Re: Phone texts not appearing on ICT

If it's since an update to your phone blame Apple. Their updates always cause issues. Have you checked your Bluetooth connectivity is still ok? Might be worth re-pairing the device to the car

Re: To debadge or not to debadge?

I don’t think I’m ready to start cutting my car apart just yet. Would it affect the warranty in doing so? One of the main reasons for chopping in our old XF was to have a car under warranty again. I’ve never been a fan of debagdged cars. I’m the one that likes to add more badges to a car. I’ll admi...

Re: To debadge or not to debadge?

I though debadging was only the reserve of boy racers driving 10 yr old Golf GTi's who hang out in a McDonalds carparks blasting out the stereo with the windows wide open.

Re: words fail me!

My start/stop also stopped working -- to my utter delight! This is one of the things I dislike about European cars (it's not unique to Jaguar). Obviously, when I had the car at serviced I did not mention the start/stop issue. I have owned now 5 cars with stop/start. 2 Ford Mondeo's, a Vauxhall Insi...

Re: Exhaust tailpipes XE & XE-S

New tips arrived today. I went for the shiny black as the Matt look don't go well and the shiny chrome just look a bit too bright. I'm happy with the compromise between the two.

Now need to go wash car again when I get back from a long overdue bike ride.

Re: Aftermarket Alloys - fitment

They look dangerously borderline. Are you sure they are all definitely inside the wheel arch? Has has to be a minimum 3rd of the circumference of the wheel inside the arch, not just the very top so if the bodywork curves in it still has to cover it. Look very smart mind.

Re: Exhaust tailpipes XE & XE-S

@Llowen thanks for letting me know. It's a shame as the ones on previous posts look superb. I'll give the Yeti ones a go. I saw a lovely XE today in Harrogate (few here but not as many as there are F-Pace , they are common as muck in these parts) black paintwork, tinted windows, black 19" alloys, bl...

Re: Exhaust tailpipes XE & XE-S
