I need the belt changed on my XFS, it's 11 years old, presumably on the original belt, only 60k miles on it though, but due to age is due. Wondering where to get it done, not paying main dealer prices of course.

Edit: My location for those that don't know is Ripley, Derbyshire.
Is it too far for you to go to the Jag Specialist at Armthorpe?

Thanks for that recommendation, only just over an hour away. Sounds like a good excuse for a drive. I will give them a call and feedback to the forum.
You can't go wrong with Swallows. Most of the techs are from Taunton Jaguar anyway. You'll get a better service and smaller bill.

Another alternative I’ve heard good reports of but not used, LP Autotech at Honiton.

I had mine done at Inchcape Jaguar in Derby as it was cheaper than indi. Cam belt was around £650 and aux belt around another £50 (price of part only) which I thought was OK for a main dealer. This is on 3.0 S, also 2011, pre face lift. They said aux belt was fine, but thought it worth replacing while it was stripped down.
