  1. The one in the foreground must of been delivering a smart garden shed
  2. Paime , please post your views after getting your ATs dirty , ive been following this thread with interest as im currently on an ageing set of 265/75/16 Traction Tracks , I only do shortish trips so the noise doesn't really bother me or the handling on the road , as for laning again no dramas .
  3. TRW here as well , no dramas after 2 years
  4. Will Sir Jim / Ineos have grief from Land Rover if the Grenadier is a copy of the old Defender ?
  5. By all accounts JLR sold four new offenders every minute after the unveiling, seems the metrosexuals are awash with cash . The bit that tickled me was ... the iconic 4x4 was scrapped in 2016 after 68 years but has been resurrected tough , trendy , hi-tech and as a hybrid
  6. Im getting seriously confused about the whole beard no beard thing and which side of the line you fall for having or not having a beard , now after watching the ad , they've chucked a woman into the mix and im now im worried about offending or not offending younger owners than myself and should I call her a woman , lady or cross axle gender , bender defender .
  7. With ref to Mavericks picture , I’m not sure I’m that good a driver to balance a keyboard on my lap while zooting around and more importantly is it legal what with the current hands free laws , surely it would be more effective to attach it to the dash
  8. Eightpot , I don't move in those sorts of circles so I couldn't comment either way but to be fair id agree with you , only commenting on some blurb id read ……. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/cars/news/red-cross-tests-new-land-rover-defender-in-the-desert/ar-AAFewGq?ocid=spartanntp
  9. It seems the Red cross have signed up to a fleet of them
  10. Even worse , you'll attract admiration from the beardies & hipsters , possibly even cult status 🧔
  11. For what its worth my TDCI Transit connect does not like supermarket diesel but runs better on the shell /esso premium diesels , or like others have said is it in the mind , I have found that a good blat to get it properly hot now and again helps in my case as I do doodle around quite a bit locally .
  12. Hi Gazza, I did just that but with the heated seat kit from Exmoor , the Britpart vinyl covers I got have a mesh type affair in the centre , they look surprisingly good and nearly 12 months later are still in bloody good shape , I wish I had done what Snagger has and only used one of the elements as they do get rather warm around the intimate parts , the Mrs will bear this out as well, I fitted Carling switches to my cubby box to keep it all neat and tidy but they are easy to accidently turn on when reaching around in the cab , hope this helps .
  13. It was a good turn out , some impressive bits of kit there .
  14. Had a quick kite at it myself at Goodwood today , all the time listening to some sexy young beards getting horny over it , I think it was the same herd of pretty young things getting wet when it went up the hill , not sure if they appreciated my mumblings although to be fair I was also moaning about the price of the feckin beer at the same time . On a brighter note , the Twisted stand was impressive but not as impressive as the Army lads hoofing around the forest rally track in some standard 90s who took the time to have a natter to my young grandson , hats off to them .
  15. I think you younger types will find that there's nothing wrong with a soft knob in an off road vehicle or maybe the home environment as larger harder knobs often lead to unfortunate and unforeseen accidents
  16. For what its worth I replaced my wiper system with Bearmach parts a two of years back and all is still good , must agree with Retroanaconda , bit of a shat system .
  17. At least Land Rover will make it as easy to steal as the outgoing Defender , all the local smack heads will have to do is buy a box of tricks from Ambay or Ezon to trick the electronics into unlocking and start it without getting their hands dirty
  18. Maybe the Stop- Go pedal thing was a Freudian slip by the young hip design W ⚓'s of the new Defender aimed fairly and squarely at the likes of us old died in the wool owners who've been airing our views
  19. Wernt Land Rover buggering about with a leccy Defender a couple of years back
  20. Roger Clarke , twin 40s , jumpers as goal posts ,etc , etc . Ive just made an awful mess
  21. Just a foot note to the above , my Mrs has just reminded me that the Lotus Cortina argument was closer to 40 years ago and that I had also got stung buying a 1600 GT Mk 2 Cortina that turned out to be a complete shed of S*** and wasn't a GT at all just a standard Mk 2 with a GT dash
  22. Just to chuck my hat in the ring , I think its always been this way . Around 30 years ago I turned down a real Mk1 Lotus Cortina , ally doors, the works , for £800 because my girlfriend at the time ( now the current Mrs Kerby) wanted a Capri , I paid the same money for a M1 AVO Mexico six months later , both of these cars are silly money now , I bought a 2.8 I Capri for £2500 and sold it for £1500 a few years later as the cost of insurance shot through the roof thanks to the scrotes of the day stealing hot hatch backs and trying to drive them like a rally driver , without wishing to sound boring these cars were almost ten a penny and looking back I want to stab pins in my eyes for letting them slip through my hands , but surely its all relative . I wasn't in the market for Landys at the time but I know lightweights went for peanuts back in the day . I totally agree with neil110 above , the scum bags that prey on our beloved Landys deserve have their fingers put in a vice and gently smashed with a 2Lb ball pein .
