Re: Boot badges

Hi I’ve done it to my XE D180 SE auto AWD R Dynamic. I’ve deleted the D180 totally and the rest including leaper and JAGUAR motif renewed in gloss black. Looks good against white bodywork. It’s a doddle but I found the hair drier ineffectual and used an electric heat gun instead (£10 at Aldi). Once ...

Re: 2019 XE SE dynamic AWD Warranty

Majority of my customers comment on a jaguar being used as a taxi but no one bats an eye when a 3/5 series Beemer or a C class Merc turns up to take them to there destination. Just shows how special Jaguar are and how they are perceived by the majority of the general public

There are no radios or metres now. Everything is controlled via computer through a mobile head unit (in my case a Samsung mobile phone with the company app installed)

The black cab is for Hackney work and I don’t hold a Hackney license, they (Hackney license) can cost the price of an apartment and are quite rare to come by. There issue is tightly controlled by local issuing councils

Re: 2019 XE SE dynamic AWD Warranty

I know it’s not the wisest choice I’ve ever made but I just love jags. This is my third, the other two being private cars and XF’s with the S type engine. I could list a few faults with the XE one of which is it isn’t the roomiest of cars, but it’s a jag and it does so much so well I overlook it’s s...

I emphasised at the point of sale that it was for taxiing purposes but of late I find myself wondering (and worrying) if the manufacturers warranty applies to taxis, how long for and what miles it’s good for. I’ve asked the maintenance department at...

Re: Another Stratstone Closed

In the northeast we’ve lost the Houghton Le Spring jaguar dealership and Land Rover Stockton on Teeside have moved into jaguar premises. I understand the logic in consolidating but think Stratstone might be suffering a downturn in fortunes as it cuts back Introduction I’m a new member to this forum ...
