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

I’ve popped off a turbo hose on one of my old cars - certainly go with a bang don’t they! Mine was the same situation, the pipe hadn’t been fully seated on the metal part it joined to and under a bit of hard acceleration off it popped. A reseat and tighten of the jubilee clip saw it fine for the res...

Re: What type of system do I have?

I’ve read that you cannot swap the unit out for one from another Jag XE as they’re coded to the car, but you can swap out for an aftermarket unit as seen here https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/xe-x ... ia-213980/

Re: Car is very jerky for first couple of minutes, normal?

It’s ~20 seconds in my xe to finish the cold start if it’s a completely cold engine. You should see start up revs of ~1500 which then drop to ~750 after that period.

Re: Car is very jerky for first couple of minutes, normal?

Are you letting it finish the ‘cold start’? I find that if I drive off before that has finished (i.e. revs have dropped to normal) then it is a bit jerky. I try and let it finish every time unless I’m in a rush.

Re: AEB

I’ve had the above happen in similar situations too.

Top gear recently had a segment on it where they tried to get it to activate using cardboard cutouts and such. All that happened was the car ploughed through them!

Re: Lets see your other cars!

Skyline R33 GTR, should never have sold it with prices now rocketing! Was immaculate and had 502 bhp. When the turbos kicked in it felt like a punch in the chest.

Re: Drivers seat

I bought a bottle of the gliptone 1208 that was mentioned and it didn’t seem to make a difference - 12000 mile r-sport seats going baggy and slight cracks in the perforated sections despite regular leather conditioning.

Re: £1500 Deposit Contribution

My understanding is that if you finance under an HP type deal, you can take advantage of their offer and then settle the balance within the first couple of months with minimal interest added, as long as the interest isn’t front loaded. Happy to be corrected though.

Re: Wheels

I have aftermarket wheels - 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear so very much wider than standard. Was told by all suppliers that they wouldn’t fit, they do! People don’t seem to experiment with Jags; just do the maths and use websites like willtheyfit.com and you’ll find that suddenly lots of wheels that “...

Re: "Press ok to clear" on dash

It’s normal on startup - shows which passengers have their belts on and which don’t. Should go after a few secs.
