Re: Replacing wheel advise

Have a play with this web site and compare the outcomes. Looks to me as if the larger rim/offset brings the wheel in to the body.

Re: Cost of White Paint

On the OP's subject, the other thing I find bad, is the new cat's eyes, just as well be non existent around these parts, where they are installed. A turn off from a slip road to the M23 used to be well "lit" by a multitude of coloured cats eyes and was vey necessary given the total darkness of the ...

Re: New Tesla Pickup Truck

Always amuses me how the audience cheers like it's the best thing since sliced bread :lol: Got to be the most butt ugly vehicle ever created. Also amused that one test was to fire a 9 mm bullet at the door! Only in America.

Re: Misfire when cold starting 2015 Xe r-sport 180 diesel

Looking at typical prices and specs they don't look like an expensive item and typically from what i can see about a fiver. I too cannot find them anywhere so I assume you'll be obliged to source from a dealer.

Re: Long live the oil burner

Its been approved Bev and happens in 2 years time. Euro emission 6 are exempt but all other diesel cars will be banned. In consequence the problem will shift to another area of Bristol and so it goes on. I'm also highly amused that electric cars are of course welcome because they don't bring polluti...

Re: Automatic Gear Oil Change

But the point is Jaguar say not to change the oil whereas ZF the makers of the box do say do change the oil. Which would you prefer to believe? Would seem to me Jaguar are saying what many owners would like to hear but the reality may not be quite the case which in a roundabout way is why you are el...

Re: Automatic Gear Oil Change

I'd urge some doubt about Jaguars view on matters when ZF (the box manuafacturer) says the oil should be changed at circa 150 k kilometers. https://aftermarket.zf.com/go/en/aftermarket-portal/passenger-cars-and-lcv/know-how/useful-tips/transmission-oil-change/ Maybe Jaguar expect the life of the ca...

Re: Newbie. Diesel Exhaust Fluid

From the experiences various folk have had you really do not want to over fill it. Personally I would put in less than 12 litres and certainly the first fill put into my 180 was 10 litres. Better still if you are still under warrenty then let Jaguar refill at typically £30 for the pleasure.

Re: Reversing camera

Interesting to hear that and curiously on the XF (250) that was also the understanding. However an enterprising soul dug around in the boot of his XF and found all the necessary cables to enable him to retrofit a camera but they were purposely hidden from view. In a similar vein all XF's shipped wit...
