      I definitely agree that the market for original defenders will most definitely be different than that for the current version. I think the originals, at least in the US, benefit from the quirky and...
    2. Poll: While everything you wrote could be technically...

      While everything you wrote could be technically true, none of it seems to be a factor for the OP. I don't think the OP is doing stop light races, but it will still have enough power to get around...

      Just saw my first Defender on the road this past weekend. Looked pretty low level in the equipment department. Boring silver and steel wheels. Didn't really standout. I like them, but I'd need a...

      As noted, there isn't much the manufacturer can do, unless (I'm would guess) the dealer is doing something illegal. I also think that there are some benefits to the dealer for the insane markups. For...

      Yup, I've heard of the place. I'm in the Philly burbs so it's easy enough to physically drive there. But my understanding is that Greg Smith is basically a store to buy the equipment, but I am...

      :eek::laugh:

      Yeah, it's pretty severe. The Hyundai and Jeep won't have a problem getting over it, but the VW and BMW will have a problem. Luckily the builder already pointed out this is before...

      The garage is coming along nicely. Now it's all about the details, and a lift (hopefully!). https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201016/75baa7356f67266d04123fecb35167fb.jpg

      Congrats on the purchase. I had a regular X2 as a loaner and it was decent enough. I don't have strong thoughts on the layout, but I do think the X2 is much better looking than the X1. Though I...

      I can't answer that as I don't think the configurator is up. Wouldn't surprise me at all if for example the CCBs are only available on the comp model. Ultimately I think it depends on how badly BMW...

      Hmmm---maybe this could replace our Tucson down the road. Not sure I want to get into any "character" typically associated with VW products, particularly for something we would get for appliance...

      What you have pictured is the thermostat housing, not the thermostat. And from what I've seen the water pump also connects to this housing, which is a bit different than in a lot of cars. Looks...

      Being fundamentally different has never been the issue. Getting a luxury car with all the luxury BS, is the issue. Now I love the idea that I can only get a manual in the lower spec, but that is...

      I would argue that Doug reviews cars very differently than most other youtubers. Almost everyone tries to give their impression of the performance and feel of a car. Some spend some time going over...

      Yup. This is the kind of stuff that isn't very exciting to talk about. But I remember arguing about just the stuff going on in here when I was younger. It was great seeing what the vr6 turbo guys...

      Yes, let's not compare any of these with a v8. There's a reason why the last three cars I bought had a na V8. They are really nice vehicles to drive---and that's across the spectrum of v8s. There's a...

      You may not be alone, but IMO, that's crazy. The transmission isn't my favorite, but the RWD, I6t in the 340 is fantastic to drive. And I'm sure the modding potential is pretty decent as well. The...

      As do I. The interior of the various A class-based vehicles, is WAY nicer than the previous gen car (CLA/GLA). The person who is making the negative comments has not seen one of these in person. ...

      Agreed. Sometimes a story that's told is exactly as it seems. But more times than not, the person raising a stink is not disclosing the course of events that lead up to whatever the person is upset...

      What are you all worked up about? Just buy the 228 with M sport package and be done with it. It's lower power and I'm sure the suspension is more compliant. It should address most of your issues...

      I'd rather have a Golf R over any of these. I find nothing appealing about these.
