Hi Dave – Just wanted to say thank you for the great service and arrangements to accommodate my order being delivered on time!I really appreciate it. The parts arrived on time at Francesca’s and I received them last week. They are installed. The upper piece does not seem to clip in properly although I think it’s the frame and not the part. However it all looks new again.

I will be in touch during the year for other parts.

Best wishes, and I highly recommend DCR Autoparts for a great customer experience.

Dave, Just to let you know, the XK8 Sports Exhaust system parts shipment arrived and all is accounted for and correct. Thank you for your service, and especially your patience in my tricky order. I whole heartily recommend you service on the Jaguar Forum.

David in Bahrain


Dave I hope you are well. I collected my XKR on Friday evening, and I just wanted to let you know that the leather seat covers are fantastic. There’s a small amount of sag which I am putting down to the fact the seats themselves must have aged and misshapen over their 21 years of use, but the match to the rear seats is incredible and overall I’m delighted. I’m now interested in ordering some black mats

Just a note to Thank you!

Thanks again!

Hello. Dave
relating to the XK8 XKR (X100) stainless steel rear big bore link pipes and large oval finishers I purchased recently, I am very pleased with this rear tail pipe conversion. Easy to fit and the exhaust note is just right. Not too loud under acceleration and almost silent when cruising.


Brian H in the UK


Hi Dave regarding the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) I purchased from you,  I just wanted to let you know that it only took me 10 mins  to change & about 15 mins to set it up and so far so good, it hasn’t gone into limp mode since. If anyone is having a tps problem I would recommend trying this first before spending 100s on a new throttle body. Thanks for your help.

All the best – Jamie C in the UK

Ref – Jaguar XK8 XKR Wind Deflector with Coloured Leather Look Finish Surround.

Great news is that the deflector is now fitted and is superb, looks really good on the car and I am so pleased with the final outcome. I tried it out the other day, cold and dry, 3 degrees. With the heater into the footwell and the deflector in place it was great, no back drafts and I was still warm. Speed up to the limit ( of course) plus a little and it was fine.

The colour match is fantastic.

Once again so many thanks for the time and effort to get the unit, when you see the result I hope you feel it was worth it, I certainly do.

Have a great Christmas and a Prosperous New Year

Peter G 2003 XK8 Convertible.

Jaguar XKR Front Silencer and Over Axle pipes

Hi Dave.

Thought you might like to know, I had the exhaust fitted yesterday and it has enhanced the sound in a very pleasing way. It did fit but with only a few millimetres clearance over the axle I’m told but that is probably due to my rear pipes being slightly different to your set up. All is good so many thanks for your great service and product.

Hello Dave

Finally got time to fit your supplied exhaust on to the wife’s XK8 a couple of weeks ago, she is very pleased with how it sounds, it has a really nice deep tone from the out side, and is not intrusive inside the cabin, on a recent trip up to London she deliberately took a detour so she could drive though a tunnel !!! it was a pleasure doing business with you and i wouldn’t hesitate referring your company to others.

Kind Regards
