    I've got a collection of MOST fiber bits & pieces in Sydney, but honestly I buy it all from China (AliExpress) because I never found anyone local who stocks that sort of thing... and if I did, it would still be cheaper from China anyhow. Happy to help you out with something from what i've got here...

    ...So where to start? I'd suggest DAB+, Surround Sound and TPMS, as I said they've been done before and there is no surprises in making it all work.


    Thanks Cambo351,
    seems like solid advice. Could you point me in the direction of parts lists for the Surround Sound, DAB+ and TPMS (or can you source parts and sell me these, together with the wiring looms you photographed?)

    Cheers,

    Got your PM mate, will reply shortly.

    The wiring harness' for the Surround Sound and DAB antenna I make up myself.

    I have everything here for a DAB+ installation in a 2016 D4, i've also got a spare Surround amplifier in my collection of parts as well.

    If anyone wants to do the DAB+ retrofit, I made up a batch of antenna cables today.

    These are the ones that are no longer available to buy from Land Rover, with the special double Fakra connector on them.

    Do you think I could add DAB+ to a MY08 L322?

    I think it's going to be possible. Although i've not done it on that particular model yet.

    There was a Sirius / SDARS / Satellite Radio option for the North American L322's from 2005MY onward and that module is the same one used in the Disco 3 and Disco 4, also the Freelander 2. So that looks like the same scenario as when I did the DAB+ retrofit on my 2008 FL2, it was not available from the factory at that time, but still worked.

    What i'm not sure about is the antenna arrangement, are there any unused window antennas on the side rear windows? Like can you see an unused press stud on the glass?

    There is a mounting bracket available for the SDARS or DAB module in the L322 up to 2009, Land Rover p/n IPU500172, they are like 10 or so.

    I think I already have bracket 10. It holds the HK and TV unit.

    The bracket is item 8 in that drawing.

    Well that Ezi DAB is an FM modulator, so you're going from Digital, to Analogue, then back to Digital again. Plus you have to mount the device somewhere on the dash.

    The whole point of a retrofit with factory components is that it's integrated into the cars infotainment system; completely controlled though the existing touchscreen, steering wheel controls, etc.
