I'd go TD5 myself, great engine with bucket loads of potential and a proper Land Rover dash with openy-venty thingers in, not that nasty great plastic monstrosity they shoehorned into the new ones....

I gotba td5 130 and love it. It's not chipped. Is there a chip I can get that will give more power pulley away and better mpg without trashing the engine?

I think the later Td5 are the best Defenders going, the last of the true workers. Chipped and straight through exhaust as above makes it beastly!

I had a TD5 and thought it was mint, but...... I was told through the grape vine that the MOD did not buy the TD5 as it was prone to breaking down???

 

Dont know how true this is but i thought id let you know just in case there is some truth in it :thumbup1:

 

Good luck with the hunt though mate, but wouldnt you rather have a Hi-Lux :001_tt2::lol::thumbup1:
