    Good evening x308 community, I am a new member here and would like introduce myself and my newest project. So, I am a college student majoring in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Journalism with a strong passion for cars and motorsports. I have had previous projects that are both...

    Hey everyone! Title says it all! Which is more likeable/valueable? Personally I really like the Asteroid rims because of their sportyness but the Penta rims have got something more classical about them. What is your oppinion? General Discussion! Edit1: these pictures are not mine!

    Dear fellow Jaguar enthusiasts, I have been the owner of a Jaguar XJ8 4.0 Executive of the X308 series for a few weeks and would like to present the following problem to you: At a speed above 70 kilometers (45 miles) per hour, an annoying vibration arises in the car that seems to come from...

    Dear fellow Jaguar enthusiasts. I am about to purchase my first Jaguar and am currently looking at a XJ8 X308 4.0 Executive at a local dealership. The test drive showed that between 80 and 100 km/h (between 50 and 60 miles per hour) a vibration was perceptible in the car, felt both in the...

    Hi i just got a xj8 and the first thing that struck me is that it doesn't even have an aux port, so I'm wondering if there is any way to add bluetooth to the car that also works with the buttons on the steering wheel?

    Hi all, The 2002 XJ wont open off a fob. The central locking and everything else works off the key or internal buttons. The fobs have been checked and are transmitting. I've cleaned the contact at the roof aerial. I unplugged and reset the aerial and SLM connectors. The box looks like new. No...

    Anyone else suffer from this? My auto headlights only work intermittently now (less than 50% of the time). I began to notice it when turning and the auto lights would go off and stay off. Sometimes putting the headlights on manual and then back to auto would bring the lights back. Any clues?

    As the owner of an old 420 (12 years) and a 3.0 X-type estate (2 years), I found the ride comfort of the X-type always a bit too firm compared to very supple ride of the 420. Which disappointed me a little, especially as I had chosen the X-type to be the Executive variant and not the Sport which...

    Hi All, So, I've had Jessica the Jaguar for a few weeks now, and she's started throwing error codes and going in to Limp Mode. I was able to fix the P0171 (system too lean) by re-seating the air filter box lid, but it still pops up from time to time (the code, that is). Similarly, she goes in...

    Hi there, the button to open the boot on my X308 (year 2000) has just stopped working. However all other methods work - key in boot, fob and the button by the dash. Any clues? Thanks

    Hope you guys don'y mind me asking a similar question (again) on which to choose, i'm just so indecisive and need some expert opinions and guidance. Anyway, i've spent a good few hours going over similar forums trying to condense all the information but all its done has confused me more! As i...

    I'm almost out of space in my service book. One more stamp to go, due in tomorrow. Where do I get a new one for my 2000 XJ8? Thanks

    How do I get rid of butter marks on my grey leather?! My son has been a mucky boy! Many thanks.
  15. XJ8 / XJR (X308) 1997 - 2003
    What are the batteries I need? My Jag is a Dec 2000 xj8 3.2. I'm sure the batteries are dead. The remote won't open or close the car or even open the boot lid...unless my son somehow confused the system when he was pressing every button on the dash. But then later I opened all the car doors and...

    Even if you're not in possession of the one of the early Jaguar XJ Series of luxury saloons from the 1960s, 70s or 80s, or the proud owner of one of the models that superseded the X308, you would be correct in rushing to point out, that any discussion on such a subject could only ever be a...

    Hello Jaguar Lovers, I left my drivers window down one night and got heavy rain on the window switches. No function now from the drivers door window master switches. I'm going to open it up, have a look and clean contacts. Anyone have any advice please? I've taked the door card off for speakers...

    Hi, I had frequent error messages in the display; Engine fail safe, etc and had arrived at the diagnosis: faulty throttle body (TB). It was my understanding that the TB was the same across the series (XJ8 and early XK8), so I tried the TB from my 3.2 XJ8 Sport in the XJR. However, I have also...

    Hi folks! I am a new member today and thought this would be the right place to ask about modifying my xj8 sport by getting a custom s/s sports exhaust installed. I am good friends with a smithys company here in inverness and am asking them to make me a new system though i have a few questions...

    Hello, I need a new (used) MAF for an X308 XJR. Part number is: LNC1620AA, but I understand the two last letters may be different for the same MAF. Does anybody know which other MAFs I may use with this vehicle? The VIN is SAJJPALF4CR869907. Thank you!! Kind regards, Bard Thomas
