Hello from Toronto, Canada

Hi all,

I recently imported a Defender 90 from Germany and just went on a 1,800km trip to bring it home from Halifax.

Amazing trip. Amazing car. Going to start taking it apart tomorrow to build my perfect car over the next few months. There are some rust/oxidation issues that I have to deal with first, but then the fun of making the car truly my own begins. This is going to be a 90% street car with occasional light off road usage.

So far I'm thinking of:
1. power upgrades
2. suspension upgrades (thoughts on air suspension?)
3. brake upgrade
4. exterior/interior stuff obviously

Looking forward to tapping into your vast knowledge of these cars!

Here she is:

If you are thinking Discovery air suspension, get on any forum around Discos and you will find that it would be a mistake to add air suspension to a defender -and having had a discovery, I would advise against it.

Does your truck have a td5?

@deanclean Awesome! We'll have to go on a cruise!

@defenderholty I was actually thinking of going with something like Airlift, where I can easily lower the car for the city and get an additional 6-8 inches of travel for offroad. This was just a thought - I have not done any research yet.

Yes, the car has a TD5 in it.

You wouldn't have been passing Coburg heading west on the 401 around 12-1pm Saturday? If not there is a truck that looks just like yours.

Welcome to the addiction. That Td5 must be some nice! I hope you have A/C is yours.
