Very strange The company I am buying my vehicle from appears at the bottom of this page in an advert (third from left, save £5,000) Is Ribnet a Landrover Sponsor then? Just interested as it seems strange that it has appeared there.

Even stranger, I am now on a new page with this post and its not here, but still on the page before (p6)

Codprawn this isnt a post about "OTHER VEHICLES" its about Defenders.

As far as importing vehicles from the Republic of Ireland to the Uk is concerned, now that is a joke.....
Why would anyone do that, we pay 40% more for our vehicles than you do,
So now its apparantly viable to ship higher priced vehicles to the UK for resale?

As far as not having experience with Defenders, I spent a winter 2 years ago rebuilding a 1986 one with a friend, the one I posted about earlier, Gearbox went on the drive home, apart from modding it we actually replaced the engine too, with a Nissan diesel, I have done quite a lot under a Defender, Unlike yourself, yours doesnt even need servicing by all accounts, if you dont like what I am posting, try not to take it to heart,

Do the searches yourself, I ve mentioned where the reviews came from, find me some good points, this is what the forums are about.

Unfortunatly you already have an opinion about Irish,and Jap vehicles, and are quite happy to tell us about my mate this, and this friend etc,
give us a few links, post a bit of credible info for a change.

If Landrover 4x4 is so amazing, and Wales is only 54 miles from Dublin, bearing in mind in Ireland almost every third or fourth vehicle on our roads, is a 4x4 ,

why if we ship every vehicle into Ireland , do we have very few Defenders, and thousands upon thousands of , Toyotas, Mitsibushi,Isuzu,........ you will probably know some friend that has the answer.

Don't know about a friend who has an answer but Mr Davies seems to have summed it up perfectly!!!!!

I find it extremely difficult to follow the language. Could you please offer a translation. I thought that the language on this board was English - not some
yokel diallect dating from the 14th century.

Just as I thought....

Gavin- dont get too excited about the posts from Codprawn. I personally do not believe 1% of what he says is correct.He is also on a number of other boards ( "boater" ect... ) spouting out on a vast range of subjects.. The
problem is people believe him... and that is all what he is seeking- a glorification of his ego. I would like to see a picture of him and his LR, I would also like to see a picture of his estate in wales, .. And what I do not understand is that this guy who doesnt have a rib is able to offer so much advice , presumably gathered from his 36 years of nautical experience, after completing his doctorate at the age of 3. In the meantime he was able to take over AOL,CISCO, IBM and has recently offered Bill Gates his services to
update Windows XP - as the new version due out in 2007 will be rewritten in
a new language being introduced by.... you' guessed it.......

Dont worry Codders- it might never happen.....

I have a LR110... in fact I'm on my 12th ish LR product. I also have, in my works' fleet (fleet is a grand word, but thanks to the DOT - or whatever they're called these days- I'm a "fleet operator"..how cool is that?), an LT200 – used to have two, but one got squished – several Ford 4X4s… what can I say? They were cheap at the time… and a Toyota..Mmm…nice… if your name is Gervais….

Guess what Codders? Gavin is right about some of those complaints… I’ve had axle problems, gear box problems and even managed to blow up a V8… ah, well, it was going well till it went “pop”….

But guess what else? If I have to choose a vehicle to use, it’ll be my trusty… **stop sniggering at the back there** Defender. …. Why? Cause I love it to bits, warts’n all. It does what I want, when I want…eventually…. and costs not a lot to run… residual values are strong…..for whatever reason… whereas my LT , Fords and Toyota are going into free fall on the re-sale and that counts for a great deal to me….

..and JW ? I knew what EP stood for…

...cause your roads are shite! With all the "tarmacing" that goes on in England by people with Irish accents I understand that you have no-one left in your home country to do a little road maintenance... Do your bit for the environment, Ireland and we wouldn't need all those poxy 4X4 trucks... mind you when the EU stop paying farmers ridiculous subsidies for over-producing, then they won't be able to afford them anyway.... and, as for our Australian cousins......

Any one else I can offend today?
