France 2009 Defender 110 Puma 2.4 XS CSW Zermatt Silver

Ok so I have placed my order with callum today at alive for the suspension package.
Apparently I am the second order.
Seems strange that 27 people have expressed an interest and only two firm orders.
Callum has requested that further orders be placed via e mail for the attention of callum.
Thanks to Simon for organizing this group buy.

I have placed mine as well, hopefully I wasn't counted before so that makes three orders, 12 more needed now!

I would say 285 looking at the price list Alive sent me, but talk to Alive and say you are doing it as part of this

After a period of contemplation

Small has come to the conclusion that she would like the full works. After looking at the benefits that the new set up gives and looking at the downsides which, given her usage ,appear to be none, I contacted Alive to see how the group buy was progressing.
Well, it appears that given the initial quite positive responses , the actual rate of conversion from interested to ordering appears to be 2 definite and 1 possible. This is nowhere near the required 15. Small is a definite and will be booking the slot to have her 90 done around the end of the month, before the possibility of a "Group Buy" ends. About another 10 needed, so some finger extraction is obviously required, Exclamation
Surprised at this as Simon has obviously made an effort to get this arranged, but you have 2 weeks left and then Big Cry

Not sure where we are with this, but to confirm, I'm a definite for the combined pack. Plus ARB and bushes. Funds ready and keen to avoid them being re appropriated by Mrs Grenadier for something she spots at John Lewis Whistle Monsieur Le Grenadier

No, did not bother to measure the drop, but looks like about 3/4", judging from the increased garage clearance.
The comfort is a huge improvement for road use, which is what Small uses it for mainly. I have kept the old parts so any future owner can change back Thumbs Up 2015 Defender 90"
