    Remote boot closing

    Itís always puzzled me why the XJ boot canít be closed by the remote like the XF can, is this something that can be configured?

    I understand it is available in some markets, so it is probably configurable.

    Someone has done this on another forum. They used an aftermarket part that was designed for the XF sportbrake. He initially had problems with it but the designer of the part altered it for him and now it works fine.

    Well Iíve bit the bullet and ordered one, updates later when it arrives and is fitted, Iíve spoke to the seller and he seems to know his stuff, stating that there are many variants of the module across the Jaguar and Land Rover brand but the only consistent one being for the XJ.
