Hi Prithvi, you have got an amazing Landy with you mate! May she live a long life and overcome every obstacle that you throw at her.

BTW just wanted to know how easy is it to procure parts from the UK?

Cheers

Thanks Mate. Its easy to procure parts, but the freight and duty is the killing factor, but you are know you are getting the right OEM Part. Don't use Britpart for seals & important parts. All other things you could.

Prithvi - Gorgeous Defender you got, please post some more pics after the mods. You will need some wide wheels for those tyres.

I have fitted 285/75/16 on my Range Rover Classic, and the wheels are seriously slim. Importing wheels turns out to be super expensive though.

A great buy Prithvi.

Waseem,

Smile LHD Defender in McLeodGanj

Hello BHPians!
Found this German LHD Defender in McLeodganj when I was trekking out there on 17th Jan.
Beautiful color, fully equipped (with 2 spares, 4 aux fuel tanks, solar charger too), however, didn't see a snorkel air intake nor any winch.
Which makes me think this one may be used for travelling to camp sites and trekking or hiking on foot onwards by the owner.

Front view

Side view.
Please Note: The treads of the front and rear are different. However, both the spares had treads similar to the front tyres. Someone please explain.

Another side view

Interiors
Please explain: What is the yellow thing locking the steering wheel? And what is its use which the OEM lock doesn't fulfil?

Enjoy!

Don't think there is a specific reason. Might be that he's using worn out tyres as spares. They can be used anywhere (front or back).

An added security device - the steering grip lock. I use it in my Jeep too. Not theft-proof, but just makes things that much more difficult for a thief.

I remember seeing the Defender for the first time some 20 years back. Knew nothing about it, but was able to recognize it as the car that I saw in Discovery Channel helping humans shoot the lives of the African wildlife. You are one lucky man Prithvi, you have got the best off-roader ever .
