    Day time running lights

    Hi all I have just bought a 2015 XJ and noticed the day time running lights weren’t on so I took it back to the Jaguar garage and they said it isn’t on this year. Is this correct?
    Many Thanks

    In the 2009 to 2015 model they had a little strip of led's that were actually just "side" lights, they are quite dim.
    It was possible to have daytime running lights enabled in the car's software by the dealer but all that actually did was turn the lowbeam headlights on all the time, something that was rarely done.
    It was not until the 2016 facelifted model with completely different lights was launched that the XJ had "proper" DRL.

    I hope you enjoy your car, welcome to the group, I am on my 10th XJ over a 30 year period !

    Thanks for the quick reply! This is my second XJ. The first was a Daimler sovereign 4.2 series 1 which was a great car. I have had a series of jags since but this XJ seems to have the right mix of performance and comfort. Thanks again!

    I bought my one and only ever brand new car in 2011, it was an XJL 3.0 Luxury, I specified it how I wanted it I was going to keep it forever but after just over 8 years a drunk driver wrote it off last Summer when he hit me at 06.40am on the motorway, it was Claret and always looked stunning. It is in my profile pic actually. I replaced it with a 2015 LWB Portfolio so I guess it will be similar to yours, a lovely car in Dark Blue, I searched the whole country for a suitable Metallic Red one but could not find one so blue was my second choice. These are very special cars and always get lovely comments.
