Re: Anyone having withdrawals from driving their Jag?

It's not been a -complete- disaster, though, the local Sainsburys is just about far enough to get the temperature gauge to the middle of the display when I get home, and I've been getting about a third better MPG, because there is hardly any traffic! Really pleased to hear about your better MPG. Un...

Re: To charge or not to charge? That is the question

I did a top up charge yesterday and it took 2 hours. The car has only had 4 journeys in the last two weeks about 20 miles inc using wipers and heated steering wheel. Different approach to the problem of not using the car for me. It's not turned a wheel for 2 weeks so started it today and ran it at ...

Re: What pack for Power Fold Mirrors?

I think if you can't see it listed on Topix, then it isn't fitted. I originally thought mine had powerfold as all the buttons seemed to be as described but nowt happened when pressed and the mirrors certainly didn't fold automatically. No mention at all about mirrrors on my Topix even under LESS THI...

Re: Rear Mud Flaps

I had a similar issue with mine. You just need to replace the clips, the mud flaps themselves look fine. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JAGUAR-WHEEL-ARCH-LINING-SILL-MOULDING-CLIPS-6-5mm-Hole-C2S9354020-PLASTIC-X10/173057932705 Many thanks. Great find!! Just ordered a pack. I have a mudflap in the boot...

Re: To charge or not to charge? That is the question

I don't pretend to know the ins and outs of battery technology, but it seems to me that the need to fit AGM batteries on cars as opposed to the old and well tested lead acid battery which you used to have to top up, followed by the sealed lead acid version, came about purely due to the addition of s...

To charge or not to charge? That is the question

There are often posts on the forum about batteries, battery charging, chargers, leads, plugs etc etc and it got me wondering why do people frequently use external chargers? Is it because the car is struggling to start or maybe because the dreaded s/s doesn't kick in or perhaps because it is an AGM b...
