K. - Houston. “I have had lots of problems with my air suspension. When Motorcars suggested that I replace the air springs with their spring conversion kit, I was skeptical and very concerned about losing the wonderful ride in my XJ8. I was assured that if I did not like the ride, that they would repair my old springs and replace my air suspension. On the very first test drive, I was shocked to feel how my Jaguar felt more solid but more controllable. I am now sold, and know what I have been missing all along – a smooth ride that I can toss around any corner anytime my husband pisses me off and make him spill his coffee, and still take it to the spa for a day of indulgence !”
J – Austin, Texas. “Amazing. I enjoy my Jaguar again. It was not an intellectual decision… it was for fun.”
B – New Ulm. “Driving back and forth to Houston every day, there are a lot of windy roads. I have a Porsche and my wife has a Jaguar. Motorcars converted the air bags in June 2011. Now I drive the Jaguar on the roads as much as my Porsche. Frankly, it handles like a dream – not as good as my Porsche - but far better than it did when it had air bags. It is the difference between night and day.”
MS. Angela Andreola - Auto Repair Industry Expert. "Every Jaguar owner who is still battling with the suspension issues in their car can benefit from this conversion. It will save you thousands of dollars and allow you to enjoy your Jaguar for many years." In fact , I believe in this conversion so much, that my shop ABS Exotic Repair of Ft Lauderdale is going to be an authorized installer of this wonderful suspension package." www.theautorepairlady.com
David – Austin, Texas. “To say I am pleased with the conversion is an understatement, I am blown away with just how good the ride is - how anyone could be unhappy, well they must be very picky or have money to burn, I would be delighted to be a "reference" or provide a formal testimonial for this conversion, just let me know - as we discussed you would be crazy NOT to go for this. Thanks again for the great job.”
Chris L. “I am very pleased with the installation process and the drving experience of the new suspension. The ride is just as comfortable as the air version and I'm assured of the fact that I will not see the frustrating air suspension fault warning light coming out again.!”
The installation was easy and even though this was the first time my technician had his hands on the conversion kit, he did it in a breeze (the tech took about 5 hrs) . The conversion was hassle free and I would recomend anyone with the air suspension problem to consider using this conversion.
