[modern] jaguar parts

No doubt we could come up with a whole host of oem parts at about half the
price 'cause they don’t come in a green box.

Here Here! Bravo! Brilliant! That’s exactly what’s going on, and precisely why
our little Internet-Jaguar community is so valuable. Each of us ‘discovers’
neat things about how to fix our cars and/or source parts that are as good or
better than factory and shares this info with everyone. The Internet has really
changed things, hasn’t it?

BTW, I am not one of these ‘the factory is always right’ kind of people.
Compromises are made in building a car for economic reasons. Therefore, I
beleive we can make safely modifications/upgrades to the ‘sacred’ Jaguar factory
configurations if they are proven by the experience of others.

Hi,all
I agreed you guys concerning a Jag parts!When i was thinking to buy
abs wheel sensors,my garage told that dealer was charging 2000
Finnish marks!Shit,i was very angry about that price.So i was wonde
ring that manufacturer of brakesystem is Bosch,then i went to local
Bosch repair center and ask those wheel sensors.They checked cata
logs and found p/n of sensors and said 988 FIM per sensor and orde
red from Germany.2 days later i got both sensors.(no green box) So
i saved a little money!
