  1. Sorry, in frustration I abandoned the project and deleted the e mail. I have used Google Maps with a magnetic clip for a phone. Much better than the inbuilt sat nav but a shame. Jaguar really need to improve their communication and customer service that is well below standard.
  2. Thanks John, I think you are correct. x
  3. Hi - I have a late 2015 XF and have received an e mail from Jaguar very recently saying new updates are available for Europe and incl Russia! The customer service as often are rubbish and only seem interested in warranty cars and seem to have no knowledge. Take it to your dealer! So I do that which is not local and pay them plus for updates. What should have been a simple download was not possible to do via SD card via computer.The whole Jaguar website could be far easier and I use many. The system is not the best anyway but I only want UK updates. Any comments on this please? I'm not sure if you can just select UK and any idea how much these updates cost? cheers
  4. My late 2015, so 2016 spec, has just done the same but runs fine but the noise irritates. Despite checking, I can't seem to find the cause.
  5. Thanks Trevor No so worried about the voucher just if it is beneficial Happy Christmas
  6. Hi, just got my new coded Halfords discount card through along with a £10 off a Terraclean service. I am not familiar with this process but assume if its come from the club it's ok. Can anybody comment on this please. I have a late 2015 (2016 spec) XF , 2 litre diesel with about 53K on the clock. It is not hammered and looked after well. I wonder would such a clean be good as a preventative treatment and what sort of service as several options, or is best left well alone as I hear such things can make things better or much worse. So I am confused Cheers Tim
  7. Trevor,, Tim Cook here. Re me having two e mails, the correct one is Timcook9@icloud.com for premium membership. I think due to problem with this I used a G mail acc Hope thats ok Tim
  8. Actually I did not renew and after looking into it, I have to say it seemed like an expensive gimmick. One point, you can only have the factory setting or choices when the car is new. So you cannot add parts on 'In Control'. That also seems a bit daft and limiting.
  9. Hi, after cleaning my XF, I have noticed near the rear wheel arch there is an area of about 4cm x 4 cm, that seems to have a little pitting or some very small marks I can't remove. It's a small area but too big for touch up paint perhaps? so I was think of a spray can. It's just small and annoying. Any ideas and esp of a good company to get paints from. I want to try and avoid a bodge on otherwise great paint work! Many thanks Tim
  10. Hi, can somebody put my mind at rest please? I just suddenly thought I had not see the wheelnuts on my XF. On checking all I could see was 1 nut in the middle compartment. Is that correct and it works for all 4 wheels? Just getting paranoid in case I need a tyre change. thanks
  11. Just to say I went to use my club/Halfords discount card recently and the chap on the check out could not process it. I then said get the manager who also had a hard job doing so. In the end they got it working but it took about 15 mins. I am told they have few Jags in Yeovil come in. So be warned you may have to be persistent.
  12. Hi,I'm concerned about the dramatic rise of theft of catalytic converters. Have any of you had fixings or cages to protect your cars catalytic converter please? I have recently bought a 2016 XF saloon 2.2 diesel and looking for a cost effective way of protecting the catalytic converter -any information will most appreciated please? I actually don't know it is on my car -anyone know please? Many Thanks Tim
  13. Hi everyone, I am concerned about the dramatic rise again in thefts of C converters. I've not heard of Jaguar cars especially, but I would like to consider having my XF fitted with a low cost and effective deterrent. Any ideas what is good and not too dear to fit? Also, is it better to park engine against fence of, back of car to help deter? I'm not quite sure how that works on a gravel front drive. Ideas anyone ?
  14. Yes Trevor, used to own a Bristol double decker bus and 2 x Morris Oxfords in Dorset days. I'm aiming to get back or at least escape Yeovil perhaps. Not, that its a terrible town and it's a nice county Somerset but not home.
