  1. Yes, thanks Trevor. I will get my wife to have a look. It's just not an issue I saw coming having a rack. Remind me of years back with old cars but guess they have come on in design. Yes, 15% could make quite a difference. I see you are in Dorset. I'm in Yeovil but used to live in Dorchester and was born and lived for many year in Poole. If I win the lottery I'll get back to Dorset. x
  2. Hi can anyone recommend a reliable/ safe, and not massively expensive, bicycle rack for the 'bac'k of a mark 2, 2015 XF ? They need to be removable and for 2 bikes. I can't cope with a roof rack in place all the time or really on top, and I hear from my wife you can now get ones that just attach on the back but can be removed quite easily. I can't cope with a permanent roof rack on a Jag (snob) Any ideas, also not to damage paint. Probably only used once or twice a month. Any ideas to resolve this domestic?? I see Halfords have lots thanks Tim
  3. Thanks Pete. Luckily my daughter used to work for Landrover and the friendly colleagues tested the SD card for me and it was broken. This can happen now and again and even they could not update on their equipment . So under warranty a new SD card to come. Thankfully I am not going mad! Thanks
  4. End of March my 'Jaguar InControl Remote' is due to be renewed? As my first Jag XF, is this product really worth having I wonder. I'm not sure I would really use it £76 for two years. Or does it include a tracker that I seem to have read that may be valuable. Any thoughts? thanks, Tim

    SOS! Help Just purchased a 2015 2 litre (mark 2 ) Jag XF. Was learning how to use the Sat Nav system (basic) that seemed to be working just fine (after updating SD card) and exploring the system and the language has changed from English to well German or Polish or something I do not understand !!! I have tried to restore to English that should be simple but despite trying everything I can't get it back. What is the magic button?? Did this with old Mazda and Tom Tom once and simple to change back. I guess this is, if you know how!! Any ideas please before I shoot myself!!
  6. Thanks Colin for extra thoughts. I recall years back having a pretty cheap cover that kept blowing off. But had hoped the more modern costly covers were better but it seems they have risks. I will get the Autoglyn out and keep fit polishing Many thanks, Tim
  7. Thanks Tom, still finding my way round forum. So a cover sounds like a waste and better to use a quality polish perhaps. Oil every 12 months sounds better, 24 just feels too long. Thanks again for advice for a a newbie.

    New car

    Trooper2142 hi, silly question but if buying from a car supermarket I guess these are all fleet cars. Would such only have a 2 yearly service and no real idea of history? They seem to offer the best prices other than a dodgy trader. Just trying to find a reputable source to purchase with pref p,ex?
  9. Thanks, I get what you are saying, just 2017 plate petrol may be too costly. thnks
  10. Thanks gentleman, that is helpful indeed.Leo excuse my ignorance what are def issues? Is that filters? I did here low mileage around only towns may not suit. However fuel economy is worse, do you know what auto petrol versions are best rated? Again I am not interested in high speeds etc.... must be getting old! I can take time for the right car but know little about XF petrols. Any thought...... Also i guess you can get low co2 models? thank you both tim
  11. Hi, I am. Considering purchasing an XF diesel circa year 2016 new design from a car supermarket. I have looked at Car Shop that seem to offer some good prices on cars of this age with a little higher mileage plus part exchange. This would be my first Jaguar. Can members offers any comments if this is a sensible way to purchase at an affordable price? Anybody dealt with Car Shop? Any thoughts welcome. New 2016 models being top of my finances and guess better than late 2015/14. I imagine a car auction when allowed and not trade only would be high risk. Looking at 163/180 models with very low
