Jaguar XJS Classic Car Valet Service: Video

KWE Jaguar offers specialist leather treatment and valeting for your classic car. This video provides an example of how we can restore your classic motor back to its former glory.

We helped spruce up this late, four litre Jaguar XJS, completely revamping its worn-out interior whilst carefully valeting its exterior and engine bay. The results, we think you’ll agree, are impressive.

  1. Deep clean and feed – grime removed, leather more supple, but wear marks will still be evident (approx £80 per seat)
  2. Clean and spray re-dye, and feed – leather is supple and looks like new (approx £350 per seat)
  3. Repair of nicks and worn areas (as addition to 2 above) – special treatment to build up worn-away dye. Small nicks can be masked.

We can’t repair stitching or broken piping except by renewing leather (approx £600 per seat including removal and replacement). Some leather is too worn to be successfully refurbished.

Customer survey leads to improvements

Earlier this year we asked you to take part in a customer opinion survey to find out how we could improve the services we offer here at KWE Cars. 157 of you took the time to tell us how we are doing and what we could improve. It was an amazing response and we are genuinely very grateful for all the feedback.

We’ve used the information from the survey to develop a strategy to help grow the business and improve our marketing. Those of you who are regular visitors to our website will see that we’ve already made a start. Our new website went live a few weeks ago and, as a direct result of the feedback, we’ve started to offer a few Jaguar XJS cars for sale. As well as selling classic cars we’ve worked on, we’ll also be highlighting good examples that catch our eye from other online sources – all good excuses to keep coming back to the website!

Classic car of the month: Jaguar XJS 4 litre Coupé XJS, 45,000 miles

We now feature a car of the month – what do you think of our first specimen?

Built in 1992 and sporting the facelift body, this Flamenco red XJS retains its elegance through sleek chrome, rubber bumpers and doeskin leather – a combination many Jaguar XJS enthusiasts crave. The engine still runs like new with 45,000 miles on the clock, the bodywork is in excellent condition, and the suspension is standard – although it could be much improved with our upgrade process.

An out of this world driving experience fit for a Jedi knight

Star Wars fans were in for a treat after a photograph of the Millennium Falcon and X-wing fighter was taken from above the set of Star Wars Episode VII and published on Twitter last week. The picture, showing the two spacecraft at Greenham Common in Berkshire, was taken from a flight-school plane taking publicity shots in the local area.
