I get the tongue-in-cheek nature of this comment, but actually it's the only real solution to the entire 80+ page "Rage/hate" clusterf***. If you want an old Defender, then just buy an old one. Even here in the USA with our stupid 25 year law, there are plenty of great second-hand options. H***, want to spend new Defender money? Assuming you're liquid enough and don't need the financing, $60,000 buys you pretty much any ROW Defender build you want or a decent NAS D90. If you're willing to do a little work, a solid LHD base can be had for $15,000. Feel free to go wild with the other $45,000. Full disclosure though, your old Defender better be running triple lockers, beefier axles and 35"+ tires because otherwise you're not exceeding the potential offered by the new Defender straight out of the box. Oh, almost forgot, budget an extra $1,000 in there so you can afford in-car communication gear because there's no way you can have a civilized conversation in an ROW D110 on dedicated mud tires; my LR3 with significantly more sound insulation and creature comforts than an older Defender is super noisy on mud tires and becomes semi-unbearable after 2 hours in the driver's seat.
