United Kingdom 1998 Defender 90 V8 Petrol 50th Auto Chawton White
Defender SE D200 ordered

After hundreds of builds on the Land Rover configurator I finally made a decision yesterday and placed an order for a Defender D200 SE and I went a bit mad with the extras, the full spec is as follows

    Defender SE D200 in white ETA it's a 110
    Changing wheels to 19” gloss black alloys with off road tyres
    Privacy Glass
    Electrically Deployed tow-bar
    Sliding panoramic roof
    Ebony Grained leather seat facings with Ebony interior
    12-way heated and cooled electric memory front seats with 2-way manual headrests
    Light Oyster Morzine headlining

    Driver Assist Pack
    Adaptive Cruise Control
    Rear Collision Monitor


    Off-Road Pack
    Electronic Active Differential with Torque Vectoring by Braking
    Off-Road tyres
    Domestic plug socket


    Comfort and Convenience Pack
    Twin front cupholders with cover
    Front centre console refrigerator compartment
    Wireless device charging with phone signal booster


    Cold Climate Pack
    Heated washer jets
    Headlight power wash
    Heated steering wheel



    Front Classic Mudflaps

    Rear Classic Mudflaps


I have been given a delivery date of the 1st of October but I am taking that with a huge grain of salt Confused But can't wait for it to arrive whenever it does. The dealership let me have a D200 SE on an extended test drive for 4 days and that is what really made my mind up along with a small discount which helped things along. Laughing Cheers Ian

Very nice spec - interesting that you opted for the new 6 cylinder D200 - a lot of people that have driven this one find it perfectly capable and struggle to justify the increase in cost for the D250 and D300. When I spoke to the dealership about any worries I had about engines, they said that the old D200 could've done with a little more torque, whereas the new one performs very similar to the old D240 (in some cases better) - and this was the engine that was receiving strong reviews (used by most companies e.g. car wow and carbuyer etc when reviewing the Defender). With all this in mind, this is why I opted for the D200, and I may try and unlock its potential further down the line with some engine re-mapping.

Cheers Kubrick1978, I ended up choosing the D200 as I thought there was a £3500 price difference between the D200 & D250, but when I was placing the order the salesman said there is actually a £7970 difference between the 2! So that made the D200 a more sensible choice for me. As you say there are options down the line if you want to change to a D250 or D300 map, but I can't really see myself doing that. I do have a friend who has the D200 in a 90 and he loves it, he says it has plenty of power and like him I'm not really into 0-60 times and max power at my age, I'm much more of a sedate driver now Laughing I may look at adding the Advanced Off-Road Capability Pack mainly for the Configurable Terrain Response and hopefully the TR2 has improved from when I had it on my Range Rover. On the FFRR if you had it in auto on cold mornings it used to delay the throttle response so you would be at a junction and need to pull away quickly and it just seemed to bog down so I just used to turn it off Confused

3.0 D200 out performs the old 2.0 D240, on torque at least, 500Nm vs 430Nm.

That’s about 3 months I’ve had mine, very pleased with the D200. 21MY Defender 90 D200 S, Tasman Blue, Fuji White roof.
