Meh, nothing that a squirt of silicone sealant and a wet finger won't fix.

Oooh!
XFR-S
My dealer had one of those for sale.
Belonged to a bloke who traded in his XFR for it but brought it back after only a month.
Apparently his quote was "The XFR only tried to kill me once in a while, The R-S tried to kill me every day!"

PhilB, that is actually a rendering of an XE decked out in garb similar to the XFR-S. Somebody's wish list, but I agree it looks really good.

Glad someone is starting to mod the XE but this is a definite nay for me... looks like they were trying too hard and it ends up looking like what we call in the states a "ricer". Though some people like that look I guess.

As far as the claimed increase in HP, these gains can be had with a tune and lower supercharger pulley from VelocityAP... in fact their tune alone will get you over 400hp. Not to sound like an advertisement or anything, no relation to the company but they've worked closely with members of JaguarForums and they seem like they know their stuff.

No details in the post about the upgraded brakes or if the suspension was modded but I'd be interested to hear what they did in that department.

It may be their own brand.
I don't think anybody on here used any of their stuff.
I think you will have to contact them and ask.

Don"t thnk this company does " SUBTLE " ! ! I for one have done a few minor alterations but do admit at least one to be a bit " marmite " but overall I am completely happy with all of them ! ! It would be an extremely boring world if we all had the same tastes ? :D :D :D
