It depends on the age of the car.
Twin pipes on one side used to be for 180 diesels.

The 240BHP Diesel definately has the seperate pipes.

Re: Good Bye to the XE

Re: Power loss

So further to my previous post, the car hit 3000 miles and we experienced the same problem and it didn't seem to go away - it always felt hesitant when pulling away and would only accelerate smoothly if you were gentle with the accelerator - which kind of defeats the point of the car. So car went in...

thanks for the info I will try a few more quotes
Got the ALA Gap insurance with our XE despite Jaguar saying theirs was better etc - if you google ALA and Money Saving Expert you should find a code for 25% off (at least it worked when we got ours)

What year is your XE? The earlier models had a different central display to the later models - you can look in the handbook for your model here --> http://www.ownerinfo.jaguar.com/

Re: Colts Jag

Looking good - can I humbly recommend gyeon q2 tyre gel which is a water based gel that leaves a really nice, not too shiny finish to the tyres and Really complement the look of the tyre.
