Re: New passenger wiper blade

I think you've done well if the original blades are still fitted. My DS is also June 17 & I'm now on my 3rd set ! That's down to damage from crows pecking at them rather wear & tear. I usually buy the Bosch Aerotwin blades - which you can get as a pack of driver side & passenger side for @ £18-£22. ...

Millenium Croydon Indie Service - any good ?

Hi all I just received some unsolicited mail from an Independent JLR servicing agent called Millenium. They're based in Croydon - and charge £341 for a first service & £419 for a second service for the DS. I've got a service contract , so I will be using my local dealer for now - but I might conside...

Hi Mike
I contacted the dealer who sent LR assist to me and after a software up date the problem disappeared

Thanks Mark
my dealer did suggest that I contact LR assist if the problem recurred - but as yet it hasn't.

Let's see if it behaves for next 2 weeks

does it select the other gears at the time the fault appears ? .....that would certainly point to selector if so.
Thanks Barnsh

Unable to select Reverse on Auto Box

Hi all I've recently been unable to select Reverse on a couple of occasions. I would go to select Reverse as normal - but the selector just will not move into gear. I've had to turn off ignition off & back on & then I can select Reverse quite easily - but obviously that's a little inconvenient if it...

When dpfs were first fitted to the FL2 I was told by a LR Experience instructor that they had switched to premium fuel to avoid dpf problems. I know that's purely anecdotal but you may find it relevant. Thanks It seems more likely to me that IF there ARE is any effects of using premium fuel, then o...

Re: Album artwork

Hi RPR do you mean when playing music from USB key ? I don't think the DS checks on Gracenote for the artwork - I think it's done when you copied to USB originally. A small file is added to each album directory - but it seems a bit hit & miss. About half of my albums have artwork - when I tried to r...
