  1. I feel that I have been lucky with my ownership of a 2.7 S Type 2007 auto since 2009 when it was 2 years old. My visits to this forum for advice re car troubles has become more regular over the last 3 years and I have now arrived at the junction where a decision has to be made. I have spent over £1200 on my S Type 2.7 over the last 2 years and have MOT advisories for next year that would mean a few hundred more. It is time to part company. I simply don't like the XF or XE as much as the S Type and as it was the looks and driveability of my S Type that brought me to Jaguar in the first place, I have therefore reluctantly decided to move away from Jaguar altogether for my next vehicle. I am very thankful to all members who have contributed towards my online ramblings whilst trying to keep my S Type running. The membership of this club has been very helpful. These forums almost always have the answer if you search long enough. I wish everyone continued good motoring

  2. 2005 (Facelift model) JAGUAR S-Type SPORT. 2.5 V6 Petrol. First Registered: 09.09.2025. Purchased this extremely good looking and well presented car April 2021 at 60,00 miles. It has now completed 67,000 miles. Since my ownership it has been service annually (approx. 4000 miles per year.) On purchase the car was supplied with a good service history record, was re MOT`d, at my request and was subjected to Gear box Service (Oil and Filter) and NEW 95 Amp/Hr Battery fitted. Is fitted with CTEK monitor and quick plug in adapter in the boot area, (this saves having to connect each time to the battery see photos) . The car is now on a personal registration plate, which will be sold with the car. The model, being a Champagne Metallic Colour (Paint Code MDZ) and a SPORT model, is a somewhat rare car. SPORT model defines that there is no wood veneer on the interior and is fitted with Carbon Fibre type finish panels, along with Two Tone Grey Leather seating and panelling. I would not attempt to suggest that the car is “Pristine”, but it is however in extremely good, eye catching condition, with a few very small blemishes form stone chips etc, etc. These are not distracting from the overall condition and presentation of the car. The car drives and rides beautifully smooth and everything of original fitment to the car works as it should do. All Electric Windows, Navigation, CD and Six Stack Player, Air Conditioning, Stereo Radio, Alloy Wheels etc., etc. All original Jaguar Documentation is with the car. There is a fully detailed (and invoices) service/repair history supplied which has been collated by myself, since owning the car.

  3. Hi connect it directly to the battery, make sure it has a inline fuse on the positive as close to the battery as possible then just have the plug in the boot where its easy to access I have the genuine jaguar ctek in mine, that cam with a proper socket thats mounted in the boot side carpet, so you just open the boot and plug the charger in, the boot can be closed while its on charge, the boot seal wont damage the cable, but make sure the battery vent pipe is still fitted, some people dont bother with the vent pipe on the battery, but it vent dangerous explosive gases out of the car, not trapped in the boot cheers Joe

  4. The pillar job is quite easy and can be completed by any competent DIYer. The roof lining is a bit more tricky but again can be done by any competent home mechanic. As previously mentioned YouTube is a good place to start. There are companies on eBay who sell everything required to do this. Make sure you get the correct colour match if you only do the pillars.

  6. Victor Sorry to hear about the problems with buying a car. You do not actually state that you bought the cat from a retail dealer, but It is a reasonable assumption that you did. Be careful if you did not and bought it privately, as different laws apply. Also even if bought from a dealer, please be certain that you did not agree to any disclaimers, rules, etc etc, imposed by the seller in writing. Many dealers do actually supply "Trade Deal " cars, which may be applicable to constrained rules, etc, etc. If bought from a retail dealer, then as previously quoted, "Get it back to the dealer/seller asap and insist that it is put right or your money is refunded in full. Good Luck and Best Wishes, Regards, John

  7. Hi Phil, welcome to the Jaguar Owners Club. Yes the above is true, I had similar problem. I got advice from RAC legal. sent email stating this and quoting the law. Surprising how quickly their attitude changed! They must fix it do it asap. Kind Regards, Julie.

  19. Jaguars are prone to batteries discharging if left for any length o time , possibly parasitic discharge. S-Type appear to be particularly prone to the problem. My S-Types keeps well by using a CTEK MS 7 charger / re-conditioner at least once a week and for a minimum of 12 hours. Best Wishes and Regards, John

  21. Joe No never sold it, seems nobody wanted to buy it. Still sat in a corner of the dinning room. I could never figure out how the hell to use it, so bought an iCarsoft PRO, of which I am nowhere near at a level of learner in understanding how to use it. Cheers, John

  23. Hi Philip, Speedos are designed to "fail safe" by which I mean that when a speedo indicates 70mph, it is either accurate or is over indicating, ie the true speed might be 68mph. This is why claiming your speedo was inaccurate doesn't cut much ice as an excuse for speeding. However, yours does seem to be more inaccurate than I would expect. Do you know if the original size tyres are fitted? If not and if not re-calibrated with SDD your speedo / mileage will be off kilter because speed / distance is calculated assuming a specific rolling circumference for the wheels. Having seen your post, I checked mine this morning and found that the speedo was less than 2mph different to my GPS speed.

