Interesting. I have owned Land Rover since 1976 and don't know most of these acronyms. Though I have noticed that some are from the computer industry, some standard fuel injection nomenclature and some from twitter users.

Personally acronyms drive me crazy because they mean totally different things to different people. For instance in the geek world AI = artificial intelligence. In the livestock world AI = artificial insemination. And # = pound sign, number sign and a twitter prefix.

What I have noticed here is that most of you British car owners do not know English very well and are always using American names for British parts.

If I were to tell someone to open a scuttle vent most of you lot would think I was about to sink the Land Rover when all I wanted was a little more fresh air.

Or if I were to suggest that you tighten the hood most of you would go out and check the fixings on the bonnet.

I have always thought that if you are to own a British car you should take the time to learn English and know the correct name for parts on your vehicle.

Google needs an American English to British English translator! Interesting on the whole bonnet verse hood thing...in one way they represent the same thing in American English...that also applies in British circles as it relates to clothing...it's all derived from slang I suppose, the same difference in hoodie and jumper...

I wish. Then I could drive one instead of working on the pile I call my Defender.

Yeah I can only imagine...so is it the plumber with the eternal leaky pipe scenario or the plumber that has the latest and greatest plumbing...I think we all believe that you would have the greatest ECR Resto on the planet...50 MPG, able to tow a 32' Airstream through the mountains all while in the fast lane...

Sadly, No.
My projects are all in pieces, kicked to the curb as customer stuff comes first. Not a bad problem to have, but it means my dream 110 is still just that.
