Yup same with me I get in the 130 every morning look over the bonnet and grin and the amount of people that look and wave as well.
They built the Evoque for the hairdresser and to take people away from Audi

bottom line is if Land Rover don't build the disco sport, evoque etc then they'll just go bust, they ain't gonna survive on defenders

As said earlier most things about defenders are outside the modern norm - noisy, draughty, uneconomical, not very comfy, few electronic toys. Still love em... Any news on what the new Defender will be like - or what pop "star" will be its executive designer...lady Gaga maybe? Could be interesting 😱

Yup agree there Chris Defenders had its day
I just hope they build something that's usable and everyday people can afford the D4 is getting into RR prices now. With to many toys on you don't need.

that's why I mentioned the D4 XS, got all the stuff you need without going daft, the defender replacement will have to be good for me to be thinking about swapping my 90

Get a couple of Recaros. Job done.

I love my TD5 90% of the time....it's the cold mornings I hate when it takes forever to chuck out a bit of heat!

Came close to swapping it for a TDCI but decided to keep it and treat it to a few 'tweaks' instead.
