If your current one is still running reliably & still does what you need keep it. Perhaps it falls foul of the new London emissions zone. Change for change sake alone & you could be buying trouble.

Interesting - thought that when I saw the spy shots.

Meanwhile Defender owners can look at the pickup trucks / Hiluxes of the world, or maybe the Ineos guy's https://projektgrenadier.com/

What is it that Ineos is offering? Is it a essentially a new-old Defender? I took a quick look at the website and lost interest, too much blurb and when I read the words, “conceived in a Knightsbridge pub”, I gave up. surrender

It doesn't say much about the inbuilt security if they are that easy to steal... or is it the keyless entry "amplification" routine being used?

Mercedes has introduced a new layer of security. Lay your key fob down on a shelf or table and after 30 seconds it turns its self off, until picked up. Logical and simple.


Peter they either boost the key signal on keyless entry. Failing that smash a rearseat window to gain entry then use the OBD port to reprogram a key.

Thanks for the heads-up Keith. My son has just bought a Range Rover Sport, so I'll let him know he needs to invest in a decent Tracker as things tend to go walkabout round where he lives. A while ago someone relieved him of his exhaust while the car was on his drive.


Also a Disklock Thatcham cat 3 on steering wheel, about £130 but well worth it.

Wow! She looks exactly the way I imagined. And that's very very sad.

Yes not worth the wait really, we saw it in dazzle livery at FOS and the shape was dull and unimaginative to say the least.

I won't be selling my 2015 '90' to buy a Discovery with a 'Defender' badge on it!...

There 'was'... an opportunity to do something special here... if Mercedes can keep the 'G-Wagon' true, no idea why JLR crumbled to 'corporate image'...

Such a sad 'evolution' of a 70 year old icon... don't understand why they even bothered.

I forecast it will be a sales 'flop'...
