Jaguar S-Type 2005 3.0 lpg

Hi all,

Jaguar s type 3.0 V6 auto, s.e, 2005 facelift, 186k in blue, Sport lookalike (more details below), mot until 25/02/17, full leather/heated seats, cruise control, touch screen/sat nav with CDC, voice and bluetooth, powerfold mirrors, powerwash headlights, polychromatic mirrors, heated front screen,parking sensors front and rear,
18" mercury alloy wheels with good tyres (also have std wheels).Powerflex bushes fitted to front wishbones, new rear discs and pads. A.C regassed 3 mths ago. Sunshades fitted to all rear windows.

It drives 100% and everything works as it should but does have a gearbox fault (more details below). I am still driving it every day and will be for the next 2 weeks.

Lpg conversion - I fitted a multipoint lpg system 2 years ago, it was then fully looked over by a professional, the tank takes about 70 litres which gives about 300 miles and it's in the spare wheelwell. A petrol fuel return is fitted which all jags/landrovers need. It also had a new lpg ecu and all injectors fitted about 10 mths ago. I also took it to a lpg genius who totally remapped the lpg. The cats have both been gutted (they are not needed for lpg cars) and both rear 02 sensors have extensions fitted which stops fault codes popping up. It runs great on gas.

Sport lookalike details - colour coded grille fitted, aftermarket rear boot spoiler/lip, all chrome around bumpers/windows has body pinstripe tape. Shocks/springs were fitted 2 years ago from a low mileage 3.0 sport, the front springs were shorten 20mm to level out the car due to the weight of the gas tank. XS exhaust tips.

Bad points -
Bad crack on front screen (heated screen still works).
Bodywork is only fair condition with a dent on driver's door and other scratches (i will post more pictures later)
Brakes I think could done with a fluid change.
Auto box fault - it slips gears and comes up with 'gearbox fault' P0783 shift malfunction. This only happens with light throttle changing from 3-4, I have been using it evey day like this because I have found then in slow traffic if I keep it in 3rd gear until I can speed up and then back in drive it change ok. I drove to London last Sunday and was driving for over 5 hours and not once did the fault happen by doing the above.
I have also noticed there is oil over the right hand exhaust pipe from rear of gearbox backwards so it looks like the sleeve could be leaking.

I will post more pictures then I get chance to wash it.
I still need the car for the next 2 weeks min (up to x-mas).

Price is £600. I know the full lpg is worth £300 and the wheels £250 so If it does sell (it will go on ebay over after x-mas) I will break it.

The reg plate will be removed.

Hey Simon,

What colour are the heated memory seats, and how is the interior condition? Plus, what is the paint code? Looks similar to mine!

As mentioned in my PM, tentative interest, but in no rush etc.

Cheers, Russ

      Jaguar is commemorating the end of its internal combustion sports car lineage in 2024 with an exclusive limited-edition F-TYPE inspired by two iconic 1960s racing E-types
