Hello from Toronto

Hi All,

My name is John, and I'm from Toronto, Canada. I am the current owner of a P38 4.6HSE, although a sick one at that haha! I have a plan to acquire a Defender in the next few years, although I'm still trying to formulate much of that. I figured in the meantime it would be a good idea for me to start spending some time on the forums to learn what I can. I'm all ears to whatever advice you all have!

Cheers,

John

Hey John, welcome.

Been seeing quite a few Defenders in and around the GTA listed on Kijiji lately. Some good deals and some where the seller is dreaming big time.

I know our friends to the south don't want to hear this, but in a couple more weeks, we can start to import 2000 model year Defenders! How sweet is that? I'm sure when you are ready to buy you will be able to find a pretty nice truck either locally or from over seas.

Hi John,

I'm up in Ottawa. When you get a bit closer to a purchase I've dealt with a number of the small business selling defenders around Ontario and could possibly give some insight before you fork over any cash.
Also I've imported my own and could give you some tips on that side of things as well.

Cheers,
Will

Welcome.

Buy a 300tdi if you can the newer td5 models are not better then the 300. The 300 is more of the real deal and easier to work on.

Good luck with your hunt!

Check for Britanica restoration in Lennoxville. He might get what you need and import it for you. Known Micheal for 20 years and he is trust worthy.

Welcome to the most interesting Defender forum in the English speaking world.
If you are a current Land Rover owner come out to one of our meetings at the LRAA.
Interested send me an email via this forum and I'll give you details.
