Spot of confusion here I suspect Ant. The sewing machine noise only affected the Xe-S. It was never a problem with diesels.
No confusion here ;)

It's made my diesel sound like a different car.

Re: 24 MONTH SERVICE

Wow, that's amazing.
Yes, the oil change is a garage job, but topping up AdBlue and brake fluid are easy.
"Check if gear change smooth"?
"Check if it pulls to one side"?
You do that yourself every day.
Very interesting.

Re: Jag spec 0-30 SHUP oil £18.42

That's an amazing deal - thank you.
5litres is £40 on Amazon.
Mind you, 5 litres is going to last me a long time.
Does oil go off?

Re: Sewing machine FIX FIX FIX

Phil Have a look over the right side of the engine. You'll see the expansion tank that needs its retaining bolt removing so you can move get easier access to the upper end of the earth strap. Just moving the tank an inch or two can make all the difference. As my pictures show, it's not easy to take ...

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.
