    Reaching out to members (on behalf of my mum)

    Hi guys, (I know its not car related but bear with me...) My mother was diagnosed with a tumor of which 90% has been removed but the other can't be due to it being close to functions within the brain/body. I apologise I don't know a lot of the technical names but she has Stage 4 of the most...

    Am I missing out on anything? (06-09)

    Ok I know there was changes in 57' onwards for the 4.2 XKR but just to ask is there anything I would have on the 57'-09' that would not be on the pre-57's? I know the aerial dissapears and theres a fault with the window bracket (or is that very early 06's?) but do you still get the bi-Xenon...

    Important question I forgot!...

    Ok so now that I've driven one I'm happy its THE thing lol. However, I will be checking with Infiniti Glasgow if I would still be eligible for my reduced amount if I can still have them service/do repairs on an XKR (which they said they'd happily do other cars and do so just now and the tech...

    Hold the phone! (boy racer cap on I'm afraid...)

    Ok not the most important thing but as I said I've been tossing and turning over XK or XKR for future purchase. So I know I like the inside, its comfy, I've been in my neighbours XKR, heard it etc. The other side of it is the (big kid) side, it should either equal or be more than my 350Z (HR...

    Good Idea or am I heading towards an expensive mistake?

    Ok, so I'm in a constant battle of 'humming and hawing' over this. I would like an XK...or more so an XKR to be honest. Running costs are not an issue, little bit more on tyres, servicings about the same, I never bother about fuel but an XKR doesn't seem (from what I read and someone I know) a...

    XK Clutch info (2006+)

    Ok so another question if someone can help me out :) Since I've never owned an auto of some form or other before, can I ask how long... Roughly does the clutch last on them? Do they last a bit longer as your not wearing it as much via your own foot and gear changes? Also in the Z its best to...
