    There is a Defender for sale in Listers Solihull pretty much just like that for a meer £43k! I imagine a tow bar would be extra!

    Nice addition to the 'fleet' that paintwork appears spot on to, I expect nothing less from you! - still got the R32?

    Hey Nick,

    There is one at Jaguar Classic Work’s for £59k...

    Yep. It’s the 911 of the 4x4 world

    Mine had the tow bar and it even has a sub-woofer. But not quite the go of the Cup!

    Hey Kev. Yep the R is still going. Hit 14000miles today. It’s amazing how the Clio makes the R feel sooo heavy and unwieldy in comparison. Although the 4WD is great in the current weather...

    It’s been a month without the Cup and I miss it. But I think Sean is a genius so waiting patiently for the mods to be completed.

    It's long way from the ones I grew up with, with a stray sheep and bail of hay in the back!

    It is a beauty and a credit to Kev'. Almost too nice to take anywhere near a track day. But as I am now officially middle-aged I will probably be the one driving round with "L" plates on at 40mph. :blush:
    BTW - Sean at Jade still waiting for the factory to make the Bilsteins. So looks like end of Feb before the car comes back...

    I still miss her, but more than happy you will look after her and care for her as she gets on exactly how it should be done.

    Welcome, looking good! And the upgrades are real nice so far! I've read you also drive a R32? I also have one as a daily

    Hey Rick. Thanks for the kind words and welcome.

    It’s an “R”. But I think the R32 is going to be more of a future classic so hold onto it!

    Thank you, it's something special. Still love it after 3 years! But your R is a beast aswell, even a facelift, good looking car!

    Banbury is a perfectionist - I had the pleasure if seeing the R up close, looks lovely and nicely detailed.

    Update (and yes, about time , I hear your you say...)

    -Bilsteins arrived from Germany plus ... Top mounts, Gripper diff, sequential + clutch, plus other bits I have forgotten in my excitement!

    Sean is going to be working overtime to get it all ready for Castle Combe.

    Thanks Pav,
    It’s been a looooong time coming, but now you tell me they worked for you, I can’t wait!
    Spoke to Sean today. Lots of prep going on. I’ve asked Sean to take pics, a bit like a mini-progress thread, and I’ll post for everyone.

    I know it has been a while but the car is ready. Yeah!

    Here it is with its older brother. The blue car had Jade Developments first Bilstein kit.

    I’ve heard folks say “it’s good as new” when they collect their cars after work etc.

    But this is better than new. Way better! Gearbox is mega after rebuild, steers by thought rather than even thinking about it. Roundabouts are a riot.

    When I’m back home I’ll upload the build pics than Sean took.
