  3. I have been researching into the question, "Can vehicles (cars) still pass an MOT Test if their original Halogen Headlights have been upgraded to either HID or LED Bulbs. There seems to be an awful amount of opinion and conjecture on this subject. BUT, as best as I can find in a legal stance, it appears to be that any originally fitted halogen lit headlamp car first registered after 1st of April 1986, would still fail an MOT. As per Special Notice 01:21headlampt conversion. Below are links to : GOV.UK MOT Special Notice 01:21, which attempts to clarify the situation. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/special-notice-01-21-headlamp-conversions/mot-special-notice-01-21-headlamp-conversions A long article by well known bulb supplier ABD , which seems a very comprehensive explanation of the situation. https://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/blog/the-brightest-car-light-bulbs/ Personally I am NOT (and would not) suggesting that they should not be fitted (as that is a right of choice for every individual). However I do have an opinion that the offence is not in using them (as this would be very difficult to establish direct evidence at the roadside) but that the problem will occur when an MOT Tester finds these type of bulbs (again depends on how strict the examination is ). One thing I am sure of however, is that being the owner/user of a Jaguar S Type, it is not going to be easy for an MOT examiner to identify what actual type of bulb is being used by sighting (direct evidence) the bulb without time consuming (due to not easy access) removal of the backing to the headlamp unit. This submission does not take any account of matters such as dazzle to other road users etc., which of course is altogether another discussion. This legality (or not), is in my opinion, up to each and every individual to make their own decision. I have just attempted to provide some information which can be read and digested before making your own decision. Best Wishes and Regards, John

  4. Hello Peter. I'm almost out of this world , the chemo effect is awful, dizzy ,foggy headed and more. I should have included more in my post regarding my and Joan's situation, my fault entirely. Peter, PLEASE,PLEASE, do not feel guilty. Joan had to go into care in November; she's not over the moon about it but some things we cannot change. Due to her I've had a charmed life, Wifey has worshipped the ground I walked on almost from the day I took her home from a dance on my BSA B33 in 1958. She was 16 and one week, we married when she was 20 and one week; a chilly St Patrick's Day. Clearly we are of the same generation, your post uplifted me, thankyou, made me feel we had been friends for years. I could be squeezing 87 in a couple of years. May I wish you and your Lady continued happiness, thank each other for even the little things and keep loving each other, it is worth it's weight in gold. Regards Roger.

  6. Hi all I'm Adam. I Own a 2002 XKR-100 with @39 k miles in Las Vegas, NV. I've madea few upgrades,swaped out the ugly oyster colored montreal bbs 20" for these cuve 20 inch rims, had the mufflers and resonators removed so she's straight piped, other the the collector box and stock cats, have the mina gallery intake replacement kit and their upgraded main supercharger pulley installed, viper 4k performance chip via obd 2 port plugged in and aftermarket led dip and hi beams installed. This is my 2nd jaguar, had a 97 XK8 convertible before and this car is beautiful and like most jags is a love hate relationship. LOVE IT when she is running right but she has had about every problem infamous issue amongst these cars and she's so low mileage wise hope the end of my mechanical woes with her is here soon

  10. Hello, all. Bought my V6 AWD 3.0 Jag in May 2021 - it was love at first sight, literally. I love its understated elegance, combined with the happy fact that it takes off like a rocket when it's required. Love the Meridian sound system, too. Delightful car on multiple levels! I live in Lake Bluff, IL, a far northern suburb of Chicago, right on the shore of Lake Michigan. That's where my Jag is happily perched in the shot below!

  13. Glyn I have an S-Type and have to do exactly the same thing. I do not have a garage and have a wire/lead from the house to the car. The boot lid will shut and I have put some extra tape around the cable from the house in the area that I trap in the boot lid seal. It does no harm to the supply lead. The other thing I have done, because my cable crosses over the path to our front door is purchased a rubber wire concealing strip that has yellow lines on it as a warning. I do not want the postman or anyone else tripping over the supply cable and hurting themselves or "seeing a profitable claim on me." Best wishes and Regards, John

  15. If they are not available (and I have never seen anything to suggest they are), is it possible that the club can look into acquiring some/having some made, for purchase. May be they would need to be paid for (I.E. Ordered) by members wanting them before they are manufactured. Could be that the club might consider asking the question if a source of manufacture could be found. Best Wishes and Regards, John

  17. Max Very annoying and dangerous actions. Perhaps someone (maybe yourself) local to the American bases should report this ongoing occurrence to the authorities. I believe within the perimeters of the actual bases local authorities do not have powers to intervene, however once private vehicles from them bases come onto British roads they have to comply with the law. It may prove provident to inform the Traffic Division of Sussex Constabulary of these incidents and your concerns over safety on the roads at night. Best Wishes and Regards, John

