Jaguar XJ8 4.2L Sport HE (X350)


Recommended Posts

This is my 8 that I've had for 6 years. In lovely condition but having to sell due to also having a X351.  The car needs a new home & to be driven regularly. The person who was supposedly coming yesterday to drive/view cried off at last minute! So hopefully a forum member or friend will like a "new" Jag.

Metallic grey (code LHL) with ivory interior and green bits. Has 77K on the clock, MOT till Nov 2017. Maintained regardless of cost and always with OEM parts and in my ownership has had new Oil & filter every 6K and Oil at every 3K. I always use the correct 913D Oil. Box fluid (Lifeguard 6) changed at 56760 miles but filter pan didn't need doing as the old fluid was still yellow. Just replaced the air supply unit and electronic park brake. No suspension issues including leaks, car does not settle overnight. Glove box not delaminating.  Jag service, last service was by expert Jag independent and excel list of the other work I've done. All books, codes and keys. Clayed, polymer sealed and waxed every year so bodywork is excellent except for a few very minor from stone chips. Perfect emissions data on both banks, silent vibration free engine. Returns average 25 mpg (mainly town short runs) and have seen average 38 mpg on the motorway runs. Runs & stops perfectly. The images were taken yesterday

Looking for £5K but open to offers from a Jag enthusiast.

What a clean good looking example. If I had the space for it, I'd rip your arm off for it but that would make 3 Jags on the drive and SWMBO would be getting a new necklace made from my nuts :wacko:

Good luck with the sale but you don't really need luck - it will sell very quickly. :thumbsup:

Thanks Jhdee, yes, you have to hang on to those nuts!

I thought it would sell quickly as well but sadly not. Have it on Autotrader twice now, lost count of the enquiries, but only two shows to view.  First a German from Dortmund ferry & drove all the way over here, spent nearly 3 hours inspecting it, said he couldn't fault it yet couldn't make up his mind! The other a guy from Harrogate, loved it then came back and said sorry "wife preferred a blue one in Manchester". From the pics and description mine looked the better one, cheaper, much more service & preventative maintenance  & less miles. It looked to have sooty exhausts, delaminating glove box and had been fitted with 19 inch alloys but still had the original 18 inch spare so colour over condition. Very strange.

Happy to report that our old V8 has now gone to a good new home in Wakefield. Buyer has a RR Vogue diesel, Jag X type 2.5V6 AWD bought from new & 3 garages so I'm confident that it will get looked after!
