I don't understand what you mean when you say 'real-deal' Defenders. We've just recently approached the year range where importable trucks are equipped with 200TDi's, but there's virtually no difference between them and our NAS trucks aside from the powertrain. The trucks have gone largely unchanged since their birth, aside from TDi offerings and interior refinement.
I'm ready to get my hands on a new Puma with disc brake Salisburys, a TD5 and that new 6spd.
The Defender didn't exist until 1990/1991, friend.
It was simply the Land Rover Ninety and the Land Rover One Ten before that.
There are innumerable differences but I believe our obsessions are on slightly different levels so I won't bore you with my tedium.
And, uh, the TD5 and Puma are two different engines...
