  1. Hi all, I have seen a Jaguar owners club metal badge for the front grill on gumtree. Just asking if these are still around to buy?

  2. 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.

  4. 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!

  6. If you have no warnings on the dash and the car is running correctly then putting it on a diagnostic machine is pointless. Simply maintain the car correctly and enjoy.

  7. I would probably not fix something that isn't broken However, it may be worth acquiring a scan tool as these are invaluable at the first sign of any issues There are some quite cheap ones out there but if you want something that will really do the job then I can recommend iCarSoft scan tools, relatively cheap and really functional

  8. I believe that if it were enquired into on the grounds of an acceptable plastic badge of some description that members would probably be prepared to commit to and or pay for the badges production up front of delivery. May be you should organise a poll or similar into the subject. Best Wishes and Regards, John

  9. 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

  11. Hi Mark, I have never seen a metal badge, may be Admin can tell us. I have seen advertised on ebay an American badge - Jaguar Owners Club was it one of those possibly on Gum Tree? Kind Regards, Julie.

  12. 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

  13. HI Julie Thank you very much for your quick response this indeed the part I needed. Sadly Jaguar do not sell just the spring clip that I needed on the end of one of the hoses. I purchased and fitted the entire unit as pictured above from MOSS yesterday and all hopefully now is ok Thanks again very helpful.

  17. Hi Aubrey, thank you for the reply the car was a private sale i live in South Wales near Cardiff. I will check for water in the boot, failing that I will get it to the garage to get a diagnosis. Been doing some digging on the Internet and others causes are the Dab and Bluetooth modules under the passenger seat failing and knocking out the fiber optic chain.

  18. 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

  19. 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

  21. 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.
