    Lovely looking car in that colour, and the Sovereign interior?

    The ropey aftermarket badges should come off the back without leaving any marks, and at least they haven't mutilated the bonnet with...

    I absolutely love those late 6 litre cars. I prefer the look of the XJRS and the engine in that is more powerful and feels livelier, but my word did that 4 speed auto transform the way the XJS...

    Fun fact - the S-Type (certainly post 2004 facelift) used a Ford coolant temperature sensor to do this job. They die ALL THE TIME and tell the car that it's -32C or so outside so the climate control...

    The only thing that can make a car wobble at idle is the engine. An exhaust leak might make a noise, or maybe cause a light vibration, but not a wobble. Engine mounts, if the engine is idling...

    Vibration through the body of the car at that speed can be rear wheel balance. I have an issue with mine since tyre replacement, I need to get it looked at. If you accelerate to 80+ does the...

    Minidisc!

    Just a shout out that if anyone has the Minidisc non nav setup in their X350 I would be very interested in swapping for my CD head unit, and if anyone has one they've removed kicking about then I'd...

    What happens when you try and rev it? Is the engine management light on? It could be one of many things.

    I'd get a £10 bluetooth OBD reader on it if so.

    You can expect a fair chunk less selling privately than prices you see at dealers. Also these cars sell slowly; you'll see the same cars advertised for months. If you need to shift it quickly...

    I drove an S-Type 2.7d that had been remapped and it utterly transformed the car; I always felt that it badly needed another 50bhp, which the remap delivered, and it helped with the lag from...

    If I put on a sensible hat then I'd agree, with some regret, that for 25-30k a year the diesel does make sense ;-)

    ABS warning would fail the MOT. The others shouldn't, unless the headlight output is clearly dimmed by the condensation. You might get advisories on other warnings, it's very much at the testers...

    X300 coachlines were hand painted on! I'm not a fan, an XJS in particular looks great without them.

    That is a much, much better buy. Top of the market for an early car and a private sale. I'd expect it to be immaculate with all the big expensive things (valley hose particularly) done for that...

    My thoughts were that if you're starting off gently and then asking for more it might be moving up to 2nd, then back down to 1st thus giving you a lack of response. In S mode it'll hang onto 1st for...

    My S-Type 2.7d was very soft off the line, but if anything I'd say the other Jaguars I've owned have a particularly aggressive "tip in" from a standstill. My X350 is hilarious from a standing start...

    That leaper really is tragic isn't it, a metre up the bonnet. I will be very surprised if it's just stuck on, and even if it is the paint underneath will be damaged.

    Considering how toppy the...

    I'd want to take a very good look at why the grille is at 10 degrees from horizontal and also appears to be sunk in on one side, it may have had a whack to end up in that state.

    It would also be...

    That seems very strong money for a decade old, not very powerful car filled with technology that is 15 years out of date and with limited market appeal. You're very close to X351 territory there...

    You end up with holes in the bonnet, so you need to either go to a bodyshop, put a round badge in place, or live with it and look like a Gerald. I don't buy (or even view) mutilated Jaguars for this...
