    Hello Wales, who are you, where do you live, what have you got?

    Hi everyone,
    Just bought my first Jag, an S Type, 1999, two owners and only 14,000 miles. Immaculate condition.
    As I write, I haven't even picked the car up, I will be collecting it on Thursday if the weather holds out. (Currently expecting weather from Siberia!)
    I live in Caerphilly, down the south.

    It would be good to get some banter going on the Wales section and maybe in the summer get a fun run organised.

    Look forward to hearing from you all

    John

    Hello John,
    Nice to hear from you indeed, if only to knock the 2 year old reference to the Swansea car show off its latest post slot!
    Sounds a nice car, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

    If you head a little way south, you will come across the Glamorgan Classic Car Club who I'm sure would make you very welcome. They are a really nice bunch, but don't tell them - they will get too big headed!

    On the what have you got bit - a 2003 X350 3.0ltr Sport in Radiance red, Ivory leather and more unusual dark walnut. Third in the line of Jaguar ownership over many years, but this one has been the best-for-me one.
    Enjoy your find - I'm sure you will.
    Kind regards,
    Gareth.

    Hi Gareth,
    Can't wait for the snow to disappear so I can get out and give it a once over.
    regards

    Hi Jeff,
    That'll be two of us then in Wales
    Nice car!
    Had the spark plugs and coil packs done on mine soon as I had it as although low mileage it is 19 years old so as a precaution. Few other jobs to be done too.
    cheers

    Hi Tomo, glad you like the jag.
    I used to live on Anglesey when I was a kid, been to Rhyl many times and puked up after going on the fairground whirlygigs, would never make a pilot.
    I'll stick to the S-type
