Re: Jaguar are losing the plot!

When I read about lawyers circling and making a big fuss over cease and desist orders it only means one thing - they are preparing the company for a sale. They are building up the value of any IP and creating the aura of a bullish company.

Re: Tyres advice please.

I have had XVS on my OTS for years and they are superb, but expensive. I run that car with 30/35 psi f/r and I could not understand why the FHC with the Dunlop's has such poor handling.

Re: Indicator /park light lenses

There is no known solvent for the glue (Marek tried when he was making moulds of the originals) however it does become brittle with age so tapping the lens on a table might cause them to separate (mine did). They are joined together with a tongue and groove which makes cutting them difficult. Retain...

Re: engine number starting with 7D ending-8 , can this be not its original

Re: Otter Switches

Consider the Coolcat thermostatic switch (made by Mitsubishi) as it is accurate and very reliable.

The switch can be easily replaced but you need their housing.
