The car performed perfectly on the 280 mile journey home, the last 90 miles on single carraigeways where it dispensed slower traffic with ruthless precision ;)
"Dispensed slower traffic with ruthless precision".

What a wonderful phrase!

Re: Stretched Timing Chains

Phil, slight tangent to OP, are you aware of any tensioner/timing chain stretching issues with 3.0s engine? In a word.....no. I'm willing to be corrected but I can't recall any major issues with the V6 at all. The only blip with mine was on the second one which threw an intermittent engine manageme...

Re: Apple CarPlay and Android

Just nicked something from the F-Pace forums. The updating of older Pro equipped vehicles to give Carplay/Android Auto has been temporarily suspended due to some issues. So if you haven't already had it done then there may be a bit of a wait if yours is an older XE. ICT PRO vehicles only. Last page ...

Please don't turn this into an argument about the value of such stuff as it is just to let those who like to add this stuff to their fuel know about the offer. :)
Glad you said that.
We might have been in for yet another good dose of pedantry.

Re: Front wheel spin when entering flow of traffic from junctions

I presume the OP has an AWD XE? If not getting wheelspin from the front wheel of a RWD XE would be the strangest fault ever! :lol: :lol: I never had any issues with both my XE's unless you gave it a big bootful with plenty of steering lock. That was on Dunlops with plenty of decent tread on them. If...

Re: Stretched Timing Chains

A bent camshaft is a bent camshaft so if that was actually the case the engine would run like a bucket of bolts although it probably wouldn't run at all.
As it seemed to run fine with the eml light on I would think this is still camshaft sensor/software problems.

Re: Advice on replacement tyre please

The argument is entirely yours and of your own making. I spent almost my entire working life in the industry, and have been retired for over 21 years so I think I've probably forgotten more than you are ever likely to know about it. I did suggest you leave it. Any more comments of that kind to anot...

Thanks Phil. I am trying to think positive and am just glad it's not in the bones.
That's a start anyway.
