WBOD Jaguar S-Type For Sale / Roffle Price Drop Sold & Collected.

Recommended Posts



As previously mentioned, this is indeed the ex Wvrum Jaguar, his original for sale post is here,

I’ve nicked some of his pictures from his post.


I’m in for nearly £800 with the MOT & work that was carried out, my aim is to clear about £500 on the sale, this not only limiting my loss, not really a loss because it’s been a bloody blast owning it, but the money also goes towards getting my red herald back on the road.  Black one may well be sold. I’m just having an internal fight with myself about it. And most importantly saves me from Ebay /Autotrader. I hate selling cars this price range. I’ve looked on Autotrader today and cheapest S-Types start @ £890!


Price slash! Single ticket £9.50, Two tickets £17.50, Three tickets £25.50


Great news if you’ve got a ticket/s at the old price as you can up your chances for not much extra outlay.


Still taxed to get you home. Ideally need this gone by the end of the month, if I’m flogging a dead horse here let me know and I’ll chuck it up on Autotrader for £850 and try my luck with the general public.


























Really don't want to sell this as it's by far my favourite car I've owned over the last 10 years. It's a bit of a childhood dream car for me, I had a cut out of one of these on my bedroom wall and vowed to own one one day. While I've not owned it very long I've become quite attached to it, sadly a loss of storage and lack of space & time at home means something has to go. (probably the twingo also  :-(


Just had a brand new MOT, MOT'd until October 4th 2019. Reg is W558 PTD for you MOT pervs. Only advisory was for rear pads new pads supplied for the new owner to fit.


Current Mileage is 95211, which for a car that is 18 1/2 years old is just over 5k per year. I've covered about 1k and it's been a pleasure. Tax is not so bad being a pre 2001. taxed to get you home. I have little in the way of service history just what was passed onto myself in a Jaguar wallet. I've not even looked at it TBH. 


As always there's a couple of things that are not perfect. remembering 18 years old! 


The central locking was disconnected by previous owner, caused a power leak, I've not investigated this as I just use the key to unlock, rear drivers side window is temperamental, sometimes it works most times it' doesn't. I sit in the front though so doesn't bother me. and the air con doesn't work- prob just a regas, again not bothered as I have window open so I can hear the V6 :) few splits on interior plastics but that's me being picky! 


3.0 V6 petrol 240 BHP is a dream to drive. 


I'm looking for £750 with the recent MOT work, prefer a straight sale but would raffle @ £12.50 each. 






Better pic's will be supplied but it's pissing down at the min.

Random ticket for me. I won't win but I'd like to at least try.


I like Black S-Types, I used to admire one when travelling to Dudley from Birmingham that was parked outside a big house with a number of other cars. It had the 'bosses' space in front of the garage door and wore a private plate; 'Y5 JAT'. I once saw it for sale when it was back on its normal plate.


You're not far from me, I'm only by Kidderminster. If space is an issue but is likely to change soon then I have some space here.

I'll have a random number please. This is my first roffle, may as well start somewhere! Also, having never been through the process I might need guidance as to how and when to buy the ticket!!

      1.8 n/a
      90000 miles
      MOT 19.6.2019, but will have new ticket before moving on
      'Patinated' yet very solid; character dent in front wing; never welded, boot floor perfect
      Sunroof sealed, replacement provided
      Great fun on the twisties but good on big roads too; would drive this anywhere

      Short version of a long thread
      Bought Nov 17 with a blown engine
      Put new engine in that was worse than the old one
      Put another 70,000 mile engine in out of a 330D that I saw running this time
      It's got loads of history inc recon gearbox and suspension done
      Drives ok , no warning lights on , 2 keys, one needs a battery , 12 months mot, everything works inc AC
      Needs the blower direction box sorting , it's on your feet, could be 5 minutes , could be 30 mi utes then theres a whoosh as something frees off and it's all working normally
      I had a Google and it's something to do with vents, the box goes misshapen, I read a screw in the right place pulls it back into shape
      Inner rear arches behind the back doors need welding , heated screen only demists the passenger side
      It'll come with the original 18" wheels and wheel nuts as well as the 19" that are on it, but the 18" tyres are close to the limit
      Qualifies for modern classic insurance , adrian flux quoted me under £200 TPFT , I went with A plan at £300 fully comp
      I haven't advertised it anywhere else yet
      Original post below
      I've been looking at Range Rovers for a
      few weeks , in the past as I have a very competent/cheap mechanic I've bought a few projects that have worked out Ok but not a RR
      I've found one with an engine problem, not too far away guy wants shot of it so he'll take £1000 for it , it's a 2003 HSE with 150k on the clock, MOT history looks very good, it's tested until next april and he said it's had gearbox work in the last 6 months
      It's a really bad idea isn't it ,put me off with tales of woe, I'm really tempted to go and see it and risk divorce

