Today is a sad day as I bid farewell to Larry the GLR Defender 90 TDCi XS. We’ve owned this Tonga Green lovely for 2 years and although we haven’t been on many adventures in it, we’ve done quite a lot of work and improvement. The reason for the sale is now that we have 2 dogs, there’s just not… Read more »

Some time ago I bought an ashtray (LR005248) to fit in the GLR Freelander 2. This was just to hold odds and ends. However it’s been taking up one of the cup holder locations which causes a problem for GLR staff when visiting their favourite drive through. I’ve seen the ash tray/oddments holder that fits in the rear of the… Read more »
Another year another MOT… As usual Terry from Ultimate 4×4 (previously Ultimate Land Rover) collected the GLR Freelander and returned it with a shiny new MOT certificate. No advisories!
As the GLR Freelander has its MOT tomorrow, I decided to get some new tyres as the current ones were getting close to the legal limit.

I’ve wanted a power socket in the boot since I’ve owned my current Freelander. I’ve had one in all the previous Freelanders I’ve owned. I generally use them for powering my coolbox but have used it for powering a small compressor for pumping up tyres. Not long after I bought the current Freelander, I had to take it in for… Read more »
