After owning just about every model of Jag made between '88 and '00 with the exception of the “late model” XJ40s, I’ve decided to finally look into buying one. Frankly, I don’t care for the block headlights and never did care for the block taillights on all XJ-40s, but I’m looking for maximum mechanical reliability and ease of repair, not aesthetics, which apparently (the former) is what that model is all about.
Back when I owned my '88 XJ-40s, ,I remember reading that in a certain model year Jag did away with the problematic SLS system as well as the HMOS “green blood” brake assist. I think this was beginning with the '93 MY, but possibly it wasn’t until the last year of the model ('94). When exactly did this change occur? Also, how many of these were made? I’m wondering how likely it is that I will even be able to find one of that type for sale in good shape.
Thanks for your help.
