  1. http://www.theparksidegarage.co.uk/services/automatic-transmission-flushing/ They are Indy Jaguar but the gearbox is the same. Huddersfield
  2. Thanks for the replies. The Jaguar is 15 months old but the dealer has offered to give an extra 12 months Jaguar warranty foc on top of the usual 36 months so that’s a plus. The Mercedes is a bit smaller than the 5er. I need a larger boot for my business, so I am leaning towards the Jag. Jag is £180 cheaper to insure too. Maybe that reflects I the build??. Again, thanks for the replies.
  3. I’m looking to change. Had enough of BMW I’m afraid. Finalised down to Mercedes C Class AMG Line estate or Jaguar XF R sport estate. Any previous owners with any experience , pros, cons etc would be appreciated. Both to be 2019 or 2020 cars

    Buying advice for F11

    I have one. The gearbox is fine, it’s the engine which is causing problems. Egr cooler, then egr valve, then full de coke. 58000 miles running on v power with oil and filter every 10 k.

    EGR and inlet question n47

    Just had the inlet manifold cleaned and rest walnut blasted. I am going to post the whole affair with pics. 58000miles run on v power all it’s life. I think the whole egr thing is ruining engines early.

    F11 front brake parts

    4 6 and 7. But the clip / pad retainer is nothing like that on my car. It’s like the picture I posted. so 2x no 7 4 x no 6 4 x no 4 but as I say no 2 is not the same as on my car.
  9. Look on the rear suspension arm on the n/s. Where the exhaust goes over the suspension arm check for debris. Mine had a small stone wedged between the two and made a clatter. Might not be your problem but worth a check.

    F11 front brake parts

    Morning, could you you give me a price for 2 off number 3 4 off number 7 4 off number 8 in the diagram? Any forum users that have any views on these replacements solving the creaky brake syndrome please let me know. Do I really need to replace number 8, the guide pin? Not a cost issue just wether or not it helps. Chassis D438330 Thank you.

    Wheel alignment and ADAS recalibration

    In that case after wheel alignment and you hit a small pothole putting the wheel alignment out again, the camera alignment will be out too.

    Wheel alignment and ADAS recalibration

    I thought it strange, but looking at the old reliable internet of truth, even the AA say it’s needed. The garage who brought it up said he issues a form when he does the alignment to say it needs doing, just to cover himself.
  13. Hi, i have been been speaking to a number of garages to check my 4 wheel alignment on F11 only one has said I would need to have my safety camera system recalibrated. BMW did the last wheel alignment and I watched. No ADAS recalibration just the usual print out. Anyone else come across this? As I say out of the 5 I rang only one mentioned the camera system. See below Advanced Driver Assistance Solutions are increasingly becoming standard in vehicles today. Such as park assist, lane guidance, emergency braking assist etc ADAS relies on multiple data sources within the vehicle, when these systems are disturbed or vehicle repairs happen it means ADAS systems need re-calibrating. To maintain the accuracy of ADAS systems it is essential the vehicle position and alignment are kept accurate ensuring safety at all times.
  14. Just after ceramic coating was applied.

    Battery top-up

    What about if you want to remove the battery from the car to recharge / recondition. A battery shop said this was the best way ? Very confusing.
