Will never understand it, buy caravan at huge cost. Depreciation of it is just as bad as car, running costs, storage costs, insurance. Get horrible MPG towing and generally rubbish experience to tow, don't exactly enjoy drive with burger van on the back.

Then when you arrive you cook your own dinners, empty your own cr@p, and be side by side with other plastic boxes in a field and pay for the privilege to park   ???


A hotel, with pool, room service, en-suite right in city centre or out in country side.

For the running costs of a Caravan for a year, you can buy a lot of hotel rooms. Think I'll stick to Marriott Hotels.  :)
As much as I have no desire to stay in a caravan, I think on reflection, I would prefer that to hotels.  I've yet to ever go to a hotel that I've enjoyed, except by artificially getting so plastered I can't remember it.

Obviously, rather than a caravan, I'd rather use my tent if the weather is warmish - its more spacious, more comfortable, cheaper, and not restrained to silly speed limits.

Maybe you two should launch JOOF and show Jag owners what a forum should really be like.  :y

I received a questionnaire from Jaguar on Tuesday which I duly completed yesterday lunch time.....

.....questions such as:

'Would you recommend Stratstone Jaguar Nottingham to others' I was generous with giving them a 2 plus a comment something like, pleasant atmosphere and very welcoming however, they then fail to complete on the basics of effective communication and preparing the car to the agreed standard.

The phone rang at 4.50pm....some senior bod from Stratstone, we will be discussing things further on Tuesday.
The only survey I could fill out when Strathstone Jaguar "mislaid" my over a saleman's lunchbreak was an over the phone one :(

I would loved to have written something down.  I think she offered me a call from the service manager, but what was the point, as I will never visit that service department again. Ever.  Incompetence doesn't even come close.

We've obviously got different ideas of the ballache involved :y 
And you did say you were time limited, so getting it done on Monday(for instance) would be worth something to me.

I don't drill out shear bolts, but weld an ordinary one to them then loosen with a normal spanner.

That implies that you do have a key for the barrel as you'll struggle to remove it without.
In which case, your recovery service should  move the car to whoever you choose as they will want it complete. I've done loads like that, as well as locked cars with no keys, but that costs extra.

No, I don't have any key for the barrel. I'd have to drill the heads of the shear bolts to remove the entire assembly....
Getting it recovered, paying labour etc, seems like a real ballache.

If someone had an ECU, Key, Barrel and receiver, for I'm guessing not much money, I could have it running inside of an hour....
