Re: customer service

I got a nearly new F-type when mine went in for warranty work. Which was nice. Previous to that I took my XK in to an indi sports car specialist and got a 22 year old Porsche Boxter with starship mileage, a manual box, and a sports exhaust as a loaner. It was a hoot. Generally, I'm just grateful for...

Re: 2017 XE normally this loud?

Hmmm. Wonder whether loud = sewing machine ? Is it an unpleasant loud ? Mine was horrendous till I fitted the Halfords strap and now it is all lovely and smooth and V6'y with a slight supercharger whine. I did have a courtesy car f-type 340 with the same engine as mine and it was really loud. Delibe...

I've had my XE for 9 months and done 7,000 miles and the Start/Stop hasn't activated once. Which is nice.

Isn't it supposed to be a sign of good luck ?

Re: Anyone still looking for a new V6 XE-S (380)

That is lovely. If I hadn't blown £28k on my 16 plate six months ago I'd be finding the extra £8k now and buying that one !

Re: Sewing machine FIX FIX FIX

It is one of those noises that, once you hear it, and tune into it, you can't not hear it again. I'm convinced this is why some magazine road testers said the V6 motor was 'coarse'. Too right it was. Mine sounded horribly 'tappety' at higher revs - and especially on the overrun. It was horrible. The...
