Is there a reason such as higher spec, that some but not all Jaguars have red Growler badges?
Just that I'm thinking of picking out my grille badge with Humbrol 19 - far easier and cheaper than removing and refitting - unless that would get me drummed out of the forum, for shame.

And replacing the wheel badges, come wheel refurb time. And, for X351, I see that Red calipers are a factory thing too. Mmmm...

Yes. Such as higher spec.

Nope - the guys round here love improvers. Post pictures as you go.

Replace them any time, they are only £20 each. Be aware that some of the more demanding will insist that you point the growler's chin at the valve.

No they chuffing-well aren't. Unless you buy one of they gaudy "R"s.

Have whatever you want MM although they will suit your car, cost around £80 probably to do the grille badge and wheels all round, will look good

Do whatever you want on the calipers, red, silver etc etc, but a clean up and a fresh coat of paint lacquer, combines with new centre caps, clean wheels etc will really make her pop.

I believe that factory fit red calipers were part of the kit that includes the boot spoiler and front valance extension. I have them on my car along with red badges. But it is a red car.
