Re: JLR and BMW

"In BMW's case, it announced a 78% decline in first quarter profits last month and warned annual earnings would be down on the previous 12 months".

Not just JLR then, the whole industry is under stress! A tie up makes sense and you could do worse than BMW.

Re: Pads and discs at 20k?

Said it before but seriously £1400 odd to replace brake discs/pads, someone is deluded! As has been suggested by ChrisGB parts can be had for under £200 and I'd be pretty certain an indie would fit for about the same again saving circa £1000. Alternatively get the discs re-surfaced by Pro-Cut and w...

Re: Pads and discs at 20k?

Don't those rust spots wear off when the car is driven? Mine look like that if I leave the car standing out in the rain, but as soon as I use the car, the rust spots are worn off again. ...yes but the pads are giving uneven wear across the face of the disc so there are peaks and troughs which show ...

Re: Pads and discs at 20k?

Good, I hope they come to their senses. :D ..well they didn't - the dealer just came back to me having looked at the discs/pads and decided they aren't covered under warranty, the official line on the vehicle health check as follows: FRONT: DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING SECTION OF BRAKES ON WORKSHOP MANUAL...

Re: Face lift model

I've got to agree with Delboy on that gear stick. The rotary selector is one of the (many) reasons I like being in my XE. Drove a new auto Evoque the other day and really didn't like the gear selector. If it's the same as in the E Pace then I do agree with you Delboy. I had use of an E Pace for a s...

Re: Scratches and whatnot

...when I bought my car I took out 'Smart Insurance' and I have to say it's been fantastic - I've had them out a couple of times and you really would find it hard to see where the dent/scuff/chip has been once they have 'done their thing'. fyi, they cover,quote: Scratches, scuffs and dents up to 300...
