Well it makes it immediately:

Worse riding
Less capable
Less versatile
No self levelling so Xenon headlights out of option

Add to that if towing it will require upgrades to springs etc..

This isn't a thread on what are the benifits of Air Susp..they are well known previously acknowledged above..Your choice of Air Susp is right for you and many others..it still doesnt make your car more reliable that a coil version.

Perhaps - but it's about engines and Gearboxes..

And your comments initially had nothing to do with that either [emoji12]

Well after converting the rear of my defer to air suspension (airbags replacing coils) I'm sold it that on a beam axle...wish I had the dollars to do the front.

My initial comment was to correct someone that mentioned there would be no coil option..completely inline with the thread discussion about the new defender, the title of the thread is just a title to start discussion on the new defender [emoji6]
