    What to do with an non-driving x-type

    Looking for a but of advive...

    I have an 04 X-type 2.5 petrol v6. It's done about 80k, and seens to have been looked after ok. A couple of bumps, but overall, I loved it.

    It started going wrong, unfortunately, and I've SORNed it. Garage said it had 2 leaks in the rear brake pipes, lamda (?) Sensor problem, and needed 2 plugs and a coil.

    I was going to get it fixed, as I loved driving it, but I now work away sometimes, and it its not the most economic, so i got a boring car.

    My question is: what do i do with it? I can get 140-ish from the jag "recycling" thing, and I don't have the ability to break it up sell it bit by bit.

    Any advice gratefully received, cheers.

    that doesnt sound like a great deal of work but sadly the petrol X types dont seem to go for much these days.

    if you want a chuckle this is the failure sheet for this year from the one i got rid of at start of 2018, it was booked in, failed, they did the work then it was failed on different stuff.

    the new owner decided that these were worth putting right (bearing in mind he bought it from me for £500) and his MOT last year had a similar amount of issues that he had to put right.

    just goes to show that if you love the car then its worth chucking the cash at it.
