I've just inherited a 2005 S type 2.7 diesel from my late father. I went with him when he purchased it and it has special memories of course. Finished in quartz it's covered 33,000 miles is in wonderful condition, garaged and pampered. The interior is Ivory and it has a contrasting trim for the dash and door tops, which is a brown colour. I've tried VIN searches, but without success to find what this contrasting shade is called? I need this for a steering wheel touch up.

The 'TLC' leather co lists two Browns, Medium and Chocolate and I wondered if anyone has had this choice to make before selecting one or the other and could offer advice?

Welcome to the club, Martin.

You have a nice memory of your father  - rather unique.

My s type has an Ivory/dove grey interior and I discovered that the standard trim was barley, and my interior was a factory fitted optional extra.

This could be the case in your father's choice, and it is possible to find out if that is the case in your father's car.  A main dealer should be able to give you that information.  I got mine via a vin decoder   ----  vindecoderz --  which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,

Peter.

Thank you Peter,

I tried the Vindecoderz a few weeks ago, but it denied my car's existence. An American site also told me it was a V8 and yet another was correct but with very brief details. The dealer we got the car from has now ceased to exist and I'll try and find a 'live' one near where I live. I think from another reply and the swatch details suggested therein I have perhaps isolated the colour to 'Antelope'.

 

My regards, Martin

Martin, I have the same problem, and if you google it you will find literally hundreds of posts about this colour and no solution. I contacted Jaguar direct with my VIN but even they couldn't tell me anything other than the main trim colour! I guess the only solution is to select the closest from this list - https://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/Colour_Chart?Jaguar - and see how it works out, something I intend to do one day when I get round to it.

Thank you, I have discovered by matching the swatch on the link you gave that it appears to be 'Antelope'? I've ordered a 50ml bottle and I'm sure it will do the job. It's only whilst looking around that I've noticed my car has a 'mesh' grille, it must have been an extra Dad stipulated I think as I haven't seen many. It could have been a 'bolt on' afterwards I suppose, but I can't remember now how it looked on 'pick-up' day 13 years ago. I should add he had a Mk 5 and a 7, as well as a Mk10. But his and my all time favourite was a MK2 3.8. I've had a few E types myself over the years, but somehow the magic of the Mk2 was special. I think my father felt the same when he ordered the 'S'? I must admit going into the garage now at night to search for something or other these days and seeing the dull gleam of the grille and the lights in the moonlight brings back vivid recalls of past happy days.
