Bit late to the party...

Post by Selsy » Mon Aug 12, 2019 5:06 pm

Hello everyone,

Had my 3.0 V6 S Convertible for just over two years now. It's one of the very earliest models with quite a basic spec but, quite frankly, with the looks and that exhaust, I couldn't care less about the lack of toys.

The only downside of ownership has been dealing with JLR, have tried two dealers now for servicing/issues and had a very bitter experience with both of them.

Looking forward to searching through the forum posts to see if I can find some answers to a few current problems with the car. I have a feeling this forum will be a lot more helpful than JLR!

I'm based in South Bucks but willing to travel to find a dealer who actually gives a f__ about its customers.

Milton Keynes too far?
I used E&E as an independent for my XK RS. They were very good and great value for money. All Jag main dealer trained.
I’ll use them for the SVR

Run out to Swindon? Mike Allen by the station is a good indie.

Taplow?
Powerbell are supposed to be good.
Haven't used them myself though.

Thank you all for your recommendations. :) Interesting that they are all independents. Powerbell is very near to my office so I shall explore that avenue first.
