    £800 x350

    Well at the weekend , I became the owner of an X350 4.2 SE on a 52 plate BD52NKW , I was down the Garage and an
    old mate who I hadn't seen for years asked me if I was interested in it , it was only over in Bedford so off we went to have
    a look . The upshot was that the engine was running lumpy with a suspected Head Gasket Failure though at the moment
    I suspect there is more investigation needing to be done as the story behind this engine failure is sketchy to say the least .
    Anyway , not sure of where I am going with it at the moment , I gave him £800 for it , I will get my money back breaking
    it if need be , though to be honest thats not something that I want to do , but at the money I thought its better with me
    than some other idiot I shall stick up some pictures later which we took prior to purchase , the car came with a wedge
    of receipts and paperwork , my old mate had just simply lost interest .

    Well hopefully we can get her back up and running , our paint sprayer is very keen on her and if we can get her back up to
    her former splendour then he will no doubt have her off me . The panels are all original though there are some alignment
    issues with the boot lid . The water trap seal at the base of the rear screen has been damaged for some reason , this is the
    third X350 SE I have had , and the rubber surround has never seemed to me a perfect fit on any of them .
    The car is also a Milton Keynes Jaguar which has never left the Area which is quite nice to know . Let me get to this Meeting
    and I shall stick the pictures up later and you will see what I mean .
