Re: Road Rash on the skirt area just in front of the rear wheels

Thanks Phil Meguiars it is, and some daubing with my touch-up stick after the compound. ant have you thought of applying some clear wrap and see what it looks like? I’ve just done mine on my new car. I just bought some good quality clear wrap on eBay £7 incl delivery and easily enough to do both si...

Re: Special Tool Requirement to Change Pads and Discs

I had Brembo rear discs and pads fitted on my previous XE. Discs showed no signs of corrosion after 12 months unlike the original Jaguar ones which I understand are made by ATE. The pads were fine but did produce a slight amount of dust unlike the Jaguar original ceramic pads which shed no dust at all

Re: Vibration and Rumbling

It does rather make you wonder about the standard of mechanic (Sorry, Technician) being employed by your dealer if they can’t work that one out without you telling them what it was😳😳

Re: Approved Used Warranty - Anyone with good experiences?

The garage probably didn’t fancy doing the job so they fobbed you off and not knowing the history of this problem, you accepted what they told you. Tell them to think again and if you don’t get satisfaction contact crc on here. It’s a very well known fault, definitely covered by the Jaguar warranty ...

Re: Map updates - any options?

I've just bought an approved 2018 30T with only 4500 miles on and I am over the moon with it. However the Touch Pro Duo is so very different from my 2015 car that is does take an awful lot of brain scratching to work out what does what. Certain to be an age thing and I'm sure one of todays 10 year o...

Re: Callipers

Ah the old question. To paint them or not to paint them and if you paint them, what colour should they be? If it floats your boat, paint them. Personally I think it looks a bit naff but then it would be a dull old world if we all liked the same thing. Easy enough to do so if you like the look of it ...

Re: 2018 Jaguar XE 25t Rear Brakes

Thanks Bob. I think I will go the same route next time I need pads. The Brembo ones don's shed an awful lot of dust but it's noticeably more than the original Jaguar ones.

Re: Am I being ripped off for software update?

That is ridiculous. If the battery or any associated software is faulty during the guarantee period it should be sorted at no charge. Don’t let them get away with that.

Re: 2018 Jaguar XE 25t Rear Brakes

I had Brembo discs and genuine Jag pads and sensors. I had an independent garage do the work for me and the cost for everything was £360. Bob Where did you get the pads from Bob, Jaguar dealer or online? My Brembo discs are not showing any signs of corrosion so I would certainly buy again but next ...
