I've moved your question from New Member Area - Intro a MUST to Jaguar Forums Feedback & Suggestion Centre forum. This is the place to post questions ABOUT THE FORUM.

What are you trying to find and what search criteria are you using?

A forum search on 'transmission fluid' returns 20 pages of threads across almost all the forums. It's a very wide search term so not surprisingly it returns a large number of threads with relevant content.

Refining the forum search to 'transmission fluid + X308' returns 5 pages mainly in X308 forum with some in CLASSIFIEDS.

Still further refining search detail using 'transmission fluid + X308 + change' returns 3 pages of threads/posts.

An alternative approach is to use Google with 'jaguarforums + search criteria'. The more detail you put in the criteria, the better the results become filtered and relevant.
