Looks Can Be Deceiving

If you’ve been in an accident, check for mechanical problems first.

The first thing most people wonder when they’ve been in a minor accident is what will be involved to repair the damage to their vehicle’s exterior. After all, that’s the damage that is most readily apparent. So they head straight to a “body shop”.

But minor accidents can cause mechanical damage that is almost undetectable without trained eyes. Suspension and frame problems are common, which is why we encourage you to contact us when you’re in need of any collision repair. We can recommend a trusted collision center and work with them to ensure your vehicle benefits from a thorough, professional mechanical inspection prior to body work. Cole European also works with collision centers to supply them with genuine manufacturer replacement parts — including body panels — to keep your Jaguar or Land Rover at the highest possible level of integrity and authenticity.

What we want you to avoid is a situation where months after your car has been “repaired”, you note that it just isn’t driving as it should. Chances are, the insurance paperwork has been completed and you may be responsible for any subsequent expenses and inconvenience. While not all damage can be spotted during an inspection, most can.

So if your Jaguar or Land Rover is in need of cosmetic repair, please consider calling us first so we can assess the situation and help you avoid simply painting over a more serious problem.

We hope this is a helpful tip that you never need to use.

It’s time for our Annual CPO Sales Event

All Certified Pre-Owned Jaguars and Land Rovers are Now on Sale!

See offers below.

The Jaguar F-Type R

The “R” is for “Racing”. And “Rare”.

Both the driving experience and the vehicle are rare. But Cole European currently has two F-Type R series in stock, both of them convertibles. One black, one white. The R version distinguishes itself with a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine that produces 550 horsepower, accelerating from 0-60 in just 3.9 seconds. That’s fast. Very fast. While you may not need that level of speed, the power affords the driver a more exhilarating experience at every level. Or, if you’re someone who thinks they need something even faster, say, 200 MPH, visit us and we can talk about special ordering the Jaguar F-Type SVR

“Where Do You Think You’re Going?”

Regardless, consider Land Rover accessories

Land Rovers are engineered with adventure in mind. That includes trips to mountain bike, ski or snowboard, windsurf or kite surf, paddle board, kayak, canoe, camp, or dozens of other activities. Maximize the ease with which you travel by equipping your Land Rover with genuine Land Rover accessories, designed specifically for your vehicle. Consider just a few of what items are available: waterproof seat covers; iPad holders; roof racks; electric cooling bags; side steps; towing hitches; cargo space liners; dog barriers; even genuine Land Rover ski bags. Many of the popular items are in-stock at Cole European and all the others can be special ordered. You can even shop for items online, then visit us to place your order.

Is ‘Factory Authorized’ Better?

We think so and here is why

There’s a widely held perception that having your vehicle serviced at a Factory Authorized dealership is more expensive. More to the point, the belief is that you can get the same quality of service at an “independent” and save money.

We disagree. When you consider the degree of specialization represented by our Factory Trained and Factory Certified technicians; the ongoing training they receive; the up-to-the-minute alerts and bulletins they receive; the diagnostic equipment they use; the quality and fit of genuine factory parts they use; and their longterm interest in keeping you 100% happy with your Jaguar or Land Rover, we feel you receive more value and in prompter fashion. And in reality, we rarely cost more if you accurately compare the services provided. We never cut corners to “appear” inexpensive.

So treat yourself to the peace-of-mind that is genuine, Factory Authorized Service, at Cole European.

Cole’s Detail Crew

There’s a huge difference between a “clean” car and one that has been professionally detailed. The difference? Well, it’s in the details.

Simply washing a car provides quick gratification and certainly improves a vehicle’s looks. Temporarily. Detailing goes deeper, looking at ways to remove hard-to-find grime and prevent its return. A professional detailer will evaluate carpets, upholstery, door hinges, trunk liners, even air conditioning vents. Anything that contributes to a final product that is as close to original showroom condition as possible is evaluated.

Like any true professionals, the Detail team at Cole European are experts at what they do. Each has developed the tricks of the trade to not only do the job well, but to do it efficiently and with lasting impact. Depending on the level of service you desire, we can even clean the entire engine compartment.
