Hi and welcome to the forum.

The V8s are nice to drive and do make a great sound.

Hope the 4x4 prob is not too involved but there is a lot of help is available on here. If you do a search on here it's probably been raised before.

Have a look at mycarly.  Uses a specific dongle to talk to Android or Apple devices (one size does not fit all) and reads the codes out.

You can also send error reports to Carly.
