Is this a legal issue?

Wolf was introduced with the side mounted spare back in the late ’90s. Why is it suddenly a three million pound problem?

Could be a nuisance for a lot of Landrover owners with ex-military vehicles.

Is it me , or is Jaguar Land-Rover charging twice as much for pretty much the same item (but with different bolt-spacing)?? Or does it come with a gun rack for a brace of Purdeys?

Just put the spare back on the hood (bonnet?) as was done in olden times.
