Re: First impressions

There has been no mention on new car purchasing of dealer contributions and low APR lending rates on PCP finance. I bought mine with a Privilege Car buying scheme as a contractor employee of JLR , of which the discount was cancelled out by the options I needed . Looking recently, the same savings se...

Re: "Allow apps....Tick....."In control apps not available.....etc...etc

Situation solved , whilst staring at my iPhone last week in a bored moment , I noticed the button ‘Jaguar apps’ , and pressed it . It went shaded , I think added small lettering underneath “refreshing” , which showed up as the filling clock face . Taking this as a cue , I retried the system and hey ...

Re: Driving an XE in UK snow / ice

The ice academy trip is better value and more beneficial than rival big manufacturers. 1) It uses the ex Ford motor car ice proving ground that Jaguar bought off them, many times bigger and longer designed than the rest 2) Range of new Jaguars 3) Top notch food and accommodation, e.g. tasty moose bu...

Re: Winter Tyres - Pirelli Sottozero 3

JLR test fleet use entirely Sottozeros in northern Sweden, without studs. I drove the whole range there, including F Pace. The biggest surprise is how agile the XJ is when I was told to ‘flick’ it side to side through a slalom .

Re: How to tell Meridian 825W and 380W systems apart

As PaulC says , (not available on the standard Meridian) , on the dashboard display you can select : Dolby Stereo/Meridian/ dts . I would say Meridian is the default setting, Dolby stereo sounds tinny, and dts is a system used for live music , as in the O2 Arena .

Re: Meridian 380W versus 125W Standard

On first release , the Land Rover all new Discovery was available without even digital radio on the base model ! It is a standard industry wide ploy to do things like this....I have the Meridian system, listening in the car to it at home (I know, I’m sad!), it picks up very deep distortion free base...

Re: Touchup Paint

Auto wax works , at Bicester Heritage site , repaired a very nasty gouged stone chip near the front of my car with a Chipex kit that they nominated I buy first. I’d challenge anyone to find the repair now . If you apply the clear lacquer in the normal kits, the result is the colour coat ends up a di...

Re: New member of the family!

Some deleted colours are special order still,if you ask. (You’d have to pay though, SVO operations I think, to make the order....)
