Had a night drive in it. Parked up to see this light. Didn't know this was part of the opening light set up. Nice touch

Depends upon how OCD you are, but if I was buying new I would consider the protective acrylic pieces at the back of the sill. Mine was pretty stone-chipped after c10k miles.
I'm pretty OCD :lol: Not sure what these would be though. Do you have a link at all?

Welcome to the forum. Car looks great.

Re what Jeff mentioned, due to the design, the XE does suffer a road rash problem on the lower panels immediately in front of the rear wheels. It’s a really good idea to clear wrap them to prevent any damage to the paintwork. While you’re at it, do the kick plates either side too which will stop any scratching.

I have those on mine and you are correct, they are a nice touch, but I find they don't illuminate any puddles that may be outside the door when you get out, unlike the ones under the door that did. Guess how I know about that 😲🤬

My car has just notched up 5000 miles since new this time last year. While washing the car last weekend, I noticed the first signs of the dreaded road rash at the rear of the sills. Luckily at the moment, its barely noticeable unless you kneel down and take a good close look. I am now waiting for delivery of some precut PPF from Aliath so that I can get some protection on there ASAP. Not sure what the quality of the Aliath film is like or how durable it will be, but at least it will suffice until I can get some good PPF fitted professionally at some time in the near future.This is the link of the film that I have ordered: https://www.aliath.co.uk/collections/ja ... ear-shield

147daytona,

I have the last of the old style XE with my MY19 R-Sport. I was surprised it did not have the logo puddle lights like its then Land Rover same MY19 counterparts at the JLR dealership. After searching the other Exterior Mirror Puddle Light threads in the forum and not finding anything, I pose this question to you or anyone else who might know:

Is there an OEM retrofit kit from JLR or could I order an OEM JLR MY20 Replacement Part that is an exact fit for my MY19 R-Sport?

Money is not an issue but rather fitment and OEM performance is a filter for my go/no-go decision similar to the OEM (vs EBay) "R" badge I had installed on my front grille after JLR dropped it from their MY19 R-Sport trim design.

If you are talking about the lights in the underside of the mirror as in blue-Phils post earlier, I think these are a direct replacement for the existing mirror lights.

I did replace the lights in the underside of the door on my previous 240 with some logo projector ones from eBay which were very good and a direct swap for the OEM ones, and were also more useful than the ones in the mirrors.

ps, the R badge never was an option on the R-Sport, only the S badge for that model.

Thanks for the mirror light direct replacement feedback.

Thanks also for the PS ... in checking back on the XE grill badging photos, lol, only "S" from JLR. The pics I now remember from when I was looking at (before adding the front "R" badge on my XE) are all after-the-fact owner installs by folks who felt/said "something was missing." Me too :-)

Thanks Jeff123 and DABroke. i think i will look into that. After a little drive over the weekend, it's now still not done 200 miles, so i have a good chance to get ahead of that issue - and it's not one i'd have known about.

So far i'm absolutely chuffed with the car, quite packed with extras and lovely to drive. However, i've not dared put it in sport yet, but will try that soon enough.

One thing i don't get though, is even though it has the climate pack (heated steering wheel and windscreen) there are not heated seats? i certainly cant see the button on the lower screen that the guide says should be there - so i guess i don't have them? Or are climate seats something different?

@blue_Phil

Heated seats are standard on MY21 XE in the UK. Then there are climate seats. Climate seats are heated and ventilated, and they are optional at extra cost.

It is worth noting that heated seats were cost extras in the UK on the MY20 XE, but my understanding is that yours is MY21.