  19. Update: I’m now the proud owner of a 2011 XFS 3.0d PL with dynamic pack. One owner from new with all servicing and repairs carried out by Jaguar, including a new engine in 2016! So a 125k ml car with a 55k mile engine. I’ve had it for 3 days now, the only issue I have had is a one-time red restricted performance message under heavy acceleration. It cleared after a shut down and restart. So today I spent a good amount of time doing laps on the dual carriageway testing the rev range! Message didn’t return, so I’m hoping it was just a sticky valve as I know the car has spent the past 5 months with a car dealer tootling around town off boost. I will keep pressing it for a few days to make sure, as I have 30 days to return to the dealer to resolve if need be. Out of interest, with the new engine installed in 2016, is it likely to have any improved components ? (Eg. Inlet manifolds etc). Thanks

  20. Hi Dos, I hope you can find a good independent dealer to keep your car going. I am sorry about the loss of your wife and I hope you settle in you home OK. I am quite lucky in that my wife is still going well at 80 and I am just thinking how all would be if either one of us loses the other. I am now 87 and still fit [I hope]. Regards, Peter.

  21. Something stirred in the remaining 'grey matter' cell ... Click the 'Cancel' button on the right-hand side of the steering wheel twice. That makes my Oil Level show - but it might not have had the full amount of time to drain down to the correct level so could be a misleading short cut! The Oil Level will also show if you have the bonnet up and click through the trip computer stalk button too. Try the WD40 first. I had a couple of door lock mechanisms replaced, both offside, and lost the 'double beep' the doors locked correctly and the mirrors folded afterwards. It was about £125 each mechanism at Swallows Jaguar.

  22. Hi Basically the camera and parking sensors work as a system and if one bit fails they all down tools, the thought process being it is better to tell you that you are doing things without their help than let you bump into something because one bit was not working and you were relying on a warning that never came 🙂 You need to get the codes read which should identify the problem area. In my case it showed a faulty front parking sensor but it was in fact the front bumper wiring loom feeding that sensor (identified when changing sensor did not fix problem). Good luck

  26. Welcome to everyone, my name is Marlon Gaitán from Nicaragua and I am reviving a Jaguar S-Type 3.0 V6 in 2000, the car starts, runs and all goes well, but there is a problem, the fuel pressure has to go down with it At the same time, when it starts and takes about 20 minutes of work, the pressure starts to go down on the fuel level until it goes out, it is noticed that the pressure starts to go down when the steam purge management valve starts to increase. for example: the valve has 30% and the fuel pressure drops from 50 or 60 psi to 47 psi and the valve reaches 80%, the pressure drops to 25 or 30 psi, the fuel pump also starts to to work with a modulated work cycle of 75% at a time low to 6% and gradually ascend without stopping until 50% and from there on, just speed up completely, I have a code that always appears and is P1237 and revises all wiring and electrical part of the rear module, f box usibles, relay and fuel pump and everything is good, i hope to help me please i need to revive the jaguar and this is the last problem that i could not fix.

  31. Julie Yes the XK was a convertible and was two tone colour ........... red and RUST. It was a real "dog" of a car. Had youth and not much sense on my side . I bought it and ran it for about two weeks and then sold it for a profit of £400, which was a lot of money in them days. The Mk 2 was a much better car in Metallic Dark Blue, Cream leather interior and Chromed Wire Wheels. That lasted a bit longer, If my memory serves me right it was about two months and I had an offer I could not refuse, youth, Dell Boy and the draw of money yet again. Boy do I wish I still had that car. A lot of water under the bridge since then. Happy memories. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Regards, John

