    All the mods are subtle and effective.
    I prefer the your old 19"wheels like those fitted on my XJL.

    I am going to go for weld on rear tailpipe ends from Powerflex similar to the Arden ones as after a few miles the original ones start to rattle a little.

    Apart from those minor differences your XJ is exactly how i would like mine to be one day.

    Though due to the miles i do i suspect it will be upgraded soon anyway.

    Thanks for showing us your work.

    Really like your work, please let us know if the whole front has to be removed to replace the grille. I want mine like yours. If it does I would add the DRL'S at the same time.

    Also, I will be in France on 1st Sept for a few days, Calais, St Quentin and Colmar, then Briancon and Honfleur later, would you be anywhere near? A meeting would be good.

    Well now I think it will be the last on this mod XJ ... this was a year that I was looking for the famous Maroa rims 20 "of the Ultimate series
    Usually not a fan of black wheels, especially on a black car, then I think it will not hurt him because there are large polished surfaces.


    I took the opportunity to dust off the passage of Pirelli PZero because really not convinced by the Dunlop !!

    You have done a really nice job with the car and it looks fantastic. For me the wheels are a bit not right but Hey Ho everybodys choice is different. Once again a pat on the back and an excellent job done.
