    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default

    If you want to go down the VX dealer route, and you don't have to, have you tried those over in Nuneaton??

    What's wrong with Martin Rumble?? I have used them for warranty work, and can't really say I have been impressed, especially with their attention to detail. They talk a good talk, but don't always deliver on customer satisfaction, from my experiences anyway.


    Personally, I'd go VAT registered independent using genuine VX parts. That way it won't invalidate any warranty and it will save you some cash.

    Just out of interest what price have you been quoted ?
    I rang my local steeler and got a price of £229 for my second service...They also told me they would be fixing my handbrake

    ste
    The main reason i take mine to the steeler for servicing is so i can get them to have a proper look at the car and if anything is wrong that is under warrenty they will fix it.... Well thats my plan

    When that runs out its off to the local garage for all its work

    i have had a far bit of work done with steve crooks mechanic at lmf who you know you can trust and was very pleased. i might try him it`s just that i have to hang around whilst it`s being done.
