There's about to be another one in the area. I drive from Glasgow to Aberfoyle six days a week for work. Just waiting on it being delivered to the dealer. Hopefully by next weekend!

Do seem to be racking up the sales.

Saw my first 90 in the flesh this evening, literally at the same place of my only 110 sightings. I'm not quite sure how a vehicle can be both large and short all at the same time but a 90 seems to pull it off! Steve N | 21MY Defender | 08MY Discovery 3 (history) | 06MY Discovery 3 (ancient history)

JMac, we’ll all have to have a meet up in the summer! One of the Forest Park managers used to be my next door neighbor and still lives not far away - will have to see if we can get a permit for a wee Forest Drive away from the 3 Lochs Drive.
My brother-in-law and nephews own the The Station coffee shop in the Main Street in Aberfoyle and the Carbeth Inn Coffee shop as well as the Oak Tree Inn in Balmaha so plenty of scope for meet up rendezvous! Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

Absolutely Tim. I have just joined the GRC and expect to be on most of the drives planned so far. Likely meet you there?

I’m in the pharmacy in Aberfoyle. Kept pretty busy at the moment so relishing the ability to escape at the weekends once wee Nic allows it!

I think JLR need a good March to get a good Q4 and maybe put a good end on a poor 2021 financial year.

Figures from Europe to end Feb show a depressing picture, which may indicate the supplier issues that anecdotally are there but JLR are publically dismissing:

There does seem to be a 3 month cycle - look at the highs of June, September and December. Maybe a real push to get vehicles out in the final month of each quarter to make bonuses?

Boot mat arrived today, not an LR one as they were on back order plus dealer wanted £150 for a tiny bit of rubber. Got the New Defender Parts one, £60 free UK delivery. Will see what the quality is like but so long as it does the job. I’ll post a couple of pics once fitted.

Side steps will hopefully get fitted end of the month. 21MY Defender 90 D200 S, Tasman Blue, Fuji White roof.

All fitted, does the job nicely, doesn’t have the big flap thing that the LR one has but don’t really need it on the 90 as nothing big is going in there.

Note the seats don’t go flat, even pushing them down there’s no locking in place

For anyone buying a 90, I’d recommend the NDP one, it’s cheaper and it’s a decent chunk of rubber.

First fuel up today, £95 Shocked

It’s been a while since I’ve had a fuel bill that big, to be fair it was near the red.

Found a couple of stickers in a draw so stuck them on, not sure if I will keep them on.

That wasn't too bad, I maxed out the pump at £99, but at least you should be showing a decent range, 550mls. I managed 37mpg the other day but usually 32/34. Your cars looking great! 90S D250 fuji and loving it.

Easily get to near £110 in mine. I usually leave it until it’s single figure miles remaining.
