  • Winter Tyres

    In parts of Europe it's common, or even a legal requirement for drivers to keep two sets of wheels and tyres - one for summer and another for winter. When the temperature drops normal tyres become stiff and inflexible. Winter tyres use a type of rubber and a tread pattern designed to stay flexible in low temperatures to give better braking and handling performance on snow and as ice as well as on wet roads in cold conditions. At James French we are a retailer of Vredestein winter tyres, due to the high quality product and its ability to perform in winter conditions. For more information on Vredestien or other tyre marques, please click the 'Enquire about this offer' button below or contact out Parts Team on 01865 300811 (ext 3).

  • Soft Tops

    We are now taking orders for the 2018 summer soft top conversions. We have a demonstrator available to drive and a huge selection of options to personalise your vehicle to any requirement. 'Soft tops' don't appear in the 'Official' Land Rover range, apart from the occasional special edition, so there are relatively few on the road. However, every year at James French.com we famously buy a couple of Land Rover Defenders and convert them into the ultimate summer vehicle within our eight bay workshop. All vehicles are finished to the highest factory finish standards. The soft tops are incredibly popular as not only are they rare and affordable, they're also extremely versatile. Unbeatable off-road, they're also very comfortable for day-to-day travel and surprisingly smooth on the motorway. And the novelty factor for friends and family is obvious - the soft top modification allows you to get everyone in the back with the roof down and the music turned up!

  • Air Con

    Land Rover Air Conditioning Service Your air conditioning should be serviced every 18 24 months to make sure that it's operating efficiently. Allowing your system to run low on refrigerant results in the compressor having to work twice as hard meaning it could wear out in half the time. The air conditioning efficiency can be maximised by making sure you run the system whenever there is the slightest need in hot or cold conditions. Regular use will prevent the system's rubber seals and gaskets from drying out and cracking - a common cause of leaks. You should be aiming to run your system for at least a few minutes every week. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn't greatly reduce your miles per gallon. If in doubt, why not ask us to do a free air con performance test? The test takes approximately one hour, so why not enjoy a cuppa whilst you wait.

  • Power Upgrades

    We use Viezu Technologies Tuning at James French.com for all power upgrades. The performance tuning capability of Viezu means a vehicle can be optimised for power and economy, with Viezu Performance Tunes optimised for European and US driving conditions. In every case, fuel consumption can be improved. We can also achieve a sharper throttle response and quicker acceleration. The whole process is very quick to carry out. Before tuning a vehicle, it's essential to run a diagnostic report to check there are no issues that may affect the performance upgrade. Once completed, the relevant performance tuning software is uploaded to the vehicle through the Viezu tool via the OBD diagnostic port.
