Stupid boring, very small quiz

Yet another dull day, thank you Covid-19. I was looking at my expensive driveway ornament, as you do, when bored, and I wondered how many Growlers, Leapers, and the word "Jaguar" are present inside and outside the car. If you feel slightly bored too, preferably without going out to your car, how man...

Re: Coin holder

Does anyone know if the facelift XE has the same size and layout of the area under the armrest?

Re: Road Rash on the skirt area just in front of the rear wheels

When I fitted the Aliath plastic covers they did say that it might look a bit hazy but this normally goes away after a few days. Hope this applies in your case.

Re: 4 months in long stay car park.

I am very impressed but not totally surprised, the system does seem to go to sleep quite well. My son's F-Type is regularly going four weeks at a time without being started and all has been OK so far. But the piece de resistance is his DS3 daily driver which he had to leave up here in Scotland becau...

Re: Road Rash on the skirt area just in front of the rear wheels

Isopropyl alcohol (IPO) if I can spell it right, to remove the wax and any other sealant or sticky stuff, then, hopefully, you can reinstate a decent level of clean.

Re: Amazon reviews

That's the thing, the e-mail came from Amazon and not the manufacturer via Amazon and it would defeat the entire purpose if the seller could delete reviews on Amazon's web-site. However, I've submitted a review again, giving it one star this time, and stated that Amazon had deleted the last review a...

Re: Amazon reviews

That's the point. I didn't say it was fake or counterfeit, I said it didn't work but I fixed it. Defective, not fake.

How can you accuse a random Chinese manufacturer of a simple, random product, of making a counterfeit product?

Amazon reviews

Fake Amazon reviews are a problem for buyers in that quite a few sellers seem to submit fake reviews with similar wording, often with wording that would not be used by a person with English as their first language and some of them are fairly easy to spot, but I have just experienced a new twist.

Re: XE Golf Umbrella

My son got me a Jaguar Golf Umbrella for Christmas, from Jaguar. It is longer than the one being discussed because I tried the locations shown and it wouldn't fit. For about 10 minutes, I had it fitted to the underside of the boot lid but it had to be positioned just so or else one end or the other ...
