Re: Have you checked your undercarraige ?

I agree with Jeff, that looks pretty normal and I would not lose any sleep over it.

Last time I looked under mine it was actually better than that and it has done 25k in five years and is kept in the open. Remember a garage can promote rust unless it is temperature controlled and dehumidified.

Re: New XE owner I have a question thanks

Mine has the auto light function and Xeon headlights and the auto light only turns the headlights on and off. Auto high beam assist was an option back in 2015/6, not sure if it became a standard feature or not. Mine is a 2015 car.

Re: Colour Code

Open the drivers door and at the bottom of the door opening there are two data panels. On mine the right one shows the tyre pressures and the left one shows car details with the paint code/name on the bottom line. The code is normally three letters.

Re: Special Tool Requirement to Change Pads and Discs

Brembo discs and Jaguar pads on mine. Steer clear of Delphi discs as there are/were problems with the alignment holes being in the wrong place, something they were not aware of a few months ago and may or may not be rectified now.

Re: 2018 Jaguar XE 25t Rear Brakes

Hi Bob, pads came from a Jaguar dealer. I went that route as there are quite a few variations out there so if they were wrong I could just take them back and ask for the correct version.

Re: 2018 Jaguar XE 25t Rear Brakes

I had Brembo discs and genuine Jag pads and sensors. I had an independent garage do the work for me and the cost for everything was £360.

Re: 2018 Jaguar XE 25t Rear Brakes

You can try Jaguar themselves but don’t expect to much. The rear pads and discs on my 25T had to be replaced at 18k miles as they were totally worn out. Apparently this sort of rear brake wear is to be expected with the brake vectoring and is not actually a fault. I had a better quality rear disc fi...

Re: Waze for idiots.

One very simple thing to check, is the cable you are using to connect the iPhone the genuine Apple cable ?

There were lots of early issues connecting a phone with a third party cable and I am not sure if they were fixed or not.

Re: Serviced - oil changed?

As all the other replies, oil in diesels is black within a couple of miles.

A couple of years ago I did an oil change on one of my Defenders and after it had done only 10 miles or so I had to drop the sump to replace an oil pump bolt. I was shocked how dirty it was after so few miles.

Re: Vespa gone?

Vespa has been on this forum as long, or longer, than I have. The information that he has supplied to members has been invaluable to many especially in the early days of the XE. There are always a few that know far better than anybody else and , unfortunately this time, it has meant that a very valu...
