Re: 17inc wheels and xes brakes

:cry: Don’t commit your money to buying anything yet. I read somewhere from two sources, that the XE-S would not take 17” rims (not even Jaguar’s own brand), and that you would not be able to even fit them on the axle. I was warned repeatedly against trying 17” rims on my 25T, even though the 25T is...

Who has driven a "Velar"?

This dealership I use for my annual servicing is, a bit unique. Everytime you pass by the place, a fleet of the largest most expensive SUVs are parked and waiting at the service gate. Is these the queue of car owners waiting for repairs? Is the entire township in love with owning 4X4s, and sedan-own...

Re: Driving an XE in UK snow / ice

Hmm. Never changed tyres over on a car, how easy is it to do yourself or would you just get the garage to swap them? LORD, no! If I gather correctly mash101, you are recently licensed, never really had many hours relying on an RWD car in any sort of snow/ice, you have a substantial slope condition ...

Re: Dealerships washing cars

Wash my CA--- What, are THEY INSANE?! I own a BRG model from 2017. Do you know what BRG means? It means I have the nearly LAST Jaguar XE in British Racing Green (no, actually I do have the absolute ONLY LAST, since PhilB traded his in---dammit all, PhilB!!), in my timezone. British Racing Green attr...

Re: Eco mode

:lol: Ahhh, the advantages of owning a barely-subdued Tier-3 in Petrol, instead of an impossible to discipline “S”. Take the word of a prude: Eco is a fine way to budget your expenditure of fuel and energy if you are a casual operator of the throttle on moderately long errands. The trouble is that e...

Re: USB music playback problem

:| This was one of the earliest issues I remember reading on these Jaguar forums… didn’t matter if you had an XF, F-Type, whatever. From what I was able to read from all those threads, the head unit (combination of music signal processor and a computer processor) has a glitch. Not all units that com...

Re: One too NEW tyre...

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: Whaaa! Sob and sob :( . …and Whaaaa :cry: :cry: some more. I suspected all along that the advice would be to amend the single-tyre. I was just foolishly hoping against hope that I wouldn’t have to spend money changing out tyres so far ahead of my plans. You’ve given me a clea...

Re: Sunglasses holder

Here in the US dealerships, it shows up in these two part numbers below. Yes, for the XE compartment, and it lists as sunglasses holder--overhead console,… but no mention of XE year or tier. Both numbers are described as Oyster color, but the second retails ONE US DOLLAR cheaper than the first. So y...

One too NEW tyre...

I took an injury to one of the tyres, and the specialist (a bunch of people I respect) replaced the ONE tyre for me under warranty. Identical Continental ProContact that comes with the car from factory. That’s great, but it’s also not “great”. This new tyre is mounted on the front of my RWD XE. The ...
