Re: Roof Bars Fitting Guide

I have used the roof bars a few times now and can confirm no marking of the body work, although I always clean the area prior to fitting. I also had reservations over the fitting method, certainly the front bars as they do not have the locating pin. Although cautious, I have never had any problems ...

Re: All XEs invited to Jaguar Breakfast at Gaydon

Had a good day yesterday. Only saw a few other XE's. A black S, two in Bluefire and an IRR. Not a single F-Pace there though................. :?: Good turn out from the rest of the Jag fraternity especially the XK convertibles. The Jaguar collection and the "reserve" collection in the separate buil...

I told him I didn't like the idea of people pointing at a DYV so he changed it to BK09YLK. Within an hour of picking up the car a kind old soul reversed his Mitsubishi Shogun into it ..... I...
