Re: Cost of Discs and Pads

Worth considering when you change discs and pads. If you go for Jaguar discs, unless they are now using another supplier. they will almost certainly suffer from corrosion as lots of owners including me have found. Brembo seem to have a good name so I am hoping they last a lot longer than the origina...

Depending how old it is, you might get a friendly dealer to change them under warranty.
Personally I don't feel that happy with my dealer so didn't...
He said it’s 3 years old and has done 30,000 so good luck getting that done under warranty 🤣🤣🤣

Re: Cost of Discs and Pads

Your choice of course, but if you use a Jaguar dealership, you are probably looking at round £800 to £1000 for discs and pads all round. If the car is 3 years old and has done 30,000 why not use a garage you know to do the job? Nothing special about replacing discs and pads that the car needs to go ...

Re: For sale quality wheel spacers, wheel caps (T2R5513) and 2018 Navigation SD Card (T2H36808)

Hey! Yeah Phil that is my post on F-Pace forum but the card did not get any interest there and has sat in my drawer since then. This card did not come with the car and was bought separately from the dealer for 350 euros. According to the dealer it was supposed to be plug & play but since my car was...

Re: Xe ownership

There are only 3 things that I can grumble about on the car. Firstly, the rear view camera will sometimes not come on in reverse. It only happens after driving a while and maybe there's a software update for it. Secondly, the Star alloys are so susceptible to stonechip damage and then the inevitabl...

Re: Brake Pads Low

Hi, when I had my car in to my local trusted mechanic to swap the winter tyres on I asked him to check pads and discs for me. He’s advised to change the rear pads as they’re about their limit, all other discs and pads are fine and he reckoned the sensor would activate shortly but that’s been around...
