    I have bought an import 1994 4.0-litre XJS, which is, at this moment, in Felixstowe. Frankly, I hadn’t given any thought until yesterday about modifications it might require to be road legal in UK. However, when I enquired at Halfords about having th...

    The electronic sender unit can often be the cause of unnecessary worry, but backup feedback exists in the form of an independently controlled warning light. When the ignition is switched on, it should illuminate in the central cluster between the spe...
