Welcome to the latest Xclusively Jaguar News Round Up!
This month’s cover picture is courtesy of Colin Manconi and features former Jaguar Director of Engineering, Jim Randle, who can put his name to many projects but is chiefly remembered for XJ220 and XJ40, and Keith Helfet, who designed a number of stunning Jaguars, the most famous being XJ220. Jim and Keith have graciously accepted my invitation to become patrons of Xclusively Jaguar.
With this being the last issue for 2017
I would like to wish everyone who reads Xclusively Jaguar News
a Very Merry Christmas !!!

|Revised Crank Sensor Bracket||Hi Letitia,
Thank you very much for writing this article. It is very helpful to get such an endorsement from such a well-known member of the Jaguar community.
Regards, Andy Stodart
|Ian Stewart Tribute||Hi Letitia,
What a lovely article and I thank you for your flattering comments.
I am thrilled that David liked it so much – when I didn’t dream he would see it – or even existed!
If you could send me a copy I would love to keep that.
Very best thoughts
Les Hughes, Editor, Jaguar Magazine
|After reading Jaguar F-Pace or XJ Saloon? featured in the May 2017 issue of Xclusively Jaguar News, Art Williams wrote in with his thoughts on the F-Pace ….||As the recent purchaser of a 2 litre F-Pace R Sport and I have to say that I totally concur with your observations. I have taken to selecting SNOW mode on the auto box to try and tame the manic surges that it produces. I had a manual Discovery Sport as a courtesy car for a few days and it was so much quieter and more controllable. I downloaded an app. to measure the noise and the Disco was 46dB at idle and 50dB at initial take-off. The F-Pace is 56dB at idle and 65dB at take-off. I wanted a petrol engined car but Taggarts Motherwell couldn’t tell me when it would be available. Now that the petrol is available, Jaguar are charging a £1000 plus premium over the diesel.
|X300 Service Guide
Just wanted to pass on my appreciation to you for reproducing Kim Henson’s X300 Service Guide.
It’s the most comprehesive, helpful and useful guide to the x300 I’ve come across bar the various forums which tend to deal with specific issues.
Thanks again and keep up the good work with Xclusively Jaguar.

Hello once again,
Thanks for your efforts with all the news, a really good read .
Kind Regards Dafydd Jones-Evans, Spain
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for diving into my E type [at Shelsley Walsh] and offering effort and advice to get me back running. I did manage to get home without any problems, although it was a bit fraught waiting in the (hot) queue to get past Chateau Impney and on to the (cool) safety of the motorway.
Best regards, Tim Haviland
Thanks, Letitia for another great read. I just love the picture of your grandsons. You’re starting them young!
Best wishes to you and Rob,
