I've decided to buy my dream childhood car, an XK8. I haven't decided on a year yet but likely one of the pre or early 2000s models based on my budget (very low!). I've decided I want to have some fun in my life before I have kids.
I'm currently London based but moving further out and...
This morning I went to view an XK8 and need a little advice on what I found on the vehicle,
I know what to look for in XK8’s as I have been wanting to purchase one for a while however I can point out issues but not how bad they are?
The vehicle I went to see has a few small...
I have a 1996 XK8 with a fan problem.
Put a new fuse in, start the car and the fan works. Switch off, leave for a while, start the car, the fan doesn't work and the fuse has blown. Seems to be a bit random that it doesn't blow the first time the fuse is put in.
I know this is likely to be...
With reference to this video:....
I am looking for the same 'missing' part for the XK8.
Its a round plate that is attached too and sits under the Gear Shift Unit... it activates the Illumination Module.

So I have to...
I'm 6.2 tall, 210 lbs and considering an XK8. I cannot find one in my area so am hesitant to buy without trying. Wondering if anyone here can share their experience if you're a tall XK8 owner.

Also my buttons don't correspond to what people are posting.
I would appreciate suggestions how to bypass or at least get radio serial.
I need to remove the crank pulley from an X100 XK8. Its a 1996 4.0. There seem to be a few tools out there that look pretty similar. Can anyone point me to the right direction of which tool it is?
New here, so hope I'm not committing any faux pas in posting here with my inquiry. I tried searching for related issues but found mostly just things about door trim. I'm in the Seattle area (Pacific Northwest US, Washington), if anyone knows of reputable shops that might be able to...
My alternator belt came off resulting in a cold wait and tow truck home. With the loss of battery power the power steering has stopped working. I need to get it to the garage, but there is no way it can be driven as it is. My questions are:
- if I fully charge the battery, will I get the...
Hi, I need a battery on my car and am not sure what to go for. I believe I need a 019 type and the ones that I have shortlisted are: Bosch S5013 £114.95, Exide EA1000 £89.11 and Varta Silver 600402083 £105.97. I have heard that the Exide is the most suitable but that is the cheapest one so I am...
Hi all, I was driving my car around when the auto gear box seemed to disengage, I was miles from home so tried to carry on. There was then a bump and the car seemed to go into a high gear and I was able to drive home with the gearbox warning light on. It was fine on the motorway but every time I...
