Surveying part of a large water site today, and one of the managers there had one of these.
After talking about cars he took me out in a blast in it, what a car! Pickup on throttle was nice, kick down nice, the sound of the changing of gears was sublime
It also had a button in the...
Remember when car shows were about the cars?
Acceleration tests, turning circles, Db tests, complete with non ironical Rick Astley soundtrack.
This period Dutch show puts the BMW, Jag and the big merc through their paces. The brake tests, slalom and elk tests are where things get...
Next year I will be selling my lovely low mileage CLK 350 convertible which provokes the thought to what I will replace her with.
At the moment with a £9-10,000 budget I will have I'm thinking a 2.7 Porsche 987 Boxter or a Jaguar XK or maybe keep to Mercedes.
Any thoughts please.
From the man who penned The Aston Martin DB7, the Jaguar F-type, the Ford Escort Cosworth comes his interpretation/update on the classic MK 2 JAG.

Well following on from my thread yesterday asking about S class suspension one of the guys who I drink with has asked me to try and source him an S Class W220 preferably S500 but he's open to other engine options. I'm looking at 2004/5 vintage max maybe earlier to leave a few shillings to put...
Well after 140,000 miles in the w203 it was time to look at a different car, so I went to the Jag dealer with the XKR and XFR in mind and actually come out with the XF S.
I still have the w203 but I'll be selling it soon.
I recently found the official full workshop manual for the Daimler 2.5 V8 saloon I owned in another existence. I have no need of it but it's too good to throw out. It has full service and maintenance instructions for both manual and automatic (BW35) transmissions. If anybody has a use for it...
Mrs JB can't stand old Jags - tells me they are an old man's car. E Class is hardly the preserve of young men... :rolleyes:
Anyway - for those who appreciate curves (I even love the wheels):

This morning while I was taking my weekly run up the M40, as usual not in a particularly fuel efficient rate.
Anyway, I had to slow down a little to get past a gaggle of slowly overtaking cars when I happen to notice a black XFR in the rear view mirror; amazing how sinister those bonnet vents...
I have often said I don't like the XFR but it's never let me down or played up in 5500 miles and a year but I'm underwhelmed by it.
It's worth about £41k tops (they are now £65k) but anything for the same money is nowhere near in age, spec or performance.
The only car I have got near to...
The Jags on pistonheads as Im half heartedly flogging it but not much response, get a email asking if still for sale and price, I answer yes at the price on the advert.
Then the scam hits, marine engineer, restricted web access, no phone calls buying for his dad - love it
"Im sure he (his...
