    I'm curious... did the tank slap affect the petrol cars as well? Never seem to hear of them needing to be fixed.

    No, petrol is not so dense

    I hadn't noticed the tank slap until I was in the car with no engine running, on the back of a moving recovery truck a couple of weeks ago. I don't hear it ordinarily.

    Incidentally, I found that it's impossible to steer round corners from that position!

    Only 3 seats in the truck: one for the driver and two for the ladies. My pal John and I were high, wide and handsome in the car. I was wide, John was handsome and we were both high (no, not in an illegal substance way).

    Yep mine is in their new premises. It looks impressive, big and plenty of space for customers to chill out and get refreshments. Drive in service bays as well. Its all very nice customer service but as long as they look after my car I don't mind. I have a base XF 2.0d prestige loan car... cannot wait to get my beasty back!

    I saw over the last week or so that the cars were arriving and the LR side of things also moved to as the old showroom at NP now empty.

    Thats it, the service advisor as LR in NP has moved over to MK too, she used to be at Luton Jag before. Used to take my old XType there back in the day. Might see you around if you're local Scooby.

    With that warning, check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. Usually a sign that the alternator is goosed.

    I have a Scangauge 2 permanently plugged into the OBD port. Was on charge overnight and will be again tonight. Will check voltage out.

    You know how I was saying the customer service is impressive and the new Jag showroom looks great - well these guys had my car for 6 hours, confirmed what I said was the issue on mine, and said we dont have the parts, it will be mid Feb before we can book you in again. I booked it in ages ago, explained the symptoms and they didnt order a part in just in case? I dont mine taking it back in and its not a massive irritation but its bit of a ball ache having to go back again.
