    Engine tapping noise

    My advice, for what it's worth, take it to an independent Jaguar specialist for an assessment. Yes it will cost you but at least you'll get an honest opinion. Mike

    E-type cam covers?

    Have you posted this on the e-type forum? They've probably got a better idea

    Whining noise on acceleration

    Hi Paul, In answer to your questions Yes Quite possibly Definitely worth checking because if that's all it is sorting it will save you a small fortune. Mike

    Headlight Bulbs - XF

    Hi Jim, It's fairly straight forward, I did it on my old S-type, you have to drill a hole in the headlamp cover to allow the cables in and out but apart from that it's just a case of plugging the supplied cables together. Cheers Mike

    Running won't help, I think big leather boots and the keys to the Aprilia are a safer bet 🏍️

    If there's a cure for this I don't want it

    Interestingly My V8 S-type was "limited" to 155 but I saw an indicated 165 and it was still accelerating, so who knows?

    Oh for the days when ladies were retiring, or shy, or ladies! Little chance of that in Northamptonshire I'm afraid Cue the feminist onslaught
