  1. Intro

    Thanks for the welcomes. I was actually very much looking forward to join this trip and get a good look around the country. Even though I have been here for 5 years there are many parts of the UAE I still haven't been to. Unfortunately I am doing a training course from Thursday to Sunday so I won't be going this time. I hope there will be another trip like this in not too long.
  2. Intro

    Although I have been in Dubai since 2012 I just joined this community a few days ago. Looking forward to be part of it and meet other enthusiasts. My daily driver is currently a Volvo XC90 V8 which was originally imported from the US. Apart from that I have a 2009 Jaguar XKR that I just got registered and is currently having its AC fixed. I also have an old Jag XJR (1998) that used to be my daily driver but it is now parked as it needs a bit of TLC. My 1991 Ferrari 348 and the 1993 LandCruiser are also both parked for the moment waiting for a couple of issues to be sorted. As you probably understand, I like older (for Dubai at least) cars that I can work on myself. I am very interested in getting in touch with others that do the same. Alf
  3. 1998 XJR ECU programming

    Thanks to both. Derick: I'll try Chipcentric in the morning as they seem to be gone for the day. Desertdude: I have tried the Mongoose interface but it doesn't support ECU programming on the X308. Apparently there is a different interface needed. Was hoping to get the programming done here in Dubai to avoid lots of shipping costs. Have spent a few dirhams on the car already...... Cheers
  4. Hi, I have an old (for Dubai) Jaguar XJR that I have used as my daily driver for a couple of years. I've always loved the shape of the XJ's with the double round headlamps and bought this one in a relatively ok condition a few years back. Recently I started having issues with the engine control module and I purchased a used one to replace the faulty one. I have replaced the module but now it needs to be programmed/configures with the VIN/chassis number of the car so it can interact with the other control modules. Are there anybody out there that can advice me where I can get the programming done or, have the equipment needed to do the programming? Thanks a lot. Alf
