  1. Before I became happy I used to be miserable. Now I am happy that 110 would still make me miserable, why? Products, other than refrigerators and deep freezers, that use the "cool" word for marketing is beyond contempt.
  2. That's easy: Enough to make the vehicles appear higher up in the reliability ratings.
  3. Well whatever, it's still all urinating in the wind until they eventually get around to unveiling the damned things and then sheeple start laying out their cash in order to be real world test pilots for and on behalf of JLR. Mind you Defender production ended [after how many years was it?] but the last model was still full of known issues such as gear to transfer box intermediate shaft splines failing just in gereral UK road use etc.
  4. Very true. Wait a while and I'm sure a certain Mr Packham will be sticking his oar in...
  5. This long, long, drawn out peek a boo, drip, drip, drip of a debut is a real turn off. Nothing but BORING [to me] marketing bull-hype which does not excite me in the least, it's akin to a kids game and with that display JLR are doubtless hoping it has created an air of expectation and desire among the wannabe bush hat / canvas with leather trimmed man-bag crowd. Pathetic.
  6. In the interests of sexual equality perhaps it would be a good idea to demonstrate that it appeals to ladeeeeeez too? 😁
  7. Hardly ever see a Morris 8 or 10/4 these days too.
  8. I'm not contributing to this until I know what the prize is!!😁
  9. Oh well just me then, but I've always been a bit special πŸ˜›
  10. Seriously, deep down didn't we know all along that it was going to end up looking Skoda Yeti-esque with a JLR family front end nailed on and a bit bigger in size?
  11. 33 pages of conjecture and speculation on on and such is the dearth of solid info on the real thing it's now down to discussing Lego models in the hope that they look a bit like what the real thing will. Funny old world.
  12. Oh what! You mean the dusty alarms in A&M aren't going to burst into life as everyone out here legs it to the middle of the playground shouting Fight! Fight Fight! Boring πŸ™„
  13. So, does the panel think that the new Defender will have soft touch knobs and switches so as not to cause undue roughening of sensitive fingertips?
  14. Wow it's been a long while since we had a bit of rough and tumble on here <rubs hands in anticipation of handbags at dawn>
  15. Indeed, but enquiring minds always needed to discover how the axles were held in place...
  16. Yeah but according to The Jetsons we should all have hover boards and flying cars that ran on some imaginary force by now. I feel so cheated so I'm off to watch Born Free which at least had proper Land Rovers and 🦁
  17. Then we are in accord and all is well with the world😎
  18. Ah, but you, and others here it seems, are making the assumption that JLR are intent on producing utility vehicles that would sit well and be useful in the commercial bracket. I would suggest the trends over recent years prove the opposite seems to be the case. Videos of university gap year and charity types in shorts slipping oversize tracking collars over the necks of tranquillized lions after negotiating dusty trails in a road biased vehicle is simply a marketing ploy to tap into 'heritage', it does not prove that the company is in the least bit interested in returning to building true utility vehicles that can be fixed by hammer weilding beardy blokes 20 years hence.
  19. I think RedLineMike's comments were of a humorous nature and should be treated in that manner.
