Hey all, ok I am convinced ... I'd like a 6500 :)   Before I hit up for a new one .. anyone thinking of selling theirs ... a good second hand one would be ok .. you don't even need to ship to New Zealand I can handle that via NZ Post forwarding service :) 

Any offers of interest??  

:)

Cheers

<crickets chirping>  Wow.  With all the complaining I read on this forum a couple of weeks ago, you would think there would be a line waiting at the post office.  :)

And it is amazing how much the problem list has gone now most people understand how the 1.4 works and what has changed.
Keep an eye out for a used one, every so often some sad sap will sell theirs to make a point of some kind, notice they never just advertise it like everyone ales. They go I'M SELLING MY FLEX BECAUSE_______

Simon,

I'd sell my 6500 in a heartbeat, if I were single. I'd like to upgrade to a 6700, but I don't have the cojones to broach the subject with her at this time.

Yes love them...think mine might have had them before the previous owner swapped them for mud tires and steel wheels. Guess you are on Landy Zone. Good luck with finding the 6500, Hope you acquire one soon.

Holy Camoly Simon, I am drooling. Love the Landys and the fun you guys have, awesome. Thanks for the link, I will save it. I am doing some mods, upgrades and maintenance to my 97 Defender, I also have an 89 Land Rover CSW

Can't wait to get 2 and 10 meter radios in there. Working on setting up dual batteries with isolated charging for the Ham radios and other accessories. Landys make a great mobile Ham rigs. :o)
