Re: Winter prep

Just fitted Falken winters on the back of our XE. And a full set of Pirelli Sottozeros on our XF AWD. Our temps won't be much above 6 or 7 for the rest of they year and April is probably about the time we will change back. Not a good idea to have winter tyres on just one axle. It is important to fi...

Re: Caliper painting

all very lovely, thanks for the pics. The absence of trees in the scenery is intriguing but I wont veer off topic to ask about that, I'll google it instead! Edit - I had a look online and your location looks amazing, I could never tire of that. Too windy for trees Bruce! There are some small planta...

Caliper painting

Thought I would post a few pics of my freshly painted calipers. Too stormy to take it out of the garage yet but you get the idea. HT paint, 3 to 4 coats each of primer, colour, stickers then clearcoat.

Re: Radiator Fan continually on

I had mine done. Got it booked in via my salesman friend who asked the engineers. They said it was a recall but they were only doing it in stages so as not to get swamped as it wasn't critical. H291 I think was the recall number for the 2.0 litre ingenium petrol - mine is the 300ps in my Sportbrake....

Re: Jaguar Upgrade Opportunity

The dealers are short of second hand cars apparently. This is why and they will try and talk you in to a new one with a big discount. Might work for you, no harm in trying to see what the figures are :)

Re: New member

Petrol, same engine as the XE but 300ps. It's my second XF (new shape) and my second Sportbrake. Loads of go, quicker than the 3.0D as it's lighter. Not as much torque as the Diesel but pulls throughout the rev range, whereas the diesel dropped of after 3k revs. Loads of space for a road trip and a ...

Long time Jaguar owner, this will be number 9 and an addition to my current car a 300 Sport XF Sportbrake in Silver. ...
