Random gift

Post by FourFoot » Thu Feb 02, 2017 9:33 pm

Heard a thud from my front door this morning, went for a look and there was a weighty box with a jaguar postmark on it. Inside was two nice sets of chrome dust caps with greyscale union jacks on the tip, two hefty leaper keyring with a leather loop and a jaguar compliments slip.

Already had the union jack dust caps on the f-type, so at least I now how some spares for when some yobbo decides they'd look better on their car.

Anyone else had any random gifts?

When I first got my car, a friend thought it would be amusing to buy me a flat cap and leather driving gloves. :roll:

I hope they had the string back on the gloves.

FourFoot, you really must tell us all about your dealer.
Gifts post delivery and unsolicited are just unheard of!

Were they from Jaguar directly or your dealer?

The dust caps will look good on a black Corsa with black wheels and blacked out windows and lavatory pipe size exhaust to complement the little sh*t driving it :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

We got a bunch of flowers and one very nice leaper key fob. I would have liked 2 though. I am happy with that anyway as my wife loved the flowers.

At the risk of setting a precedent I do have to thank Jaguar for sending me a very nice driving jacket, woollen scarf and notebook. I wear the jacket all the time, a really appreciated gift.

This was after some constructive exchanges between JaguarCRC, the dealer and I to resolve an issue. I wouldn't expect to always receive such gifts, but I do have to give Jaguar recognition for their generosity.

Don't know as there was nothing else in the box, just the compliments slip.
