Newbie X-Type


Recommended Posts


Picked up the X-Type Estate 2.5 SE last weekend, never had a Jag before, needed an estate fancied something smooth, comfortable with some poke and some character so an X fitted the bill. 

I spent ages waiting for the right one to come along and here it is. 

It seems to have all the usual bits wrong with it, all minor, sun visors, parking sensors not working - controller very wet, spare wheel well was actually a well, rear glass not opening, flappy fabric on A pillars. 

But the spec was almost spot on, all the oily bits are good, drives spot on. And I'll enjoy fixing all the minor bits. 

This site has been a great help so far so i thought I'd register, say hi and thanks for the help. Ive also spent a lot of time on eBay but I dont know where to say hi and thanks on there!

Welcome to the Club, Jim.


The 2.5 V6 is a very good engine, quite agile, and relatively economic on long runs.


Let us know how you get on fixing the "minor bits".


Sharing experiences is what the club is about, and there are quite a few members who do the work themselves, which is of great help to others.
