Land Rover Defender Td5 XS

Sellers Comments - This is a top spec XS Defender that also has an extensive list of modifications. Has been serviced twice a year by myself. Genuine reason for the sale. This has been the best Land Rover/car I’ve owned and has taken me all over on many adventures. Roof tent and awning NOT included in sale, these are getting put straight on my new car so please don’t ask.. Mileage is 155000. 12 months MOT. XS spec includes heated seats, heated windscreen, central locking, alarm and immobiliser and air con which would require a condenser and re-gas to work. Modifications: Genuine LR roof rack with spotlights, Snorkel,Raised axle and transmission breathers, Britpart 12000lbs winch with synthetic rope and isolation switch , Steering guard, Front diff guard, Tree sliders, HD springs all round,Britpart supergaz dampers, Cranked trailing arms, 255/85/16 toyo mt tyres (these are 33” tall), Wheels spacers, CB radio, Roof Console, Bluetooth head unit, Amber flashing beacons front and rear, Split Charge system and leisure battery, Ifor Williams canopy with shelving, LED lights, USB and 12v sockets, Chequer plate wingtops and rear quarters, Td5 inside remap,EGR delete,Decat and centre muffler delete, Rear work lights, Fuel pump access hatch in boot floor, Probably more that I have forgotten. Bad bits: NS top of bulkhead is starting to rust (weld in panels will be provided), Drivers door bottom and B pillar rusty (B pillar repair panel will be provided), Clutch thrust bearing bearing is noisy only when cold, Paintwork is scratched from Green Lane use, All the standard Land Rover oil seepage you would expect, Wheels are a bit tatty. Please bear in mind this is a 16 year old Landy and is not a show pony but it has been looked after and only used for Green Laning. I have carried out lots of maintenance over my ownership, a test drive will confirm how nice this Defender drives and it’s without any death wobble and can happily sit at motorway speeds.
