  1. plenty of stations carry euro 5 diesel, too numerous to list, but most main stream stations like Shell, Petronas, Petron, Bhp etc all list euro 5 diesel stations on their respective malaysian websites. did you buy your car recently? 2nd hand by any chance?
  2. sure, will pm, no worries zenkinz
  3. 1. regeneration burn of soot particles when the sensors detects a preset build up and the car is driven for 15-20mins above 70-80kmh. these figures are generic and may differ from car to car depending on manufacturer preset parameters. 2. in most modern diesel engines and modern day good syn engine oil do not suffer from oil dilution to be of any significant level unless the engine is poorly maintained. this fear/myth are from olden pre Euro 5 era.
  4. no worries and dun say that.... my car was bought during high COE days ie approx 90k, my car was bought at 230k. by selling it at 5yr mark i get maximum PARF back and COE at 5yrs returns me close to 45k. coincidentally current new COE are at 50-55k. so logic prevail that if i continue i have a high depreciation car for 5yrs or sell it and just the COE rebate alone i can nearly get a new 10yr COE. PARF at 5 yrs is max and will go on a sliding scale till the end. so unless there is a robust 2nd hand market over paying for used Jags, it will be on a sliding scale every year till the end and all i get is a portion of the OMV thats all..
  5. ahhhh yes... but OMV brand new factored, i just think scrap at 10yrs figure you using a bit optimistic. still... a 2yr old at 147k is VERY good value... IMHO just prob not 14.5k depr
  6. errrrrr... 147k with 8yrs left ya? thats a depreciation of 18.3k not 14.5k per yr
  7. I suspect so... the forums got updated recently... got to ask admin of forum
  8. http://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=661787&DL=2192 now using my 2nd car... sob sob
  9. wearnes has it pros and cons. I tried outside service after my warranty at Autobolt... Ok for me. and yet some also say Autobolt has pros and cons. so not really true on what you said until you try both...
  10. no such thing... i did remember it under another title though
  11. Haizzzz... my dear XF is leaving by end of July.... just signed on the dotted line. a victim of singapore high COE and PARF system, car was still good and all singing and dancing... but crunching numbers just made sense to let it go. replacement is a 7 seater KIA sorrento GT. maybe in 1-2yrs after i drop the other car i will return for a Jag 2 seater..... I love the Jag.
  12. Hi guys, mostly i just add water to my windscreen washer. after awhile i guess its all water in there. Just wondering if any members can share any good washer liquids they use? rain x? etc? I see in autobacs the types and prices vary from $2.99 to $19.90... so abit lost.
  13. i have used them to fix smaller dents, all good and respray colors match up nicely
  14. FYI 2013 XF does NOT have auto boot open or close, thus no such thing as button to set open/close height. Only new 2016 XF has this new function. for earlier models you can check and re-calibrate the open/close pump/rods and see if you can improve the boot lid opening.
  15. Ok. Mine is a 2012-2013 xf 2.2D. Warranty over. Only outstanding issue was start stop inop due start stop batt. Nothing major. Last service all ok. Yesterdat driving on road got 3 msg flashed. ABS FAIL DSC UNAVAILABLE EMERGENCY BRAKE ASSIST NOT AVAILABLE Called Autobolt and zoom there for car doctor visit. Pls be advised that their schedule is full for cny. Computer report one front wheel speed sensor error. So ABS self shut down. Phew lucky not whole system inop. Parts on order.
  16. try it in your parking lot when no one around... move the car around and you can see the red box flash at diff areas for fwd or aft sensors
  17. ok your front sensors when activated will flash red on the reverse cam view on the upper right and left. hope that helps
  18. for the TDI, you are best to keep within boost range for the pick up..... at 1100rpm@80kmh your car engine has drop out of the boost range and maintaining a 'cruise' mode or sorts. so to take advantage of your diesel's torque, just lift off the pedal a fraction of a second, the rpm will drop and transmission will drop to lower gear and you can now pedal down and zoom off... in my 2.2D XF i find the sweet spot around 2500-3200rpm. if you are too heavy footed it will also not work too well as beyond the range the diesel acceleration is pretty flat. hope it helps.
  19. i would not pin my hopes on it. since the early XF versions, the map/nav features have always been outsourced by Jag. since 2012, my version has not had a ASIA update. all updates concentrate on EU and US. so until they do it in house or join up with a map/nav provider who updates ASIA regularly, you pay for update also useless.
  20. I changed to ATS 19 inch and Pzero 245/50/19. from an average of 700-800km per tank I saw a drop to 600-650km per tank. not 100% its due to tyre/rim or is it my drive style more 'garang' after change to stylo rims.
