No been testing a 90 out this week with the 2.2 engine and it had side facers
It's a bit quieter than the 2.4 as well pulls from 20 mph in 5 gear no problem.

Yes, standard on some specs, optional on more basic specs, or there are always after market options

Yep, as far as I'm aware, some useless bit of EU legislation doesn't let us have sideways facing rear seats anymore.

So with the 2007 (Puma engined) model year Defender and onward, both 90 and 110 can only have forward facing rear seats, although they do fold up to the side of the vehicle. Because of the way they are designed, you can only 1 folding seat either side, so a max of 2 rear seats per vehicle.

Slightly annoying, as it means you lose 2 seats in the back of either 90 or 110, compared to the previous TD5 model. That's one of the reasons I have kept my 110 TD5...

So if we pull out of the EU can we keep the Defender seem as its there regulations that are making it from being continued.

Pictured here with the RIB International Arctic Blue during the round Britain powerboat race. That event just about finished that car off (along with Ian C2 RIBs trailer!).

2: Same Disco with my 7m Solent on the back. Can't work out which was more unreliable, the Disco or the RIB.

3: Replaced the black Disco with an even more unreliable one (RIB 9463). Photo taken at the RNLI in Poole, picking up an Atlantic 75 the day after I bought the car. Broke down on the M1 a few hours later and had to be recovered all the way home.

4: A new engine later and she was running again. Photo taken in Portsmouth with the work Solent 9m on the back. Amazing boat.

5: My current rig. TD5 Disco and 6m Searider now fitted with a pair of Yamaha 50 4-strokes. She's only broken down once in the last 12 months so I think I'm doing well!
all can say is that when my last van broke down, i phone dealer up and bought new one,
rember my 2 1/2 year old td5 went into limp moded and off it went on autotrader
