Re: Royal Ascot

Make sure you don't "accidentally" get lost and end up at the McLaren dealer by the station Phil :D I heard there was one but haven't had a visit yet - waiting for a lottery win. Felix.gif My normal route to the dealer is to cut down through Windsor but sometimes I take the scenic route on the A30 ...

Royal Ascot

What does this have to do with a car forum I hear you ask? Couple of things really. The good people of Mersyside built my next JLR product just over a week ago and apparently it's coming down this week. However, my dealer is in Ascot High Street right behind the racecourse and they close down whilst...

Re: Parking brake XE-R Sport

Yep.
My 2015 XE had to have the park brake applied manually.
My 2017 one is automatic.

Re: New puncture proof tyres

Re: Stop/Start again a few thoughts

Somewhere in this thread a member has reported that Ctek themselves do not recommend using regeneration on our AGM batteries. ??? Yes it was mentioned. Personally I think they are not the solution for stop start. I think it is software related with regards to the modules etc. I am still on the orig...

Re: Picture of the month on XE forums?

Imagine the shame of publicly confusing an F-Pace with an F-Type? On a Jaguar forum And you're a moderator! :lol: Couple of things here.

On the F-Type forum the winner of picture of the month has their picture uploaded to replace (in our case) the picture of the red XE S on the homescreen if you aren't logged in.
Do we? I didn't know this.
SimpleR from F-Type forum.
