ex-MOD Defender

I'm not affiliated in any way with these guys, but a local Land Rover dealer is selling an ex-MOD Defender. Notable, because 1) it's an official dealer selling basically a gray market vehicle
2) the asking price is ridiculously high, maybe 4 times what the vehicle is worth?

Comments?

About 2x what you can get one for.

That is really a high price. 4x the cost is not really true either. The true cost depends on a lot of variables.
If you are in the market I would check the one out in Pompano. If you want to import one shoot me an pm and I will be happy to get you one.

X2 on sending Abe a PM. This is how I got mine and I am more than pleased. Both with the product and the service provided.

That's not a grey market vehicle at all. It's totally legal.

I did my own import of a much nicer specimen of the same exact truck (1987 Ex-MOD 110, Tithonus reconditioned) for a fraction of that price.

Neil thank you for your kind words. I was honored that i was able to help.
Chris you are right that your truck is nicer than the 87, I am glad that my salesman picked you out a good truck. How's all of the upgrades going?

Grey market and legal have nothing to do with each other. Any vehicle imported from another market is considered Grey market

Can't say that I'd recommend Craig again. I did get a nice truck from him but I attribute that mostly to luck. He told me flat out that he would not hunt for the nicest truck, that he had too many on the lot to do that. I'm pretty sure that he walked out to the nearest line of LHDs and picked the lowest-milage specimen. I never got most of the photos that I wanted from him, nowhere near what my buddy got when he worked with whatever random salesman answered the phone when he called. Thanks for the referral anyhow, it worked out okay in the end.

It is indeed a grey market vehicle. Anything imported by anyone other that the manufacturer IE JLRNA is a grey market vehicle. Grey market is defined as a vehicle imported by anyone other than the manufacturers normal marketing/distribution system.

It's being sold by a land rover dealer so therein lies the jacking up of the price. Unless that comes with a 10 year Land Rover factory bumper to bumper warranty I would also buy the one in Pompano.
