Has some rust and scuffs. Not pretty from some angles. The photos I've taken show the good sides.
Full service history. 98k. MOT to 8th Sept.

Early ones were 230, then later 250 and 260. But some say they were conservative and that they were always 250 from the start.
Having driven both, the 9-5 was faster but the Jeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaag is auto and heavier.
However, the V6 engine is much more pleasing and interesting to the ear than the Saab 4 pot.

I love to waft in George. I sit at around 55mph, just because.

Get used to wafting Crix, that is a wafter. Watch out for the rear suspension getting bouncy, the moving parts can seize and the spheres can pack in. But you'll know it as it will boing along like feckin Zebidee.

Great car for a steal though Cool

I've seen the pic of the nearside rear wheel arch elsewhere - I haven't seen a car that crusty for years except for old Transits and Fiestas! Still it looks like a lot of welding was done on the last MOT so should be ok for a while?

I'm not a massive SType fan, but that is a nice bargain barge to waft around in!
I admire in some ways your car buying habits - lots of motors to try - but god, all the admin! Your insurance admin charges must be a small fortune!

Hi tom, I think I saw your post on PH. The insurance administration charges are there but I don't consider them much compared to what I'd be spending on monthly lease / depreciation etc of a newer car.
I never lose money really on my cars. *cue major explosion*

Yes VFC, that may be an idea. The engine sounds good but it's very refined. Too refined?

Get your arse up here and I'll weld it for the price of the parts and gas. You won't get a better deal. Even paying for fuel, you'll still save a million quid...

Thank you for the offer. The car seemed to have some welding done on its last MOT so hopefully ok in that regard.

Ahhh. I've got a warm fuzzy feeling about the Jag. And no, it's not on fire.
It's just...a 'nice' car.
It's not sporty, it's not modern.or efficient. It's just nice.
I like it very much.

That's exactly how I feel about George.

Reliable (so far), comfy, looks epic for her age, powerful enough to pull Mildred (well what else could we call the caravan Rolling Eyes Razz ) and big enough to carry all my disco gear.

Not only that, the stereo is HUUUUGE in volume with bass that is just right (none of that RRRRRRRR crap, more doomph doomph doomph, like bass is meant to sound), loads of toys and turns heads with that colour.

Waft in comfort Crixy boy, waft in comfort Sleep

Wafting is the way forward - my Avantime, Saab 9-5 and Jag are all very good at it too. Most realxing.

When I waft I currently get 21mpg on my commute.
