I'm going soft in my old age, like my heated seats in winter and climate in summer

I do love Landies, even took a 90 to Gib a few years ago, shame it got a bit sunburnt




I was really just trying to point out that a Defender is nothing like a Disco, and it could be a bit of a shock to the OP to start using one as a daily driver.

The defender sould be a downgrade in terms of driving but its just a quality car. I also like the evoque if you get the look right but uts expensive and small for the price. Maybe the jeep.....

I seem to remember the Jeeps having a lot lower tow limit, I remember a guy having to get rid of his transporter trailer as his new jeep was under the limit.
