  1. Earlier
  2. i think it is important to get your car for places that can be trusted. one of my friend recently got a used car from https://www.motorist.sg/used-cars. According to him the price is decent and the condition of the car is good. for those of you who are planning to get used car, maybe can consider getting through them!!
  3. Anyway a brand new hybrid one can be custom ordered from UK include shipping under 2.5k abt 3-4 weeks. Stage 1 - 300-320hp Stage 2 - 340-360hp Our gearbox already almost max out with the Stage 1 unless you have 8HP50 in ur car cannot take stage 2 Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  4. What model is ur car. I upgraded my turbo hence stock one lying ard. Mileage was ard 50k. Need to check my records to confirm. Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  5. Reaction not fast enuff. If its anyway close to BMW would be nice.. Anyway...might try DTUK. But gotto get the 8HP 8HP serviced first. My custom ordered forged aluminium 8HP filter(serviceable) transmission oil sump finally arrived. Suppose to function as a heat sink to maintain ATF temp at optimal operating temp between 85 to 110 deg. EA Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk

    ZF8HP Gearbox tuning

    At Dynamic or Normal drive mode, the manual will be switched to Auto after a short while. Only when you are in S Mode, the manual will stay as manual until you decide otherwise.
  7. So here is an update, I took it to another person I know in the trade who `loves a challenge`, he has checked it through and checked the wiring etc and he is 80% sure the fault is with the electronic unit on the turbo sending an incorrect signal to the EGR. He has narrowed it down to the turbo on the o/s, so does anyone know of the best and cheapest place to buy a turbo?
  8. I tink the engine size diff is 50%.
  9. Actually, juz press on the up shift gear paddle and hold for a while then it will switch back to Auto.
  10. DTUK has OBD flash tools for the 8HP. I used it and it does feel a little better, though still not as sharp as what I've experienced when I test drove the 335i with the same tranny.
  11. I am in Custom tune....Upgraded turbo...fueling...upgraded cooling for 8HP hence only drawback is Gearbox for a fun drive Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  12. Problem is dynamic if use paddle shift not sharp enuff and the software Jaguar run stuck at manual dun automatically switch back to auto.. BMW automatically goes back to Auto mode if u reach final drive for a while Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  13. Heavy foot Gentlemen is the focus market for Jaguar. Jaguar's sales slogan (1950) was "Grace, Space, Pace" Mine avg 9-10L/100km on good days.....16L/100km on others.... EA Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  14. Anyone else find the ZF 8HP not sharp enuff? I also own a BMW 2 series that runs the same gearbox...so much sharper. EA Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  15. Hello Its really up to individual. Key consideration is cost if keeping on the road. 1) Scrap value 2) COE 3) Repairs Eg Aircon compressor (abt 600), Diesel high pressure pump abt (2k), Shocks (abt 800), All the worn bushings and mounts (abt 4k), hub bearing (abt 400), Timing chain/belt and water pump (abt 1k), Gearchange knob known to be worn and need replacement (abt 500) EA Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
  16. Hello all, Would like to seek opinion is possible to keep XF2.2D up to 10 year or even renew COE as my car is 7.5 years and meliage is 110K only. Still on relatively good condition. Thank you for your feedback.
  17. Looking to buy a Jaguar XJ 2015 or newer model. Please PM to discuss. Sincere buyer.
  18. https://www.rrtforged.com/ Factory is in Loyang. Shop front is in Macpherson.
  19. I love Jaguar but I’m ready to throw in the towel, at least until they get this “Restricted Performance” thing figured out. I have a Jaguar XF Supercharged, it has displayed the message for the last 2+ yrs now, bigger problem is Jaguar doesn’t even know what causes it.. different for each vehicle. They are going to drag you through a lengthy trail n error process at your expense unless under warranty and the signal is bound to come right back. Mine rides fine all winter but when the weather gets warmer it happens more frequently, I’ve replaced all cooling related parts, and some. I can only ride short distances and have to be sure not to push it too hard, otherwise I’m just cruising with barely any power. I’m car shopping now, problem is nothing has the combination of power & luxury like my Jag...
  20. You cleared the code, but before that you got the error code checked? What did it say? Clearing the code does not solve the problem. If you have modded or put in piggyback, "CEL" and "Restricted Performance" is likely to appear. Incidentally, XF 2010 onwards have not much problem based on what I can see in our group of kakis. You need to identify the root of the problem you are seeing now. Once resolved you should have a rewarding ride.
  21. I just dont know what is going on with this car, losing confidence in it and Jaguars in general. There seems to be alot of these threads on various forums..... I have had the battery checked, underload aswell, all ok. I had the codes cleared and light doesnt appear on idle or even at slow speed, but the 1st time I speed up the `Restricted Performance` message comes up along with `DSC Not Available`. The codes that has come back is `P0489 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Control Circuit A Low`. So I am at a loss as to what the issue is, and why it would affect the DSC..... Any further suggestions welcome although I feel a trip to the robbing buggers at Jag might be on the cards.
  22. Wow an XF 2.7. Seen them in Europe but didn't know we have that here. Thought they only bought 3Ls. Which workshop did you go to? Is it a Jaguar specialised workshop? IF not, I suggest you go to Autobolt. I believe they can help you identify problem. I have been to them few times before with Restricted Performance, and they could fix it. Now with CB, call to make sure they are open before you go.
  23. You can try Autobolt. Call to ask.
