1991 Jaguar XJ-SReview
Love It! But Them I'm Biased, Its My Most Fav Car In The World! ;) — Very fun cars with imo a fantastically unique look. Performance - I have the 4.0l with a 0-60 currently of 6.9, although I hope to mod the engine one day. Build quality - well mine has been bought as a project car so I cant really comment as I am expecting poor quality, for its age tho it is not too bad, although its a far cry from todays XK's standards!! Cost of ownership-Not as much as one thinks! I do a nice steady 80mile a day 95% motorway trip to work, and I am currently returning around 27mpg, so it costs me currently about £15 a day in fuel. Maintenance isnt too bad if you dont mind getting your fingernails dirty - although I dread to think what garages and main dealers would want to charge. Parts are pretty easy on the main to get hold of, good base of suppliers, especially in the midlands. Insurance - well for a girl its pennies (this girl early 20s including uk and euro breakdown and uk and euro insurance and cover to drive others cars and 3 points is less than £500 a year!), lads usually a lot higher...
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Everyone looks at you!
Cons: If you cant cope with a proper sized bonnet!

I loved the design but It was a pain in the ass because it was low to the ground. But I had a large straight six so that was fun! I turned head but usually people that were middle-aged or older. Read More

Good Purchase 18 Years Ago With No Regrets
The car has been really good to me over the years. The finish needs some cleaning up, but for an 18 year old car it looks great. I expect it to look a lot better after I do a good cleaning and polishi... Read More

A lovely old thing even at 12mpg. This one has been polished and pampered all it's life, a lucky find that will do very nicely for touring down to Italy from time to time. 2 seats, big engine roof dow... Read More
If You Engineer 50% Of The Jaguar Out Of It, It Becomes An Awesome Car.
Performance- The acceleration sucks because they weren't smart enough to put an overdrive transmission in it and made up for it by putting super high gears in it. Top speed should be OK. It handles ... Read More
