Re: Stop/Start again a few thoughts

I've had mine for over 12 months, done 12,000 miles, and the start / stop hasn't worked once. Just sayin'....

Re: Rats

It comes to something when a group of mates can't go for a burger without someone getting all excited and reporting them to the Council :lol:

Re: Common spelling fails.

I'm reminded of the time, back before email, when I managed to stop a colleague sending a letter to a local lady Councillor (who had all the sense of humour of a road-killed hedgehog :roll: ), inviting her to a pubic meeting :lol: Only one letter missing, but it could have made a huge difference to...

Re: Someone tried to steal my XE last night

I love the keyless entry on mine. It's a tremendous thing. Wouldn't let the remote (no pun intended) possibility of some scroat trying to signal boost to steal it put me off. Would be a bit like not going abroad on holiday in case the plane crashes :lol:

Re: XE To Be Included in Jaguar Fixed Price Service Scheme

Ahhh. Sorry. I've mixed up two things here. I meant to add my post to one I'd seen about 3+ years old cars servicing.

Re: XE To Be Included in Jaguar Fixed Price Service Scheme

Had my XES serviced last week at a Jaguar main dealer under the 3+ service (cars 3 years old plus) thing. It was a four year (48k) minor service (although car has only done 29k mikes). Cost £225 inc VAT. Still a lot for what is basically an oil change - but still have one of the two year approved wa...

Re: V6 Engine oil available - at last!!

Wrong oil. With today's engines I would take it back and ask them to drop it and refill. Thanks chaps for the replies. Honestly, how hard can it be to get the right grade of oil for cars from your own franchised manufacturer ? !! They put 0W30 on last time. Looks like it should definitely be 0W20. ...

Re: V6 Engine oil available - at last!!

Had my XE-S serviced today at Jaguar. On the invoice, the oil used is stated as "SP 3000 F-F 5W20 FSY". Last year's service at the same place showed the oil as "1 ESP LV 0W30 FSYN". The oil filler cap says use Castrol 0W20 which is neither of the above ! Is this a problem ? Have they used the wrong ...
