  1. hi just a warning, if your using it for diagnostics its fine if your going to try programing any thing, make sure dvd 2 is installed, thats all the module software and updates the software does not check first, it deletes the software in the module and then looks for the new software and if dvd 2 is not installed, then its too late, its been wiped also you need a descent battery charger connected as well, at all times, when you doing updates or programing, it asks you to turn ignition off and on many times, which can flatten the battery quite quick, if the battery goes below a certain voltage mid programing it may corrupt the module beyond repair cheers joe
  2. hi hopefully cured, denso are oe and the best ones to fit most after market ones wont work cheers Joe
  3. hi looks great all season tyres are usually ok, it depends what winter we get rear wheel drive cars are not the best in ice or snow, but we dont get that much here generally all season tyres are quite good I have used winter/snow tyres and they are far superior in ice and snow and only use them december to march a lot of it it depends on the roads your travelling, if its all main road, there more likely to be kept clear in winter cheers Joe
  4. hi for diagnostic use you can download the software and run it via vmware, virtual image, ok for diagnostics only but for programing modules, updates and programing keys and so on, its best to use on a dedicated window xp pro laptop, its far more stable, you can pick a laptop up for about £50, it the best software out there, you can do every thing jaguar can. some Icarsoft code reader for Jaguar are also very good cheers Joe
  5. hi post some pictures up top screen is usually climate and lower screen is radio on lcd type cheers Joe
  6. HI Jaguar ids/sdd is software used by jaguar and used with a mongoose lead, can do everything jaguar can its very good for fault finding, you can also use most descent code readers where you can monitor live data, that way you can monitor the 4 lambda sensors and see which one is failing when you get the code also you could swap the upstream sensor with the other bank and see if the fault shift to the other side, then you will know which one it is for sure, also when you buy a new sensor, try to stick with denso sensor, after market sensors dont all ways work correct cheers Joe
  7. Hi 2012 is the latest update nav disc available any where, theres nothing else, xf discs wont work cheers Joe
  8. hi yes it can be retro fitted, but there no use, last updated dvd was 2012, so all the roads lay outs are very old I have one in my car, but have had it upgraded to Jagdroid, which converts the original screen to android, so you can do every thing you can on your phone, just google jagdroid cheers Joe
  9. hi I dont think its the cat sounds more like a bad connection somewhere usually this can be a faulty lambda sensor, but as its passed mot, maybe not, worth checking all the connections and also ecu connections, sometimes they corrode and throw up intermittent faults think you already gather L/H Bank, id R/H side looking from engine bay, L/H side from inside the car ideally you want someone with Jaguar IDS/SDD to plug in, as when it throws up faults it usually logs it and a lot of other data, which might help find the fault cheers Joe
  10. well its easy to tell, watch the headlight while some one switches the ignition on and see if they move if you put the light on first and switch the ignition on, in the dark you can see the dip beam go up, then down, then level, if it dont, theres a fault and will need reseting cheers Joe
  11. hi what engine does it have have you tried ad rad they have them for ever thing https://www.adrad.co.uk/ bershire jaguar also do them https://www.berkshirejagcomponents.com/xj8-xjr-water-cooling-radiator-mnc4190ah-c2x24938856 jaguar still do them https://parts.jaguarlandroverclassic.com/mnc4190ah-radiator.html cheers Joe
  12. hi yes there the hid option the adjuster should go fully up and fully down then level, ever time you switch ignition on, if not theres a fault, needs to be reset adjuster break in these, when you order them make sure you state hid xenon lights as adjusters on these are different once the headlights are off, pop them in the oven on about 80 deg C for 10 minutes, it softens the black sealant and the lenses come off easy also you have to disconnect the battery before unplugging the lights, or the self leveling stops working, can only be reset with Jaguar ids/sdd or some icarsoft readers done a few of these, quite straight forward, also swapped my bulbs for 8k ones, there slightly blueish, much better light cheers Joe
  13. hi depends what they have, you would have to post a pic up, standard were halogen and as a option you could have the hid you can buy the adjuster kits off ebay, then remove the headlight and replace them, means pulling the bumper off to remove the lights the adjust inside break as well, very common fault, all the parts come in the same kit cheers Joe
