    Evenin' all.

    Cheers, Steve. I'll certainly take Carole's advice. As you say, it's something you ignore at your own risk and I'm not sure I'm ready to find my tyres slashed and rude pictures crudely painted on my bonnet with brake fluid just yet! I called the local dealer yesterday morning. They did seem quite helpful but suggested I give a call back on Monday as they were very busy due to staff holidays. They seemed to indicate that it probably would be something they could do for me over the phone, given an hour or so...so fingers crossed. I didn't realise that Jag ownership would result in such expenditure in amassing an eclectic collection of suitable head attire. :-( I'll have to look for a Borsalino Fedora next week, as my wife has decided that my current Foster Grant's are entirely unsuitable and that only "His n Hers" Ray Bans are anywhere near acceptable. All very well and good, but her insisting I wear a 3 piece suit to check the tyre pressures in this weather I think is a little OTT. :-)

    Thanks, Bernard. I did try this, but it didn't work. I've since been told that this trick only works on units up until 2007, so I'm just a bit too late. I'll call my local jag dealer tomorrow and plead poverty. Hopefully they'll take pity on me.... :-) Thanks for the tip, though.

    Message Centre Difficult to Read

    The message centre is not the biggest and boldest, I agree. I have the same problem, as I need specs for reading but not for driving. If I get a message, I have to pop me specs on at the next stop!

    Thanks, Carole! I'll give that a go. The silence inside is deafening. :-) I'll also take your advice and get a trilby, as I keep knocking my top hat off when getting in! Many thanks!

    Good evening all. Just bought my first Jag on Tuesday. It's a lovely 2007 S type 2.7D with full service history and has obviously been very well looked after previously. It's a bit of a change from my 2.6 Vectra GSI, but the wife has decided that my days of wearing my baseball cap backwards are over and at my age I should now be driving a proper grown ups car. I have all the service history, all the manuals and most of the garage receipts from new, however the one thing that's missing is the radio code card. And the dealer had disconnected the battery, of course.... I'm pretty sure it's the original unit as there is no mention in the documentation to say that it has ever been replaced. I have been told that I can obtain it on line, but would need to remove the unit to obtain the serial number. I don't really want to do that as I'm not confident in removing the trim etc without breaking things. I have also been told that if I take the V5 and extra ID to a Jaguar dealer, they will be able to obtain the code for me. does anybody know if that is the case? Cheers.
