Hello. I am new to the list and all a bit lost.
I live in the Midlands UK
I am currently interested in buying a second hand XJR V8 however I am
very fussy what I am looking for !
I’m after an XJR8 in Antigua Blue with Ivory leather and criuse control.
Harmen Karden Radio would be a bonus too.
That’s two optional extras I’m looking at and I’m starting to appreciate
I’m looking for a very rare car (however I’m willing to wait).
I like the Antigua Blue paint and Penta alloys so would prefer an early
model however I am a little disapointed with the lack of heated seats
(do you need them on Jags ?) and the Grey maple wood (would prefer the
optional extra wood pack on later models). (how much to retro fit?)
What other differences are there ?
I understand the kick down is different from here ?
And the parkers guide (LOL) mentions in SEPT 1998 PAS servotronic II on
all models and a brake upgrade on the XJR.
Are they talking about the optional extra Brembo brakes ? or a change
to standard fitment ?
What is the story between the early 1997 models and the later models ?
Please HELP ! Lots of questions.
Should I start keeping a look out for a later model in Pacific Blue ?
I test drove a Y reg model with the optional extra brembo and wood pack.
Are there any other things I will be expecting on a 1997 model that I
won’t get and will be disapointed ? Seat memory pack ? etc
I am currently thinking of buying one from a dealer to get the jag 1
year warranty. Is this as good as it sounds?=20
As I’m looking for a rare car I would also consider buying one out of
autotrader but only if you can tell me what the common faults with
these cars are that I can check and look for ?
One last thing. I see the USA cars have clear side indicator repeaters.
This is a mod I must have. Where can I buy them and how much ???
Sorry that’s all abit much.
Thank you for your Time
Any help appreciated.
