    Hi Steve--
    From your posts, seems like you're a Jag tech (and quite knowledgeable), so I'm here in the US with a question. My car's got about 20K miles on it now. Got a "restricted performance" recently - was driving the car sorta hard, higher RPM than normal, aggressive downshifts. The car started running rough, would missfire and begin to stall if I accelerated at all. Limped it home. Had to drive it the next day and did so gently, it seemed fine, no warning light, nothing. Next drive: no warning light, but it did seem like it was missing/sputtering if I hit the gas at all, but was able to drive at 75MPH no problem. Next drive, light on again - this time, accelerating from low speed. It was VERY hot out, and the Restricted light went on right away. Now it's at a Jag dealer, and they're claiming it's an injector. (Also, that they want to replace them all). Does this sound right?
    Sorry for rambling. Any insight you could offer would be much appreciated.

    Hi Steve, I bought the car from a gentleman in Brisbane in July. He was the original owner, full history and just 34,000km. He had just bought a new m6 4 door. If you look at the pictures in my gallery you will see the ones he took to sell it outside his house with the QLD plates. Then there are a couple when it got to her new home outside my house. I'm off to Carnivale today at Parramatta park. Usually go each year into Macquarie St but they have moved it this year. Looking forward to seeing plenty of beautiful cars and old cats.
    Cheers Ben
