Re: Disc and Pad Replacement

The anti freeze I plan on saying doesn't need replacing. As I had pointed out to me. Air con is gonna have to be done, I will use the heating/climate control now it's winter for sure. Break fluid could be needing replaying due to the overuse of the rear breaks linked with the "guided pins and calli...

Re: An XE Meet up?

The breakfast club was very well attended in the early days of the XE but seems to have gone a bit quiet lately. I was there in June and only one or two XE's were there. With quite a few newer members it might be worth making sure we advertise it a bit better on here come the spring. Good chance to ...

Re: Most annoying driving habits?

Re: Most annoying driving habits?

Can't remember his name but the instructor involved was a bit of a legend.
Huge bloke (Sergeant) with a big black beard.
Did they get you to do the "strip" without stopping the bike?

Re: Most annoying driving habits?

Paddles are used sometimes, when i really play on the twisties. :D :lol: I never did a solo course but some of the things I used to hear were pretty scary. Blokes out in the wilds going through sweeping bends with white knuckles finding themselves suddenly getting faster only to see the instructor ...

Re: Is it reassuring?

Well, that wasn't bad at all.

Re: Most annoying driving habits?

The auto box makes things much simpler as it should always be in the correct gear for any potential hazard after slowing down for it. On a manual box I was taught to use brakes until your speed is reduced enough for the actual or potential hazard and then to select the appropriate gear for speed of ...

Re: Tyre Insurance

I would shop around for tyre insurance as things like that (GAP comes to mind) from the dealer are often much more expensive. As regards the tyre sizes according to the sticky on the car: Front: 225/40R19 93Y Rear : 255/35R19 96Y I'm also not sure what 19" tryes the factory are fitting at the moment...

Re: Thanks for help - new XE ordered

So how long is it going to be before I stop fumbling around for a clutch pedal when approaching junctions? I've had the Jaguar 7 weeks or so now and I still find myself doing it occasionally. As long as you aren't using your left foot on an imaginary clutch and hitting the brake!!! :lol: It can tak...

Re: Another Jaguar remote question.

Well bu**er me! (Exclamation not a request :D ) I would never have thought at looking at the fuse. I know in the past I've mentioned about going over the fuse boxes and pressing them in and the relays as well as they were probably put in by some robot and a lot seemed to be not fully home. I wonder ...
