COuld this not be related to the HVAC drain duckbill being clogged? In the UK the drivers seat is on the right.

I would normally agree that you want the later model years of a particular engine, but in the case of the 4.2L AJV8, I don't think there were ever many engine problems. What parts were updated?

So, as it turns out, I was able to get the clips back on without removing the wheels by gently prying on them with a flathead screwdriver.

Did XKRs (2007+) ever come with wood wheels? I never really liked the look on the XK, but I notice the ones that have wood wheels are almost exclusively XKs and not XKRs.

So when you say you're at WOT, are you saying you're mashing the pedal to the floor, past the detent?
