    Perhaps most importantly
    Will the new model have integrated “pant belt loop (PBL) remover”
    Or will that be an expensive aftermarket accessory.
    Surely LR would not steep so low as to not include such necessary functionality?

    I was just considering that myself,

    I have huge concerns that the PBL-BBO
    (Pant belt loop-beer bottle opener) will either be modified, or removed altogether.

    As if life is not hard enough already.

    I don't even NEED the belt loops on my pants anymore, mainly due to land rovers forward thinking engineers creating the PBL-BBO, the BBO helps you fill out your pants like all decent gentlemen should, then the PBL removes excess weight from your actual pants by tearing the loops off, which you now need to do because of the BBO.

    Now THAT'S synchronicity

    I know Jill and I can get 6 hay bales in the back of our D4. We could have fitted a bit more if we had chopped a couple up. Nothing beats fitting rectangles in a car better than a rectangular shared car. That's our criterion.

    Realistically there is nothing on the planet that should be designed with anything other than a set square.

    It's the only thing that sets us apart from nature

    I'd also like to know if my thongs will still slide in under the driver's seat.
    Also, do the rear windows still wind down by themselves?

    No way he probably loves it! I'm trying to get my gf to upgrade to the new Jimny in white to match my 110 for pretty much this reason alone New Defender an immediate success

    Looking at the Vids,I recon the new one is slightly smaller inside than the D4.
    So the 6 hay bales probably won’t fit.
    Same for my rear set up in the D4
    You may have to wait for the 130,but I will put up with the new 110,it looks like a cracker.
