    So What Did You Do to your Jaguar today ?

    I'm surprised you didn't remove the rear lights, fuel filler flap and other bits to list on the forum in case anyone needed them in the future 🤔 Has the remains gone to a specialist Jaguar spares recycler or just an 'everyday' scrappy?

    So What Did You Do to your Jaguar today ?

    Keeping the X-Type should give you a massively small carbon footprint... My wife gets our new vehicle every couple of years while I find something I love and keep it as long as possible (MGB GT 33 years etc...) My X-Type is coming up 13 years old and it's well maintained, doesn't smoke and...

    08 2.2 X Type Diesel - that old low power black smoke chestnut again!

    In my experience the later, electronic, non-vacuum EGR's very rarely respond to cleaning. By the time they act up they will usually have suffered terminal damage from either worn or burned out internals after being stuck by combustion products. A decent valve is in the region of £200 - £300...

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

    Ferrari Roma = Jaguar F Type pastiche Need I say more than Enzo Ferrari when he called the Jaguar E Type the most beautiful car in the world? The Roma apes not only the basic shape but so many of the F Type styling cues that I'm surprised Jaguar havent considered legal action. Also surprised...

I hope you now get some pleasure from Jaguar ownership (even if you still have some issues to sort out!) There are lots of experienced and helpful people on this forum who are able to advise...

    Are the pollution benefits of DPF's really worth all the hassle when compared to a well maintained diesel without? 🤯
