They also make them in Australia by the way but they are wider. The Spanish one is as ugly as sin and still uses cart springs, why anyone would want one of them is beyond me.
landrover lost the 101 replacement as the 130 defender was not up to the job
merc have it with the little gs truck
land rover have set up a full inspection and test centre at a mod base for putting right problems on brand new wolfs before they hit service read LRO.
they find five out of ten wolfs have unfit for service problems
the mod have expressed concern about wolfs having to be return to dealers
for repairs my local agent as about four wolfs each time i go from woolwich
not good during a war
the royal salute guns are now pulled by german merc gs trucks with 30 k service intervals
don, t get me wrong its so wrong when i have to replace my company truck yet again with an other mitsubishi l200 when the TD5 crew cab is the same price on the road but landrover as nothing at all inside you have two pay for two more speakers and a cd player met paint ABS AC all cost more. buy the bits
and add four grand two the price
and don,t tell me the L200 is crap off road it will do all what a defender will
do and more as the landrover will break down on a monthy basis
this is the first year i did not renew my LRO mag for the year
and i hope they close solihull down and build at halewood to improve the product
