Jaguar could keep their name "clean" by not Type Approving the cars and point the customers in the direction of another company to take care of that problem, or leave it up to the customer personally. I would not be surprised if Jaguar had in their inventory a complete set of compliant components that the customer could purchase.
"Unscrupulous" is a bit strong though. I see your Mk4 has parts fitted that would not pass. (Depending when it was first registered). A little change/upgrade here and there ��
