I just had dinner with a friend of mine in Los Gatos Ca. He's worked for Jaguar for seven years. The 2000 XJ8's have started to use oil and run rough. Knowing the problem I had with my 540i he asked me "what type of liners do I think Jag started using in 2000?" I couldn't believe that Jag would be so ignorant to the problems BMW went through. He also asked me not to let this news out so don't tell anyone.
