  1. Happy Christmas everyone. Safe travels where ever you are. We drove 12hrs non stop to my wife's parents in France at 95mph and the jag didn't put a wheel out of place.
  2. Yes it is. It's usually a 6hr journey on the motorway, French side. The car always runs well and it clears the engine. Normally the car it just used for short trips at home, do the long journey does it some good with the climate control always on and a motorway speed if 80-85 the mpg is 29. Not bad considering the car has just flipped 90k
  3. Another successful trip down to France. The journey down was in pouring rain, but the car took it all in its stride. Thank god a put 4 new tyres on before we left.
  4. Have a great Christmas everyone. Safe driving.
  5. Amazing. Drive to south of France to my wife's parents. Set the cruise control @90 and didn't touch for 5 hours! Apart from the refuel obviously
  6. I've just purchased from eBay a startac phone with the all important Jaguar software. With a new SIM card it completes the interior nicely. I couldn't be happier!!
  7. Finally had the condenser and low pressure pipe replaced on the aircon. Now when you turn on the climate system it's freezing! Just in time for our trip down to the south of France later this month.
  8. Does anyone know where the headlight sensor is located in the car? I believe its by the immobiliser light on the dash, but I've also been told its in the back of the rear view mirror. Also can you adjust it? Thanks David
  9. That's it, I'm polishing the bodywork and putting leather cream on the seats this morning.
  10. We drive down to Bressuire at least 3 times a year. Just set the cruise control and relax on the French auto routes.
  11. Does the use of a Green Cotton or K&N replacement air filter element make any difference to the performace of the car over the standard filter?
  12. I wish I could! The MG used to fit, but there's no way you can shoehorn the jag into my garage, it's just not wide enough!!
  13. I had to wait until I was 45, but yes the wait was worth it. Mine is Carnival red with 18" seven spoke wheels. I spent some money having them professionally restored back to looking like new, and now they set the car off a treat.
  14. Yes I know that feeling. My wife is French and her parents live near Angers, a 5 hour drive French side. We used to do this in her 98 Twingo, fine but back breaking. Now in the Jag it's effortless, knocks an hour off the journey and you feel as refreshed as the moment you stepped into the car.
  15. I love my 2001 3.0 S Type sport! I know the main reason for these forums is to find answers to problems. But let's not focus on the negatives. Stand up and be proud. So who else loves their Jag???
