Enter your VIN on Jaguar Topix.
(or PM your reg to me and I can lookup the VIN and car spec and reply to you privately).

Am I right in saying the 163bhp has no exhaust tailpipe sticking out but the 180bhp has a twin outlet on the LHS?

Or doesn’t your V5 give a power output ?

180 has twin exhaust on left. 163 has one exhaust pipe.

I'm not sure the source of data for insurance companies, but I do question the accuracy. When I took out insurance with Jaguar for my RWD XE, the insurance company were adamant that the car was AWD. Eventually got it changed, so no long term problem. My point is mistakes do happen and it's good that you're questioning everything.

I regularly get my car rated 163 BHP on various sites and it is most definitely 180.

Try the UK car tax check site as this should have information from the V5.
