As far as I know the US versions of this part all came with the small/narrow fog/reverse lights (the "two in one" set up) so I suspect part # T2R17428 is what you are after and it's just that the...

It depends on the size of the tyres you now have.
Which way did you go, skinnier tyres on the rear to match the fronts or wider tyres on the fronts to match the rears?
It is odds on they are...

Much easier just to disconnect the earth lead which runs from the negative terminal from where it bolts to the floor.
Also there is a lot of misunderstanding about the stop/start two battery system...

Tork, I suspect you meant Centric PosiQuiet semi-metallic.
I used two different sets of them on my old XFR (same brakes as the F-Type "super performance") for a year or so, and yes they were lower...

In a 2013 XF you will have the Ford EcoBoost 2.0 turbo engine, not the later (late 2016) JLR Ingenium 2.0 turbo.
And even then it will be the older generation EcoBoost which was replaced with a...

It's an 11 year old battery, waaaaaay past retirement age for a Jag!
A rule of thumb I use is for a flooded cell lead acid battery (which yours will be) chuck and replace after four years and...

If the rear tyres really are wider than the fronts (easy to check, just look at the sizes displayed on them) then it is odds on that the rear wheels are also wider than the fronts as this is standard...

I don't mind the lack of feel of the Porterfields in the (very) wet as that is maybe once or twice a year for me, at all other times they are great and they are well worth the dust reduction...

Yep, the 380 mm front brake calipers are made by ATE.
I don't think they are "off the shelf" items and they have been on Jags since at least 2009 (the original XFR) and possibly earlier, I believe...

Never thought of using zip ties myself but thanks for the tip if I ever need to refit the anti-rattle clips and I'm on my lonesome!

Yep, apparently that is another way of doing it (which in fact seems to be the method outlined in the Manual), but I tried that way for hours and hours and it never worked for me.

I am very happy with the pulley and tune.
Zero problems, big boost in power and torque, pulls like a train through to 7,000 rpm plus the added bonus of a lot more SC whine under load.
But be aware...

Yep, the 295s should fit fine. They should also improve the ride and reduce the fender gap fractionally.
Funny thing is when I bought new tyres for the XFR a few years ago I ordered and paid for...

Gotta agree, both my 2010 XFs were still blowing ice cold at 5 and 6 years old and neither had ever had any AC work done on them.

I'm a retired "gentleman of leisure" as well so pretty much any day or night suits me, lunch time is good.
At least I'm not banned from night driving (yet) although the ol' eyesight is going...

If you look at all the pics closely you will see that it is not really slammed, just maybe as low as you would get with H&R springs.
It's fairly obvious that the slammed look pics (like the one you...

Just about any T10 wedge W5W will work fine and they don't need to be canbus compatible.
But smaller/shorter ones like COB will be easier to fit than SMD or Cree which tend to be a bit longish.

Slight problem there, the XF doesn't have the CATS suspension system, rather it has the Adaptive (or Active) Suspension system.
And yours quite possibly doesn't have it, easiest way to check is to...

I don't know a helluva lot about the F-Pace but I believe it uses the same ZF 8HP70 gearbox as the rest of the JLR range.
If so it can easily handle 700 Nm of torque as that is what the 70 in 8HP70...
