    Hey all,

    Just saying hello, have just made the switch from Range Rover Sport V8 to a Puma 110.
    Haven't had the 110 delivered yet, hopefully in two weeks after my wish list has been done!
    Feeling excited about new adventures but will miss the luxury and power of my supercharged!

    Welcome to the forum [​IMG]

    If yer worried about the loss of luxury... have a sit down on a park bench. It will help yer get accustomed to yer new motor. ;)

    Welcome to the forum and you may miss your Supercharged RR but there always something when driving a defender it may be slow and spartan inside but it always put a smile and make you feel good when you are driving. Enjoy!!! Next time you will say RR who??

    Hi and welcome!

    We like pics. Don’t forget some decent security for the new Landy too.

    So, this is the fella, I'm not thrilled with the colour so am having a re-spray etc. Hopefully all completed after Easter!


    Yes! Thinking Disklok at the moment as I can't afford the removable steering wheel option yet.
    Will also get a tracker I think.

    Looks like bronze green on a fender. Different. Not bad at all.

    That colour makes it look like a proper landrover like they made before Thatcher ruled the country and everything started going to the dogs.

    That is a cool colour for a defender, the olive will grow on you I bet. Forget the Sport - that is a proper LR, not a RoadRanger ;)
