Thank you kaspa, I use bilt hamber products on my cars and really rate them the Auto foam is amazing you can get a clean car without touching it. The double speed wax beads for in excess of 8 weeks. They will also provide free advice, highly recommend if you wish to keep a detailed look.

On the SVR the complete underneath is protected by covers, I wonder if this would be a retrofit for other F-types also reducing airflow drag at the same time?

Reduce drag and increase aerodynamics they said.... looks like Jaguar have taken to just 'hiding' the rust on the SVR then :D

Hi
I have a 3 year old 340 Coupe. Having read the posts decided to look underneath. Mine is rusty also.

I have asked dealer to put in a warranty claim. As anyone had any look under warranty?

During breakfast at the JEC Summer Festival I was chatting to a member who had just viewed a V8 at Guy Salmon, Coventry.
It was the colour, spec, and mileage he really wanted. Test drive excellent. Insisted on them putting it up on ramps to see underneath and the rear cross brace was totally rotten.
This was a low mileage 2014 car.
Dealer refused to do anything about it so he walked away. Good advice to any prospective buyers, get the dealer to put the car on the ramp before parting with your hard earned cash!
