Probably one for Mr DTM....


Are LR and Jag wheelnuts the same?  As LR ones are an awful lot cheaper...

They inherited that ridiculous idea from Ford...

Had several 19mm MK2 Grandad ones reduce to 18.2 mm when the caps fell off ;D

They are a hangover from Ford days with the X-ondeo and fitted to all non SUV vehicles so not Land Rover but XE, XF (X250/X260), F-Type, XK, XJ

How many do you need and how urgent?

Thanks for the call yesterday Mr DTM :).

If you bump into any of the designers, remind them if I wanted a Ford, I would have bought a Mundano. Or an X Type.
