Re: Auto start/stop not working - Jag XE R Sport Auto

I hate stop/start systems amd must be very unlucky with mine as it works everytime I forget to turn it off and I only do a lot of short journeys of 5 miles or less, and it also has the smaller 80Ahr battery! ;) +1 Mine will be 4 years old in July. 80 A/H battery, never been near one of those Ctek t...

Re: InControl Remote App - Service indicator

Aha another one! I had mine serviced in July 17 and the service required alert on the app remained on. I just ignored it and assumed eventually it would disappear but it didn't. In June 18, I asked the local dealer (Stratsone in Cardiff ) about it when mine went it for other warranty work and they s...

Re: Service date

It's a no brainer. Get it serviced just before the 2 years is up which is all that's required to maintain the warranty. Why on earth get it done before its's due? The service interval is 2 years or 21000 miles but as I do mainly short journeys, I like to change my engine oil and filter every year.

Re: Disc and Pad Replacement

And also the same for topping up the fluids. Can only think of that scenario for the huge bill. Just something to keep in mind for next time you need adblu. Topping up the tank is as simple as putting in diesel. Lots of how to do it info in various posts on here. Absolutely no need to pay a garage ...

Re: Disc and Pad Replacement

The aircon service charge is not on. Is the service garage an official Jaguar approved? Yes, it's definitely an approved dealership. Almost bought a car from them before I found my current car, as they're local. Had to take it there for the service to be legit to enable me to keep my warranty going...

Re: Ad-blue

the warning message appeared this morning ,so I bought ad-blue from the petrol station , is it just a case of pouring it into the tank in the boot??? It is yes, but make sure you cover the area around the filler as any spillage will leave white marks on carpet etc. Best to buy it in 5 litre contain...

Re: Fitting/setting dipping side mirrors

Quick addition to this post. I had the unfortunate experience the other night, raining hard driving on a narrow country road, to kiss side mirrors with someone coming the other way. Of course he was over too far!! There was a bang as we touched, the mirror housing wasn't pushed back but the glass fe...

Keyless Entry

Just watched the Tonight programme on ITV which was all about the rapidly rising theft rate of expensive cars with keyless entry by thieves using relay kit bought online for less than £100. This has been covered before in the forum and the use of the Faraday pouch was mentioned as one method of prev...

Re: Sods law

Oh dear!! Unfortunate, but there can't be many drivers who don't kerb their alloys at some time. I congratulate you Vespa if you've only done it once in 17 years. I must confess I have done it quite a few times over the years but then I was doing over 30,000 miles a year before I retired. I have bas...
