Re: What should I go for.

Just been having a talk to someone I know who is a mechanic for Mercedes. He says on the Mercedes modern diesel, there in no concern with low mileage and things clogging. The injection of the add blue helps the system to clean out. So what experience are people having with the Xe engine. I know tha...

Re: Michelin PS4s tyres

I finally went with PS4s 225/40 R19 93Y (front) & 255/35 R19 96Y (rear). I got them for three months now and they perform very well. On wet, the grip is amazing and on dry the tires feel very soft and quiet, absorbing a lot of bumps. Before these I had the Dunlop Sport Maxx and I can tell that thes...

Reliability survey

According to What Car's? survey (see link below), Jaguar is the 4th most unreliable brand. Not my experience certainly. Maybe it's the brake disc issue that's let them down? ... otors.html

Re: Recording Independent Service

When my XE was serviced the dealer still gave me a printed invoice with the reg number VIN etc & all details of what was done. The online service record isnt hugely important. A paper full service history is better imho. Why not just keep the receipt and details of work carried out from your indepe...

Re: Mot time

Has anyone else had problems with their first MOT? A number of posts have been made concerning scoring of brake discs, for example and I wonder if anyone has failed the MOT or picked up advisories?

Has anyone here used an outfit called Roadserve? I was given free membership via Churchill insurance and apparently they arrange servicing and MOT's for you via their website. You can choose either main dealer or independent and a price discount is achieved as they can obtain "fleet rates". They cha...

Re: Incontrol remote premium renewal

I've just filled in the form for an insurance estimate on and it's asking if I have a tracker fitted. Looking at my "InControl Secure" paperwork it says I have a "Thatcham Cat. 6 Stolen Vehicle Tracking System" fitted. Confused want to know what brand of tracker I have fitted and the dr...

Re: Black wheels, are they practical?

I like the overall look, but yes it shows up more when you've scratched them. Scratched mine badly against a concrete lane barrier coming out of a multi-storey, partly due to the poor side visibility of the XE. Bought a repair kit via ebay that has covered it and doesn't look too bad - unless you ex...
