Defender 90 Commercial
I configured a Defender 90 Commercial and passed it to my local dealer to see if l could get an order in.

Spec was as follows

D250 engine (forced, D200 "not available")
Detachable tow bar
Fog lights
Centre seat
Solar reflective windscreen
Mud flaps, front

Sadly the dealer has quoted 18 months delivery, which is just too long, they couldn't even order the D200 apparently
(The D250 is £3,000 more, for an extra 50bhp, and it looks like the difference is only software)

Yup I’m looking to change my 90 for a 90 Hard Top and pretty much as you’ve been told, up to 18 month wait and can’t have a D200. So I’ve knocked it on the head for the time being, I’m not paying £3k for 50hp. LR are fleecing those that are ordering at the moment. 23MY 110 D250 XS Edition, Hakuba Silver

Gone - 21MY Defender 90 D200 S, Tasman Blue, Fuji White roof.

l've ordered a LWB Jeep Wrangler.

Obviously not as good as a Defender, but £10,000 cheaper and available.

Shame about the Defender.
Maybe l will get one next time.

l'll say.

The Defender was awesome, and it was a base spec 90 Commercial on coil springs. The good thing is, if it takes 18 months to arrive, it will coincide nicely with our mortgage finishing, which will mean we've got more spare cash to cover the payments of £300 per month (with a 25,000 deposit)

Definitely the right choice. Ordered a 200 HT in July, now a 250 with price hike, no idea when I'm going to see it. My Discovery has just clocked up 110k...
