    What is missing from under my bonnet?

    I bought this 2012 Disco 4 TDV6 2.7 litre in January this year.. The other day I noticed one area under the bonnet which seems like something is missing.. at first I thought may be this space was reserved for the 2nd turbo, as this 2.7 litre single turbo was phasing out in 2012, and they introduced the twin turbo 3.0 litre engines around that time.. (correct me if I am wrong).

    But then I got this image from google which claims to be of a 2011 TDV6 2.7 litre engine .. which clearly shows another part in that same spot where I feel I am missing something.. can anyone help me identify what's missing in my car (if any).

    You pic looks normal - I am thinking that the right pic is a UK car with a Fuel Burning Heater fitted - I think it goes there.

    Pretty sure Garry is right.

    Quite a few dual battery kits make use of that space.... so yours is certainly not unusual.

    As Garry says, itís the FBH to keep the engine cosy and warm on those cold winter nights. We donít need them in balmy Australia

    But those of us that have them think they're great when they work. They are a bit of a maintenance headache though.
