They said everything including the 4wd & generator is working and they also said that it has got a winch which is removed & kept seperately.
Beautiful snaps of the LR

Thats the new American consulate site in BKC so i guess this one belongs to the American Consulate. Strange as it seems but from the Navigators and the Fords the Americans have moved to British or rather Indian Vehicles .

It runs on Consulate plates and is Bombay based. There are many Defenders (2 door and 4 door) that look like this one in the Country.

Yes but i was informed this perticular site is for the American Consulate. So does this mean i was misinformed about the perticular site in the pictures and is the British Consulate site.

very nice looking Defender indeed - Khaki Drab colour 110 chassis - looks straight out of one of those "desert safari/ adventurer/ explorer" movies!

Yes it is Bandra Kurla Complex & the circular shaped building seen in the 2nd & 4th pic is the newly opened TRIDENT Hotel & the site which is under construction is coming up with US consulate.Both Innova & Defender sported Embassy Number Plates.
