Re: Smart motorway speed cameras

I don't think lorries would assume they could drive faster than their normal speed limit TBH. Incidentally there is a stretch of the A55 road in North Wales that shows 70mph speed limit signs as opposed to the national speed limit signs. I believe it is the only road in Britain that does so. I may ...

Re: Smart motorway speed cameras

As I said earlier putting up 70 would be incorrect. HGVs, vans, caravans etc are not allowed to do 70 even on a motorway. The best you can do is put up the national limit sign, illuminated if you like. If you put up 70 then you would get muppets towing claiming that they were OK to do 70 as the sign...

Re: The best thing about your Jaguar XE

I liked the day we went to visit sister in law. Her husband took one look and said "flash git, nice car".

He drives a Porche 911 Carrera 4S!

Re: Roof bar failure

Just as a comparison the XF does not have lugs at all. I had, as mentioned before, the Thule bars and never had an issue. Looking at the mountings they tucked under the doors so that if it worked loose they should be held by the doors. I did make sure they were well tightened down though.

Re: Wanted - Chrome window surrounds

No idea for a source but I've seen them wrapped to good effect. Usually in black or carbon but no reason not to do it in chrome.

Re: Auto stop start

Re: Rear Camera

Drove home with it on all the way just for fun. It even stayed on as I drove into my drive which always triggers the front sensors. Can't see much need for this function though.

Occasionally it will not come on if the front sensors have triggered first, such as in a tight car park. Very rare though.
