If its Romano your talking to, I have done a few deals for parts with him and always found him fair to deal with.

From what l have seen of the work, he's done on a few of his Landrovers they are well presented.( never tried or tested them)

Otherwise I have no connection with them.
Cheers

Hey,

I know I am new around these parts and as such my word doesn't have much weight, however, I would recommend Phoenix based on what I have seen and how they have dealt with me.  I have just purchased a P38 from them that, yes, requires work but that was how it was advertised. One look around the shop and you will not believe your eyes! Romano has some lovely Defenders there that are complete or near complete and I would be very very proud to own one of them! On top of that he is a lovely fella to talk to, he is polite and knowledgeable about his subject and very fair. He has done very well by me and if it was a defender I was looking for I would definitely consider one of his.

Had some dealings with them a couple of years ago.  Wouldn't use them again.

yeah..I think I want to change my post. There is no way this RR was running the way he said before I bought it. Yeah I know I bought it as a non runner, but, I am in the middle of a full engine rebuild for a RR that just had a diesel pump fault!
