  1. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    completely agree, and it looks like you have a pretty high level trim on that bad boy, x-dynamic? Black would have been my second choice I think! If you jump through all the hoops with a factory order it's possible to get a defender at basically the same price, less even if you settle for the...

    Congrats! I was considering posting my wildtrack cancellation email too :P
  3. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Personally as I mentioned earlier, I found the P300 drives better than the P400. I was assuming I'd want the big engine as well until I actually drove the cars. the small engine still has a tow rating thats more than double the the bronco's. Also on paper its a more fair comparison with the...
  4. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Yeah if you're going base the bronco makes sense, it really depends what you want the car for. Yeah if you are going base the bronco is going to be way cheaper, but it's not a fair comparison as the defender comes with way more stuff standard. So if you don't want that stuff, then it has no...
  5. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    I'd argue once you start specing things the defender gets even cheaper. If you add all the features that are standard on a defender into your bronco build they become basically the same price. Particularly if you can live with the smaller engine. The Land rover options are expensive, but I...
  6. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Thats 78k CAD, so basically free for you guys down there... I drive an FJ now which also has a horrible B pillar in it's blind spot, so it didn't bother me, my wife mentioned it tho. These cars have blind spot detection standard, so you get a little warning icon in the side mirrors, and the...
  7. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Yeah if you swap cars before the warranty runs out why would you get an extended... They aren't scams tho, well they are just like insurance is a scam... I had extended on a ML500 that paid out around $25k worth of repairs. I wouldn't touch a third party warranty, but as long as you get...
  8. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Yes, all 110's have air suspension standard. the 90 with the P300 is the only one that doesn't, but I believe it's an option if you do want it.
  9. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    This is for a P400 they had on the lot. These are CAD's
  10. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Yeah I guess we are kind of assuming the bronco will be more reliable, can never really know. Bronco will be great, it's just overpriced IMHO.
  11. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Definitely, the reliability is a bit of a gamble, but it's a different class of truck. Comparing to other european luxury SUV's, which it genuinely can be compared to, reliability looks much better. The luxury aspect requires complexity, so that's really the trade off. If mine starts having...
  12. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Yeah, thats what happened to me and I realized the bronco I wanted was almost the same price. Nice build, keep in mind that you don't need the "towing pack" it just add's a bunch of software crap to help you line up the hitch, all you need is the tow hitch. I'd also suggest dumping the...
  13. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Thanks! Yup it's a 110, here is what I ordered : https://build.landrover/DFECB7F4 . It was a tough choice between those rims and the rear locker, they don't let you order both for some stupid reason, and those rim's are $7k to order separately. I also haven't seen any after markets that...
  14. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Just figured I'd update here, drove the P300 as well as the P400, and I honestly liked the P300 more. It felt more responsive and peppy, I also liked the brakes better. It's definitely significantly slower than the P400, but it did not feel underpowered. There was just something off about...
  15. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Maybe not with a third party, but when you can get the factory warranty extended to 10 years why would one even consider a third party? I guess beyond 10 years it's your only option, but third party warranties on cars that old are dodgy anyway.
  16. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Looks badass, what did he have to do to get them to fit? gotta be more than johnson rods.
  17. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Lol, I know exactly what you mean, and this is why I think I'm leaning towards the defender. Yeah it's more, but it's also a far better vehicle for a daily driver, and will still get you most places a bronco would. To me the relatively small difference in price makes the broncos cost hard to...
  18. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Yeah it adds up fast, and it's definitely a good chunk above a bronco if you decide you need the P400. I feel like I'd regret getting the P300, but then I think about what I could buy for the difference, lol. Definitely still on the fence. Just remember if you get the big engine you can't get...
  19. Compared to a Defender - some general thoughts and concerns.

    Make sure you try the P400 then, its quick, and is probably worth the $$'s. Just wish I could test drive a bronco before I fully commit, like everyone else on this forum :P
