Re: Project Redrum

If the replacement leaper isnt right (I ordered one and the cat was malnourished and looked silly) it is easy to DIY. I took mine off (dental floss, there might be a positioning stud as well). cleaned it up with turps, and then sprayed it with 3 or more coats of caliper paint. Then I stuck it back o...

Re: Brake caliper maintenance

I did it on an XF (metal) and my XKR (had grey calipers, wanted red). I actually had the wheel shop do it for me because I am not enormously handy when it comes to that kind of thing being a little (lot) on the impatient side, and it is easy for them to pop the car up on a hoist to do it. For the ba...

Re: the old and the new

IRR/Firenze is such a pretty colour. Both of our Jags are in it, the new one is coming in it, and I really wouldnt want anything else at the moment. Looks great with the black pack.

Re: XF 3.0 Supercharged to XE S?

I had dark blue leather in my silver s60R, it looked awesome and was beautiful analine. I wouldnt pick it for a red car, but I'd take it over red seats which always reminds me of something from Carrie.

Re: XF 3.0 Supercharged to XE S?

Awesome! Yes the showroom is all done, carpark is challenging but otherwise lovely. Our XE P300 HSE has just come off the ship (been having fun tracking the journey on vesselfinder, fair weather "Morning Lena" on your way to Korea) so I'll be taking delivery from Southport in a week or two. Middle o...

Re: XF 3.0 Supercharged to XE S?

I was really impressed with the new XF when I drove it, even in the 25T format. I think it looks a little more impressive than the XE as well, sitting side by side though maybe you have to be an owner to notice. Personally I think that the one you have looks more special (I had a 2008 XF 4.2 then a ...

Re: Rear led light not working

I couldnt get into that light assembly when we had a bulb failure (actually from memory there are 2 in there). You go in through a side panel in the boot, on one side it is easy but on the other there is another panel in the way. The handbook was no help though I am not particularly talented in this...

Re: Android broken bluetooth again?

Not me. The only thing that worked for me was adding the phonebook app. Mine works perfectly now (after months of problems), except that new texts dont pop up (though I can still see them if I go to messages). That is probably a setting that I changed in the car when doing the "go back to bluetooth ...

Re: P300 XE CarPorn

I read somewhere recently (maybe this forum?) that if you dont turn your head to look at your car when you walk away from it, you've got the wrong car.
