Hi, I'm surprised a 15 year old has a s type! Then again I was into jags from about 10 years old.

And that was a cheap 2005!

And you have come to the right place for any advice there's nothing us lot don't know any the S type.

Got to be worth at least 4x times the price you paid once fixed up, real bargain! The interior with brown piping and walnut veneers is super rare on a S-Type.
Best of luck with the project, I bought my first XJ a bit older at 19.

thanks!!

the s type is my dream car and the fact i found a relatively good one of £450 really shows how much some people undervalue them, they are a great car and an appreciating classic.

Are you tall enough to see over the top of the steering wheel?

(only pulling your leg!)

Welcome to the madhouse and enjoy your Jaguar.

Some people just don't have any interest in cars and don't want to know about thing about how to maintain etc.

I am shocked at how many men have break down services change wheels for them!

if you cant change a tire or do basic maintenance you really should own a car :D just my humble opinion
