Totally opposed. Discoweb.org has a Defender subforum. Guess what, I don't go over there for Defender advise. And there are already so many all product Land Rover sites out there. I really don't need non-Defender/110 owners out there providing advice. I like the niche of this forums community who all generally are new to Defenders or have a great deal of experience specifically with Defenders.

Interesting perspective. Possible translation to a few who already posted on this topic -- take your shovel elsewhere, this sandbox is not for you. Hope I am misreading that. Perhaps you don't what this forum to turn into a DWeb for which I 100% agree.

Solid point, to a better resource anyway. Almost all of what you would want to know about the platform is there. After that I think it's a tie between Dweb (when they aren't arguing about the L8 D3), here and ExpO or just flat out google search. The best part about here is folks who work on them professionally chiming in.

...but just to continue to throw fuel on it, this place already claimed Series trucks b/c they're (mostly) the same shape...there is no room for the air spring generation (it sounds like HH all over again).

It hurts going there and reading all the diesel specific posts. For example:


"Over past few months I have been keeping track of actual mpg, having covered over 10,000 miles it has averaged 24.8mpg using the iPhone app. A few weeks ago I inflated the tyres to 36psi front and 40 rears. Actual mpg is now 28.9."

Thanks to our antiquate EPA laws, we are lucky to achieve 1/2 of that.

Wait - didn't you already take your shovel and leave?


For the very reasons you list are why I think a LR3 subforum would be successful here. Shoot, make it an opt-in subforum like the mud pit. Then out of sight out of mind for the purists.

Agree 100%. If you don't like it, don't go there. Simple as that.

Disco.co.uk is okay, but it mostly deals with Euro-spec (diesel) rigs.

This place is already great, the addtion of a D3 page would make it better.

Personally, I say no. This is a Defender forum and that should be the focus. There are tons of other forums out there for the other models.

Yes, Series trucks have much more in common with a Defender than a Range Rover Classic or Discovery 1.

Oh, and I must say the "Artwork & Doodles" and "Dumb Games" subforums really add more to this place than a D3 subforum would...

umm, nope you're not misreading it. I don't want to come to dsource and have to sift though the models to find Defender related content. That's why I'm here. And to be clear, my wife has a D2. When I need advice for her's, I go to dweb where I can find disco focused content.

When I want to sift through a global history of land rover fruit salad, I go to landroverforums or lr4x4. And yes, I don't want this forum to turn into dweb. This forum is civil because we are all likeminded in our passion, and have no quarrel about who's model is better.

That said, I say go ahead with a poll. I believe in democracy and this topic is worthy of debate. Ultimately, it's the site owner who will decide what's best for them.

If you're going to create a LR3 sub-forum it should be a 'Other Rovers' sub-forum. Would add minimal crap to sift through on the main page (1 more link) for those who don't want more clutter

The first thread of "my seat won't remember it's setting" will be the beginning of the end of this forum.

I can appreciate both sides of the argument, and I'm on the fence about out overall.

If another section is added, I think there should be a section for 05+ MY vehicles, and another sections for all older Land Rovers.

There is little cross pollination between the two vehicles. Plenty of other sites for LR 3/4-D3 owners.
Please keep this a Defender only site.

This is Defender Source and I think it is what it is because of the focus on those models and Series vehicles. There are plenty of other sites for Disco/RR discussions. The example given of the hardly used Defender section on DWeb is a good example of why not.