  24. Hi Phillip, An old conundrum I've struggled with for ages (even with an early TomTom)! I'd love to believe the SatNav, because I would guess that the speedo overestimates by a bit (two reasons: makes the car look faster, might also save you points). Just had to do a speed awareness waste of time (AKA Speed Awareness Course, of course!) for being flashed at 45 in a 40 limit in the middle of Wales, returning from an Irish ferry. It was 02:00am. How P'd O was I? Enormously!!! They're out to get ya, just play safe!!! J

  36. HI As above really, would get a 4 wheel alignment done, which will hightlight any issues and hopefully sort it might be also worthwhile getting it plugged in to Jaguar SDD, To check the active damping is working correct, which can make a massive difference cheers Joe

  41. Hi I have a 2008 2.7 Diesel XF, last year I had the stage one remapping done, the car was definitely smoother, more responsive and about a 15% better economy on the OPEN road, is traffic the consumption has not really changed, so far absolutely no issues, still very happy I did it. I am in South Africa so unfortunately I can’t recommend the guys who did it for me. Good luck

  42. Carl That would apply to me as well. I am reluctant to invest money in changing the mapping of my S-Type on the grounds of interfering with what was original mapping by Jaguar for the best overall result. When younger and power/performance was the objective with my Nissan SX 200`s and Skylines I was always keen to explore mapping etc. It has to be said though, these CA18`s, RB25`s, SR20`s were a different breed of engine strong Japanese engines that were nowhere near as fickle as the breed of electronic controlled engines of nowadays. Best Wishes and Regards, John

  43. You will need to get the fault codes read If you don’t have a code reader yourself, go to an independent garage to get them read. This will be a lot cheaper Otherwise it’s just guesswork

  44. Hi everyone. I'm here with a view to selling my father's XF. He's 87 and his Jag has mainly sat in his garage for the last 12 years. He was happy just owning it for the most part! He's now deaf as a post and never drives it at all, so I'm selling it on his behalf. It is, as you would expect, absolutely immaculate. Anyone who may be interested, feel free to email me initially. bill_woodhead@hotmail.com.

  45. If you have one of these nearby worth a punt Pirelli Performance Centre They wont fix the suspension issue (i dont think), but can hopefully tell you what the issue is, and if no issue should sort out wheel alignment.

  47. I went from a pre facelift (2008) to a 2013 S and it has proven to be a total success. It has been a completely reliable beast although I do tend to look after it a little more than the service schedule suggests 😉 The extra performance is... noticeable 😉 although it goes even better with the remap. The 8 speed transmission upgrade is a gem. Gear changes are seamless and almost unnoticeable in use whether gently trundling around or making use of the sport mode, chequered flag and flappy paddles in a more spirited drive. The brakes are perfectly capable regardless of the way I feel like driving although I did change them for Brembo disks and pads all round, my own preference, not that I had any concerns with the OEM. Fuel consumption averages 40 to 45 MPG on a diet of 10 miles to work and back again with occasional forays at the weekend. I had the belts done and the transmission serviced as soon as I bought it by my techie who is an ex JLR techie who now works as a mobile independent. Meridian audio is superb for my type of music and all the tech toys work perefectly and reliably. I thought the earlier car was great but the facelift is a country mile ahead. The only non-routine expense has been the ubiquitous boot lid cable loom.

  48. I believe (but may be wrong about this) that the facelifted 3.0 V6 (S and non-S) took a couple of years to gain the 8-speed gearbox, and retained the 6? I'm but a lowly 2.2 owner, and my 2012 car has the 8-speed, but I think the manual notes the 2.2 had the 8 speed and the 3.0 had the 6 speed at the time of building.

  49. Hi, I can only comment on the facelift S, I am on my second. I just love them, good MPG I'm showing low 40's on the trip, but rarely drive in sports mode. Bags of power, so much I decided against the map I had looked up before buying second S. My favourite thing is the 8 speed box, it's so smooth. Personally if driven by cost, I would plump for a higher mileage facelift S as long as it has had the belts done. They look way better IMO and think they got the 8 speed rather than six speed box. Hope this helps.
