Also B post stainless cover would have been an option or dealer fit, (door window surrounds are still black) as would the bodyside mouldings and the pin stripe which looks to be double not the correct single one.

It just shows either they don’t know, or they think buyers don’t know?


Both.... a dealer should know better though and could have done some research beforehand especially at that price and I presume a large profit margin. It's not easy for buyers either, knowing what each car should/shouldn't have is a long learning process and even longer for us with spec OCD :lol: Even Jaguar publications get it wrong, I have pulled a couple up recently but they seem to be beyond help although one did publish my correction letter so fair play ;)

I remember phoning a UK dealer's garage about 10 years back to ask the mechanics about the Teves system and he was lost as they never worked on them. Thanks I discovered the forum... :lol:

Oh, it’s JEB! Another car which can’t seem to find a home. It’s spent a good amount of time up in the north of Scotland so anyone that’s interested should check it out properly
