I have previously done some research on this when I was looking at early cars using the supercharged 5.0.


Problem seems to be on cars up to about 2012 onwards but doesn't seem to be a definitive way to tell from chassis number.

It would seem that the usual quoted cost to get it done by a specialist is between £3,500 and £4,000, some of this is due to the cost of the 'new style' parts.

The XFR 100 was an 'end of line' special edition prior to the facelift XFR being launched, nice car but I don't think they will become collectable in the true sense.

The dilemma is whether to buy one with the potential issue, pay for the repair and then you know it has been done, pay more for one of the cars the may potentially have the issue in future (unless it has already had the job done) or spend a lot more and get a later car that already has the 'uprated' parts from the factory ?

Out of interest, my friend John is one of our Jaguar 'Master Techs'

He tends to buy Jaguars with mechanical issues that he can fix in his own time and then sell on, making a profit.

Messaged me today about the white XFR 100 that is the subject of this discussion, seller has offered it to him for £7,000.

John already has two XFR's at the moment that he is working on when time allows, so probably not in the market for another.

Information on the sellers 'best price' might be useful, if someone on here is interested in it.

Quite tempted myself at that price but if it needs anything more that the cam chains replacing, it stops being a bargain !
