Hello All

I have been a member for a while and have been happy with my Tdi defender for the last 4 or 5 years, its pretty much standard but has had full engine rebuild, gearbox,transfer box and various other bits done. I have driven to Spain, Scotland, Ireland and its been perfect every time.

However I am going to be moving to Spain and as its a van back I can not register it there, also with two kids now its not that practical. (I can not put wndows in as spanish law will only register if its 100% as it left factory and has good visibility)

So do I stick it in storage and keep it for sentimental reasons or sell it and buy something else?

I have seen a really tidy SJ locally with low miles and good bodywork which I could register in Spain and has seats and is a good little 4x4, or I could get a Jimny...

What do I do??

Many Thanks
James

Personally storing it is just hassle, it'll go down hill condition wise, you have to pay storage and maintain something that you aren't going to use, presumably even if you come back you'll have the kids so it won't be any use then. It's value may go up whilst it's in storage, that seems to be a defender thing, but I wouldn't imagine by that much so if you ever wanted another one they're pretty common so you should be able to hunt around and find one.

Personally if I was buying a car for Spain I would want air conditioning!
