  1. Shot! Been looking everywhere for answers, but you're the only person who knew the difference!
  2. Chaps, I'm looking to get new shocks for my 90 (standard height), and looking at Bilsteins. While looking at prices online, I found two different B6s: the 24-065290 and the 24-002530 (just using the rears as an example). https://www.autodoc.co.uk/bilstein/1043832 https://www.autodoc.co.uk/bilstein/1043491 Does anyone know what the differences are between these two shocks? Also, in the item descriptions, I see there's a 'Parameter' line item - what does this mean, as the parameters are different for the two different shocks? Thanks very much!
  3. MY21 will have 'Intelligent' AWD: "Permanent All Wheel Drive is standard on Land Rover Defender except for those fitted with the new D300 6-cylinder engine. The D300 engine features Intelligent All Wheel Drive for greater fuel efficiency utilizing Two Wheel Drive capability where appropriate."
  4. pot luck, really: we happened upon it drinking at the waterhole, and then it proceeded to relieve itself 😅
  5. Interesting, did not know this until now: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/dana-supplies-high-performing-spicer-advantek-axles-to-new-land-rover-defender-301173193.html?"Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) announced today that the new 2021 Land Rover Defender features Dana's latest Spicer® AdvanTEK® axles, which are designed to deliver improved performance and greater power density in a compact package.

  6. Here's a video of the rains, thunderstorms, and duststorms while we were there:
  7. Here's a video the highlights:
  8. No, it's a 12-yr old Tamron 18-270mm zoom lens on a 13-yr old Nikon D40. But we've realised that we actually need a telephoto lens, thinking of getting the Nikkor 200-500mm one.
  9. A link to the full album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/FqCAMKsR1SX8UJQ86 Videos will be up in a few days
  10. A few of our favourite photos:
  11. Hi evereyone, We just got back from 2400km round trip to the Kalahari desert, where we spent a week on a private game reserve of approximately 1400 sq km. Here's a teaser, will put up some wildlife photos and videos once I've sorted through the thousands of photos we took. Pics taken along the N14, one of the straightest, most desolate roads in ZA
  12. First reviews of the 90 are out:https://youtu.be/vtgEnH5vt0Ahttps://youtu.be/QSnGcBOO-ZI
  13. Accessories & mods coming fast from ARB: "Complete false floor in the rear, with underfloor Revolution lithium battery, HD fuses, @redarc_electronics dcdc solar charger, underfloor storage hatch, @arb4x4 classic 47L fridge, flush mount 12v, USB sockets and towbar mounted mini anderson for solar blanket/charging."
  14. After many months of lockdown, our club finally got to do an outing at a very scenic wine estate just outside Cape Town. A record turnout of 31 vehicles for the event, including 2 new Defenders and everything else in between. A video of the day's events: Some photos:
  15. I think they're going to regret getting that front middle seat instead of the fridge!
  16. ZA review at a local 4x4 trail, with an old 110 accompanying him. I've done this trail once or twice, and it's NOT as easy as it looks, especially seeing that we've had torrential rains in the past few months & weeks.
  17. A short trip to the Cederberg for 3 nights, staying at the really nice Bushman's Kloof Reserve (https://www.bushmanskloof.co.za/). On the way back, we did a little gravel travel to the best winery in the area, Cederberg Wines (https://www.cederbergwine.com/). The itinerary: https://goo.gl/maps/Gi7tqKw6Xqr5fDhi9 Some photos and a video of the trip:
  18. I think the issue is that each TR mode has a specific engine map, so that means different emissions profile. But yeah, this is why my mate struggled the first time off-road - none of us knew about this and just assumed that once he set the TR mode, it would stay there.
