Somebody on the Jag forum shoved in what ECP "recommended" into his 85k XJ, and shagged the DPF in under 200 miles :o
Are you saying that he actually did it himself and had not taken it to a dealer.?  :o Has that invalidated his warranty?  ;)
The Sunday Polishing Brigade gave him a serves-you-right reception to that ;D

its that time of year for a m.o.t & service. its an oil query - does a vehicle with stop - start tech need a special oil ( tech manual specifies  0/30 synthetic ) ,last year opie oil recommended Total Quartz which cost me nearly half of as much that ep were wanting. also if a new battery is ever needed , not a lot of change out of 450 whats wrong when that time comes of getting a good amperage & sticking that on.  :-\
well had the mot & service done yesterday . did surprise me a little tho when i went to pick it up , apparently it needed new rear brake pads. i thought a message would have appeared on the screen, every thing else does . if a tyre needs air i am warned so why not brake pads.
