I also added the new Union Jack center caps that came in for Christmas, but I couldn’t resist.

Well my OCD got the best of me this morning. Space heaters to warm the garage and a blow dryer to heat the calipers. Lol

Added shift paddle extensions to my ‘09 XKR Portfolio. Simple 1 min install with 2 way tape, they are nice and secure and add a bit of sportiness to the interior. Cheap as they were only $22 shipped on the big auction site. They are aluminum and coated with a rubbery grippy feeling coating. Very happy with this simple mod!

"Newer" maybe but not "up". IMHO your X150 is much "nicer" than an F-type, its just not as new, but then I'm prejudiced.

Newer and faster doesn't make it better for me.

A big thanks to Sean W since I picked up his set of Tamana wheels & had them powder coated (Prismatic Kingsport Grey with a clear coat on top)! The darker color off-sets the Polaris White and is much more dramatic than the stock look. I'm tickled with this new look but am now torn on having the calipers powdered too for it's tougher finish.

The wheels look fabulous! I chickened out at the last minute from the gray, and stayed silver although slightly darker then OEM.

Im also interested in the caliper P-C as well. Please let us know how that goes, how much of a PITA it is removing them, and do they have to be rebuilt after the PC.?

Old stuff, and nowadays they are a bit more difficult to find the actual JAGUAR ones, as Trademarks and such have been enforced more-so lately.

The identical item is available for $8.28 delivered on AliExpress, but shipping from China will take longer than 3 days.



Sorry, I couldn't get the link to work.
