    Default Red TI query

    I read somewhere that the red TI ind indicated that the 1.9 is the 16v 150 bhp model, yet my v5 shows a 120 model and I have a red ti. Ex-Fleet car, so cant believe the previous owner has modded it.

    Can anybody shed any light on this (I.e I am probably talking out of my ar$e)

    Check which side your engine oil cap is on mate - it's on the right side of the engine, it's a 150; left hand side, it's a 120...

    If I stand in front of the bumper (Nearside on my right), this is the side that my oil filler is on.

    In that case mate you need to speak to the DVLA because it's a 150. It does happen that they get registered wrong, but it also means your insurance may be invalid...

    Well, bit of a backhanded bonus for me then, more powerful engine, but dearer insurance!!

    before this conversation had happened, if I was to be involved in an accident, where would I stand legally? I would have insured using the data that I was provided by DVLA!

    It's up to you to check unfortunately... I expect it would depend on the insurance company, but it certainly wouldn't help your case...

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default

    BUT, could you reasonably know that the info was duff on the V5C was duff?

    Personally, I think you would have gotten away with it, as it is not obvious and not readily known to be either an issue (ie mis registration happens) or the differences and ways to identify the differences either.

    I don't think they would even find out themselves if they did look. We know all about such things but an insurance company would look for modifications from standard and there aren't.

    I have often wondered if you bought a "second hand" car that had say a re-map. But the seller did not tell you about it, so in effect you would not know there was one on it, what would happen if it was ever found out, perhaps after a "smash"?.
