IIRC isn't the problem that a failing thermostat causes the car to run hot, and the resulting hotter coolant causes the plastic impeller to inevitably fail?

I had no apparent issues with the temp sensor, but the thermostat was stuck open. Due to that, the car struggled to reach above 70°C in winter conditions. Summer temperatures were normal from what I...

I have the same NA 4.2 engine. The thermostat was replaced 1 year ago, along with the coolant temp sensor, but hoses, radiator etc should be untouched on my car.

While many seem to consider silver a bit boring, and it can admittedly look a bit flat in direct sunlight, it's my favorite color for most cars, including the XK.

I'm under the impression that on the 4.2 cars, using sport mode only changes the gearbox behaviour, but has no effect on CATS behaviour at all. Is this correct?
Well, of course more aggressive...

No problem! Pulling plastic bits apart is always unpleasant, so I took it exactly for future reference. As can be seen, the white collar on mine was broken, which was why it didn't stay in....

Have you checked this website (http://jagrepair.com/JaguarXKXKR2007NewerElectricalOBDIIcodes.htm)? More specifically the 4000 page "Jaguar XK Service Manual" there.

Some countries may also have additional CO2-based taxes on cars. Finland, for example, where my non-R XK with all its options would've originally cost $191k. That's probably over twice the US price.

Wind noise in the rain

At highway speeds in rainy conditions, I hear a loud (compared to the general noise level) whoosh from around the thin B pillar (coupé) on the driver's side. There's no such noise when it's dry, so...

ZF is the brand as I said, and whether it's 6HP26 or 6HP28 depends on the number of gears you have.

ZF; 4.2 cars should have the 6-speed 6HP26 with a gear stick, while 5.0 cars should have the 8-speed 6HP28 with the rotary gear selector.

If it's heated, you'll have a dedicated button for next to the rear window heater button. If not, I think you just have a large rear window heater button, like the defroster button on the right.