  42. 2021 was a year that celebrated the peerless heritage, innovative present and sustainable luxury future of Jaguar; full of exciting new model releases, trailblazing brand partnerships and motorsport victories at the highest level The year began with the first completed F-TYPE Heritage Edition models hitting the road, featuring a specially curated commemorative specification: 1960’s inspired Sherwood Green paintwork and Caraway and Ebony leather interior, the exclusive limited-run Jaguar features unique details inspired by the iconic E-type and celebrates 60 years of sportscar lineage. Shortly after, Jaguar UK welcomed the ‘E-type 60’ collection, inspired by the two E-types that first introduced this legendary sportscar to the world at the Geneva Motor Show: the Opalescent Gunmetal Grey coupé ‘9600 HP’, driven ‘flat out’ by Bob Berry to make the launch itself, and the British Racing Green roadster ’77 RW’, driven by Norman Dewis who was told to ‘drop everything’ to get to Geneva the next day. The E-type 60 Collection cars are sold as a pair. Bringing its story back to the present, Jaguar launched its new Jaguar F-PACE and ‘Hard to Forget’ campaign with DJ and producer MK. MK’s collaboration film was the first in a series from artists and renowned personalities from music and entertainment to photography and fashion. MK provided the soundtrack for, the ‘Hard to Forget’ series with exclusive new track Lies featuring Raphaella, released in January 2021. Hot on the heels of the new, improved F-PACE, Jaguar brought new life to its F-PACE SVR, XF saloon and Sportbrake and E-PACE models giving the full portfolio significant updates both inside and out. Advanced new technologies, sharp styling and new plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid engines were launched. In May, Jaguar continued its mission to nurture creativity and celebrate women in the arts, with a new partnership with the British Film Institute (BFI) and Everyman Cinemas. The partnership officially kicked off with an all-star screening of Billie Piper’s much anticipated directorial debut, Rare Beasts at Everyman Broadgate. Whilst new partnerships were established, old partnerships were renewed and Jaguar revealed in July that it would support The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) for a further five years. As Official Car of The Championships, Wimbledon, Jaguar not only supplied a fleet of vehicles to support event operations but also rolled out initiatives to boost tennis in schools. Jaguar marked the conclusion of National School Sport Week by bringing a taste of the Championships, Wimbledon 2021 to Malmesbury Primary school in Merton, London with a pop-up Centre Court experience featuring Kyle Edmund and Frankie Bridge. July continued to be a busy month as Jaguar headed to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, with stunt driver Terry Grant putting on a show-stopping high-speed, tightly choreographed drive ‘up the hill’ in Jaguar XF, F-PACE and F-TYPE. The Jaguar Vision GT SV concept also made its public debut, representing Jaguar Land Rover’s vision for an electric future. Later that month, Jaguar Formula E driver Sam Bird joined forces with the iconic RAF Falcons parachute display team, who parachuted metres away as Sam Bird took his Jaguar I-TYPE 5 to the track. It was all part of the countdown to Jaguar’s race on home soil at the London e-Prix in July, that saw Jaguar Racing driver, Mitch Evans, secure a home race third-place podium finish. In September, Jaguar UK was back at Goodwood, this time celebrating 60 years of the iconic E-type at Revival with drives in all generations – Series 1, 2 and 3 – charting nearly 15 years of production, and the evolution from six-cylinder to V12. VIP guests also had the chance to experience E-type’s successor, the F-TYPE, and watch race-prepared E-types battle it out on the track. There was also a star appearance at Revival by Jaguar Classic’s C-type Continuation, new metal, built exactly to the specifications of the original 1950’s Le Mans winner. October saw the return of the Attitude Awards, this year hosted by comedian Tom Allen. As part of a broader campaign with Attitude magazine, Jaguar collaborated to create meaningful campaigns that tackle the important issues of diversity and inclusion in its own communities and beyond. November saw the introduction of a new title sponsor of the Jaguar Formula E team, Jaguar TCS (Tata Consultancy Services) Racing. A new livery of the Jaguar I-TYPE 5 race car for the 2022 Formula E season was revealed and Jaguar TCS Racing was given additional prominence within Jaguar Land Rover’s new motorsport division as part of the company’s Reimagine strategy, challenged to ‘Reimagine Racing’ to test, learn, develop, collaborate, and share innovations including cutting-edge electric vehicle technologies. The year concluded with an all- electric roadtrip to Ellenborough Park Hotel in the beautiful Cotswolds. Guests enjoyed drive activities from both sides of the Jaguar Land Rover family, taking the new Defender on a moonlit expedition across its spiritual home, Eastnor Castle.

  43. Thanks Trevor, and to everyone else who has responded with such kind words. We have a 58 kilo dog, so have always needed a large vehicle. My wife has a Citroen C4 Grand Picasso which has been a great car for the dog, and indeed for us too. We are in the process of changing it, and I did look at the Jaguars, but their load height is too high for the dog to jump in and out without long term joint damage, and really there wasn’t enough height for her (the dog, not the wife) to sit up either. They (and the vast majority of other SUVs) were therefore ruled out, and we are buying a Skoda Enyaq - so going all electric. That isn’t anything to do with the reason for selling my XK though: That was purely because it hasn’t been used for the two years since Covid began, and I didn’t foresee that changing any time soon, due to my damaged auto-immune system. It seems that if I get Covid there is a strong possibility that I will die, and that does make me a bit wary of mixing with strangers! That has put paid to the social visits to pubs and restaurants with associated pleasant drives, which was when we went out without the dog, so were able to use the XK. I know that I have done the right thing, but I do miss it like crazy!
