Morning R, can I ask what Indy you will use, as I bought my car from Harwoods Chichester too. I’ve done a little research and Cedar garage comes out favorably when servicing Jaguars in Tarring, Worthing.

Thanks everyone. That’s definitely made my mind up.

@keith I’m intending to use Arun in Pulborough. (https://www.arunltd.com/). They changed the seats and a steering wheel button when I first got it and were awesome, well priced and incredibly helpful.

If you have a good local Jaguar specialist, go for it every time, once you are out of warranty. There is a considerable saving in cost. For you in Chichester I would recommend JagCare/S&C Motors in Portsmouth. And they will update your Jaguar on line service record for you, and I have been very pleased with their service. No posh lounge and coffee, and the loan car is a Polo, but they know what they are doing, and it’s about 1/3 of the cost.

And if you had your last service done by an independent who did not update your Jaguar on line service history, just send an email to
jagcrc@jaguarlandrover.com
With a copy of the service record and the invoice and they will update it for you.

Why not use an indy Jag specialist when you are still within warranty? I do and they are able to make warranty claims for you.

Hiya Folks,

No need at the mo….but, as I’m new to the world of Jaguar and , in particular, F-Type ownership, does anyone know if or better still have positive experience of an south Essex based indie Jaguar specialist?

I’ve not invested time researching this myself as yet, I’m acutely aware that there is significant knowledge and insight in here.

Any comments would be welcome

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 fortunately it appears Chichester has recruited the educated and qualified staff :lol:

Rimbo, can you please let me know how you get on in Pulborough. ta.

I have a five year service plan so have been using a main dealer, when this runs out I will be considering Mercury Cars in Hutton.
