Jim Clark Anniversary – 7th April 2018
Jim Scott travelled up from Newcastle for the event and commented thus:
Hi Rob & Letitia,
Great to see you on Saturday; your hospitality was much appreciated.
We went to Chirnside and actually attended the Memorial Service (didn’t intend to, but OK) and looked at the exhibition at the Community Hall.
On return journey home, stopped at Berwick for latish lunch at Limoncello, at bottom of bank in Berwick…excellent meal.
Overall, a very enjoyable weekend. Everyone so friendly.

Jaguar X358 2.7 TDVi Engine Oil Change
We rely on our X358 Diesel for frequent, long journeys and because we know that the 2.7 diesel engine is susceptible to damage by diesel fuel getting mixed up in the engine oil we keep a close eye on it and change the oil far more frequently than the recommended service interval of 15,000 miles.
The last oil change was 6,000 miles ago, when we also tried out EDT Automotive’s deep cleaning system for the first time.
|The car has now covered 207,272 miles and because we were pleased with the results of the EDT treatment, we have decided to repeat it with every oil change in order to maximise the car’s performance and lengthen the life of the engine.|
|These filters, new (on the left) and after the treatment (on the right) show the amount of contaminant contained within the oil, which would be carried around the engine and with a normal oil change, would be transferred to the new oil.
The EDT process removes these contaminants so that the new oil goes into a far cleaner engine and therefore remains fresh for longer.
|Replenishing the engine with fresh oil after the treatment.|
|Replacing the undertray after it was removed in order to facilitate the EDT treatment, and the oil and filter change.|
|The fixings for the undertray are lubricated to ensure that they do not corrode and seize, and are therefore easy to remove for future maintenance.|
|As an extra precaution, we also replace the fuel filter at every service on our X358 diesel.|
