    Terraclean - anyone ever done it?

    It's a 2010 Jaguar XF - S. a 3.0 twin turbo diesel with 87,000 miles and full Jaguar history. No faults displaying and I've never had any DPF warnings. Ok, that's interesting Ray thanks. I too have read some feedback of people's engines lunching themselves soon afterwards and the Terraclean agent saying "Nout to do with us Jack, not our problem". I think I will probably leave well alone.
  2. There's nothing currently wrong with my car but has Anyone got real world experience of having this done as a preventative maintenance measure? If so, any feedback / comments? I.e. did you notice any difference? Was it worth it? What do they actually do? Do you get to see the results, i.e. the removed debris? Thanks in advance.

    Do you get any kind of error message when this happens and have you tried clearing your cache? If you do get an error message, can you copy and paste it into this thread?

    Just plain wrong!

    Holey Moley...................just one question, WHY would you do that to a Jaguar??
  6. Please see requested below and if interested, contact Alex directly mentioning this forum as the source of the contact. Alex Thaxton (alex@wxve.co.uk ) said: Hello, I'm a director at a film production called WXVE based in King's Lynn. I'm just getting in touch to ask whether any of your members have a MK 1 Escort and would be interested in featuring in an upcoming film which will be released on Influx.co.uk. Influx is an online magazine run by Adrian Flux and videos we create for them usually reach over 100,000 views on Youtube. We're looking to film it on a weekday preferably in the next couple weeks. It would be amazing if this could be passed on to members or if you have anyone in mind I'm happy to get in touch with people. Thank you, Alex Thaxton

    Sky scam

    I get scammed by Sky every goddamn month! They take a shed load of money from my account and in return supply shonky slow broadband and, "40 channels of shit on the TV to choose from" (who sees what I did there? 😎) I keep telling myself I must leave but I don hear great feedback about the other options out there either. Oh, and thanks for the warning.

    Terraclean - anyone ever done it?

    I've owned my daily diesel for 5 years and 67k. I have never added any additive to the fuel but it's serviced annually and does plenty of motorway miles. I too have never had a DPF warning, I just wondered if it's worth doing as a belt an braces type approach.........or if it's just some snake oil type hokum designed to increase profits for the manufacturer.
  12. So, sticking to cars we cater for, let's see the worst you've seen on your travels. I will open the bidding with this Fordarri Capristarrosa that popped up in the OSF twitter feed tonight What were they thinking?

    Chassis number location

    I'm afraid all you can tell from that is that it's a 2 door Escort built at Halewood. AVO cars are BFAT.

    Mk2 Lotus Cortina

    I like the mk2 Lotus in other colours myself, but the white / green look is what people generally associate them with.

    Mk2 Lotus Cortina

    It was restored and repainted in the early 80's so I would wager good money that it's been round the clock at least once and that that mileage is in fact 105000

    Chassis number location

    I'm afraid it's highly unlikely. What is it with the existing two missing digits are the top plates just completely corroded away in that area?

    Mk2 Lotus Cortina

    They fetch strong money too.....but nowhere near the mk1's This one went to auction for £21k in 2015

    Chassis number location

    You need the full chassis number and, as you say, the last two letters are the vital ones for year of manufacture.
