It's a struggle to find anywhere legit nowadays around here !! The best spot is in the process of being made 'impossible' to access with a vehicle due to the local muppets littering & attempting to burn down the woods. Believe it or not the last lot brought a chainsaw with them......... I've never seen Ray M take one of them !!

To bear it for years and years until it makes no point whatsoever to those around you?

Anyway, I have an S111 Safari and love it. Hate Land Rovers though. Also have a FreeLander, still hate Land Rovers.

Do you remember Connolly leather in Jags and Rangeys, even Astons and Benters.........well, JLR shifted leather sourcing to China and Connolly went under.

And that was at least seven years ago, before China was on the big league map.

There is no loyalty from UK manufacturers.........namely because none of them are owned by UK owners any longer.

China already accounts for 70% of product in a JLR vehicle. Only the assembly and design happens largely in UK and that's debatable and anyway, no longer profitable.

Ford in Dagenham?

Read Jag, Aston, Land Rover......Made In China......few ticks of the clock from now.
