The only paint code I can find is 1AF - and it is metallic, so definitely IRR :)

Trim level is PDE - there's also a GH after that, but not sure if that is part of the code or not.

19" rims Aquila type.

Thought I might have folding mirrors after reading the manual yesterday, but when pressing the two mirror adjustment buttons does nothing......so obviously not that option!

It's an added level of fun finding about the exact options on my car - although when it came to what dealers stated their cars had, and what their cars actually had, much of it seemed to be copy and paste, and you really had to look closely at any car to work out what it actually had (and I obviously missed a few things!).

In the two Jaguar TSB’s (Vertical Scratches On Door Windows) that I posted earlier in this Topic, the first one (dated 15/06/2016) shows the new Waist Seal part numbers T2R 24144 (left side) / T2R 24143 (right side).

The second one (dated 20/02/2018) shows the part numbers were superseded and for my car they are T2R 25504 (right side) / T2R 25508 (left side).

T2R 25504 is what I had fitted by the main dealer in early 2020.

The colour does look different to the IRR shown in these links....

However, the OP has stated the paint code is 1AF (shown on the UK near side ‘B’ pillar label) which is indeed IRR. Perhaps it’s the way the light is catching it or picture quality etc? Unless it’s had a respray?

The V6S came with 19 inch wheels as standard and also the open mesh bonnet vents on MY16 (as per the OP’s pic).

Here's another photo of IRR. This is the same car as the one in the second link provided by RSPN, using the same camera (Pixel phone).

IRR changes significantly in different light conditions.

So, I took my car to Stratstone - as it was due its MOT and service and - via the Jaguar website it was the cheapest of the regular service intervals.

Aside from me booking a Saturday (through the Jag website) - when I turned up, they had booked me Tuesday....I left the car there - apparently needed new pads (£220 ish) and they suggested new discs (£500 ish), which they didn't have parts for. It's now Thursday, and they've just phoned me up to say one of the steering column bolts has sheered (though why they only see it on Thursday, and when they were working on rear pads and discs I don't know) - but have suggested 3 hours of labour and £600 for one bolt - which in anywhere apart from the UK apparently is a recall issue.......I told them to jump and will be taking it somewhere else that don't charge £600 to change a bolt. They did offer to change all of them for me at the same time........I see there is already a change.org petition for similar bolts shearing on other JLR products. I am reminded of the Harry Enfield sketch "I saw you coming"...

So despite my car being booked - even according to them on Tuesday - still haven't got my car back......lovely...

(note still enjoying the car itself though!)

Well, two years into owning my V6S. Still enjoying it - came back to this post as my next job is to get the windows done........

It was quite an expensive car last year - after being serviced by Jaguar, I had to get the bolts on the power steering replaced (and on the drip tray), and then they noticed it had an oil leak, and a water leak - a few weeks later the usual pipe burst, so got that replaced (the garage insisted on proper Jag parts, rather than the aluminium after-market), oil leak fixed (it was the gasket), new water pump as a precaution, and new auxiliary belt.

Then it was some new tyres (to go with the new pads and discs on the back). Having changed the pads and discs on my other car (Mazda 3), I might change the pads and discs, when needed on the front myself.

It went to France and back last year - lots of nice comments from people, which was nice :). So next things to do are windows (I'm fed up of the scratches), maybe the Android Auto from I think Unique Audio - mainly because all my family's phones drop out on the bluetooth erratically. Then maybe a private plate....(cheap one!).

Other small niggles - the spoiler is a bit squeaky when it drops back down, I get the odd warning - often when starting the car I get a swift "stability control" warning. Last year the warning of choice was the SOS warning, two weeks ago I got (when driving round Swansea) the dynamic function warning - which could be the ride height sensor apparently - it went after restarting the car, and hasn't come back yet......also weirdly I find that the drainage channel around the boot seems to get quite dirty and green, much more than any other car I have owned...and the bit of rubber that holds the petrol cap in place has broken - although now I have cleaned the drain that area out, I don't have a little pool of wafer in the petrol cap well anymore!

How difficult is it for someone to change the glass themselves, or should I order the parts and then get a garage to install them?

Reports on the US forum suggest that Jaguar has been fitting aluminium pipes to the run-out models, so they should be available from the parts department.

How old is your battery? Random warnings can be due to low battery voltage, so make sure it's fully charged before attempting any diagnostics. I don't know how old your car is (out some details in your signature!) but if it's on the original battery and is getting on a bit, it could be a sign that the battery may be due for replacement.
