New Jag for the next 24 hours.
« on: 07 March 2018, 17:52:49 »

I'm clearly going out of favour.... :'(

I started with a 2017 AWD  F-Type 5.0 SC followed by another F-Type 5.0 SC, only this time with all 550 BHP going to the rear wheels. :y

Then came a 2017 300 BHP XFS 3.0 derv. This time I have a 2017 2.0 XE (180) derv in poverty spec. :-\

Still, the service is only costing £225, which seems quite reasonable and probably not much more than it would cost to service  Mrs STMO's new Astra.

I have to say the XE is lovely to drive but.......

It's finished in a colour similar to battleship grey. :-\

What are they doing in the service? Sometimes a “service” is just an oil change.

An 'A' service on a Renault is a pollen filter change.

Ha, really? So £15 part. Bundled into £150 Service?

I seem to remember it's about £120 but, of course, you get a 'diagnostic check' as well as the filter  ;D

That's an improvement on Jag dealers, where clearly at its last, £900 major service, they found a dirty, old, non genuine pollen filter to fit....

Jaguar have an A and B service. In line with most manufacturer's the A service consists of an oil and filter change and a general poke about.

Without the 3+ service the cost would be in the £400-£500 bracket.......which of course is ridiculous.

So.....for my £225 I receive 7.25 litres of 0/20w oil and presumably a genuine Jaguar oil filter. I also get the use of their dumper truck XE which  is full of derv (at the present time) ::) ::)

They'll also give me a crappy 5 minute video of the underside of the car and as much 'proper coffee' as I can drink.

I presume when STMO paid £120 for his 'pollen filter' they also did an oil and filter change.

No....that's the 'B' service, every two years or 18,000 miles.

The 3+ deal though, I think can only be applied from approved used Jags, not any old second hand  ones?

So literally £120 for a pollen filter then. :-\  That sounds like taking the piss.
