    Finally got my Xjr

    I picked up my Xjr yesterday.

    BRG with cream leather, new steel lined engine and all the tensioners renewed with steel items.

    I love it. I'm going to valet it shortly and attempt to get some photos up.

    There are 2 things I'd like help with:

    A dashboard bulb has gone behind the tacho, is this a easy job?

    Also, the leather needs a good clean, what's the best product out there?

    Cheers

    HI im glad you've got the car you wanted. As for a leather cleaner i expect there are many products out there claiming to be the dogs whatsits, but i use baby wipes they have a mild soap solution on them and if they are safe for babys bum then they should be ok for your seats, but i expect there's an expert out there that will differ.

    I would second what Jerry said.

    I bought some highly recommended Gliptone the other week... Absolutely crap. Just made my car stink.

    Don't know about baby wipes though.. They tend to have that horrible smell with them. Don't want my car to smell like a baby's arse...
    Anyone else own a supercharged V8 at 22 just because of Mad Max?

    Thanks guys.

    As soon as I've had chance to give a thorough clean I'll get some pics sorted.

    Thanks for all the advice over the last few months

    Congrats on your JAGUAR XJR
    I dunno, I might also buy one of those considering they're pretty fast and looking classy
