Re: Jensen servicing recommendations?

Thanks for the suggestions.
The engine seems to be running ok, but I would like the whole car checked over for peace of mind and to get a new mot too.

Re: Insurance agreed value recommendations?

I decided to go with Peter Best insurance as they were cheaper and have included my agreed value at no extra cost.
Adrian Flux aka Sterling insurance did come back with a much cheaper quote, but as a broker they should have offered me a better deal in the first place!

Jensen servicing recommendations?

Hi
I want to get my Interceptor properly serviced and mot'd this year, by a garage that knows the model.
Has anyone any recomendations for servicing in the Midlands region?
Cheers

Re: SORN scammers

When checking the mot history of a car for sale recently, I found that the web site was asking for payment to check the history.

I thought it strange and realised I wasnt on the official DVLA site, but one with a similar title, which was listed on Google before the government site!

Insurance agreed value recommendations?

Hi, My Interceptor car insurance is due for renewal and I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for an agreed value policy insurance company. I was with Flux direct but they have rebranded to Sterling insurance and have put the premium up and it doesn't now include agreed value either! Tim...

Re: Tonight's (18/03/21) Car SOS Jensen Interceptor Restoration

Not much has been said about the programme on here, whether it was a good watch or the car that was used as a comparison... Which I'm surprised about. I didn't watch it as I don't have the History channel. It's on the National Geographic channel. I've seen the episode uploaded to Youtube and anothe...

Re: Tonight's (18/03/21) Car SOS Jensen Interceptor Restoration

Always nice to see a Jensen on TV! I wonder how long the work took them? I noticed that they didn't claim they only had 3 weeks to get it done like they have in some episodes! :lol: I liked the look of the Lamborghini Espada they restored a couple of years ago.It was also finished in a period colour...

Re: Int 3 - low miles, one owner - at ACA end Jan 21

That was a very good price for an auction Interceptor!

At that price I would expect it to be concourse condition and wouldn't be expecting to sell it on for a good few years!

Re: oil filter update

Sounds like a good idea!

Is it easy to change the paper element type filter, or are there some pitfalls to be aware of?

I've managed to completely destroy a modern style oil filter before when trying to unscrew it! :lol:
