Is there any shepherd(s) left to tend the flock?

As per title - no pun intended - as I've kindly asked to split a topic on Aug. 26 and no action until now....
Sorry for insisting, but I was the one in transgression and I've reported myself... Laughing Laughing Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads... Go beyond !

There are now no specific FL2 "shepherds" left, it appears elements of the "flock" has driven them all away.

The land owner (Martin) is the only one "penning us in" now. Wink

Bit sad really, as the "shepherds" did a great job. Sad 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲

Replacement choices are :-

2.2 Evoque - for the members with no resident kids
2.2 DS - for the members with growing families

After all, both the above are basically just FL2 underneath Whistle 2001 FL1 TD4 GS Auto 3 Door Tonga Green

I know, I was thinking of a more direct replacement with the 2.2 being the same SD4 as FL2.

agreed - A more 'current' replacement is the 2.0 'Ingenious' engine range stuck in the existing older DS and Ewok bodies with little or no gain over the 2.2 tractor. Thumbs Up 2001 FL1 TD4 GS Auto 3 Door Tonga Green

Sorry for misspelling "shepherd".... Embarassed
Still learning and standing corrected now.
If I could just read and write Russian as much as English will be a great achievement as their forum is full with good info and ingenious solutions. Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads... Go beyond !

Romanian tenants next door, always out the back shouting and yelling at each other, on their mobiles or Skyping family back home. Surprised I'm not fluent by now

Alex's English is better than some of ours! And his knowledge of the FL2 is better than everyone's! Learned to drive in 2011.
Bought a Micra - great little car
"Upgraded" to Kia Sportage - hated it
Proper upgrade to FL2 TD4 GS 60 reg Facelift - tailgate paint issues, fuel gauge rewire, transfer box failure at 36k miles

Well I have to say I partly agree with most of that Razz

The part I would question is that possibly LRNUT knows more about the marque and all the shiny bits to include Land Rover Rolling with laughter 51 Series one passed/sold on half restored to a mate to finish years ago.