      I know this is not the usual car to see on here but Tigerfox Jr has a baby on the way and he is discovering how expensive they are.
      It is a 2003 231 version with the 6 speed gearbox and has only done 34k. I looked at loads before finding this one and it is very nice condition
      Starts instantly, recent new battery and uses fuel at a alarming rate ! 
      Mot until July and would expect it to pass as it has only done 500 miles since the last one
      I have more pictures and it is advertised elsewhere for £1795 and a forum discount applies so £1675,  NOW £1500
      Leather interior, air con, working electric and heated seats, bose radio/cd
      PM me if you want more photos or contact details.
      Car is in South Leicestershire

      Brief background to this:

      I swapped my Jaguar for this car 2 and a half weeks ago as I was desperate to scratch my v8 itch, a client who works in my office bought it last September as a winter hack from his father in law. He was always complimentary towards the jag, I've always fancied a V8, so when he told me he was selling it I asked if he fancied a swapz and he was up for it!

      Unfortunately it's came at the wrong time for me, as my hours at work have halved recently and I really need something with economies as I'm applying for jobs with a commute longer than my current 8 miles a day. A petrol V8 unfortunately won't be suitable.

      So to the car, it's absolutely brilliant tbh. Absolutely huge inside, comfortable ride, sits at just under 2k revs at 70 and goes like a fucking rocket with the foot down. 300bhp from the V8 engine. It's the ultimate barge. Gearboxes are a known issue with these cars, this one is smooth AF. selects every gear perfectly and goes through them smoothly when progressing. It has 103,000 miles on the clock, the car has full service history until 92,000 (mostly dealer) which was in 2009, it's barely moved in the past ten years,a couple of hundred miles between MOT'S each year. It was put back into service last summer, there's receipts in the glovey for an oil and filter change and an engine terraclean. Aluminium body on these cars as well so no rust, it scrubs up very well. 2 remote fobs and a spare 3rd key. Has a parrot Bluetooth thingy which is nearly new, it's been properly fitted, I'll leave it in there. Private plate with comedy RFL lettering included.

      That's the good bits, so what about the bad?

      There is a judder when braking above 35/40 mph. Brakes work well but can feel a pulse under the pedal. Will need looked at.

      Rear brake light warning light on,there is a light out on the drivers side, will get this replaced

      This car has previously had a coolant leak from the reservoir bottle and also one of the hoses, the previous owner repaired it prior to me buying it which cost £££ I believe, as access isnt great in the engine bay. It hasn't leaked since. It used to leave a few drips overnight on the ground, but has been dry the last couple of weeks.

      Tires have decent tread but have two different brands on the front and rear,which is a bugbear of mine.

      Aircon needs a regas m9.

      And that's it really. Car is MOT'd until July, and is located in Glasgow. £1750. I know it's not the usual AutoShite giveaway price but it's a beast of a machine. And I need to recoup my jaaaaaag money. A quick glance on autotrader has rough 3.7's and non quattro 2.8's for over 2k. Any questions please fire away. Cheers

      So for various reasons, mainly money and hopefully, impending engagement/wedding (sshhhh) this is deffo for sale, with a discount for shiters.
      Currently, I am having the alternator replaced, as it basically died yesterday. I've sourced a good quality second hand one from a breaker with some warranty, and it's been checked and proven to work perfectly. It arrives in a couple of days, and I am paying to have it fitted. So the car is currently awaiting this in the garage.
      I've already got an alternative vehicle sourced and don't need any PX's, just a straightforward sale. This was purchased from Colc of this very parish, and has been fantastic, alternator issue aside!
      -130k miles, FSH - stamped book, countless receipts and paperwork, totalling thousands of pounds..mechanically absolutely brilliant. Recent stuff like turbo and other bits, engine is sweeter than your proverbial nut
      -Full leather with heated seats, Sat Nav, Cruise Control, dual zone climate control..all working perfectly!
      -recent full service by me approx 2k miles ago involving oil/oil filter, pollen, air..fuel filter included but I ran out of time and haven't actually had time to sit and do it since
      -rust free! underneath it is fabulous. Seems to have had a very recent new exhaust system too.
      -MOT till 19th November 2019!
      No knocks/bangs/ghosts/borrowers/cockroaches. It really does drive brilliantly. Comes with 3 keys, 4 matching Michelin Cross Climate tyres. Only negatives are it has a ding to the rear tailgate, and theres a small patch of paint that flaked off on the rear bumper thanks to aggressive car wash peoples.
      I'm located in Quinton, Birmingham.
