Anyone know what happened, I never see them discuss it anymore- then again I may be in the wrong channel.
I watched one episode where they had "their" defender with stock tires and it got TWO flat tires on really basic trail. The more I watch them the less impressed I am.
I used the quotes because it was their second or third Defender based on their troubled history at the onset of their ownership experience. I am not suggesting they didn't buy it.It is "their" defender though, unless Roman has outright lied about purchasing it. Does it get any more real world than hitting the trails with the oe tires? Not saying they couldn't have avoided popping them but immediately swapping to meaty a/t or m/t tires kind of messes up the reviewing process IMO anyway.

I disagree about the tires. Land Rover woefully underequips their vehicles with respect to tires, and if you are planning on actually using one off road, you absolutely should put a proper set of tires on the vehicle. To not do so is irresponsible. In general I think their driving leaves a lot to be desired, and they make everything way way WAY over dramatic. I forget which video it was, (it was a few years ago) but they were describing this particular obstacle as this gnarly thing that only lifted and locked Jeeps on 37's should attempt, and some dude in a Syncro Vanagon on bald tires cruised up it in the background without even slowing down. LOL.
I wonder if LR bought it back for 100% to get rid of the negative publicity. Like TFL or not they seem to rate every vehicle fair, currently they are showing the blown shock on the bronco.This didn’t get the one they wanted and by the time Land Rover got them a vehicle they had already moved on. Not to mention they seemed to be snake Bit with there Defender.
I guess we disagree- they are not very clickbaitish compared to most YouTubers- they show it how it really is-good or bad imo.It’s likely old news now.
the cars have been out a while and bar the minority still saying “It’S nOt A rEaL dEfEnDeR”
the overwhelming majority of people who have one, love it and are extremely pleased with its abilities.
I would agree on tyres but then with new WLTP regs, fitting more aggressive tyres would have to be tested and Costed etc so JLR may have taken the decision to not.
TFL do like to over egg stuff and can deliberately make an ******** of things on purpose to get clicks and views.
look at the wording on some of their videos.
“You’ll never guess what broke”
“We were scammed”
