Re: XE end of life in 2023, autocar article.

Fact : Adblue takes a huge quantity of CO2 out of the world’s atmosphere to manufacture, is supplied for oil tanker power units as well, so car supply is quite a sideline. The average distance of a British car journey is 6 miles .....6 miles of cold Diesel engine running, and we’re back to square 1 ...

Re: History of Jaguar XE Petrol Engines.

The new ingenium petrol engine has ‘continuous variable valve timing’ . This is new technology that enables various degrees of lift of the valves dependent on engine warm up and user load. Not to be confused with variable camshaft profiling,which is on everything already in addition. Obviously it ra...

Re: This is not my week. A warning regarding RAINEX !!

Any rain 'repellant' in my book does a sterling job in absorbing every atom of road grease onto the windscreen...Kerboom ! It actually works incredibly well if you don't meet a single item of traffic on your journey. Outer Scotland anybody ?

Re: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Thanks for the clarification Peter. When you say only models from 2017, I assume that you are referring to the model year. Is that correct? Mine is a 2016 build but model year 2017 with the ICT Pro. Precisely that I assume, all 2017 year cars, as it’s the 10.2 inch screen In Control Touch Pro part ...

Re: We're not alone!!

I’ve noticed a mis-aligned driver’s door with resultant paint chipped off the door closure, un-greased (bone dry) bonnet latches ,one of which was stuck, and third and finally, window surrounds front and rear on the passenger side out of alignment by a country mile. The contract dealers have with th...

Re: We're not alone!!

Don't forget Range Rover, heard a classic yesterday. Brand new 100k + Range Rover Hybrid broke down on pickup by the customer on its way to the customers home, a recovery truck took the car back to the dealers. Two days later same car broke down on the supposed fix test run by the dealer, imagine t...

Re: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

I am a partner employee of JLR. I didn't 'find out' . It is my job as far as I'm aware, to know thus - only models from 2017 onwards with 10.2 inch centre screen and In control Touch Pro qualify for the 'Smartphone pack' upgrade , as it's called. It's best to be patient with Jaguar retailer's servi...

Re: Dan's XE 25t R-Sport

Discovery Sports are JLR's best seller. Range Rover Evoque was/is a runaway seller, and as sales have accelerated year on year, so the foul mouthed doom sayers have been getting in their stride, just shifting over models perhaps ! Build issues do creep in at times, but this seems to be motor industr...
