    Jaguar Main Dealer doing 3+ fixed price servicing near Bristol / Bath?

    As above, my beloved 2011 XKR has just come out of its servicing plan (I had one free servicing remaining courtesy of the last owner who had it as part of his used approved package).

    Does anyone know of, or can recommend, a main dealer doing the Jaguar 3+ fixed price servicing near Bristol or Bath (or within about an hours drive)?

    I tried Guy Salmon Jaguar in Bristol, but they don't offer it and the guy I spoke to on the service desk did not have a clue in general, quoting for servicing work not needed for year/mileage, and left me wanting to avoid them. They also were not able to tell me of anyone in the main dealer network who offered the '100% Jaguar' 3+ service menu. Will try the new **** Lovatt Dealership in Melksham tomorrow.

    I know some of you might say use a good independent - I have a great one near me; Mike Allen, Wiltshire Jaguar Specialists; who I do use for all my work and I rate them extremely highly. But I want to keep the main dealer service stamp just for continuity in my records.

    Any info greatly appreciated!

    Could try Taunton Jaguar, they used to do it.

    I now use Swallow Jaguar (M5 J22) who are an independent but they can update the online service record, so whilst my book isn't now stamped by a full dealer it still says Jaguar on the stamp so many wouldn't notice the difference, and ToPIX is updated. Given the age of your car I personally would use Mike Allen, the impact on any resale would be negligible.

    Thanks idrobbo. Yes, I think l just need to get my head around taking the first step away from full Jag Main dealer service history!

    I'll give Taunton a bell just to check.

    Heard very good things about Swallows as well. They're about the same distance away from me as Mike Allen.
