While new to the XK8 list I’ve own Jaguars for 10+ years and been on the XJ6
and XJ40 list equally as long. There is not nearly the traffic on this list
hopefully that is a good sign.
Just having the car a little over a week it is a grand experience thus far.
I have looked through the archives for most information but as didn’t find
what I was looking for.
What are the preferences cleaners/ protectorate for the convertible top?
The local dealership said they do not stock the Jaguar product. Only had 1
display item and the cost was near $200 (wow).
Since no CD ROM is available for the 05MY year I’m considering getting the
04MY one surely lots of the items are similar enough to provide guidance.
The car is still on warranty till 09 I’ll be scrutinizing over it to get
anything corrected plus I purchased and extend warranty for it out to 5
years/100K miles similar to the Select addition warranty.
I’m sort of a hands-on guy and keep my cars. Still have an 88 and 95 MY
cars. Needless to say the 88 gets me the dirtiest finger nails.
Hopefully tires and brakes will be my only concern for the near future.
Any advice or concerns are surely welcome.
