That's a huge list! I bet the car feels like a different beast since you bought it. O should say that I've owned my first Jag since April 2017, so I'm fast approaching 2 years of ownership. Besides a good service when I bought the car the only actual items I've needed to do are
4 new tyres
refurbished alternator
crankshaft position sensor
everything else Ive done has been refurbishment work that I've wanted to do, like 700 odd quid on just the ac with new hoses ad that. Still got the rust to sort too.
Can't wait to get new rear dampers on, pretty sure they are the originals, drifts about at high speed and rattles on back end over rutted surfaces

You're right it's a different car now. You can look forward to changing shocks. Mine also had the originals and after I changed them the car felt so much more tight and secure at higher speeds.

Haha.. Glad you like it.
The videos were recorded after I had installed the bracket.

Well.. It was just a matter of finding the correct ones.. The first two pairs were swapped because of faulty maf and o2 sensors a d i was still trying to find the exact culprit for the stalling issues. As soon as this was corrected I decided to go with regular ngk instead of iridium as many reported that the car might dislike these.

I guess iridium plugs would have worked fine once the maf and sensors was replaced.

​​​​​​I've been running the NGK G-power platinums for about 1000 miles and my engine is silky smooth. I didn't want to go with plain copper plugs but with all the warnings I didn't want to spend the $$ on iridium just to risk having to pull them out. They were only $2 and change per plug.
