    You realize that RR is owned by BMW? LR and Jaguar are owned by Tata Motors which is indian.

    The companies are still British though and act independently from Tata/BMW for the most part.

    Just a Defender frame with a mule body, it will not look like this.

    Same with the new Ford Focus SUV

    New chassis with a mule (Kuga / Escape) body on top.

    JDM only means that the vehicle is (or was) intended for Japanese domestic market. Nothing else. Boring ass panel van can also be JDM. So can a heavy, slow, coal-rolling dump truck. I bet even the most die-hard JDM fanboys won't want to drive them.
    Also: stance, ridiculous camber, giant wheels and stupid stickers won't turn your Intrepid/Saxo/Samara into a JDM car, so don't even try.

    Three years on this forum and saying a Land Rover looks disabled is finally going too far? Wouldn't have thought that was the worst thing I've said, but okay I guess.

    Plus, the RR Holdings are british as well, which also own Rolls Royce.

    Am I the only one that thinks they'll take this over the FT-1?

    The dump truck maybe, but who knows, there probably is someone out there who would want a Toyota HiAce. I know the ambulance version had a 1UZ, and most of those are probably floating around the secondhand market by now, and also you could probably stuff a 2JZ into any of them, so potential sleeper?

    Also, that's kind of what I'm getting at anyway. Cars become popular specifically because they're from Japan. If the Skyline was a European or American car people just wouldn't be drooling over it the way they are now.

    I guess that might be because the 2019 Mercedes Benz CLS (for example, because they look similar) sounded promising, and then shattered the audience badly.

    I didn't realize it was possible for an R35 to get uglier.

    Those that claim cars with electronic gadgetry can't be repaired yourself just need to learn how to use an oscilloscope and a soldering iron

    Funny thing, the electrical engineer from my father's workplace failed to fix his second gen A6' dashboard (all warning lights are on for no reason).
