    The plate for the one I’m going to view is GL13YFG. Just had a look at MOT history and it failed one last year and then passed with a few advisories so I'll be asking about those in more detail

    Get them to put it through an MOT at a different place. Then i If the car looks & drives ok, at least get AA inspection. Full inspection of £191 on a £24,000 is probably worthwhile.

    Me too. Would not buy that one or anything that expensive, but instead finish my project P38, and get both P38's fully sorted on all the minor scratches & niggles. Maybe a holiday or two as well.

    If it's the same car that you posted the link for why is that number YT63XKV which doesn't come up on the DVLA website? Makes you wonder what they have to hide.

    the second reg was a comparison that @biketeacherdave put up although that was a 3.0 v6.

    but if what you say about mileage change on the reg op posted yes some serious questions needed

    Did some 1 call ?? Yes I compared the op car against the diesel, still wouldn't fork.out that much cash fir clearly a dodgy motor.
    What's all this re the milage ?? Did some 1 clock it ?? You can do a milage correction on these with decent diag gear.

    As an L405 owner and enthusiast of this model i can offer you as much advice for FREE as you can take buddy.

    My first bit of proper advice would be this: Don't listen to BS off dealers or those who think they know the model well albeit they have never owned one and that is no disrespect to anyone on here before anyone moans. These cars are bloody expensive and complicated.
    The early car models 2013/14 cars IMHOP as AN OWNER should be AVOIDED as they were plagued with trouble issues mostly electrical.
    The models to go for are the later 2015 onwards. Mine is a 2015 Autobiography 4.4 SDV8 which now has just clocked up 60500 miles with a 100% comprehensive service record from day 1.
    I am the second owner too and she is absolutely MINT in every respect and in the near 1 year i have owned her i have already spent £5000 on her in keeping her mint service wise and pre-emptive maintenance wise so if your on a tight budget DONT BUY ONE.
    Mine cost £115000 new too as the chap specced her up. He had no trouble in the 6 years he owned her but his service bills were high.
    I now use a specialist Range Rover expert local to me and they are bloody brilliant and know these car well as they are both JLR master techs.
    Prices vary too according to spec and miles on the clock.
    You get what you pay for too.
    If you want to know more then PM me and we can chat on the phone.

    We all sell GOOD cars mate at some point. All my cars i have loved and owned and sold on have all bee MINTERS and nearly all of them are still with the chaps i sold them too many years ago. My Granada for example i sold 24 years ago and the chap still owns it and its still MINT.
