    Last time I owned a Freelander there was the Freelander Club. Tried going on their site and nothing there. Anyone know where the site has gone?

    I believe the current officials wanted to stand down having done the job for a number of years, but no-one wanted to take over.
    They had a formal meeting a couple of weeks ago to decide the future of the club, but I don't know the outcome.
    If their site is down it doesn't look promising though.

    Probably a stupid remark and also totally irrelevant but what I wondered already a couple of times is "why is, on ads etc... the Defender always placed last in the LR hierarchy ??" Is it because they are the best and don't need any attention or what ? All the adds I've seen so far show the RR on top followed by the RR Sport, the Discovery, the Freelander and then comes the Defender ??

    Thats a very good question.

    I've noticed every time you see someone buying a Defender, straight away they start creating a list of modifications. It's as if the Defender itself in standard form isn't good enough when they get it, and they need to mod it to make it bearable. Perhaps that's why the Defender's at the bottom of the Land Rover list?

    In all seriousness maybe it gives an old fuddy-duddy image, something which earns Landrover money & they can use to play the rugged nostalgia card every so often but which doesn't provide a forward thinking vision to attract the younger customers they'll need to survive in the future.
