Jaguar S-Type 3.0 V6, MOT Oct 2019, collect Buckingham Now SOLD

Recommended Posts

2000 Jaguar S-Type


3.0i V6 240 bhp 5 speed Auto


97,000 miles MOT 4th Oct 2019


Ex Wurum, Stephen01


Looks fantastic, drives beautifully, smooth, powerful and quiet.


Cams are chain driven no belts


Being pre emission for tax just £155 for six months or £255 for 12 months


V5C in my name, get you home tax



Not so Good


Cassette part of the radio does not work (what a disappointment this was when I got my Morse tapes out to listen to in my Jag)


I have had to top up the power steering reservoir


I have had to top up the header tank with half a Ltr


Headlights aim low, leveling does not seem to work so I added a screw as per youtube to do it manually but this has not solved it.


Headlights need polish


Central locking does not work, one key that operates driver’s door, reach across for the other doors and release buttons for boot and fuel cap that work fine.


A few minor dings and chips on paintwork


Few small splits in interior plastics if you are being picky


No record of last service


Steering wheel slightly at an angle but car drives in a straight line.


I was told when I got it “the air con doesn't work- prob just a regas”



For sale due to the first catch of 2019.


Usual help with collection from local railway station etc


£375 collect Buckingham MK18

There's no guarantee when or even if I'll get my licence back (I have applied) otherwise I would jump at this.  It's a beautiful car (of a type I've never owned!) at a price I would very happily pay.  Dammit.

I also can't have that hugo suit, enjoying loss of sleep and saving for two heads and an auto box*.


* I'm sure it'll be fine*.


The missis knew this was coming. Fortunately I just missed out on a mid life crisis Z3 summer smoker as the bids went too high for it had 'issues'.


Her reaction tonight was... "For fucks sake (insert name here)". Then I proceeded to explain that if we can daily a V8 discovery, this will be a doddle. "Then you've got to get it MOT'd" was her reply... "Already covered" I said. 

Then she asked if it was an auto to which I confirmed it was. "So I can drive it then"? "Yes, yes you can dear... I'm off to make a cup of tea now and have a lie down".


Went well I reckon.

Shits just got real. Spent 2 hours of my life wasting it on looking at insurance quotes. I also found out a new feature... if you dick about with them to make them cheaper have to change details entered incorrectly a few times then you can get 'barred' from buying from that insurer online! Highest over 3 grand, lowest just over 500. That's too dear for someone like me with my exemplary driving record, they're taking the biscuit!


In feeling hard done by I rang my current insurer who's doing it for another £65 over what they were doing the touring at which totals just over 400 quid with national recovery to home. 12/10 will use again.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
      Therefore, funtime!
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 

      99p anyone?
