They have to change it. Namby pamby safety legislation won't let them build the old one for much longer. It's also very expensive to build as it's largely assembled by hand.

I can see production of the current Defender being moved to India when the new one is introduced. That may not be a bad thing.

There is a "I hate my LR" forum;

Brilliant reading! Nowthen we have to be careful because the first day my mate saw my Soul he looked at that little bit over the windscreen and immediately likened it to a LR disco. What an insult.

I've had that too. I can tell you that from an engineering and quality point of view the Soul is leagues ahead of a Mini.

The only comment Ive had about mine so far was " it looks like a gangster car " not sure if thats good or bad ?

I drive a black Chrysler 300C and I get that all the time along with drug dealer references.
