powerful engine. One of the most useful changes for me was in coming out of junctions - with the taller gearing I could clear more road before needing to change up and that felt loads better.

    I have a map and get 30mpg. I fitted a 1.2 transfer box - but measured next to no difference in mpg, though I much prefer it.

    The freelander went when they worked out they could up the trim level, label it as a Range Rover, and get a much greater margin on it.
