    Well after 2 1/2 years without a Freelander, I'm back. :D

    Some may remember my old Freelander. Was well modified, and spent most its time on green lanes. Really miss it.

    And this is the new one. Picked last night, will get some better pics when I've got time.

    Already has a egr bypass valve fitted and BMW crankcase filter mod.
    Ordered, roof rails, Silicone hoses, tailored mats, a spare 17" alloy, roof ariel, a fascia adapter and audio harness.
    Needs a drop link, few scuffs to sort out and a few other bits. :)

    Cheers mate, this won't be anything like the last one. Got a MK4 Escort that most my cash gets spent on. :)

    Cheers mate, loved building the last one. The wheels are genuine freelander alloys. And tyres are nearly new on front and brand new on the rears. So will be staying for a while. :)

    Haha last one had 2" lift kit and 2" Tyre lift, not doing all that again lol :)

    Oh how I had to laugh at the irony of those messages!
    When its obvious from the pic that the car has been lifted. I wonder why this one is "a credit" where as yours is a weapon of mass destruction?

    Yeah but it looks rubbish on your motor and being a miserable sod you didn't send me a free sample to put on my red fire engine so as peeps can see how it could look. :mad:
