    London Ultra Low Emmission Zone-Jag modification

    My JAGUAR XJ SOVEREIGN V6SWB TDVI A is caught by this new additional charge to be introduced in London from April 2019. https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ult...where-and-when

    Can anyone help with:
    a)whether I can carry out any modification/adaptation to comply with the emission specs;
    b)point me to someone who could carry out the modification.

    The tfl website provides some advice in relation vans/lorries and points to approved examiners/modification experts but I have not seen anything for cars.
    Apologies if the topic is covered in an earlier post!

    Hi and welcome to the forum. There is no modifications available yet to adapt cars to Euro 6 spec.
    I am in the same boat but rarely go into the congestion charge zone but from 2021 when the zone expands to the north/south circular then one will not be able to use the Blackwall Tunnel (in particular)without paying.

    I think a lot of people will be forced to replace their cars or buy a compliant town car.

    This might help you to decide, they have some good information: https://www.fleeteurope.com/en/taxat...6c-and-6d-temp

    As far as I can tell the change to Euro 6 requirements has needed a change in technology for diesels with the addition of SCR / Ad Blue systems and a total recalibration of the engine and injection mapping. So I don't think it will ever be worthwhile someone developing a Euro 6 conversion for earlier diesels. I've been eyeing 2014/5 XF Sportbrakes for a while but they are Euro 5 spec and will still be caught by the charges (like others the post 2021 zone will affect me most) and I don't think it is possible to even retrofit the current spec emission kit on what is basically the same model.

    Many thanks for all the replies! Grateful. Looks like I will have to put up and shut up or get a newer jag. Can't part with my XJ. Moman

    And Euro 6 is more "polluting" than Euro 4. Just different pollutants. You know, the after effects of burning Pig wee.

    Like you , I have been looking at the XF Sportsbrake too but to conform you need a 65 plate. There are lots of 15 plate and earlier on the market but the dealers are not advising customers of the pending ULEZ or offering to upgrade when the time comes at a reasonable discount either. Could be expensive for some of us.

    To explore possibilities, what's a reasonably priced small compliant town car to use as a daily and keep the Jag or other non-compliant luxury car, chaps?

    Whatever you do to your car to reduce emissions will be a waste of time because the charge is based on the declared emissions at the time of manufacture. It could be the cleanest Diesel on the roads but if Jaguar declared it Euro 4 compliant then you will be charged accordingly.

    Did you notice that since they can't add new categories at the moment, they've cheated by tightening up Euro 6 to 6a, 6b, 6c and are likely to make 6d etcetera?

    So what older town cars around £3,000 are Euro 6a, 6b, 6c compliant?

    I could look them up for myself but that won't inform others and doesn't promotion discussion.
