    Checked out a nice XJ6 in silver which was tempting and in very good condition but not the spec I am looking for. Really want a V8 and am prepared to wait for the right one.

    I am looking into an XJ8 which ticks a lot of boxes but is four or five hours away so going to view is difficult.
    Looking to get an AA inspection but I am not the only interested party.

    For me it would be S-Type, optimally 4.2 auto, or 3.0 manual.

    XJ is gorgeous, but it is too big as a daily driver (in Europe at least). S-Type (and XF) hit the sweet spot re size.

    Mr Mut The s type manual 3.0 is a great car , I had one for 5 years but the XJ (X350 or 35 is just so much better, it may be bigger but visibility is better in the XJ road holding is better i had my XJ X358 for 9 years now and It is my daily driver.

    To the right Eye the s type is a prettier/classic shape

    The ride is certainly not harsh and the interior is a lovely place to be.

    The Xj is probably a better car, but the s type has a certain something.

    Wow. 9 years is a lot. How it is re maintenance like? How is the engine, transmission and other stuff holding up? How many Km? Etc.

    I ask, because when I will replace my X-Type, I thought about going for either STR or an XJ of your generation.
