  1. Well guys I’ve now had the car for a couple of weeks now and I have to say I’m like a big kid haven’t really had a chance to really push it but it’s gentle round town and fun on the kickdown in sport fuel economy is not as bad as I expected but then again not too bothered as it’s for weekend so on the whole so far so good and enjoying it a hell of a lot
  2. Hi guys Looking for info on how to connect my iPhone to play songs from my Amazon music think I need a cable 20 pin to connect to the phone but don’t know what it’s called part number etc Is this cable what I need as via usb it doesn’t dock going to also try the usb drive idea I’ve heard didnt think on this before 😂😂
  3. Hi guys well got it this morning seen for the first time and got to say wasn’t disappointed. still trying to wipe the stupid grin off my face 😎 obviously can’t really go anywhere but got a chance or 3 to put the foot down a bit kids loved it 😂😂 To be fair to the dealer the car was in top condition when I collected it . haven’t had much chance to look it over properly but on first glance it’s sexy as feck looking forward to the weekend though
  4. Got a mate in car trade looking for a spare for me reckons no trouble at all to get one anyway guys ... deal is done got all the discount am likely to get car is delivered on Tuesday looking forward but feel like it’s going to be a long weekend... mmm ... can’t think why
  5. hi taurian yes it is and not happy at all. should have been told this from the start anyways going to look on eBay scrap yards for another key and have it reprogrammed as apparently that is an option ?? Hi lads yep not getting it till end of the month. trying to not look at pics until closer to the time but ... there may be a chance that I get it delivered for free due to the restrictions coming into force. will hear tomorrow from both the mechanic from click mechanic and the dealer. has anyone else ever used click mechanic ? £112 for the premium pre purchase check which I thought was good value considering I cannot get to physically see the car. hoping it gives me a bit of peace of mind anyway. will keep you guys posted Thanks taurian Price is agreed in principle that a couple of items are sorted satisfactory so I have a window price of £8950 with so far a discount of 250 off that with full tank waiting as heading for Scotland ASAP 12 month MOT 6 Month warranty full service history personally think any car should come with the above as per anyway Will defo be pushing when I get down for something else off cheers mate

  10. Think I’m just getting old and cynical not to mention jittery 😀😀 as everyone else does when buying a car but I am looking forward to driving home in it and getting to know it better
  11. Hi I have not long joined the site guys don’t know why really as I’ve had an x type for years. I know some will argue it’s not really a jag or whatever but it was mine and bought it in 2006 on a 04 plate it has lasted till now with few issues so maybe I’ve been lucky anyway I am about to buy a 10 plate XF S 3.0 PREMIUM LUXURY at end of month and wondered if anyone has had similar buying experience, I haven’t bought a car in 14 yrs btw. I am from Lanarkshire and the cars I seemed to like are in England in particular for this one Wakefield. I have been chasing down different cars for appx 2 mth and each one is gone ?? now I’m 52 but I was always conscious of the bargain and getting a few quid off the window as dealers wanted to deal but it seems nowadays that the search engines take the fun out of the deal as the dealers are all saying the cars are priced to sell no discounts etc some of the delivery prices are ridiculously expensive if the dealer is even willing to do that has this been a similar thing for others lately I think I have a reasonable deal but not a great on but at least the dealer is reputable so that’s something
  12. Very nice I will post pics as soon as I see it first 😀😀
  13. Hi taurian as I said . it’s been a long time since I last bought a car but always was before that looking to get a good deal and mostly did but apparently the search engines are what drives the prices , give or take a couple of quid .. as you see the search engine tells whether it’s a good price already or not Also I have indeed travelled but again it is a reputable dealer guy salmon and they have sent me videos and pictures etc but yes I do miss the interaction with the car at first sight as I think it is either for you or not in appx 5 mins of seeing it I am carrying out a pre purchase inspection regardless appx £150 so that should give me some piece of mind Any advice on getting more than 250 off the window price would be good though cheers steven
  14. Thank Jon got a grin on me even now 😀
