Wow, thanks for all the comments Guys. I will definitely make sure that genuine Jaguar parts are used. Have already bought the correct oil ready as I am going to change my oil at the year point as I do relatively low miles. The only other concern I would have is whether my local Guy can in some way update the electronic service history for the car? May be it will be ok to just have receipts etc.

Thanks all
Mark

Any recommendations for independents near Ascot? Think the closest on the list linked earlier is Maidenhead.

The time came for my XE Sport 240 to have its' 4yr/40k mile service. Car is under a two year used Jaguar warranty so first visited the main dealers.

It is a major service, yet only comprises changing the oil, air and cabin pollen fillers, the oil and brake fluid. Plus checks all over the car.

Main dealers near me Slough/Amersham/Ascot/Acton quoted between £460 and £560. Not sure these quotes included brake fluid change as Topix service schedule says only to check brake fluid level in master cylinder.

Have used independents for many years and found a Jaguar specialist not too far from me. Powerbell in Taplow (www.powerbell.co.uk).

Their quote, using Jaguar consumables was £291.

I booked in and they did the service whilst I waited in a coffee shop down the road for an hour and a half.

Very routine, Topix all up to date.

Will definitely use them again.

I can highly highly recommend Tom @ TL Jaguar - https://www.tomlenthall.co.uk/ near Wokingham

Took my XKR to him for 10+ years including servicing, diagnostics and performance upgrades. He's an ex-Jaguar Master technician and does everything from modern stuff to E-types/original XKs (he also races so he knows how to do performance tuning, but is a BAD influence on the wallet! :lol:). I had tried another indy in the past near Andover, but had a couple of bad experiences.

Tom on the other hand, is great and wouldn't take my Jags anywhere else once out of warranty... He will also recommend whether you need to use gen Jag parts or if aftermarket/breakers stuff is as good/better & cheaper, as appropriate.

Yesterday I had my 40,000 mile service completed by AJW based in Newcastle under Lyme. I’m very happy with the all aspects of the service provided and will use them again.

I contacted the Jaguar dealers in my local area and the price for the service varied from £420 to £513. AWJ quoted £229 without having the air filter changed. The service took under 2 hours to complete and they have a very comfy sofa and nice coffee while you are waiting.

Topix was updated and showing on the Jaguar app by the time I got home.

I'm glad to hear that as mine is booked with them in a fortnight for a wheel bearing and MOT. First time I've used them, ex Rybrook.

It is great to hear that some of the independents used by other posters have updated Topix straight away. When I had my 2 year service at the main dealers I had bought the car from. It took several phone calls and several weeks for them to get it done. I am sure an independent would have been cheaper too.

I'll be trying out Tom Lenthall Limited in Finchampstead (Berkshire) in April. For my #4 service, they're £200 cheaper than Jaguar.

Anyone tried them?
