Have a Disco Sport HSE black as a second car for the Defender.
Much quieter, smoother, posher and more gadgets, but still makes you smile. 100% recommendation from me. (actually my wife)
So far it's also not broken down. Bow down

Netherlands 2013 Defender 130 Puma 2.2 HCPU Santorini Black

I drove a couple diesel and petrol versions and have to say it’s just like any other family car today. Nothing special. That said, I liked it.
Enough room inside, simple dash design was a pleasure to look at.
Personally the car was also fast enough for me. Maybe the 150 bhp version would lack a bit? Never driven that one but it’s probably still faster than my Defender.

2013 Defender 90 Puma 2.2 XS CSW Santorini Black

I had one as a courtesy car for a few weeks some time ago. I think they look pretty good but the interior let them down a little. I liked the drive and it is more of a convenient size than the disco.

Well I test drove a late fl2 today, it would do the trick to be fair.

But thanks for the comments, I now need drive a DS.

Ginjez... It's a fantastic car, rear wheel drive, manual, big engine, wish I could keep it. instagram @v8_scumbag

There's a very late fl2 hse for sale at Land Rover Centre Huddersfield. They are great cars with all the toys. We've had three of them all with auto and all 100% reliable.
To go off at a tangent have you considered a Toureg?

We've also been thinking about a FL2 this weekend, but they seem to move fast with low miles Whistle

The hippo (Freelander 2) is a fantastic car. Probably the most reliable one I’ve ever owed. Get a map on it and they fly.
