Screenshot from the "health check video" mine from last week, I think that counts as pretty corroded!

MY 2014 Dealer looking to replace through Jaguar. Will report back on progress.

A quick update to my situation - rear braces replaced this morning, the work only took a few hours at my dealer of choice, they also serviced the rear diff at the same time.

In summary, I am happy with the outcome. However having rust free rear x-braces does highlight just how horrible looking the rest of the underside looks.

Whilst it is all cosmetic, it's shocking that Jaguar think it's okay for a prestige vehicle to look like this in just 4 years. The budget S.Korean manufacturers don't even have this problem.
