I'd buy it in black!
What does a CSW get you over and above a standard Defender?

Well you get feck all usually so thats probably a radio cassette and mats or something similar, give them a ring or search for the Defender thread a while ago where someone imported one.
Black looks abit drug dealer, I like the slate/ gunmental grey with the big alloys, but each to their own

A BMW X5 is a CAR - obviously it will be nicer on the road - as would a Jag S type or an M3 - the Defender is different - it is actually FUN to drive!!!

A Landy has a personality. An X5 doesn't.

I've got a mini cooper convertible - H reg - converted by a firm in dorset that goes like poo off a shovel! also nearly fits in the boot of the shogun sport! Looking for a car trailer for it at the moment so I can tow it places when I need to take more than a tooth brush!
