Re: What should I go for.

Back to the OPs question, I’d recommend you buy an approved car from a Jag dealer. Other warranties are a gamble and, whilst they are fantastic cars, they do not have Japanese levels of reliability. The boot is small, so if carrying capacity is a consideration, I’d look for the optional folding rear...

Re: What should I go for.

The fact that it's diesel therefore not so refined and getting that on your hands at the filling station is a big no for me :D Totally agree. I always used to use the supplied gloves but still managed to get it on me during 50% of the refuels. Awful smelling stuff. Even more annoying now when you d...

Re: First 1000 miles review

Thanks for sharing. Good to hear you’re enjoying it. Like you I came from a BMW and was blown away by the Jags handling and ride. Still am. Once you’re P250 is run in you’ll get much better fuel economy so don’t worry too much at this stage. Mine is coming up to 2 years old and my stop/start has nev...

Re: Blown Turbo? Out of Warranty?

Failures on PCH cars when they are out of warranty are a ‘grey’ area. The lease company own the car and the customer is effectively hiring it. In my view the lease company should pick up the repair bill when it’s outside warranty (as long as you’ve maintained it correctly etc). I wouldn’t repair an ...

Re: Road Tests and Privacy !

I think the risk here is that your car gets cloned. I’m not sure how big a risk it actually is, but I would put a personalised registration on it, and that would mean you don’t need to worry. I’d probably be more concerned that I had a car that had been thrashed in its early life and I think this sh...

Ian Callum leaves Jaguar

Must admit that I think this is a blow for Jaguar. I think Ian Callum's design work has been excellent, so he will be a real loss. Will be interesting to see where he goes. Autocar recently reported that the PGA Group may have been talking to Tata about the purchase of Jaguar, although apparently th...

Re: Paintwork, promises and warranty

That marring is terrible, so I'm glad you've got a solution. In my experience, dealers have very little experience when it comes to proper paint correction so choosing the right detailer is important. Who will decide if its a Stage 1 or Stage 2 correction (this basically means they'll use 2 differen...

Re: Is the end nigh for Tesla?

Exactly and it's a crying shame these people are left unchecked and a law unto themselves. Don't get me started on the cult of 'Leadership'. Many 'Leaders' don't know the basics about their business, even if they can paint a glossy vision of the future. It should be no surprise to anyone that they ...

Re: Is the end nigh for Tesla?

But what about Tesla residuals and the human impact on Tesla's workers?

I do agree though that the big car firms will have plans in place for a possible bid for when the time comes.

Is the end nigh for Tesla?

The figures are not looking good at all for Tesla, and with another USD 550m due to be repaid in November, the question is will they be around in their current form in 2020? There's an entertaining, irreverent and insightful summary in the link below from John Cadogan, an Australian motoring journo....
