Hi I recently bought an 02 reg s type r only last week noticed fluid dripping on my garage floor which I think is transmission fluid taking in to an independant on tuseday to investigate dreading to hear what it is going to cost so I would look out for leaks around the engine and transmission but I guess it depends on which model you going to look at

Check sills, The car has plastic covers over the sills and metal underneath can rust prematurely.

To be honest I've just give it a test drive but only a very short one, I'll try give it a long drive tomorrow. Car seemed a little load but that might be me coz the last 4 years I've had a Lexus ls430 which are whisper silent. But she is a lovely looking jag and in ex condition gear change didn't seem very smooth but as I say I'm used to Lexus which you only know it's changed gear by drop on rev counter.

Yes, mines a 2004 car. the covers are held on by plastic clips, easily removed but no doubt a few of the clips will snap and need replacing, no big job, clips easily got.
