    There are a couple of guys I know who got them through work and they love them to bits. One of them had an old GQ “he couldn’t part with”, but not long after the Y62 came along, the GQ went on the market.

    That’s it really.
    The computer assisted drivetrain isn’t the future it is here and now.
    IFS and monocoque don’t equate to “soft” just because manufacturers have typically built vehicles to this spec.

    What will make the new Defender a success will be looks which acknowledge the pedigree (think Jag/bmw/Porsche) but not make it cheesy and lame like the current FJ.
    Then the biggest issue LR will face is to demonstrate the “built in”faults which have plagued the marque are history and any issue which does show up is rectified immediately and properly not bandaids.
    Then a real load carrying capacity is essential.
    IFS doesn’t preclude that.
    Design and Tech is already commonplace all they have to do is get the looks and QC right.
    I think they can do it and Defender with IFS won’t phase me if it’s well built machine.
    But I don’t see any need for Defender wagon other than nostalgia.
    I love my Defer DC and if the D3/4 came as s DC with the load capability the old Defer, upgrading would be a consideration.

    Yep, about the same sort of deal the two guys I know went with earlier this year. They also got really good trade-ins on their dual cab Navara's too. The several other guys who traded in their work vehicles went with top of the line Navara's & Hilux's and were really miffed when they saw what could be had for nearly the same money (including trade-ins)!
