    Excellent mate many thanks, those prices are respectable enough, i seen a single dust cap on ebay for £15 and the adapters for £20. I actually only need one adapter and one dust cap so i can save money and not buy the kit. Did you pay postage on top? I may see what else i need if im going to place an order.

    If there was postage it did not cost very much, but these items are also available at about the same price from any Jaguar dealer which will be free delivery if collected - but they will almost certainly have to order them in.

    I also looked on Ebay but what I saw at the time looked expensive and very second hand. I wanted items that were definitely going to work when I needed them, and as these original parts were not expensive it was an easy choice. I am lead to believe that when these cars were new the pouch contained 2 x dust caps, 2 x valve adaptors and 1 x key, so that is what I bought.

    Your right some of the stuff on ebay is expensive too. I ordered my valve adapter and dust cap yesterday along with drive belts for my xkr, the valve adapter was out of stock so it will be early next week when they should be delivered. They were too expensive for wiper blades so i gor a pair of bosch off ebay for £15. Many thanks for your help
