My wife's "Defender"

Ever since I brought my 110 home, my wife has been wanting her own 110. But she wanted all the comforts of a new car. So, based I that I had to get her a LR4. Her very own "Defender", I have to admit it rides great, and the a/c beats the heck out of the one in the 110...

Plus Bluetooth, an awesome stereo, heated seats, oh yeah and a 5 liter engine.

I love my LR3.

Congrats on the LR4. It's my wife's "Defender" as well.

Had the LR3 prior to the 4 and it's a different vehicle in many ways. The 4 has a 5.0L putting out 375 smooth HP. Beefier suspension, bigger brakes. The ride experience is instantly noticeable. Plus, the interior styling is fresh. Great ride.

What's different about the suspension? My only guess is that the front control arms have different bushings from the LR3, but I haven't noticed any difference looking at them every day.
