Can we 'filter out' the new Defender in 'new posts'?

Ok, I know it's unlikely, and I know I might be in a minority.... maybe....

When I visit the site, I usually go straight to 'new posts' and see what's fresh. At the moment, instead of looking to see which topic looks interesting, I'm having to look down the left hand column first to see which forum it's in, and mentally filtering out the ones that relate to the new Defender.

I'm sure it's a really great car etc etc but personally, now that I've seen it, it's only a passing interest for me. With my Defender and my P38 I've enough to be going on with.

Sorry to be negative - and I'm definitely not 'trolling' - I've got so much from this forum since I joined that I'd say it's been invaluable, and I still appreciate what it has to offer.

I do wonder if the new Defender more readily belongs in another one of the FFRR, Disco3, Freelander etc family of linked forums rather than here? Donald

England 2002 Defender 90 Td5 HT Epsom Green

I like the 2020.....well apart from the price, its not a TD5 and does not come in red.... Whistle

However i do want to see what the new owners do with it, how they use it and the modifications made to suit their requirements.

So maybe Martin could break up the thread into sub headings as there is with the rest of the website.

ie Picture, Spotted, modifications, hints and tips etc.

What does everyone think. we have to love our past but not tell new owners that they are not wanted...

Ach aye, no doubt.

Thanks for the link Tim - I hadn't paid that much attention to that thread - and I had no idea at all that the notion of new model was behind the actual name of the forum!

Ironically though, Martin's comments about owners of older models being "shoved off" by discussion about the new model is kind of the way I felt when I dropped in this evening - discussions about snorkels and wheel alternatives for the 2020. It's jist that feeling that prompted me to write my first post.

Maybe it's just been an odd evening, and all the oily blokes talking about diffs and UJs are out in the garage!

Mark - I think I'm just one of the folk who feel that the Grenadier is a much more interesting prospect than the 2020.

I could end up being sorry I started this.... Donald

I'm with Donald on this. For me, whilst the 2020 may be a great vehicle it is a completely different one to the original Defender and maybe it should have its own forum Santorini 90XS SW

Thanks Martin - that would be good.

I fully accept the logic of the comments you made in the other linked thread, but the filtering ability would be great. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Donald
