I was joking about Julian living in the pikey village. Julian does not live in the pikey village. Doug made a wrong turn and led us in there. We found our way back out and then found Julian's place. Julian is not a pikey minge basket. He put us up and put up with us and is welcome in my glass home any time should he find himself in my corner of pikey town.

All kidding aside this thread was bumped by Kevin Corrigan because the Willets ripped him of for $17,600 because he didn't see my warning and picked up the post in a google search after the fact. The threat of disreputeable dealers in the UK is very real. Contact me before buying

add another to the list

Unfortunately there is another UK vendor that needs to be listed. In the UK he goes by "The Landrover Workshop" in the US/Canada and Ebay he goes by "Land Rover Import". Claims to sell rebuilt Defenders however they come with rather tired parts. In the process now of rebuilding several components on a turn key truck from this company. They also seem to sell engines on Ebay quite often, just be prepared for a rather tired engine if you make a purchase. On a positive side it is a legal import however I am or have completed the following repairs:

--rebuild rear axle
--speedometer cable
--heater not functioning
--stock temp gauge doesn't read correctly
--spring sag
--coolant leak
--oil leak
--back lash in running gear
--new door window guide seals

The truck did drive nice for 18 miles till black smoke started to come out of the dash. Maybe "turn key" in the UK mean that only the key moves freely in the ignition switch and nothing else is supposed to happen.

Just to jump in here a bit. In the UK there are many very reputable sellers both private and commercial. It is unfortunate that the bad apples get all th publicity.

Just as in the US it is possible to hire a service to look over any vehicle prior to purchase,

If anyone has any furthur info on land rover import please contact me off line.
