    As you spend more time with a golf club than a camera it was somewhat hard to see what was the other side of the sign....but it didn't look markedly different to what was on this side.

    that as well !

    The only thing I will miss are the dogs sitting on the cubbybox watching me drive

    Let's hope the new one is better - but I do wonder where it will fit in the model lineup

    It hadn't been maintained to the high standard of the "highway" this side. It was obviously just a B road past that point.

    The point remains - a Defender isn't supposed to be a 'Chelsea Tractor', it's supposed to be a rugged off-road utility vehicle. You're right in what you said earlier, very few need one, but buying one and complaining about comfort is as silly as buying a Ferrari and complaining about reliability.

    Mark's point is a good one - where will the new Defender fit into the model line up? I know where the old one fit, not sure about the new.
