    Well I saw my first 90's today in our yard...I actually don't mind their stance. They seem much better proportioned than the 110's. Are there any 90's on the road at the moment? as all I've seen are the 110's driving around....not one wave though, and I've so far spotted 4. The last one we were right next to at a set of lights. I had the window down arm out, typical old defender pose , waved ....nothing just a puzzled look. My son then leaned across and we both waved. Husband and wife in new 110 just stared straight ahead, maybe they thought if they ignored us we'd go away... I've decided I'm not going to waste a wave on the new defender.

    STUPID LOOKING VEHICLE....

    Going down the M1 towards the Gold Coast this morning I spotted a new Defender with some options fitted including the black hi lite option , whatever it's called....the car was grey/silver , I'm not familiar with names of colours.

    Anyway I saw it from behind and could not identify what the vehicle was so I caught up to it , surprised to see it was a defender.

    it was fitted with a ladder on the LHS , fitted with one of those white saddlebags on the RHS, topped off with full length roof rack with a what I guess to be a rollout shade hanging well outside the left of the roof rack and there were large gaps between each of these items and the bodywork. Everything was asymmetric.

    From either side and the rear I thought it looked positively stupid and totally detracted from the basic look of the vehicle.

    I guess the guy driving it thought I was admiring it when saw me smile , in fact I was smirking.

    I know some here won't like what I've just written about the beloved defender , but it's what I saw and perceived.

    Gotta say, having seen the 90 recently at the dealer, it looks stubby to me. I think the 110 is better proportioned by far.

    As for the wave, some people like that sort of thing, some people think perfect strangers waving at you is weird. Personally, I own a really nice merino jumper and whenever I see someone else in a similar one, I wave. Usually they cross the streetÖ

    Iím not a big fan of the pannier. It looks a bit odd to my eyes. But I donít mind the asymmetry of the ladder. I do think the 110 /90 looks great from the back. But you know what, looks are completely subjective. Just because I donít like it doesnít mean my taste is betterÖ

    I recon the 110 looks great,some of the colours are fantastic as are the matching black wheels.
    The 90 doesnít look as good,nor do the vehicles with the white steel wheels.
    The lunch box hanging off the side looks horrid,only in my opinion.

    Anyway,everyone is different,each to their own.
    Just my 2 cents worth.

    I wish they would get the quality control sorted,just read another review from some mob in Canada.
    They had a new 90,the audio system didnít work properly,nor did the sunroof.
    FFS surely if a company was going to give a vehicle out for a test review,wouldnít it be tripple checked beforehand to make sure it was perfect,that is everything worked properly?

    Maybe not

    No, he bought something while I was waiting for the new one to arrive.
