Re: Car shampoo recommendations please

That looks fantastic, Vespa
Very classy colour

Halfords were selling off small bottles of "Shampoo and wax" for 80p recently so I grabbed loads and car looked great.
Wi ll use the Aqua Wax this weekend too, as I hear it might stop raining for half an hour.

Re: Few words about InControl Apps

You need to instal app „Jaguar Apps” on your phone and you will have full list of abailable apps. I know Spotify is available as semi-free (with ads) and your standard phone’s music app as well. Ah, I see. Not many apps available, is it? Consistent reviews too ;) iPlayer Radio* would be useful - lo...

Re: Few words about InControl Apps

Speaking of Apps, when I plug my phone into USB, it says it can't see any apps.
Are there any apps that let me play music off my phone?
I'm not bothered about the phones remote control, and don't want to pay a subscription.
Are there any interesting free apps?

Re: What age is attracted to the XE

49.96 (Jan this year) My ladywife saw a very smart Racing Green X-Type in the car park, and I couldn't believe you could get a good one, low mileage, for about £6000. I was looking as I've just stopped getting a company car, and this would be the first car I could choose myself for 20 years. But aft...

Re: Sewing machine FIX FIX FIX

That sounds very sensible, BRC.
I went for a spin, and the cable hadn't moved.
As you say, a quick look whenever you open the bonnet sounds wise.

Re: Sewing machine FIX FIX FIX

AAAARRRGH! Ha ha ha! I've done it, and it's completely amazing. Those of you who've had this understand. When I test drove the car, I noticed straight away, but I loved The Jag so much I just thought "That's diesels." This has really worked, thank you for this superb post! I found I could pop the ov...

Re: Jlr co fiddle ??

Yeah, I was just looking at that.
Volkswagen survived deliberate fiddling, mind.
I wonder if there'll be another recall about Fantasy MPG figures ...

Re: Sewing machine FIX FIX FIX

Hmm - I'm embarrassed to admit failure, but I couldn't get the earth bolt off. I removed the one from the overflow, but it gave me less play than I'd hoped - there's a surprising amount of wires attached to it. I got a spanner to the earth bolt, but couldn't shift it. I accept the lads in Solihull m...

Re: Drivers seat

Hello
A few people here were trying different things (much mention of Gliptone) - did any of them work?
Thanks
