    BMac you can have one. Clyde15 you can have one as well and I'll also have one but paulcedron doesn't want one because his Freelander was 'junk' and he should know after all he knows everything.

    The UK company made profits of £842m....?

    JLR's results underpinned profits at its parent, India's Tata Motors...
    Tata Motors bought JLR in 2008 from Ford ...
    From American..,to...
    The Indian Company...?

    putting the rant aside, britain used to design / build wonderful cars and motorcycles in the past: jaguar, rolls royce, bentley, aston martin, mg, the original rover, norton, hrd, etc.

    all those companies went bankrupt. not even one was saved from mismanagment, bad business strategies, etc.

    most of them dissapeared and the rest belong to indian or german companies, etc.
    now they are as british as a fiat cinquencento.

    You are right there Pops I used to have a XJ6 4.2 litre in Midnight Blue...heavy on the fuel with two petrol tanks....but wonderful to drive....
    Just one small point, Britain still do produce wonderful Motorcycles...Triumph...I have a recent one....

    As British as the fiat cinquecento?

    So, the Fiat is designed in the UK, manufactured in the UK and have the engines manufactured in the UK?


    But the Jaguars are designed in Witley, built in Castle Bromwich and Halewood and the Engines come from Dagenham and Bridgend.

    The parent company may be Indian...but JLR is still very British.

    Firstly......, in this globalised world...., I would check my Triumph’s ”VIN Number”…. (11th VIN number position is used to designate the Assembly Plant)

    POS 1 - 3 Manufacturer
    POS 4 - 6 Model
    POS 7 - Engine
    POS 8 - Power Output
    POS 9 - Check Digit
    POS 10 - Model Year
    POS 11 - Assembly Plant (J = Jacknell Road, Hinkley, ENGLAND / T = Chonburi, THAILAND)
    POS 12 - 17 - Sequence Production Number

    Secondly…….... The frame is, most probably, welded in Taiwan…

    ....thank you Mr.Think for making me go outside in the snow to the garage to check the Vin no. only to find that is a fallacy....
    It does have 17 characters and goes....SMTTJ911YL..xxxxxxx..the x's are the chassis no.
    I found this explanation...
