Hi everyone,

I'm Andy, 49 and live in near Snitterby in the northern part of Lincolnshire. I thought I'd say hello as I've recently ordered and paid my deposit on a Grenadier. I've gone for a diesel Station Wagon in Magic Mushroom with Rough Pack, 18" alloys, black leather (which I'll probably then just over with cloth covers!), tailgate table, interior utility rails, emergency kit plus and the wild luxury of heated washer jets! Spoke to the dealer this morning and we are apparently looking at an April build, which I thought was pretty good.

As I haven't signed my contract yet, I can still change the spec, so I'll be very interested to hear about any 'must haves' that people are adding :)

Best,
Andy

Sounds a great delivery forecast. Welcolm from another yellow belly

Must have at order time, if you want them, are Safari windows, diff locks & wiring kit.
They can't be fitted later

Thanks for this. I've gone for the diff locks and I'll take a look at the options again for the wiring kit. I'm not sure about the Safari windows - they look like something that might end up leaking! :)

They end up letting the light into your driving suite! My sunroof in the Defender is waterproof since I rebuild the rusty and broken iron fittings in the front with stainless steel sheets.
If I can do it Ineos can do it as well!

I have ordered all 3
The safari windows seal very well from what I have seen.
They are hinged at the front and the rear is a very simple hinged lock that takes a bit of strength to close.
the seal itself was substantial
Of course we won't know until a few years time.

Even if you only use 20% of what the wiring harness offers I think it is well worth it.

Welcome to the forum Andy. I'm sure you will find it as useful, entertaining and informative as myself.
Just beware , many of us are not as useful as the Cat , but we aim to entertain and on occasion , completely derail threads - to the consternation of others :LOL:

Yup, just need to occasionally clean the little drains that run from the safari windows to the A pillar(?). Didn’t check but that’s where they normally exit.

I'll keep an eye out for it passing by the Oak in the near future!
