    What are some common faults to look out for . Probably be looking at a car with around 100,000 kms on the clock
    So how have you been going so far . Anything major go wrong.
    Currently have an L322 TD6
    Thanks for your help guys
    My 2015/16 SDV8 Autobiography has just ticked over 50k with zero issues 🤞 I fitted 20Ē rims off a sport about a year ago for towing & any dodgy roads.

    I'm also contemplating turning over my 2016 D4 in the next 6-12 months. Fortunately I've got the e-diff now and would love to have it in the next vehicle.

    TIA

    I don't know about the L405 (too lazy to look as well) but the RRS with SCV8 had the e-diff and I understand any vehicle with Dynamic mode has an e-diff (I could be wrong).

    My L494 SCV8 consumption is 18l/100 city, 14l/100 highway, 22l/100 towing my 2.9t ATM caravan. My city driving is often stop start peak hour Sydney.

    I had an engine issue with excessive noise from the drivers side head. This turned out to be a worn exhaust valve tip and lash cap causing excessive clearance. It was an expensive job to access and repair but the repair did include having both heads serviced, replacing all exhaust valves, replacing 5 injectors, replacing spark plugs, servicing the supercharger and replacing all plastic coolant lines and the water pump.

    Iíve got a SDV8 MY17 with 80000 on the odo and fault free; Iíve had a D3 D4 L322 (MY12 SDV8) and now L405. This has been the most reliable, with others all held to c120,000kms. Iíve modded it a bit: three inch exhausts (wouldnít do it again, dont get same benefit as L322 without dpf); uhf, Redarc, LLAMS, LT275\55\20 Ridge Grapplers on a second set of rims; dual battery system with Aplug and solar input etc

    Tows superbly.

    11/100km around town but thatís with a lot of tunnel and only a little stop start.

    Have seen 8/100 on highway with ease.

    Overall, great car, no regrets and no plan to upgrade anytime soon as the V8 is sublime!

    Cheers

    My L322's turbo oil feed o-rings were replaced at 82K then less than 2K later the cooler gaskets so were probably already leaking. Now with 150K I hope that my high temp sealant on the new gaskets will provide a longer gasket life.

    The original gasket part numbers have recently been superseded, hopefully due to being made from a better heat resistant material.
