Nice thought Rovertrader, I am probably going to go the way of the Disco 1 for the DD as I can use it for play and for my wife while the Defender takes shape. D1 is cheaper than D2, comes standard with CDL, and I won't feel as bad if it ends up a bit knackered and left to makes it own way while I work on the defender project. I would love another D2 2004 but I think it is out of my price range if I also want to get a Defender 110 or 130 in the same patch of time. What engines would people recommend for a 130 for expeds? I am thinking 300 tdi for simplicity and ruggedness but what about a TD5 or possibly a completely non LR engine like a big Mazda or something eastern for reliability.
