I know it's an online service book, far easier to put "stamps in the book" than "electrinically recorded service record accessible and printable from Jaguar website or your dealer"Dave W said:Re: Service

No issue with warranty if genuine parts are used and the correct specification of oil. The difference between the two is the hourly rate and the markup on parts. I find using a local independent results in a more thorough service with wheels off, calipers checked and eased etc. A franchised dealer wants it in and out as quickly as possible and on to the next so only cursory visual inspections are carried out.
Where it might hurt, is were you to sell privately in the future you wouldn't have the Jag stamps in the book but what you lose in the desirability of that, you'd have saved in servicing anyway.
Jag stamps in the book ?
What book ?
It's an on line service book that they print out and give you.
If your car is still under warranty then you have to be very careful in not going to a JLR dealership for a service. Best read your warranty conditions !luis88 said:Also, would anyone entertain not going back to Jaguar to do the service? Just looked online and can get a 1 year service for around £130. That's more than half the price?!
