Getting close to V8 mpg there Glenn!
Don’t I know it, all the show with none of the go!!

That’s what happens I guess when you let your DPF get too full, it just dumps fuel anywhere but the pistons.

Unfortunately, no one seems to have the answer to this problem.
If the XJ was a mainstream car then I bet a solution would have been found.
A simple truth right there....

Merry Christmas everyone, big day been and gone, hopefully you all got spoilt.

Me, I got new polishing pads for my DA, a box full of Microfiber cloths along with the usual T shirts and other similar “your no longer a kid” stuff.

I also got a Firestick for the car and a natty T shirt.

My new phone contract has unlimited data so no need to worry about tethering for too long now.

Hope you're having a good Christmas Glenn.

Well done on the Firestick. Just did mine last week "because I could". I do have 40GB of data per month on my 18 month 4G 3 sim, so may atleast try and use some of it :D

I had no idea you could plug in a firestick :eek:
I have a spare one at home so that will be going into the car tomorrow :)

Sounds like you got spoilt Glenn.

T shirt looks great

I had thought about it ages ago, Marc has one in his and it was on my to-do list, Janis obviously pays more attention to things I say than the other way round…. lol

I’m not sure how good it’ll be on the move, guess if you hit data black-spots it’ll give issues, but certainly adds to options for the grandkids.
Cracking shirt - is that custom made, or generally available?
I’m not sure, I’ll need to ask Janis, it’s not one I’d seen before, so pretty impressed with it.

I would have been too!

All I got was a day out at Thruxton pootling around in an F-Type.

Better make the most of it while I still can...

I did read through the post... Did I miss something?
It was about using a FireStick.

(... which was a bit more relevant to the conversation than the "turning off 3G" content of the preview)

Yes, I meant that I can use the firestick to stream with my 3G. As I am with Three and they will switch off 3G by end of 2024. Which means I should be okay to use the firestick and stream all the way into 2024 at some point and then the streaming will stop when the 3G is switched off.

In short, my firestick will be good well into 2024 fingers crossed

Never used 3G to stream? I wonder how good this would actually be with the high quality these things try to run at?
That’s why I had planned to tether off my phone.
For me it’s really a back up, having 2 64gb memory sticks with movies, an iPod with music along with the DVD player with a pile of cartoons loaded on a disc kept in place. (Other DVD’s stores in the glovebox too).
