Re: Hmm to Harwoods or not to……

£205 per hour!!! Jesus that's expensive :shock: Yeah but it does include Rishi's 20% :roll: Service secretary/telephonist/invoice handler said it wasn't as exensive as Porsche. My reply "And your point is?" It's not the labour cost alone I'm squirming at, it's the way they seemed to think...

Re: Hmm to Harwoods or not to……

Update from me. Decided to go to Harwoods to keep the FJSH as she's being replaced next year. Fixed price £289. They have no idea about their own £299 deal that included brake fluid change. When I showed them the email they said it was a bit ambiguous! They then said the £299 deal had fewer checks. ...

Re: Hi All

Hi and welcome. There are still a lot out there and the prices are all "negotiable" as we all look to divert our budget to trees and turkeys. FWIW I am considering selling mine v soon as I have a new toy incoming. I'm not a Jaguar dealer but the price will reflect that! Plus it has a trans...

Re: The F-Type Hypermiling Challenge!

Interesting but doesn't all this seem a little sad ;) If I seriously cared about mpg I'd just take my child murdering Diesel, drive it like a nun with 9 points and coast everywhere. But this is a 340 hp cat and the more fuel and rubber I use up and the louder I make it, the bigger my grin :mrgreen:

Re: Hmm to Harwoods or not to……

Thanks for all the info, very useful. I'm due a service very soon and am considering both Harwoods Chi and Arun! Last year it went to Harwoods and I was not unhappy apart from the invoice. I was rather apprehensive following my consistent dire experiences with Harwoods Audi at Five Oaks but fortunat...

Re: Windscreen washer front water tank

Hi Darren You've not had the car a month yet. Or should I say MY car!! I would ask Ashley Nickells, where you bought it, to look at it or at least ask them who to take it to. Even if you didn't get a warranty I think we can safely assume the fault existed before you bought the car, so the dealer wil...

Re: Some dealers don't help themselves

Let’s assume the guy polishing it hadn’t left the door handle out and given it a whack with the polisher 🙄 It was an XF with handle hanging on by wires. :oops: Maybe the door handle fitter was busy but the polisher was at a loose end? ;) Busy maybe but by midday both these cars should have been eit...

Re: Some dealers don't help themselves

Can the dealer be named please. Or at least the town! I arrived at a main dealer in Crawley a while back. It was midday. One apparently AUC had a flat tire and another was being polished even though it had a door handle hanging off. Incredible. The car I went to test drive had major electrical greml...

Re: Hi Newbie from Kent near Maidstone

Hi Darren. So it was you who got to Ashley Nickells before me last Monday then. Well done. I’m just a tad jealous! Hope to see it at a meet one day. Looked like my ideal upgrade from a 2014 auto. Grrrrrr. I’ll keep looking. As for the rash, normal unfortunately. Red is easy to paint but it won’t las...

Re: IRR F type replaced

Very nice upgrade. What a beautiful colour, but you'll need those extra 2 cylinders now you don't have the fastest colour :D
