    I know at least 2 in France.
    I always wonder why a limited edition doesn't have any of the gadgets but there may be a good reason. Those are not poverty spec P38, they have leather seats but not electric seats, nor heated
    Great, well seems against all logic to me, and every brochure or online bit of info I can find.

    Still, you seem to know more about this magic french model(s) than me.

    So Crack on.

    Wow, what kind of a retard would by an new car with a spec worse than the one it replaces? Surely the dealer was giving them away. Sorry I don't think I can be of any help with that it is uniquely French.

    Well they only seem to have done it for the French market which is odd. I could almost understand them doing a special for expeditions but why then sell it as a 25th and not an expedition or something like G4 etc. I have never heard of the SRS being unreliable so I wonder why the left it off?

    It would be interesting to find out if any other countries got anything unique like this.

    Odd for sure it is.
    SRS may be unreliable, the cables under the driver seats goes bad and you got an error. French MOT check SRS warning lamp and they've spoken about force people to change SRS every 10 years.
    I'm thinking about maybe a third one that is the property of a French OffRoad Instructor at Val d'Isre (Alps).

    They check airbags for UK MOT too but removal of the light bulb fixes that lol. I know they should be changed after 10 years or so but I have not heard of a car failing as a result of not being done. Would be a nightmare here if they changed that!

    Might be worth you putting a spec list together and seeing if you can get some info up on the main board.

    Flo, did you ever get to test a ScanGuage II on a P38? I'm thinking of buying one.

    I note ScanGauge Australia show it is compatible with the P38.

    This is not helpful: BUT from the previous posts the apparent absence of expected functions certainly puts a different spin on the term "Limited"

    Hi Allan, that's why I'd like to see if anyone has tried it. I haven't found anyone on AULRO who has. I'll have to see who has one and go and visit them.

    Ron, no we didn't try it. But i did buy a OBD Wifi box to work with Palmer Software on Ipad/Iphone : Dash Command. (55 euros from china on ebay.com+ software )

    If that works on a V8 P38, i guess everything OBD2 compliant should work.

    Hi Ron

    I run one in my HSE, it works pretty well.

    The fuel functions are out by a huge amount (I think it might be a factor of 100) but the code reset and monitoring functions all work great.

    I use mine mostly to monitor voltage and coolant temperature

    Thanks Greg.

    Well, I bought the ScanGauge II and it certainly works with the P38A.

    I have yet to try all features out (I haven't read the manual yet) and will report back after I have done so and tested it further.
