Re: XE Production Restart

Interesting. Nothing going on in the press about discontinuing the XE. In fact, there are spy shots of a disguised, facelifted XF and most of the blurb is about the upcoming J-Pace SUV and the electric XJ. Also stories about others in the range getting the mild hybrid treatment as per the Evoque. Th...

Re: Dunlop Sportmax tyres cracking

These could have been the original tyres or might have been only 2ish years old, but definitely shows that these tyres can have issues when a couple of years old. I think you contradicted yourself there. If they "might" have been 2 years old it doesn't "definitely" show they can have issues when 2 ...

Re: XE Production Restart

Before any concerns about the autocar comments, firstly it isn't evidenced (no links to source data) and Autocar often get things plain wrong. The XE is still selling well, in fact after the "SUV's" it's the 3rd most popular seller. Screenshot_2020-07-02 Jaguar global sales by model 2013-2019 Statis...

Re: MOT's Important information.

A back up check to confirm things can be done via the car tax checker website which also shows MOT's including when due.

Re: MOT's Important information.

As far as I was aware the extension was only 6 months from the end of March until August any way and those running out in July would only be extended to August. I think that the Government website has been misunderstood by many. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-mots-for-cars-vans-an...

Re: Brake lights out?

Hi All Mine Offside brake light not working for a couple of days. Got the warning triangle on the dash. :!: :?: :shock: :? I thought there was no warnings for bulbs. This was confirmed by jag assist guy and by this forum! If that’s true it’s pretty disappointing. I think my 1997 BMW told me when a ...

Re: MOT's Important information.

Just in case anybody isn't aware, the extension period is being ended early and won't cover until March 2021.
Back to normal as of 1st August so get them done if you need to.

Re: leaper

If anything on the standard XE is slightly weak it’s that rear black plastic diffuser, but I’ve never seen any improvements people have made to that The V6 S had a nice valance - painted gloss black and with nice curves instead of the bare plastic one with the sharp crease. 20160421_144706.jpg 2016...

Re: Nooks and Crannies

I think the big step forward was galvanising bodies and parts etc. I remember Audi making a big thing about galvanising bodies to prevent rust in the days when new cars came from the factory already rusting! I think it can be a really good idea for parts that are on show all the time. But then again...
