    The V8 club.

    I went to stay with my BIL last week and we started looking at cars on the Internet, we found a lovely XJ V8 portfolio for sale but it was in Wales.

    Later that evening we were having a drink and some how that said car was being shipped up to Middlesbrough. A few days later I received a phone call from Evans Halshaw that the car has arrived.

    We went to ha have a look at it and made the fatal mistake of sitting in that gorgeous interior, after a test drive and hearing that smooth V8 I bought it.

    The car is a very dark matalic green, almost black with a cream and oak interior and finished off with polished Kasuga wheels. It's done 41000 miles and cost £14k (2010 model)

    I will be collecting it tomorrow (Tuesday).

    Now I need someone to explain in idiot terms how to get photos from postimage to the forum thread from an android phone. I also want photos of when I do the servicing showing the suction pump in action etc.
    Thanks.

    Nice one Steve, you won’t regret it. A few sherbets involved in getting the car delivered for the viewing?

    Yup. Fatal. If you want to keep your money in your wallet, for goodness sake don’t sit in an X351!

    Great to have you join the club.

    (I use drop box and have an iPhone, so can’t really help with the pictures issue. Sort it out though, so we can all see the new acquisition!)

    Cheers Mac, it will be great to join the club as I have always liked the X351.

    I hope someone can help sort out the photos as a thread is no good without them.

    WT Flipping heck!

    Take your time sorting the photo issue out Steve, take as long as you want.

    Jealous I am already, don't want my nose rubbing in it as well

    If you're gonna buy an XJ buy a V8 XJ, wafting personified.

    Mark, yes I'm still up for Jaguar Breakfast Club hope to see you there

    Rich, I'm looking forward to that T-shirt, I've always wanted a V8 and it might get to late if I left it any longer, I'm looking forward to some nice wafting

    Jim, I've been wanting a X351 since they came out but you have to wait until they are affordable lol

    Thanks for your PM, once the photos are sorted it's then plain sailing.

    Thanks again.

    In principle the photos thing is easy:

    Upload the photo someplace (postimage will do, I guess) that provides you a link to that picture. This is usually done on a smartphone with an app. So:

    1) Use the (postimage) app on your phone to upload a photo and obtain a link to it.

    2) Click the insert image in the tool bar above the posting box

    3) On the pop-up box that appears, click the "From URL" tab

    4) Paste in the link that you got in (1) above

    5) Uncheck (untick) the box "Retrieve remote file and reference locally"

    6) Click "OK"
