  1. Hello, I am curious to know if it would be possible to transplant a J-gate auto'box onto a S3 XJ6/12.

    The S3 auto'box is sturdy and dependable but with only three gears fuel economy is abysmal. 

    Thank you.

  3. As an Indie Jag Specialist we would also suggest Northfield.
  4. We give advice over the phone all the time, recently a call from Australia. I think you will find that most indies will do that. There are obviously times when a diagnosis cannot be done over the phone and it does need to be put on the diagnostic kit to find the correct solution.
  5. For anyone in the Hampshire/Berkshire/Oxfordshire area we run a monthly meeting for the XKEC club at the Hare and Hounds Hotel in Speen nr Newbury. Bath Rd, Speen, Newbury, West Berkshire RG14 1QY It takes place on the last Thursday of every month at 8pm. We are always happy to see Jaguar owners whatever model they have. Everyone is welcome, just ask at the Bar for the rowdy Jaguar lot and they will point you in the right direction. Kevin and Soraya
  6. We are in Andover which isn't far. We have full dealer level diagnostics. The whole team own and drive Jags.
  7. For anyone in South London J&DS Autos 59 Jasmine Grove London SE20 8JY 02087780948
  8. I didn't notice Elite and Performance on the list so indie to indie would recommend them Elite and Performance Units 10& 11 Derby Trading Estate Stores Road Derby DE21 4BE
  9. A bit cheeky but we are designXKR 8 Towergate Business Park Colebrook Way Andover SP10 3BB 01264 333523 We have the full Jaguar Dealer level diagnostic kit
  10. Bob The seats are easy enough to swap over. We have done it many times either changing the very early all in one seats to headrest ones or replacing seats with Recaros. Kevin tried a set of Recaros in our XK and they were just not right for us. Try some breakers i.e Black Country Jaguar, Jagslags or Eurojag to see if they have anything. If they are cheap enough you can get any colour and have them releathered. We have a guy who does all ours for us at around £400 a seat.
  11. The last SatNav disc available is the 2003 update. No further updates are available. A few years ago we tried to get Alpine to produce a more recent update but they refused.
  12. Find your local indie with a Jaguar diagnostic kit and get codes read. If you are in South London I would recommend J&DS Autos in Penge or the Jag Workshop in west London. I know both of them have the proper kit and can give you really good advice on what is happening.
  13. Thanks Trevor I will sort out a list tomorrow and arrange a price for members of the club. Soraya
  14. We are the Arden UK Partner and we have a full list of Arden modifications and prices available. Anyone interested please email us on info@designxkr.co.uk or call us on 01264 333523. Soraya
