XE R-Sport 2.0 180 Glacier White

Post by dd_lewis » Wed Jun 13, 2018 12:27 pm

Hi All,

This is my first post on the forum, however I’ve been lurking around a little while, and it’s mainly thanks to this forum that I decided to purchase the Jag! :D

I picked up my new car from a Jaguar specialist last Friday and I am totally besotted with it! It’s the 2.0 180bhp R-Sport in Glacier white, with 19inch Venom alloys!

I’m unfortunately one of those people that just cannot leave a car standard, however I only plan to make a few subtle changes to personalise the car a little. ;)

As soon as I got the car home from Devon, I removed the rear badges, and smoked the rear lights. I didn’t want too dark a smoke, but they are SO bright as standard so I used a very light smoke tinting film to tone them down a little!

Really looking forward to joining the forum properly and getting to know you all a little better!

Love both the exterior and the interior of this car. So classy and nice. The glacier white really suits it!

Thanks Oselli!

The colour is my absolute favourite! In some lights it’s a very glossy white, and in other lights it’s more like a flat grey!

Hi

The black exhaust tail pipes that are sold by llowen on this forum are another thing you could buy. See pictures and prices etc. In items for sale

I have them on my glacier white XE r-sport and they look great.

The black wheels would have finished the look off, just a suggestion maybe you could get yours refinished

25mm spacers fitted to the rear today! I’m really happy with how they look! I probably could have gone with 20mm, but these have filled the arches nicely! Just need to hope there’s no rubbing now once the car is full 😁

Had a new exhaust installed today to replace the standard twin exhaust. The car is a 2.0 diesel so I left the silencer and DPF box in and just had the backbox removed!

I’m really pleased with the result, it looks quite subtle! There isn’t much difference in sound when idling, but it does far deeper/nicer when you put your foot down 😊

Interesting to see the hub spacers on the rear wheeels. As you say 20 mm may have been better but can't see much wrong with the 25 all said and done. Out if interest where did you buy them from, they appear to be well made units. Also do you hve any intentions to space the fronts as well?

Just for your info I have deleted the topic you started for the exhaust mod as you have also posted the same here.
