    50ppm is recommended, euro 6 compliant and does have DPF.

    Then clearly you only allowed the D240 to approach you. You know u perhaps wanted to look at it, not to race it

    umm... The 200 has no dpf. I think it's euro3 or euro 2 despite Toyota's 50ppm or better recommendations.

    oh yess. I hope Toyota can keep the FJ on and on.

    First trip coming up next week. Hopefully a week of diving at Protea Banks, then Transkei for a week. The Transkei trip will give me opportunity to test capability Iím sure. Have done the LR experience so I know there wonít be problems.

    Another thing I like are the rubber bases in door pockets, cubby and the general storage space. Quite a bit of attention to detail.

    My car stood outside last night so this morning I started it from the app to prewarm set aircon to 24c, got in to a nice warm car.

    Thumbs up Re: LR heaven

    Congratulations Bruce...I am so jealous. This weekend I saw one in the same color at the Dunkeld center. In the sun the paint work almost seemed alive. I took the long way back to my car to have a closer look...absolutely stunning.

    How did you know it was actually 50ppm? Be careful what pump attendants in some countries will tell you.

    Prices just gone up by 7%!!! Lucky me. LR have made air suspension optional now plus a few other items. Very poor considering Rand is stronger. Must be milking the shortage of available stock. My brother ordered last week and just got the news.

    Well done Bruce. I'm drooling...

    Zim is universally 50ppm at the commercial stations. Some bulk transport operators may bring in 500ppm for their own use.

    Congratulations. I wish you many trouble free enjoyable miles with the vehicle. I truly hope that they live up to the perceived robustness of their forebears and nibble away at the stain of poor reliability that their cousins have had.

    After 16 years with a 'boring' Series 90 Prado (95KW!) which never failed in 320,000km, I bought my first D4, followed by another. I bought the second after believing the first was just a lemon. Jointly, they covered less than 200,000km with no fewer than six on road failures between them. I could not venture out with that kind of poor reliability so bought a Land Cruiser again. Back up to 100,000km and no failures. Got a boring Prado 150 on order again-just got to find one-they are like hens teeth due to the chip supply problem.

    Just returned from a 4000 km round trip with my D240s pulling an Imagine Comfortvan. What an awesome vehicle. Comfortable ride. Very solid on the road with NO body roll. Pulls like a train.

    Modern landrovers have moodswings. I guess it helps before one buys it to know beforehand that something can happen anytime. Once expectations are set and managed, there your have sorted yourself mentally. I've been extremely lucky with my 2012 JDM D4V8 bought at about 100,000km, now approx 200,000kms with NOT a single issue other than wear and tear items. However, im mentally prepared for the worst, anytime, anywhere. It helps

    I could not venture out with that kind of poor reliability so bought a Land Cruiser again. Back up to 100,000km and no failures. Got a boring Prado 150 on order again-just got to find one-they are like hens teeth due to the chip supply problem.
    We also have a 6-speed manual Prado 150tx d4d. 150,000kms since new, I admit it's never left us stuck on the road. But some annoyances like clutch has been replaced twice (60,000km and 140,000km), and dealer had to "reseal the turbo" recently whatever that means, plus hissing under the car that the dealer has always "failed to replicate". Oh and the annoying jiggly squeaky tailgate. But it feels like it will do another 150,000 sans major issues. But incidentally so does the D4, only that the horror stories from other owners are always lingering...

    Im busy on a roadtrip from Jhb, South Coast, Coffee bay, Kob Inn and Morgan Bay. This vehicle handles it all. It really is a beast and although i'm taking strain with how dirty it is after rain,mud,300km's of dirt road, potholes,animals etc. I have no complaints. Average fuel consumotion sitting on 9.3l/100km. On 2700km's now.
