    Maybe worth changing the coolant reservoir cap. I had the same symptoms but never found any actual evidence of coolant leaking from anywhere. I changed the cap and my coolant level has not dropped...

    The black pack can be retrofitted. The four front grilles can be obtained from a dealer, or sprayed gloss black (this may be susceptible to stone chips though), I had the window trims wrapped and...

    Thanks for that. The issue I have with the silver one (at least on my car) is that the four buttons for Winter Mode, Dynamic Mode, DSC and ASL are really flimsy, they rattle about to the touch and...

    The XK (4.2 and 5.0) only ever had one small box in the middle section, XKR and variants had two. The Performance Active Exhaust option had no middle boxes and a X-over pipe in the middle section. ...

    Performance exhaust (I think) is the standard one on all XKR's, with the active valves on two of the exit pipes. The optional extra (standard on XKR-S, XKR 75, XK Dynamic R and possibly others) that...

    On a bit of a tangent, it baffles me how the first 5.0 cars got a lot of things as standard that were options on the 4.2 - e.g. heated steering wheel - but the alloy pedals that became standard on...

    Thanks for that. Mine isn't such a high-pitched whistle like that, more like an owl. I'll try and get a recording next time I can hear it.

    Has anyone got a sound clip of this? Mine is doing something similar, I'd call it more of a howl than a whistle though. I'll try and get a clip next time it does it, usually only happens if the car...
