Hello! Soon to be...110 Owner

Hello,

My name is Jason. I currently own a LR4 as my daily driver but have always wanted a Defender 110. I have been kicking around importing one from Heritage Vehicle Sales in the UK. They seem to have their act together and have a good selection of 110's. Does anyone have any suggestions for a new member and soon to be 110 owner? Has anyone ever purchased/imported a vehicle from them before? Anything I should watch out for importing a 110? Besides the age/import year rule? I have been looking at a 1989 with a 2.5 diesel and I am looking to daily drive it.

Thanks!

Jason

Have you searched for one already on these shores?
I saw a white 89 2.5 D 110 in the for sale section. It was reasonable too. If I had the money, it would have been in my driveway by now.
I'll post the link if I can find it.

To be honest I just stumbled on this forum. I didn't realize how many 110s were in the states. I am definitely going to do research before I import. If you can find that link please post it. Thanks for the info!

Jason,

If you do decide to import do not go with Heritage. I bought a 110 directly from them when I was stationed in the UK and paid more than it was worth. I can provide more background info if you like. Good luck.

Do a search on the forum ... there are numerous threads on how to import correctly and avoid the pitfalls. Best advice, go directly to Uncle Doug as doing it wrong can lead to loss of finances. Then again buy one that's already here and avoid the scammers.
