Hello from Italy

Hi yall,

I don't own a defender yet, but I've always told myself that if I was ever stationed in Europe that i would get myself one. Seeing how I am now done that its time to start hunting for a defender.

So far I have sent a couple dealerships here in Italy and some in England, but haven't gotten responses from them yet.

Anyway I look forward to getting one and wrenching away on it and trying to find some back country roads.

Welcome!
Although I am not active duty anymore, I am kinda "stationed" here(UK) and have gotten the Defender bug as well. Good Luck with your search and if you need anything from the UK or have any questions, please let me know. There is plenty of information on this board and a lot of really smart guys and gals.

Semper Fi,

Eric

There is definitely a plethora of info on this site, I have been reading it off and on for the last year. Kind of like trying to drink for a fire hose. Right now it seems like my best bet for a Defender is to get one from the UK and have it shipped over, or get my new passport and take a short trip over and pick one up and drive back.

What are you looking for? The guy in Spain who I just bought my 130 from has another.

I can't see the point in buying a Defender in UK if you're in Italy.
Plenty of choice around you, easy to check, and way less chances to buy a can of worms (rusty/rotten chassis).
Also, LHD is not practical if you drive on the right lane.

Id like a 110 station wagon with a 200 TDI, but will also go for a 90 wagon if the price is right. Id like to get one locally too but every time I search Google I end up getting a bunch more in the UK. The biggest draw back is being an American and having that stupid 25 year import so I'm looking at 91/early 92s a the newest just in case I end up not getting another overseas assignment.
