Could be tempted to have a closer look at this

Looks to be missing about 800cc, 2 cylinders and 100bhp.  Then I might consider it, *IF* I could live with an estate ;D

But if it fits your needs... ;)

No fault codes stored, according to my code reader.  :(

Generic OBDII reader is only for drivetrain, nothing else

Following on from Chiltern Railways' incompetence, I decided to lose some aggression on the way back from the station.  Its awfully quick, and awfully nimble when some idiot of a double idiot doing about a third of my speed decides to pull into the outside lane without looking or signalling.

Yes X350 got the 2.7L diesel and I believe the biggest petrol was the 4.2L in either n/a or supercharged flavours.Jags have not really been that roomy inside hence the need to make the lwb versions of the XJ to give better legroom.
All the limo saloons, xj, s class, 7 series etc all come in LWB options, to cater for rear seat adults.  I believe in places like the states, these are the most common option, with the Europeans tending to have the largest share of SWB versions.

I could now downsize and be mortgage free, but MrsT would not be keen on that.  ::)  ;D
Send her out to work, and you be house husband, then see what she says ;)

Also @ TB you bought considerably earlier than I did, I only bought when I was 27.  :)
But you still lost in the Smugness battle ;D


Bought my first at 21, when interest rates were well into double figures. Its all swings and roundabouts.


In reality, mine was paid off years ago, I only keep it running because it pisses Barclays off - I have a 125k guaranteed loan at about 1.4% in I want it, that under new rules, they have to show on their books :D

The S Class is a nice place to sit. Its a bit of a lacklustre drive though, if you enjoy your driving.  But it can crunch miles.

It's a poor pastiche of the trendsetting series1 XJ6 from 30 years earlier,  ......

Seeing an original Series 1 XJ makes you realise how bloated the latest XJ has become
The black C pillars on the X351 are supposed to make it look smaller.  Obviously my black one, it makes SFA difference :D



All cars are bloated now. Airbags in every orifice, the XJ has airbags under the bonnet, and extra strengthening in the safety cell. It all takes space :(

Stale piss aside,the X350 is one of the best looking Jags imo :y


It's a poor pastiche of the trendsetting series1 XJ6 from 30 years earlier, a sure sign of a company that had lost its nerve.

A very nice drive, though - in 4.2 Supercharged form, at any rate. :y
Pretty certain the pre X351 XJs only got the 2.7 tractor lump, which is smooth, economical and powerful....   ...just not a patch on the 3.0 tractor. Something Opti has to consider when choosing a new Indian tractor.

For Mr Wood, I'm pretty certain the pre X351 didn't get the 5.0 SC lump.  That in itself makes the X351 worthy of consideration...

Got told today that the F-Pace replacement has been sold!

Now I have to chose something and get a build to order vehicle then wait, the Velar is looking tempting.
That's an F-Pace in RR drag, isn't it?

Today's mong is an ebayer.  Bought something from a supposed business well over a week ago, and paid 7 for P&P, courier.

Chased them yesterday, "DPD have not picked it up from pickup point yet".  Which to the uninformed means "we can't be arsed to get it ready for pickup, or drop off at pickup point".


Fikkin' mongs, the lot of 'em

The Berry stuff does have a unique stink of summer fruits. The Citrus one (the stronger one) is a far less pleasant smell ;D

I've done it a few times before, but I can do passenger side coilpack in less than 15, including tea break, plus I have LPG stuff in the way.

Drivers side takes me longer, due to fuel pipes
