Bro seen this amazing Defender last week. More details here :

Quote:
I flew into Mumbai on the last day of August to encourage the Indian Authorities to swiftly release our vehicles. The G4 Land Rover support vehicle shipped from New Zealand arrived prior to the main shipment from Europe and was therefore a little further through the clearance procedure. A drive across the chaotic sprawl of Bombay is always time consuming, so the fifty kilometres to Nava Sheva port where our vehicles must be processed took more than two hours. I then spent the day waiting, signing my name innumerable times, waiting some more, walking from warehouse to warehouse, waiting a little more, signing again with still no glimpse of any ‘Tangiers Orange’ to raise my hopes. Finally, I was informed it would be ready for collection the next day which although aggravating was progress.

Sure enough, by close of business the following day I was duly reunited with our trusty Defender. I had also managed to gain access to the rest of the vehicles which for one reason or another could not be ‘unstuffed’ without fettling. Luckily, most issues were resolved during the afternoon ready for inspections and the next tick of the box. In due course, the remaining vehicles from Europe were released and moved to a warehouse outside the bonded area. All in all I have been very happy with our agents dealing with the process of temporary importation.

The alloy wheels that you're talking about, as seen on this Defender are LR alloys, not aftermarket.

Yes Marcus I agree. You can see the scratched logo on the hub cap but IMO it looks out of place.
