Last month you told me off for buying a car when I’ve got no central heating.

Now you’re telling me stick it all on red! (Silver)

Yes......but the weather is improving now.

And this is a proper car.

You could get some davits fitted and hang that other 'car' off the rear

All the publicity from the government says that the MOT tester will check whether one is fitted or not.

In practice the first step is that the MOT tester needs to know whether it is supposed to have one or not so that he knows whether to check it, and it is the computer that tells. If the computer doesn't say then he shouldn't care.

My understanding is that the lower particulate emissions numbers came in with Euro 5 which was compulsory in 2009.

As the X350 is Euro 4 and 2006 it seems likely that although it does have a DPF as standard it didn't actually need one legally and the MOT computer won't trigger the tester to check it.


Ok let me clarify, I haven’t removed it (dpf) it has never lit up saying regen, when I’ve connected to it using sds it’s never mentioned that the option to force a regen is there and I don’t see one when I look underneath.

Could be wrong though?

This is a January 2006 registered 55 plate car so again I am assuming no dpf? Plus it doesn’t do a massive purple haze if you boot it on the motorway like most dpf equipped diesels do, it just raises the bonnet and goes faster.

Mine didn't ever light up saying regen (don't think there is a regen light or messsage), nor did it ever make the slightest hint of smoke or haze out of the back (unlike my Discovery fitted with a detuned version of the same engine but no dpf).

 

Mine was an early pre-production press car, 2005 05 reg, fitted with some weird extras (radar cruise, rear audio and tyre pressure monitor) but no sat nav

 

It certainly did have the dpf - and I think you'll find all X350s with diesel engine do too, unless someone's removed it.

 

I know it wasn't a legal requirement at the time, but unlike BMW Audi etc at the time, Jag was taking the lead in having a car that didn't belch clouds of black soot when you booted it.

 

The dpf on mine was 100% reliable in over 40K miles.

Yes the X350 had a DPF from day one, but they can be removed, and it shouldn't fail the MOT IMHO.

If they are used on the motorway occasionally and get the correct low Saps oil then they are reliable.

If you put your diagnostic computer on it and monitor live data you can see the pressure differential across the DPF. If there isn't any then it's maybe been gutted.

To any buyer interested in this it's kind of good news either way. If you want it with DPF then that's fine as long you do sometimes take it on a fast journey and if it's been gutted then it can be reinstated pretty easily, you just put a DPF on it and put the standard maps back in the ECU.

If you don't want a DPF then they are easily disabled for a few hundred quid and I don't think that the MOT will ever be a problem as they are too old for the tester to care.

In my opinion etc

There are a few diesel haters in the X350 forums, and they will tell you to get the V6 petrol.

They will also tell you that the economy is almost as good but it isn't. That said the diesels are not as tough and simple as an old XUD and a lot more complex than the petrol one.

The V8 ones seem to have problems as well and when the chains start rattling it will cost you much more than a diesel timing belt.

But you need to have your eyes open and look after the DPF, and be able to fix issues yourself or know someone who can.

If you can do this then they are an utterly brilliant and beautiful car.

I always loved large saloons I think ever since I drove my uncles SD1 as a teenager, but I also don't want to be like everyone else and drive a 520D, E320 or A6. That's why I had a 607 and after that it had to be an X350 or a C6.

Never, never, never take it anywhere near a Jag dealer though.

Having had diesel and petrol X350s I agree - the diesel is much much better than people give it credit for.

As dieselnutjob says, fuel economy is far far superior in the diesel. Jag were really trying hard with the TDVI - also the service intervals are actually longer on the diesel. I also agree with the advice not to go near Jag dealers - I did that and it was certainly an error.

My tdvi was a bad example but my current X350 has softened my attitude to X350s.

I have the same engine in my disco but slightly less bhp, and there cracking units, they have bags of torque and they even sound quite nice.
