Hi all,

Newbie to the forum and also to the Jaguar brand! Ordered my first Jaguar - XE portfolio 180bhp 2.0 diesel. Have to say I was impressed with the trim (only had to add on privacy glass). My soon to be previous car is the Lexus is220d sport which has a massive standard equipment list which I thought would be hard to beat but Jaguar has certainly impressed with the XE! I just hope the DPF filter in the Jag is a million times better than the Lexus!!!!!!!

Welcome to the forum!

Nice choice of XE ... although I'm biased as I chose the same base spec!

What was so bad about the Lexus DPF? I've had DPF on 2 cars now and never any issues. .. so far!

Thanks Quigon! Portfolio seemed to be the best choice as I'm not a huge fan of sports suspension set ups now.

I had to have a new engine put in a couple of years back due to DPF regeneration failures. Fuel efficieny went from 44 mpg to currently 26-27 and I always get a load of smoke for a few minutes everyday. The design of the DPF system was flawed from what I gather. Shame really as apart from these issues it was a great car for its time.
