    2020 Defender Spy Shots....

    Well, after watching the teasers, the video and the launch. I’m sold on one. It will be the car that puts my faithful Disco3 into semi retirement in a few years. A silver 110 HSE with explorer pack and some options like the pictured one will be brilliant for my needs. It’s modern, well...

    2020 Defender Spy Shots....

    Again. Why can’t they do that without it crumpling in on the passenger cabin? Couldn’t they make the frame and basic body shell a little bit tougher so you don’t end up with a brake pedal though the shin bone in a bump in town. Not comparing Jeep to D5. Totally different markets and prices. I...

    2020 Defender Spy Shots....

    That’s all well and lovely. But why can’t you enjoy all that without suffering the risk of a broken leg in a 30mph crash because the car crumpled like a biscuit. No matter how you dress it up. That’s not good enough from what is a newly redesigned model.

    2020 Defender Spy Shots....

    So many arm chair experts. Having been in, driven, and off roaded the old defender in various engine models. They are great for a toy and for off roading but are a pathetic on road model, noise levels, vibrations and poor ergonomics make it a very tiring place to cover any miles in. One...

    Somehow my phone pictures are too large so I can’t stick anything up. So you’ll have to use your imagination

    Life With A Supercharged RRS For an Overland Rig

    Nice starting point. There was one at a Landy show last year, it was your facelift shape but had been built into a black G4 replica with LR RAI, rack, ladder but with LTZ tyres on the 20” wheels. For yours. Go front to back and change all fluids, give it a decent service and check the...

    LR3/LR4 Peeps, need roof rack advice/insight

    I don’t have a RTT on my front runner rack but i find the design of the rack to be superb for allowing stuff to be placed anywhere on the rack. I’ve carried lots of kit on the rack and the T slot helps make securing it easy and simple. They offer roof tent brackets to allow you to fit it...

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    I have garage envy. Wish you all the best for the move when it comes and that retirement is enjoyable. Would love a place like that for my own retirement, in about 30-35 years.

    Thankfully I’ve managed to machine polish most of it out and the remaining isn’t noticeable so for now I’m happy. Car will get a full respray next year to sort a few things and to get it looking smart again so I’ll get it protected then.

    Decisions, decisions

    Front runner with wind fairing and expedition rail kit. Wind fairing totally changes the car. Everyone who’s been in my car since it got fitted have all commented on how quiet it is now. You can move the slats about anywhere and can bolt anything to the top or bottom of it with an M8 bolt in...

    Some comfy off roading for a change instead of being deafened by a couple of days out in the Defenders. That treelike scratched the hell out my paintwork. Which I’m rather annoyed at. However, I did swap 2 great condition 88” series 1 wings for 2 great condition 80” wings for my project series...

    Full length rack noise

    I’m getting between 1-2 mpg better and nearly 40-50 miles more to a tank.

    Can’t belive how much of a difference it makes to the car. Driving down the motorway at 60mph, sun roof fully opened is quieter than driving through town at 30mph with a side window open a bit. Plus the mpg gains are always welcome. My mate Colin who went to Le Mans with me commented within 2...

    Wind fairing is superb! Gained 2 mpg, can open sun roof fully with minor wind noise compared to before. Everyone has commented on how quiet the car is now with it attached. Heated steering wheel is off a 2014 D4. I had to buy the heated steering wheel, heated clock spring, the extra power cable...

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    I've heard many mixed reviews on the Superpro bushes, for extra noise, harshness and causing failures of the actual arms. Personally, i replaced the factory D3 arms at 117,000ish miles. They were pretty worn, they got changed with the rear lowers, and front uppers, all 4 arbs and steering...
