Re: Loud BANG! ! ! & Instant PANIC ! ! !

I'm concerned by Jaguar Assist's lack of interest. How did your conversation with them go?

Re: Jaguar XE Roof Bars

I'm interested at £120. And not too far from you, so no problem collecting them.

Re: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

I have had an ongoing debate about the same issue with where I bought my car from new in March 2016. The upshot is that I would have to pay £360 for the software upgrade and CarPlay. When I mentioned some owners have had the upgrade for free the dealer didn’t believe me and said all JLR Farnell dea...

Re: 500MB Data usage in 2 weeks?

It's even odder in that when I log on to the Ubigi account online it tells me I still have over 200Mb remaining. But the car warns I've used over 90% of the allowance. I get the same warning every few months, And eventually it tells me I've exceeded my allowance. I have programmed the car to give i...

Re: Auto button

You were dreaming.
The temperature buttons set whatever temperature you want, the auto button keeps the car at your selected temperature(s).

Re: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

My dealer tells me that the infotainment upgrade to include Appl Car Play can now be installed on my year old XE at a cost of £360. I'd never heard of Apple Car Play (nor of Android Auto) until this thread started.is it worth having? What will it give me that I've not already got? If I put the Radio...

Re: How is your RWD XE in winter? Do you use winter tyres?

This has been my first winter without winter tyres for more than 20 years. Thankfully there wasn't any snow, but on cold roads I could feel that the tyres didn't have the degree of grip that I'd like. I don't do the journeys that necessitated a spare set of wheels shod with winter tyres since I reti...

Re: Must Have Options?

Interesting that most people are saying split rear seats are a must have. I have had them on my current XE for 3 years and used them once! Decided not to bother on new car and spend the money elsewhere. I must be the odd one out :lol: Ditto, used mine once also but cursed the stupid release knobs i...

Re: Autoexpress report, possible £700 annual road toll bill, as evs hit fuel duty revenue

"Researchers say....". Nuff said. Paper talk.
Though obviously, one day, there will have to be some way of making up for the loss of duty on fuel.

An odd problem with my satnav

I drove to Gatwick last week and back to Leeds today. I had the satnav guiding me so that I had notice of any traffic problems, not because I thought I might get lost on the M1 and M25. On the southern part of the M1, and for a while on the northern stretch of the M25, as I approached slip roads the...
