Re: DIRT INGRESS @ REAR DOORS AROUND ARCHES

Not wishing to be contrarian, but I've had my XE for six weeks now and while dirt / water does get into the areas mentioned it isn't what you'd call catastrophic (and I'm fussy). I'm assuming Jaguar designed if like this (as opposed to a post production "d'ohhhh" moment). I mean, it is fundamental ...

Just don't mention what type of tyres you have.
The cross-climate and winter tyre lot will be out from their summer hibernation soon.

Re: Sods law

I took the Alloy wheel protection offered, £300 for 3 years cover and 18 repairs allowed. Given the cost to repair one alloy and the state of British roads, it's a good policy, touch wood not used yet, but on my previous X Type I did an alloy with only 2 weeks to go before trading in and that cost m...

Re: JLR Solihull end of October 2 week shutdown.

As mine was an ex-Jag car i wonder if that is affecting their used sales as a lot of them seem to be well specified and in the upper bracket. Most late reg Jaguar used cars are Ex Jag cars. Many of these Ex Jag cars, are Jaguar staff cars,who have specified the car to high standard. As they only dr...

Re: Fuel Stations

Our local BP has now rebranded as Esso and it got me thinking about fuel stations. It used to be that a lot of our bigger villages had them, but slowly these have all been closing. The ones near us are Esso, Texaco and Shell. I’m not sure where the nearest BP is any more. It may well be that eventu...
