    ABS light

    Hi folks, The ABS light on my 105 series has recently come on and will not switch off. Does anyone know if the 105 has a diagnostics port to help me investigate the issue? Cheers

    Grand tour s3

    Sorry for the bump folks, but I just got round to watching this episode last night and was a bit concerned by the fact that they managed to lose 6 Landcruisers, with Jeremy Clarkson saying that "they all broke down in some way". Certainly doesn't bode well for modern Landcruisers. Anyone know...

    A deranged obsession

    If those are the guys I'm thinking of, I gave them a call a few months back regarding their too good to be true collection of low mileage 105s. Sadly the cars have no papers and can only be bought for parts.

    It's got 150,000 miles on the clock, which isn't too bad for a 2006 and yes, LHD was the key reason to getting it from the middle east as opposed to Australia. I really wanted a 105, which I could drive almost anywhere and not have to worry about being banned from certain countries. I would...

    A deranged obsession

    I bought the truck for £5800, but it cost about £8000 in total including import and shipping.

    A deranged obsession

    I have always wanted to get out and see the world, but my interest in overlanding using my own vehicle was really sparked by joining my brother for the last leg of his road-trip from Wales to Kyrgyzstan back in summer 2017. Granted I only joined for 2 weeks, I have never felt so free as we...
