Re: Disklok

I have one that I use on my MGB when stored......have just tried it on the XE and it does fit but I personally would be a bit wary of it catching on the gizmos on the wheel. The MGB has none of these. Checking the disklok site it seems to be the small one by its measurements. There is a phone number...

Re: Loan car

Slightly off piste but referring to hire cars. Whilst my pre facelift XE rested at the airport and we had 3 weeks away I hired a BMW 420 i Gran Coupe ( as 1411derek refers to) for 2 weeks and a Merc CLA for 1 week as they wanted the BMW back. In the near 3000 miles I did,my main impression was how m...

Re: XE Prestige

The Prestige model is far from the base model counter to earlier post ( that was the SE) it has a lot of very worthy features as a secondhand purchase. When I bought my new 200 Prestige in early 2018 it was very much the best "value" model offered in price charged for what you get form. Would I go f...

Re: Warning of BT scam

As others have reported it is a regular experience for me too. They are certainly tenacious as after being hung up on after the first call, the missed call list for the following hours is often a long one.....often as said earlier seemingly from obscure Scottish numbers. Have tried reporting them to...

Re: Another Stratstone Closed

If it is anything like my recent experience with Stoke Stratstone,the dealership was sold to Rybrook who then very quickly closed the Jaguar part and converted the whole site to Land Rover. As someone who specifically chose the local dealer Carwow deal for convenience rather than much better deals f...

Re: Thoughts 4 weeks in on 250ps

Spritely,If you are considering a new purchase I think that you will find that Jaguar have dropped the 200. Shame as (having one) it is powerful enough for my needs... but no doubt being the cheaper entry model their was not enough revenue generated for the beancounters.

Re: XE or XF

I have a MY18 petrol Prestige XE.....you are correct that the xenon's make a big difference,I got them as a freebie and am very pleased with their performance. XE vs XF......when we go out as a 4 with our XF mates they always come to pick us up ( lucky) as they are not impressed with sitting in the ...

Re: Boot Space

I specced mine with 40/20/40 as per 'must have'recommendations like folding mirrors,spare,camera etc but find the fixings so fragile and even with the seats down the boot not overly spacious. Certainly haven't bothered carrying anything in it for many months...thanks to my ever reliable and very use...

Re: Good Bye to the XE

Good idea about those moving on to other models/ marques from owning an XE to continue to post and maybe give advice for comparison and information. One forum member known to me from a JAG get together changed to a Mercedes CLA at the registration change but even last week was posting about the XE o...

Re: XE 200hp or 250hp

I have a MY 18 200ps and find it fine for performance. At the Jag get togethers I have driven a couple of 250's and noticed little,if any,difference in performance. Would I pay more for the 250 ? No. It would depend on the deal for me which to go for.....
