  1. Interesting question ? I assumed your drive for the sat nav update was in the boot. Left hand side. Black cover over the drive matching the boot material. Im wondering if your car doesn't have a separate drive !! just an end user. Not an expert. The paintwork !! Having spent a year trying to polish it, I just bought a machine polisher, watched a lot of you tube videos and I'm having a crack at it. Very pleased with the results so far. Not too pleased with what paint I have to work with. Jaguar did not do the best of job spraying my car !!
  2. Hi. Sorry to hear your having trouble with your sat nav. When I first bought mine, second owner, I popped the disk out of the drive in the boot. More to see what it was than any other reason. When I put it back, the sat nav would not work. Me being me I took the drive out and took it apart. The arm that scans the disk was stuck. I cleaned the arm and the bushing with isopropyl alcohol and it all freed up and worked. One year on it's still working. Not for the feint of heart but I managed it. Ps it was out of warranty good luck Robb currently
  3. Im 8 weeks into owning my 08 XF with all the toys and we love it. Its such a great place to be, drives likes a dream, a little thirsty but as said before on here, all is forgiven for the sheer pleasure of owning it. All our friends and family love it too Wish I had bought one years ago
  4. Hi Guys, I thought I would just share my experience with the Cruise Control on my 08 XF It was the first colder morning since i had bought the car, although I had been driving for a good half hour before using the Cruise Control. I was on a dual carriageway with lots of speed cameras so i always set the cruise control to 50 mph and leave it. This day I set the speed to 50mph with the control wheel on the steering wheel, then I notice the speed is climbing rapidly. The wheel on the steering wheel was stuck in the increase speed position !! it was at 57 before i realised !! I found that b
  5. Hi guys, car detailing has become a bit of a thing with me since i watched a guy on Youtube called junkman2000. He really knows his stuff and has some great tutorials on there. I have owned my XF for 1 week and so far i have only had time to clay the bodywork. This is using a clay bar, best I've found so far is the turtle wax one with a spray bottle of lubricant, tried the Macquirs which costs more and the clay bar is half the size. It take off all sorts of marks and contaminants that polishing simply leaves behind. You have to try it to believe the difference it makes. I then use a brand cal
  6. Hi everyone, I'm a new XF convert having owned a Volvo for the last 13 years and putting 204k on it, I'm hoping the XF will prove as reliable. Im loving the car so far, just not the garage that sold it with a few niggles that need sorting. Im down on the Hampshire Dorset border in the New Forest and look forward to hearing and learning more about my new car. Thanks Robb
