Not sure where to post this but.....

Toying with the idea of swapping out my 2002 Xkr convertible for a good XK8 4.2 Coupe. Love my car but a convertible being left out is not great as I now want to use it as a daily.

2002 4.0 XKR Convertible 89000 miles. Brand new MOT (this week) Recent spend on suspension and bits (3K)--Lovely condition---Aberdeenshire based

Any thoughts welcome

Yup----On reflection probably not the best idea I have ever had..

tommac.  I fully understand your predicament.  My last 6 cars have all been convertibles of one make or another, the last 3 being series 3 BMWs. I had to move to "Sheltered Accommodation for the Elderly"  (a posh euphemism for God's Waiting Room :yahoo:).... which did not offer covered space for my cars. The hoods of  last three cars were always covered in bird droppings and tree sap and despite using copious amounts of "Renovo" .... a superb product by the way, there was only just so much I could do to renew the hoods.  I decided enough was enough and am now seeking a coupe. Eventually it just was no longer cost effective to keep the soft tops.  I hope your quest is successful, tommac .

ok Jim --it happened

2005 2.5 V6 80000 miles.Lovely condition.  Owned it 5 years ago and saw it advertised on Gumtree and thought it would be fun to buy it back for little money
