    I have never been deep into Landys so will like to know more about it. I have few questions ,hope you will answer then for my education.

    This particualr model of Land Rover or Range rover is no more to be seen in countries like China, Korea, Japan etc. They have newer models like modern day SUVs of Toyota , Honda, etc. Is this model is still in production around the world.

    Old Man Emu kit. What is this and from you can get it.

    Did you import seats and outer panels from UK.


    Was the interior done in Karachi like carpeting, seat covers, steering covers etc.

    The exterior lights are also imported?

    How do you rate it as compared to LC, or Pajero. Performance and cost.

    I will be grateful to learn more about this car which I have mostly seen on National Geographic and Discovery channels. Thanks.

    MICS

    Land Rover Defender 110, is still in production. Pls refere to LandRover web site for more information and technical specs.

    http://www.landrover.com/gb/en/Vehicles/Defender/Models/Defender_110_station_wagon.htm

    Although there have been some minor changes over the years, basic body shape is probably about 30 to 50 years old. (storm can probably comment on this).

    Old Man Emu, is a springs and shocks (suspension) kit made by an Australian company called ARB. They make these for other 4x4s as well.

    Their web site address is: http://www.arb.com.au/

    I was not happy with the ride quality and handling of my landy and that is why I replaced the stock factory fitted springs and shocks with Old Man Emu kit.

    Both the ride quality and handling are superb. I am not sure how they compare to japanese SUVs as I have not driven them.

    The seats and the interior was all done in Karachi.

    Again the quality of factory fitted seats and interior was very poor. Probably due to the fact that land rovers are being assembled in Pakistan for Pak army, and some (like mine) are being sold in the civilian market.

    Exterior lights: I bought most of these in the US and hand carried them back. So yes they are imported.

    In terms of cost, hey can you get land cruiser or pajero band new 2005 for 23 lakhs?

    Racer: Allah Ka Karam hai kay cheez achee bun gai. All I did was put in the effort.

    Storm: Do both. Get the Beetle and do up your Defender. Really the stock seats, shocks, and springs have to go. The difference is more than dramtic.

    Assalamwalikum.
