    Hi Chaps and Chap'ests, Yeah, I know, I can hear it now 'You Idiot' I've gone and bought a 2002 L322 TD6 with 160K on it, trouble is, for the price (£3K) I couldn't resist, I know, I know, ok, go gently. It had a gear box rebuild at 143K with 20K warranty which is why I guess previous owner chop'd it in. Year MOT, last service 2k ago and body work is really good, just a tiny dent in rear o/s passenger door.

    Engine and gear box run sweet, I've spent around a month trying to clue myself up on what to look for in terms of faults. I think guy I bought it from was a bit annoyed as I used up the £20 fuel he stuck in it as I used every bit of fuel vapour up when I took it out for a test drive and then continued to look around for another hour before purchasing.

    Only fault, which he is fixing before I pick up tomorrow, is drivers side windows control panel is dead and slight pixilation on the odo / fault display.

    Anyone know of a Android Head unit that will fit in to this? any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Well I'm sure you'll see me about on here, she must have some faults up her sleeve raring to come out when unexpected. It was a toss up between this and a LWB Pajero, nothing feels like or drives like a RR, its worth the pain, so they tell me

    Welcome, great looking motor and good luck. I will live my L322 envy through your ownership, hopefully issue free.

    Thanks for all the welcomes folks. Picked her up today, had window pack on drivers door fixed but they must of messed something up as keyfobs didn't work when I got home, quick search of the forum and found the 'reset procedure' and now all good! Blimey! Less than 24hrs and this site got me out of the crap already. Drive wise, a 40 mile blast from Bristol to Swindon and it was a dream to drive, used less fuel than my '18 plate 2.4D Nissan Navara. Just a few niggles to address, rear window wiper (Sounds like a known issue) 12V outlets not working, hopefully just a fuse.

    Great smooth ride back, gears select up and down really smoothly, engine purred along really well. Can someone confirm if the turbo whistle is quite pronounced in their TD6? Whistles but doesn't whine.

    Welcome aboard.

    As said best asking questions in the RR section where the elite masochists hang out :D
