    Anyone know if the airfilter is supposed to be changed on the third service on the 3.2 V6? Just got mine back and it has not been changed. They also didn't fix the missing am bands on the radio.

    Thats why i ignore the schedule and 'over' service our cars..going by the book isn't always the best idea. That interval was for a 3.2 V6 BTW, the other cars do vary.

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default

    My air filter has been in for 50,000 miles.

    To be honest, air filters get more efficient at cleaning air as they trap more dirt.
    Looks like it's going to be changed in a few months then.

    Yeah, it's 4 years for my 1.8 and 4 years or 80k miles for the plugs !! I changed the filter myself a few months ago. It was completely black and the car drove much better with the new filter which was only about 7 quid from the dealer !
