Spotted a 2000 Jaguar XJ8 Sovereign last week in a forecourt with Â£1495 emblazoned across the screen
Found it was a 4 litre 1t68k on the clock with all the toys, despite massive searching the only fault were;
non functioning drivers side arse warmer
minor surface rust on the o/s/r wheel arch
dropped headlining held up with glittery pins
I ask what service history? but it cannot be found.
Return a week later, "you found that history yet, else I may make an insulting offer"
"what like!" relies dealer.
" well no history = spare parts price so 650-700"
Hmmmmmmph exclaims graham the dealer. I Left details
1h later ok defo no history but I will take 700 for it not warranty
Job is a good un! Pick it up on Monday
Planning for New chains and tensioners unless they are metal when I get the cam covers off and a fluid change
