I see they took up the helpful solution from the warranty team with regards to the best way to solve leaky rear diffs.

Wales 2007 Defender 90 Other CSW Willow Green

I admire the advances that the JLR innovations team are making by designing the body to articulate rather than the axle. Thumbs Up For those who like Welsh Mountains and narrow boats have a look at my videos

United Kingdom 2008 Defender 110 Puma 2.4 XS CSW Java Black

The Telegraph today (Saturday 17dec16) said that at the launch of the new Disco, the DC100 concept car was displayed. But then nothing. No pictures or even a description.

Anyone know more?

What Goes into Designing Stylish Cars

Some interesting bits from the Prof - http://www.architecturaldigest.com/story/l...ylish-cars

If you replace Defender for Discovery then you may see what we have to look forward to:

"One thing thatís been missing from the Discovery, as much as it is liked, is that it's coming from a very functional base. People love the idea of its versatility; its capability is a given. The trick is to make it more universally desirable without making it generic."

"Through design, we could create desirability. Once technology has become comparable throughout the industry, what are you left with? Itís your brand, and itís the design."

"Tata explained how design needed to be an entity in its own right. It changed straight away. That made a massive difference in the culture, particularly at Land Rover, which was about functionalism. Design was just seen as an addition. That was a fundamental shift."

Seems like more than a change but a complete role reversal according to the new mantra - and an explanation as to why the Defender keeps being pushed into the long grass:

"I think the Land Rover brand lends itself to all types of white-space opportunities."
