  1. Hi Rich, I just had my gearbox oil changed at 68K, it is recommended to do this at the 65-100K mark, mine didn't really need it either, it was more of a preventative measure. I actually called and spoke with a ZF engineer as some people were suggesting it was best to flush and replace the oil but the ZF engineer said they don't advise to flush as this can loosen some debris and cause problems, it's best just to drain and replace the oil but he did say it is important to change the oil and not sealed for life. I had mine done by E&E in Milton Keynes, if I remember correctly it was about £450. Hope this helps, Dom
  2. Hi Jason, I just changed the battery on my Sportbrake and it seemed bone dry but I have heard of this on the other forum, do a search on jaginfo and you should find some threads on this. Best wishes, Dom
  3. Indeed, in the boot under the floor there is a yellow stick, poke this down your filler hole and it will reset the yellow flap. I had the exact same issue when I bought mine. As for mirrors, as James mentioned, firstly check the settings in the system, there is an "Auto fold" option. For the locks, this is a little more difficult to diagnose, it could be a sign that the battery is getting low and needs replacing, odd things happen when the battery starts to get low, the other thing is that the actuators on the door lock are known to be problematic, I am having an issue currently with both the front passenger door and rear drivers side doors, I will be taking it to the dealers to fix as I still have a warranty, if you bought it from a dealer then they should rectify all your issues. If not then seek out a good Jag indy in your area, the one I use and comes highly recommended might be a little far for you in Milton Keynes, it's a 70 mile drive for me but well worth it, they are called E & E. Welcome to the SportBrake family. Dom
  4. Hi Allan, I use the Wynns Gold Diesel treatment (from Halfrauds), I add it roughly every 4 fills, I use Shell V Power and have never had and DPF or EGR issues in 40'000 miles, my car purrs smoothly and cleanly. Just my 2 penneth. Dom

    Only when the ignition is on, I use mine for my dashcam, a couple of minutes after I turn the engine off the dashcam will go off. Dom
  6. Update* So I took it into the dealers, it turned out it was the wiring loom but not at the boot, it was the loom in the front bumper, it had moved and then proceeded to rub through a couple of wires. All fixed now, they did try to blame it on a pheasant strike (there were still feathers inside my grill lol) but I told them the strike was long after the camera issue started. I went the last 5 weeks without a reversing camera at all, now I find myself forgetting to look at the screen and just using the mirrors lol. Anyway, all sorted on warranty, so no cost to me. Dom
  7. Hi Ian, I just had my Sportbrake at the dealers for a faulty wiring loom, meaning the sensors and rear camera were out, all fixed now but the loan car they gave me was a 2018 Sporbrake R Sport. I can honestly say that our version is nicer, I'm not saying it wasn't nice but it just wasn't as nice as mine, our version feels more refined, I think when it comes time to trade in I will go for an XJ or I-Pace. Which model do you have? Mine is Portfolio spec, in Saphire Black and I had it re-mapped so now 250bhp, 2.2ltr. Enjoy. Dom
  8. Hi Ian, No, unlike the front washers, the screen wash comes from a nozzle under the roof spoiler, not from the wiper arm. Dom
  9. Morning All, I have been having an intermittent issue with my camera and sensors, however, for the last 3 days it has been permanent. I get the dreaded "Cameras Unavailable, please contact the dealer", it first happened over Xmas, intermittently for a couple of days, then it was fine for a few weeks, then not, then fine, when this happens not only is there no reversing camera but all the sensors don't work, front and back. I contacted the dealership and have it booked in for Mid March, this was the earliest slot where they have a loaner available while it's being checked. From my googling, this fault, whilst not the most common it isn't uncommon either. I will update again after I get it back in mid March. Thanks, Dom
  10. Sorry John, Brain f*rt, indeed I meant E&E. Dom
  11. Hi Tim, Me again, I should add, I have the 2.2 200BHP, I have done about 30'000 miles since Nov 2017 when i got it and never had any DPF issues at all. I use Shell V-Power and every 3 fills or so I add a bottle of Wynn's Gold treatment to the tank. Prevention is better than a cure and the cost of using a premium fuel and 2 bottles of snake oil a month is minimal when looking at refurbing or replacing a DPF. Dom
  12. Thanks Tim, I will bear him in mind for emergencies, I just had my B service at M&K in Sep, it was £257 (if I remember correctly) all in. M&K are Jag specialists and use all genuine Jag parts, they are good guys and really know what they are doing, they seem to get really good reports on here and other Jag forums. I prefer them to the dealership as at a dealership there is only 1 master technician and a few apprentices and the vast majority of the work isn't done by the master, M&K have at least a couple of highly qualified, ex Jag dealership guys, that incidentally also have BMW qualifications (I saw the certs on the wall). I much prefer to have enthusiastic specialist look after my cat. If you don't mind the drive I can personally highly recommend them, they don't do unnecessary things but do check everything, after my service they advised me that the bushes on my front suspension banana arms were wearing out and explained that they could tell by slightly more wear on the insides of my front tyres, when I get round to it it will be £250 and 4 hrs work, they also provide a courtesy car (x-type) if you give them enough notice, they didn't pressure me to do it and just advised me to keep an eye on it. My brake pads were also getting thin, again they didn't pressure me to change them, I ran them until almost finished then bought some Brembo pads and got John at Dorking Tyres to fit them for me, nice guy, also a Jag enthusiast, has Jags himself and is currently restoring an E-Type, he only charges £10 a corner to change tyres. Give M&K a call and see what they say about your situation. Good luck and I will keep my eye out for a flashing cat. Dom
  13. Hi Tim, Thanks for the thorough follow up and update, however, I am particularly interested to know who this Jag specialist is in Leatherhead, I live in Dorking and currently travel all the way up to Milton Keynes due to the reputation of M&K there. How good is the place in Leatherhead and who are they? Thanks in advance, Dom P.S Feel free to flash me if you see me around, I am in a 62 plate XF Sportbrake in Saphire Black (it looks black until the sun shines on it) with black wheels
  14. Thanks again Trevor, A little googling and I found these, should be a better fit I reckon; Dom
