Hi all....

Ne member here. Though I would join up as just put deposit down on an Alphard to be converted into camper. 

 

It's a 2006 2.4 petrol AS (unsure if this is right?)

 

It's currently on water so not seen it yet but wondering if people might know the main features of these vans? Ie. Comfort and entertainment features? Electric this and that etc?

 

Looked online and can't find s lot relating to this kind of stuff.

 

Thanks

Is the vehicle 2004 or 2006, as that will make a difference.

Certainly will affect the gearbox fitted.

 

Your model number should be on the auction sheet.

Or on the door frame (when it arrives).

 

You seller/agent should be able to supply the model number and serial (Vin) number.

Thanks, it's 2006, on its way from Japan at the moment.

Hi thanks for this! Do they have parking sensors? Cameras? I'm reading they do but only certain models.

I think most have parking sensors, or sonar as the Japanese know it.

 

Some have front cameras, some don't. I believe most have a rear camera.

It all depends on the options and head unit you will have.

 

If you have photo of the front grill, and the unit below the screen you will be able to tell.

With the HDD unit, you will have all the options, although some won't work in the UK.

 

Happy Motoring

Hello again,

 

I don't see the camera unit on the front grill, but that doesn't necessarily mean you haven't got one.

It could be in the grille.

I doubt you have the three cameras as they protrude so as to be able to monitor sideways.

 

I don't recognise your headunit.

It does not appear to the top of the line HDD system.

However, it does have the button for the sonar.

As the console below the headunit is standard it does not confirm sonar, or not.

 

When you get the vehicle, if it has sonar it will have the sensors at the four corners, and pressing the sonar button will activate (four green leds) / deactivate it.

 

It WILL be comfortable. You'll be very pleased.

Your 2006 should (will) have a five speed auto gearbox. 2004 is four speed.

 

As I said, I don't recognise your head unit, but most do not work 'correctly', in the UK.

CD should be OK, DVD too, radio not so. Sat Nav NO.

You will either enjoy learning Japanese or be frustrated by it !

 

While you wait, read about fuel and the head unit (and replacement) on this Forum.

 

Also I strongly advise you purchase JPNZ Alphard Manual FRO396. £25 ish, and worth every penny.

Be prepared, buy it now.
