  1. PG63: That's amazing and encouraging that you have done 150000 miles with so little problems. TJM: I have a 90 mile commute on mostly A roads so DPF shouldn't be an issue.
  2. If you use quality diesel like Shell Nitro+ or the BP Ultimate, these both have additives that will help your DPF regenerate more efficiently. You can also buy DPF additive to add to the fuel and if you are really concerned you can buy an ODB interface that will force a regen at the press of a button. Lots of short journey's are the biggest problem for DPF's.
  3. Thanks for the replies, have either of you had the fluid changed in your gearboxes, I don't know if that is part of the jaguar service schedule? I would recommend getting the wheel geometry done as a lot of the tracking systems get the wheels point straight forward but not at the angle so the tyres still wear incorrectly.
  4. I'm seriously thinking of a 3.0d XF as my next car, probably a 2012 - 2013 model. I have done some research and I can only really find the turbo intercooler weld splitting being an issue with the engine, anyone know if the intercooler is the same for the 237bhp and the 275bhp models? I plan to get something with higher mileage any where between 70000miles - 150000miles what should I look out for and what parts are likely to fail between 70000 miles and 250000miles (If anyone on here has got to that sort of mileage)
