    It is, or strictly speaking the missus's daily driver. I use the Jag for my main job and most of my travelling these days is into London so I take the train so no need for that.

    Oh well that’s fine.







    Let her worry about it :D
    If she drives a P38 she probably knows how to fix it anyhow :)

    She drove it back on the bump stops once and never even noticed. When the vibrations from the loose prop were massaging your arse in the driver's seat she never noticed. It seems to be as much as she can take just steering and changing gear. She cannot even inflate the tyres.

    Maybe she never noticed him either, and always wondered where that boy popped out from :eek:

    4.0L S-type. It seems to drive itself. I just think and it goes there, even when I think fast.

    A long run can get 30 mpg. I know most garage forecourt attendees pretty well though. Been to a few of their kid's Christenings, that sort of thing.

    Too right. People seem to think it is a granddad car until it leaves them standing. Those new Golf GTIs give it a run for its money although not as elegant.

    Looks like a proper Jag mine is raely this clean, well since i put it on the road it has 1/2 inch of crap on it. ;)

    In S with foot to the carpet i've had 6.9 to 60 which is pretty quick and it'll give anything a run for it's money ;)

    I’ve driven the newer 2019 type (diesel manual). Was very smooth but chews fuel. My sister had a supercharged XKR at one time, very very fast and so smooth @120 you would think your doing 40! Not a car I would hold my license in for long, and too spensive/posh for me :)

    Since I had it the only things I have had to replace other than oil and filters were plugs and leads (that did cost a bit to be fair), expansion tank (was cracked when I got it), rear sub-frame (swapped over from a 3.0 that had a galvanised one in and then flogged on to another Jag owner who ended up swapping his subframe into it as it was better than his newer one that failed on something else). Other than that the only cost so far is petrol. However, the car only cost a grand with 30 odd thousand miles so I reckon I can throw quite a few £££ in fuel in it before I reach the price of a reasonable fuel efficient hatch-back of the same mileage and age yet I'm wafting along in something so much nicer.

    Jaguar have a trade-club too, so you can get parts cheaply if you are an enthusiast.

    She only buys new - which is how I get to try jags out - since the new RRs she’d buy always had to go back in for something or other and we’d have a courtesy to poke round with. She lost the bug due to the Evoque and they managed to sell her an A pace 1st edt. She still has that now so it must be decent

    Don't know if I said but the clutch is light as a feather now with new bushes. Makes me think the reason the spiral pins snapped 6 years ago was advance warning of wear. I think if the pins snap then you should replace the bushes immediately while you're in there and save yourself a load of pain. Or at least check no play on shaft and Teflon coating is good on bushes. I'll try and link in other threads to this one when I get a chance so others find the answer. I'm assuming it is fixed now!
