Sub categories work fine.
It would be good though if categories of no interest could be effectively blocked as it can be a little annoying to find a category on the forum is if no interest contains new posts if that makes sense.

I’m all for off roaders and not urban cruisers. So the 2007 - 2016 Defender, D44 challenge tricks and Ibex / Grenadier type vehicles float my boat. Jeep even. (Except that’s even go downhill with Fiat’s involveme by a given half vs a chance!)

Definitely think Martin is right, don’t change what works.
There was the 2.4 to 2.2 Defender change too not so long ago and not a lot a changed there either.

LR is not for me anymore either, I am happy bc with what I have and will stick to it for certain. Diesels Lives Matter

This site came about in 2008 as the Defender replacement was "imminent" at that time, it's not my fault LR delayed it by so long Rolling with laughter

So that's why it was "Defender2" - it was intended to be for the next-gen car.

In the meantime we ended up with a forum that's established itself for the "classic" Defender but with effectively the wrong name Laughing


I never understood the name of this forum. I'm so happy I finally stumbled upon this post! Defender 130 HCPU Td5 MY2000

England 2002 Defender 90 Td5 HT Epsom Green

With that logic i would have loved it if Martin had changed the name of the forum to Defender 3 for today only (April 1st) in 'readiness for the next gen Defender'........ Whistle

Can you imagine the response from some circles..... Shocked

Scotland 2016 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 Heritage Edition SW Grasmere Green

The forum is great as it is.

It's helpful that when I click on new posts, there is the L663 suffix on each forum, so I know if they are relevant or not. Current Steeds:
2015 110 UW in Grasmere Green
2003 BMW F650 the Hack
2000 Elise
1992 Ducati 888 (no longer in bits, yahoo)
1988 TDR 250 (curently in bits)

United Kingdom 2014 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 USW Corris Grey

Been on here for a while and think the name should stay.

Grenadier.com is greatly needed as it’s nothing to do with defender new or old. It’s like having a jeep section.
