Nice. I hope that turns out to be a good rig. My mom sold her Disco too and got an X5. So far it's a much better vehicle for her. Easier for her to get into, drives like a dream, and about twice as good on gas.

Nice! Enjoy a little peace of mind! I haven't had a warranty on a car yet.

Last night watched Top Gear (GB version) and they winched Series 1 up a dam in tribute to the D90 commercial. At the end of the show James May commented why all the fuss on the production run ending as a new Defender that looks like the current one will be available. Being in Switzerland the dealer should get advanced info which I am looking forward to reading.

Haha! I remember those commercials! At 8lbs/gal, most euro truck bed suspensions couldn't hardly support a dunk tank, but that 6X6 Glandy looks like it could carry my endless pool.

Saw that too! I can't get enough of those guys! Regarding defender production hype, please keep us in the loop if and when you hear something.

Yep for sure. Our dealer is in Liechtenstein with some very well heeled customers so they should be on top of it.

I watched the episode last night. Yeah, it was a strange way to bring it up... I don't know if this is Land Rover's way of hinting at what they are up to, which would make the whole DC100 deal a large troll operation.

But at the same time, James May could just not care that the DC100 doesn't look anything like the current Defender, and is just trolling hamster.

In the end, I don't know what to believe anymore... Defenderception!!!!
