2000 S-Type back on the road again!


Recommended Posts

Good news among all the maintenance issues. Recently purchased my first Jaguar Stype, 4.0 2000 model. Gorgeous car white leather interior and i guess they call the color "british racing green"? correct me if that is wrong. In any case i love the color and the paint has survived 15 years and looks amazing after a few coats of wax.


She had only 60,000 miles on her when i bought for $5000 , not a bad deal and she runs great. One of the best cars i have had on the highway, soooo smooth. 


Hoping the old gal lasts for years to come. I know the s-type takes grief for its retro look but i think it is unique and will be prized years down the road.

Hi Jerry, and Welcome to the club.


I will look up the colour code, but Phil is quite correct.. British Racing Green is Dark Green, but I do rather like that colour you have.


I have just been "talking" to  another member from the USA  [Las Vegas] who is also an S Type owner.


When the then founder of the Jaguar Marque, Sir William Lyons designed the first Mark 1 & Mark 2 Jaguars, which were the predecessors of the S type he said that it has "Grace, Pace and Space", and the retro look has been to the S Type's advantage since they stopped production in 2008.


Enjoy the Jaguar experience, and I hope you keep posting in the JOC forums.

Hi Jerry.


There are a multitude of colours similar to your car,  and the best was to find the colour is to look up the code.


On my S type the colour code is on the passenger side [left in the UK] just below the "A" frame when the door is open.


If you then google the code you will get the correct colour.

Thanks for the heads up on the color identification. I found out that it is alpine metallic. Looks like they only put it on 2000 models, but i am not sure. I am a big fan of that color now though, looks fantastic.

Hi Jerry,

Your Jag looks in great condition and it's a lovely colour, I too have recently purchased my first S type and absolutely love the drive and retro style, it's turning heads and I did not expect that ;) .
