If anyone out there from JLR is listening, I will gladly offer my elite IT skills to flip whatever images you have had digitally produced over to RHD versions on Photoshop. I am competitively priced at only £999,999 per model year.

Re: Jaguars always LH drive in pictues

Re: Disc and Pad Replacement

I think given the age of the car and the low mileage I’d be fighting for warranty job. I replaced my discs and pads with MTec and EBC and they are starting to show similar issues already. Speaking to the dealership today they are well aware of it and are blaming the pads that were originally fitted...

I am not sure the XE needs mudflaps & they look odd & spoil the aesthetics imho. :o

Re: Observation Skills

pem, I agree that some bikers only have themselves to blame but as you said, bikes are a lot harder to spot than big cars, hence why I said you really need your wits about you when riding one. Regarding your other point that in most cities bikers won't wait and insist on overtaking on both sides and...
