    Luxury

    Well on Wednesday I picked up my Series I. The interior is pretty good, but the fella who had it before the people I bought it off; had used it to cart wood. The rear leafs are massive



    Anyway I drove it down from the Macedon Ranges in Victoria to Launceston in Tassie. Roughly 140 kms. With no seat belts, no windsreen wipers, no heater and lots of oil

    Was a good trip but when I got to Tassie it decided to rain. And rain it did.

    No windsreen wipers was bad enough but when water starts bubbeling through the windscreen and roof it gets a bit cold.

    Anyway I got home, and jumped into the Defender to head down to a sheep farm down the midlands for a holiday. And

    First time I have ever felt small in the Defender. Must be because the seats are lower and windsreen slightly smaller. But the seats felt like armchairs and the power from the Tdi felt like a rocket ship. And the ride

    Lets just say I'm glad Landrover switched to coils in the Defender

    Thanks mate

    I like the tray as well, don't reckon I'll ever put a tub on it. Not really a big fan of them with the tub on

    And spread by rust - any spring effect probably comes from the rubber bushes!

    So what was the suspension like when you drove it with those springs?

    Yeah very average

    When I saw a bump in the road I had to brace myself lucky I'm a young fella

    The fronts are a bit sad as well so that did'nt help either.

    But by crike the Defender is nice to drive after the Series
