    Senta Alloy Refurbishment

    Thanks for the confirmation about the Wheel Specialist in Glasgow @JimC64 - the south Glasgow branch only seems to be about 10 minutes away from where the car is for sale. As for tyres, I believe that Dunlop Sport Maxx are standard OE fitment but by all account the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S...

    Senta Alloy Refurbishment

    I've emailed the Wheel Specialist for a quote, I've used them before and agree they do an excellent job. There is a branch near me and there's also one near the dealer in Glasgow that's selling the car. If they could get them done at trade prices at the Wheel Specialist in Glasgow then I'd be...

    Senta Alloy Refurbishment

    Hello everyone, I've spotted a 2007 XK 4.2 that I might well move on but the 20" Senta alloys are looking quite tired and I think the Dunlop tyres are probably past their best with 15k miles under their belt. Rather than have the dealer sort these 'at cost' - I'd rather see a discount on the...

    Considering an XK/XKR as a second car

    Thanks for all the replies to to-date. As mentioned in my initial post I've spotted a car that is an excellent colour combination for my taste, 3 owners, 46k and a full service history. The bad is MOT history looks less promising. Repeated advisories on suspension items, sub-frame rust and the...

    Considering an XK/XKR as a second car

    Cheers, any insight from other owners in the area of Kilmarnock would be much appreciated. Looking at the MOT history for both cars they both seem to have issues that haven't been resolved. I think my preference is for the Spectrum blue car but that's at a higher price and they claim they have a...

    Considering an XK/XKR as a second car

    It's in Kilmarnock so quite a hike from Aberdeen but appreciate the offer nonetheless https://www.glenfieldcars.co.uk/used-cars/jaguar-xk-5-0-v8-portfolio-auto-2dr-kilmarnock-202107165114837 This is the alternate car I'm considering. The service history is all main dealer and it's not missed a...

    Considering an XK/XKR as a second car

    Thanks for the feedback @Henry_B The rust on the 1st car isn't reported as weakening the structure so it may be just surface rust as you say and such things may cause one MOT tester to flag it another to ignore it. I might ask for photos of the underside of the car to get a better feel...

    Considering an XK/XKR as a second car

    Hello everyone, I've just signed up to this forum as I have a hankering for an XK/XKR and would like to seek the advice of other members/owners. From what I've read, having a full service history is essential as the engines (4.2 & 5.0) are reliable so long as they're regularly serviced. I...
