After much deliberation I decided to sell the Defender on and go on the hunt for something with a bit more comfort! Finally I’ve found what I was looking for, a 2004 Discovery II ‘Landmark’ edition in……Epsom green. (Well it had to be really, didn’t it?) I pick it up on Thursday, so pictures will be posted up as soon as… Read more »
