Hello everybody!

I have just joined so thought it sensible to say hello.

I have always wanted a Jaguar X Type and so I finally got one at the beginning of July, selling my fragile Freelander.

I have a 2003 2.1 V6 in lovely BRG with only 55k miles on the clock that I got for £2k and I have to say it is everything I hoped it would be.

I gave it a service myself after I got it home, in which I replaced the rear lower arms as the had much play - I also replaced the rear ARB's. I have done a few thousand miles in it and it is running brilliantly.

It does have a kind of whining noise which I think is from the rear of the car but it is hard to tell so I'd be very grateful if anyone can give me some pointers to look at?

It doesnt spoil my Jag though and I'm really glad I got it!

I had to change the parking sensor speaker and was told to remove the rear parcel shelf - being curious I removed the speaker box from under the shelf and was able to replace the speaker from underneath, including keeping and re using the rivets. I guess everyone on here will already know that this can be done but thought I'd share it as a way of trying to contribute!

Regards to all
