Re: XE R19 Venoms Tyre choice?

I've been looking at tyres for the XE for a while now. There seem to be two stand out choices, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5. I'm leaning towards the Goodyear option at the moment as reviews indicate they are a little more malleable at the limit and slightly bett...

Re: What's in your media system?

Also sad news, we lost Tim Smith of Cardiacs fame this week, Florian Schneider from Kraftwerk a few weeks ago. It is getting depressing.

Spent 3 hours in the car yesterday, so I listened to quite a lot of music. The stand out track was this half a century old song from 1970. It sounded absolutely amazing through the Meridian :D
Sad news, Peter Green has today sadly passed away.

RIP Peter. :(
Sad news indeed. RIP Peter.

Re: Excessive Outer Shoulder Tire Wear

Thread resurrection time. Has anybody run increased negative camber on these cars? Is it even adjustable? I'm prone to enjoying the corners and find the car works both ends hard on the outer edges of the tyres. I'm tempted to up pressures slightly, but that can reduce contact patch area. Visually, t...

Re: Speed Limit Reductions

Plonkers in my town are planning more cycle lanes and bus lanes with cameras. Yesterday I was sat at traffic lights that allow buses to have priority from the left for about 25 yards and camera checked. Lo and behold the bus that triggered the stop for my side had no passengers on it at all. That c...

Re: Why we love our Jaguar

Simple, it's the most fun car I've ever owned, and probably the most fun car I've ever driven :D I say probably the most fun I've driven - the competition was a VXR8 around Donington Park, six litres of Aussie V8 lunacy on a racetrack is hard to argue with! :lol: The VXR8 was on my shortlist when I...

Re: SCAM, SCAM, SCAM

I had a slimy sounding individual phone me a couple of weeks ago. Claimed to be from Virginmedia. His line of questioning to confirm I was who I was supposed to be got me suspicious, so I gave him an earful of my best quality abuse and put the phone down. Checked the number out and it is associated ...

Re: Amazon reviews

Best to report the seller to Amazon for review rigging! Was the product bought from Amazon themselves or from an independent seller on Amazon marketplace?

Re: Are 20's too much?

Personally though I would go forged wheels if you are going to 20's in the XE, the weight difference is immediately noticeable and a huge improvement over the Jag wheels which seem to be made of black hole material, they are so heavy. :lol: Originally I thought they where made of osmium, but I thin...
