    So 4 a day then?
  2. Yes ha e been on it a year but not many defender 110s
  3. Everything I have read says 5kw will soot up amd 2kw is the way to go, it is more about where to fit as I have a van back type.
  4. Why would I want a 5kw, it will soot up being run on low all the time.
  5. Anyone know if it is possible to fit one if these cheap 2kw chinese heaters in the empty space under the drivers seat in a 110?

    Where have all the Niva's gone?

    All the plastic trim was originally a UK importer fit item thatvif my information in correct then was taken up back in the motherland as they liked it, the original UK 1.6i came in basic Husser trim amd then the pladtic clad Cossack trim ib the latter they gave you a ciggy lighter socket too! My mate Paul's started rusting under the plastic while still under warranty! Mentally good off road though! I had p and n reg ones, my minter was a late Cossack, never actually drive that one though as sold it before I got around to fixing the starter motor. Nearly brought an 03 just back in 05 but lhd.

    Where have all the Niva's gone?

    When Alan Bird (Scotlands Mr, Lada) retired there was a guy teying to bring them into the UK but only in LHD someone told me a couple of years ago they still can bring in them but not as new cars and in the £1000s so no market, used to love my little Ladas but in reality they were **** when not off roading! Horrible on road. Near me there is an undulating 40mph road my 30th old landy takes with a rattle, in the Lada anything over 30pmh made me feel sick, even in the 1.7i it struggled with even a humpback bridge 😄 Forget towing! Snow was fine but hit muddy water in anything above -1 and the thin rad holes would cause it to overheat back on the road and rad was hard to clean. About 26mpg in what was nit much bigger than a 70s mini and just as sparse! Fun little motors for short journys in the snow as had the most amazing little heater, toasty within about 1m30s! 😄 Hardly a car for 2018 Britain though. I do miss the choices of cheap little caoable 4x4s from that era though! Even the sporttrax and 2.0 fronterra were funky.
