That is the best way to dry 'em off....or at least the most fun!

Good Luck, and PLEASE let us know how you make out with side to side rotation

AS/3 on 19 rims for my 2010 XK Jag and Michelin X Ice for the Buick, the bad weather auto.

I'll be sure to let the forum know of any problems! I did not have to rebalance the wheels, on either auto.

best,

Actually last week, but no time to take pics until today

Fitted A DTUK power control and pedal box.

Makes a world of difference to pedal response and power delivery, next will be a dyno to see if it's made a difference




Tuning box is supposed to give 25PS and 48 ft/lbs torque

https://www.diesel-performance.co.uk/

Yes i do have a before dyno and chose the power box over an ecu flash as

1) Our cars are notoriously hard to tune
2) It can't be overwritten
3) I couldn't find a single poor review of their products (lots on poor tunes though)
4) The German equivalent is TUV approved
5) I can swap it to another car for a small reprogramming charge

Money well spent IMO

I am running it in it's lowest settings on both and my normal drive to work usually delivers 22mpg UK (18.2 US) but since fitting have been getting 26mpg/21.5 but that just might be the electronics fooling the ECU!?

Oil change and brake system flush. Brake pedal still seems to have a bit of play in it before the brakes kick in, so I am taking it back to the dealer tomorrow to have them determine if there is an additional issue with the brakes or if I am just mentally comparing it to my XJL.

Proactive after the valley pipes and the thermostat housing was changed there was a slight spot of steam that would come out of the front grille after a long trip
