Hi. New member intro. So I'm a bit of a petrol head and have recently been struggling to decide what should be my next car. I've looked at the new Honda civic type r gt. I've looked at a few Tvrs. I've looked at Porsche 911s, caymans. Then someone suggested a Jaguar XKR. Mmm I'd always had the impression that Jags were poorly built, unreliable and costly to run. Anyway I've done lots of reading and researching and came to the opinion that in fact the XKR is rather like a unsung hero. Just quietly working in the background, only appreciated by those that actually own one. I went to test drive one today. A 2009, 5.0 litre supercharged V8. Kayanite blue, R dynamic trim. I was just blown away. The looks, the equipment, and that amazing block under the hood. Wow! Now, I'm hard of hearing, but when the sales guy put it in sport mode and I pressed the throttle, I heard that intoxicating growl. My god, I gotta have me one of these. So tomorrow I'm picking this car up. Just 29000 miles on the clock. Jaguar service history and a recent health check by jaguar. Not sure I'm going to be able to sleep tonight. I'll drop some pics tomorrow If I can prise myself out of it lol
Hi my screen has stopped working, all I get is the jaguar symbol blinking on and off intermittently and now have no radio, no proximity sensors, no reversing camera and no USB power, I tried to remove the disc in the boot and when I press the eject button nothing happens, maybe no power to that as well? BTW the car is a 2011 XF-S
Thinking maybe a battery disconnect and leave for twenty minutes and reconnect? I dont know how I should do this and concerned that I may lose more electrics, can anyone help?
Many thanks in advance
Hi Joe, good of you to reply, I take my car into Inchcape Norwich tomorrow so will seek advice and report back as promised. However, they’ve got the car until Friday to sort out my satnav problem out (previous post)
