    Nice one, gotta admit after reading all the horror stories I wasn't sure it could be fixed. Remember reading a thread on here a couple years back chap think he had a silver one - same problem, in the end out of a year it spent most of it's time at the dealership.

    Thanks all....

    Between the Jag being away getting this warranty work done, and the pc issues with the desktop being killed off by the extremely hot weather and having to be replaced, plus loads more I just haven't been anywhere near the site in a week or so.
    Wondering what I missed, if anything?

    Took the car out again just a wee while ago, late night trip to all night garage for a few things. I have to say it's great to be back in my own car and enjoying the space, the power and most of all the quiet.
    No radio / CD etc...….just silence and it was golden, for now anyway.

    All that said, here's my pet hate. Your car goes in to the dealers ( any dealers - they all do it ) with all your settings nice and sorted, just where you want them.
    Of course as part of diagnostics the radio is turned off, the auto lights / wipers etc are turned off too. That coupled with the interior mirror being moved to suit a slightly shorter person , and probably another couple of settings, always really winds me up lol

    First world problems eh?

    Going to spend some time getting re acquainted over the coming days and this weekend, THEN the Fort William run /meet event a week this coming Sunday!!
    Really looking forward to it.

    Then only 3 weeks to go until full pro detail on the car.
    I have to speak very nicely to Niall and see if he'll do one of his special "pro pics" shoots for photographs of her when she's looking her best

    My previous cars have had the interior mirror on the seat memory system as well, and its annoyance of the Jag. Esp when that strange shortarse species know as a Mrs TheBoy uses the car !

    My previous XJ X350 had the interior mirror on the memory system - so its an annoying omission on the X351.

    Like I said, first world problems I suppose....

    That said with this car and others being so advanced, instead of having a memory position for the seats, door mirrors etc, why not have a personalised settings options?

    This could include for seats and mirrors position ( including rear view ) and much more. I'm thinking about preferences for auto lights, auto wipers, dash dials setup, maybe even radio preferences and AC setup etc.

    Driver 1 has the seat in a certain position, prefers auto lights / wipers ( not everyone does - Phil ) certain radio stations and also settings for the AC, perhaps set at 20 degrees or similar
    Driver 2 is a short arsed person, does not like auto lights / wipers and perhaps likes the car hotter / cooler

    You could really go to town and have more things included, surely the way forward?

    I find that hard to believe; I've never seen an X350 with a motorised interior rear view mirror (the one at the top of the windscreen, inside the car!). It's certainly not in the brochures. I think you might be getting your cars crossed. My X358 does not have it, nor did my X350 Super V8 or my other X358 Sovereign.

    Yes it could be specific to the Key maybe? Or set using the on screen menu. You are on to something there Jim!!

    The thing is.... I believe our German friends have already done that... I believe Mercedes can store all sorts of things in a personal profile, seat position, radio station etc....

    Its just a shame the Mercedes isn't a Jaguar!!!
