Need to move on, as change in personal circumstances mean significant mileage about to be put on this lovely truck. Had her 12 months, and was sorting everything as plan was to have her as a daily driver (see list below). Really a "no expenses spared" approach to my ownership;

So, the basics
1st registered 18/1/04
Java Black, 2.5Tdi, Auto, Central Diff Lock, 7 Seats.
ES Premium specification (electric seats, arm rests, heated, Becker Traffic-Pro Navigation, fatter "G4" roof bars, black leather, real veneer inlay on transmission tunnel (fake above glovebox - thanks Land Rover!), reversing sensors, 18" factory alloys, heated power-fold wing mirrors)
2 keys - all 5 door locks work from the fob (along with alarm / immobiliser) - 2nd key currently residing with my local independent garage.
Have EKA code, owners manual, jack, chocks, locking wheel nut key.
Cruise Control
Just rolled over the 100K - 22nd May '18 (sadly took photo of odometer!)
No rust on chassis...... has been power washed and undersealed professionally.
11 Month's MoT, single advisory for oil leak (not got round to rectifying just yet)
ACE fully operational
On windy bags at rear, (works perfectly, including ORM)
Understood to have originally been dealership demonstrator so with headlamp guards and rear at high level, side steps, privacy glass to rear.
No water ingress to cabin from sunroof / windscreen etc.
Has been visited by Mike at Dynachip, lovely map. (pulls from 60mph to over 90mph without effort, apparently.........)
EGR and cat still fitted, so no MoT worries under new regs.

Service book stamped, plus receipts for the following work over the past 12 months;
New Radiator, top hose, EGR cooler hose
New Head Gasket (incl oil change, filter change, injector washers, head skim, steel dowels etc)
Had injectors correctly coded.
New Injector
New ride height sensors (old ones were working but plastic bushes degrading)
New water pump
New alternator
New auto gearbox filter and full gearbox oil change (just as a precaution, but changes now are like silk, and TC locks-in at around the 48mph mark)
New tyres on 11/11/17 - 255/60R18, 4 General Grabber AT2 + 1 General Grabber AT3 as spare - these are lovely - no wondering / tram-lining (often a problem with 18" rims)
Undersealed (9 years 5 months left of a 10 year warranty, transferable)

Other works undertaken by me;
Replaced sat-nav unit (with original specification unit)
Replaced GPS sensor
Replaced front sunroof motor
Re-trimmed headlining (no sagging) and all associated trim deep cleaned.
Re-trimmed handbrake and transfer box gates
Re-polished veneer on transmission tunnel
Replaced headlamp guards
Installed OEM cruise control.
Replaced blown bulbs on climate control module.
Replaced front door cards with new old stock (so no worn alcantara inserts)
ACE transducer on valve block replaced.
Fitted Dixon-Bate tow bar and electrics (only used to carry a Thule bike rack - NO towing)
3.5mm Aux-in (e.g. for Ipod) fitted in cubby box, retains CD multi-changer fully functional.
Replaced gutter "hockey sticks" over the rear door as originals had split.

What haven't I got around to;
Sorting little surface rust on lower portion of rear window frames NS & OS, and to underside of rear door step.
Replacing front fog lamps, as original lenses have gone cloudy (seem to be a common issue) still fully functional, replacements available.
Drivers side rear electric window a little lazy.

The truck can be seen either in Blackheath London or near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, depending on where I am, as I am spending my time across both locations now (hence the reason for sale/company car)

Reduced to £3950. For sale now as have today just concluded a deal on a vehicle through my company.
