Yes, I confirm : with this new email address, Carroll replies very quickly. Thanks ! 👍🏻
So, I hesitate : that’s 280£, but am I going to be able to mount it ?
Have you done it yourself ? What is tricky ?
How does it look like once finished ?

Yes did it myself and I’m 71 so if I can do it I’m sure most people can the tricky part is seeing all the wires, but they all have a place you can’t put them into the wrong sockets,the panels come off quite easy with a £3.99 panel removing kit from amazon, the hardest part is threading two cables through the flexi pipe between tailgate and body,but no where near as hard as I thought it would be , and there are people on this thread that will have now fitted them so if you need help just ask we will offer help, just be aware that you may be or may not be charged import duties, still astounding why Jaguar don’t fit these on all models as the tailgate is ton weight and when the original gas struts get worn then it’s going to be really hard work to open , the power kit is a revelation for me , good luck in whatever you decide to do ,if you need any more information don’t hesitate. John

No, 16$ is the Paypal fee.
78$ is the shipping.
Total : 461$
They proposed to add the foot captor (value 96$) but I don’t care and I just want to reduce my budget. (I’m a bit short, after Xmas... 😜)
