  1. Welcome to the club, Kevin. You have a nice well kept car -- I think the s type is a future classic, -- I certainly enjoy my humble diesel which has all the Grace, Space and Pace that Bill Lyons said. Regards, Peter.
  2. Hi Michael, About 15 years ago I bought quite a good high pressure wash, mainly to clean the patio and conservatory roof. In the instructions it mention that you should never us a high pressure washer on a car, and especially not on a convertible. Not using such a washer is really the solution. Regards, Peter.
  3. Hi Ian and Lynette, I had an x type, 2.5 AWD petrol on a 2005 plate, and found it very quick and a great road holder with all the quality you expect from a Jaguar. I will look out for you when I am holidaying in Lancashire - The Trough of Bowland is one of the most beautiful areas in the UK. The club is a very friendly one and any information you need will be readily available. Regards, Peter. Lancastrian in exile.
  4. Hi Jane, and welcome to the club. That's a bit strange. You seem to have done all, particularly having the diagnostics done at Jaguar, who should have resolved it. Which main dealer was it? Regards, Peter.
  5. Hi Alexander, Halfords will have it in stock. You will also find it in most Auto Accessories shop. Regards, Peter.
  6. Hi Alexander, I would be inclined to try an additive which could assist the injectors to clean up a bit. I use a Millers ECO plus for my diesel engine and it seems to work OK. They do have a petrol version. I would also try premium fuel now and then. Let us know how you get on, Regards Peter.
  7. Welcome to the club, James. The early XF is the successor of the S Type and the design, while different from the s type still retains the look of that model. I think you will enjoy the Jaguar experience. Regards, Peter.
  8. Hi Alex and welcome to the club. It sound like a fuel problem without knowing what model your x type is. There are many x type owner who could assist, but you really need to indicate the model as there are many diverse x type models. Regards, Peter.
  9. Hi Kris and welcome to the club. I have looked up this car on the free app Vehicle Smart which shows quite a lot of MOT fails mostly because of suspension issues and some headlamp problems. There are also been tyre issues which could indicate faulty wheel settings. The car is currently untaxed. It is worth downloading Vehicle Smart on to your mobile 'phone -- costs nothing to look at this in detail. Regards, Peter.
  10. Hi Kev, I think you are correct. The diesel engine of the XF is a developed version of the 2.7 diesel on the S type which has a belt. I can only guess, like Kev, that it is a belt. Peter.
  11. Hi Dave, You should start with the SE version but you must remember that there are a lot of optional extras on top. My s type Diesel SE has a total £11,940 worth of optional extras, kindly paid for by the first owner, and included a proper spare wheel, bluetooth, sat nav with touch screen, CD multi changer and Dove Grey upholstery instead of Barley etc etc. Some of these can be retro fitted. Good luck, Peter.
  12. HI Ian, and welcome to the club. Colin's post is over 3 years old. Your photo is useful though, Regards, Peter.
  13. That seems fair, Graham. The disc knows that most people in Cheshire don't go to Tesco.
  14. Hi Kevin, When my s type gets quite dirty [not often] I cheat a little bit and have it hand washed for a fiver round the corner. I then spend a couple of hours giving it a good wax and shine. Regards, Peter.
