Re: which options??

My preference options wise were the heated front screen (came with heated steering wheel and called cold climate pack at the time) front parking sensors and rear camera (again these options came together and called parking pack) and space saver wheel. Those were the options I would not budge on and ...

MOT

Well the cat passed its first MOT with no issues.
Can’t say I’m surprised given that I’d already replaced all the discs, pads and the 2 rear tyres.

I've isolated it down to something coming from the brake pedal. When I tap the brake mid corner the sound goes away...really weird.
I’d advise you get the brakes checked.
Plenty of issues with them

Re: Just had to replace all disks and pads

Mine had to be replaced at about 15,000 miles/2 years due to rot. The standard OE discs have no resistance to corrosion. Yep sadly it’s a very common story. Never seen a car with brakes this bad, they corrode like mad, Must be made out of recycled 1970’s Lancias and Alfa Romeos! 10, 20 and 30,000 m...

Re: Just had to replace all disks and pads

Took my car for a fault with the bonnet not closing on right side, Jaguar Stratstone did a health check and told me £1300 of urgent repairs are required. The car is 3 years old (1.5 years into it's approved 2 year warranty) with 35k miles on the clock. I was fine with the pads being replaced but th...

Re: Cost of Discs and Pads

Just had my rear discs and pads done at 53k, just under four years old. Cost £190 with a mobile mechanic albeit just bog standard discs. Dealer quoted £489, unclear whether this was including VAT or not but either way not a chance at that price! My car is a 180 Prestige RWD. I would imagine that wa...

Re: Cost of Discs and Pads

j3bnl, quite a substantial saving by shopping around, are they using original parts, or otherwise what make of discs/pads are they using? To be honest I’m not 100% sure. They said I’d have a choice of 2 and both were within a £ or two of each other. They’ve ordered in both types so I will take thei...

Re: Cost of Discs and Pads

Well my local garage wanted £750 which I thought was quite steep so I made a couple of calls. Another very reputable local garage (the one who checked my tyres) has got the business, he came in at £640 which I thought was not too bad. I did call my local Jaguar dealership and they quoted an eye wate...
