I dont even know the price...but it's a bit scabby. Will clean up well but it's not the best example.

3.0v6 auto, like mine was. However, they've really improved the interior after the 2002/3? Facelift. Much better in there, still the same basic architecture but better materials, nicer looking switchgear, stuff like that. Quite a nice place to be.

But the time is not right.

I'd like another cheap short term Jag at some point. I dont regret getting mine at all, even though it needed scrapping after like..3 months?...it was cheap enough to take a punt on.

Cars like these...cheap, big engined things...they are surely gonna be worthless. I mean....this one would be £555 a year to tax! I've had many many cars cheaper than that! if it was a year older, it would be £315...which down at the budget end of things makes a big difference!

However....i think i'd try for the 4.0 / 4.2 V8. There is barely any penalty in mpg over the 3.0. Wouldn't say no to a 2.7d either although they are keeping their value a bit better.

My mate Greame has the 2.7 Jaguar XJ and I have driven it. What a MACHINE Shocked

Not sure what the VED is on George, but so far I don't have to pay as I have a blue badge and it is registered as disabled which is handy.

But if you buy that, it's like 46:25 a month in tax alone Evil or Very Mad

Robbing Tory bastards Evil or Very Mad

Pity it wasn't LPG converted, then you could stick it to them with 50p a litre... pirat

Pre '06 tax is a lot cheaper on the big engined stuff.

£250 for the m235, which for a 3.0 with a high-ish output, i think, is really good

You really do need a 4.2 engine in your like. Preferably with a supercharger.......
