    Congrats on the XJL Col50, what a machine.

    You made the classic mistake of sitting in it / taking for a test drive......It's all over at that point lol.

    Welcome to the XJ X351 section, good to have you with us.

    Beautiful car, lovely interior too, tell us more, add some more pics etc etc. You might want to start your own thread here on the car moving forward, you can add all info there, it's a great way of keeping track of services / miles / events / mods or upgrades etc etc etc

    Hope to hear more
    Cheers

    Jim

    Congrats...lovely looking car mate. You fell into the trap of sitting in an XJ...B l o o d y fatal, ALWAYS means you are gonna buy it My Only reserve would be the alloys, are they the regular 19 inchers ? I do prefer the 20 inch versions, especially the Oronas. However, I am sure you will love the car, as for economy, had mine remapped and regularly returns 45-50mpg on runs, even seen 54!!....Enjoy

    Hi Billy I have to say i have no idea what size the wheels are i just looked to see what make tyres were on it (pirelli pzero) but didn't look at the size i will have to have a little look at some point . I have seen a couple of these with ditch catchers on them and it always amazes me when advert states also fully serviced and maintained regardless of cost and the cheapest tyres none to man are fitted .So tyre choice is one of first things i look at . But i haven't seen many with these wheels on them so i cant say if they are were just the standard basic fitment or not.

    Those are the 19" Aleutian wheels, I had them on my last one and also have them on my current car, I actually have a spare set and tend to have them refurbished every so often, generally when I change the tyres . Comfortable ride on these wheels, I have been pleased with them on mine.
