    Replaced the 2014 CT 200h Advance...

    Mines Ultimate Black hence while I felt the need to get it done. Paint finish on my 2015 model is now better than the new cars that show up at our coffee mornings 🙂

    Terrific colour, have you considered having it Ceramic coated? I had my Jaguar done and also added a clear protective wrap on the front panel. It's been 2 years now and sparkles like new with just a light wash the water runs straight off and it is also stone chip free on the front end.

    Alarm

    You may jest, but having spent 27yrs in Australia it wouldn't be the first time I had found a snake in a vehicle. Of course it was me setting the motion sensor off then 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️ Happily it is all back to normal so I guess it was the Moth after all lol! Thanks for the help

    Alarm

    Interesting when I was cleaning the car out today I found a small moth sitting on the Dash, seems very small to trigger the alarm though. But it hasn't gone off since I removed it 😂

    Alarm

    Thanks Colin ours went off for no apparent reason last night first at about 8.30pm and again just after midnight. We were at home to turn it off but just wondered if we had not been there, how long it would have been going for. Lexus dealer is about 45min drive from us and could be a problem if I had to leave it there, although we do have approved warranty. Service is not due until April so I will see if it becomes a regular problem or was just a one off before booking it in. If you have any likely causes would appreciate the info Thanks Norman

    Alarm

    Wondering if anyone knows how long the alarm sounds for before stopping, if the car is disturbed while locked

    Hybrid Badges

    Interesting you should say that I had MB caps on my SL and Jag caps on my RSport, both took a walk when parked in the city. Still nice to be in a position that you can replace them instead of being in the position you need to pinch them 🙂

    Hybrid Badges

    No repair done, the outline of the previous badge was still visible upon close examination. Perhaps it was eased off by a collector lol!

    Hybrid Badges

    The new one they sent is on and rock solid, need to make sure it's in the right position though as you only get one chance lol!

    Hybrid Badges

    No repair work has been done, so I presume it fell off or was taken by someone. Still the nice Lexus salesman is getting me one F.O.C sorted 🙂

    Hybrid Badges

    Hi Guy's I just wanted to confirm that there should be a Hybrid badge on both rear doors. I only have one on the nearside rear door. I have the forecourt pics pre purchase and there isn't one one the drivers side, so if there should be one I will chase the salesman for a freebie lol!

    DAB radio interference

    So cracked on and eventually made progress today albeit probably the long way round, as the nav book was of little help and refreshing DAB just came back with no signal. What I found worked for me was to go into DAB and select Manual, I then pressed the right arrow on the dash (between the Radio & Media buttons). Once it had searched and found a clear channel, I toggled right to the next page with the joy stick, selected preset from the menu and pressed and held down on the joystick and it preset that channel to number 1 I returned to manual, right arrow to next channel and repeated the presets another five times. Once I had my six preset channels showing on the preset screen and had selected one to play, I toggled right again and selected Stations from the menu this brings a drop down list of all the stations on whichever preset channel is selected. So even though it was a long winded effort from an old timer lol! I now have 6 preset channels all of which provide a number of station each and at the moment seem unaffected by the dash camera.🤞 fingers crossed

    DAB radio interference

    I think it is probably a set up problem as much as anything else. It only shows a handful of stations on a Hereford & Worcs channel, whereas the DAB on the Jag, lists Multi Channels and loads of stations. Of course the CT Nav book is about as much use as a candle in a storm for information on the unit, which seems quite common for Japanese produced cars. I think the books lose a lot of information when being translated into English, where many other foreign car makers tend to do a stand alone language publication. Too hot to sit out there and mess with it today but will try and get into it when I have a bit more time and patience, it's been a hard day and I need beer lol!
  15. So our DAB radio seems a bit hit and miss, sometimes works great and sometimes no signal. I recently had a Nextbase Duo camera fitted and noticed when no signal and I turned the Cam off it came back on. Not convinced it is purely down to the Cam though as it had happened before I had the Cam fitted on a couple of occassions. FM is fine so happy using that but have noticed when travelling any longer trips in the XF that DAB seems more stable than FM. Any help appreciated, Thanks
