I've had the pleasure of owning this amazing (rare colour) XJS for last 18 months and I'm reluctantly selling her due to a house move...

I purchased her from Justin Banks (Tonbridge, Kent) in late 2017 and the previous owner spent over £20K in a 'bolt / back to metal bodywork' upwards restoration (inc new roof) for the car. It then stood for a couple of years when I found her... in the original 'Silver Birch' metallic paint (actually looks light gold) with 'Doe Skin' coloured interior and around 48K original miles on the clock. 

I've spent another £5k getting all the rubber (bushes, hoses, belts) replaced at 'Kent jag Centre' as well as, new heater matrix and all the important things to make it reliable daily driver. I've serviced her twice a year there too. Kent Jag Centre also upgraded the exhaust to a 'simply performance' wider-bore stainless steel system (improving performance significantly (easier rev, better acceleration, better sound!!!).

 
MOT just passed with no warnings etc. so another 12 months trouble free driving!

The wheels have had their rims polished by 'old timer wheels' in Germany and I replaced (but have kept) the original stereo with a new pioneer bluetooth head unit with 4 speakers + small sub to improve volume and quality of audio when driving with the roof down at speed. I also swapped out the leather steering wheel for a 'moto-lita' wood and chrome one. 

There are a couple of small blemishes on an otherwise perfect car...
- Driver's door a few paint chips and the hinge needs adjusting as the door is opening too wide
- Passenger window regulator is catching, meaning the window only goes down 50% 
- Driver's seat lumber has just started to come un-stitched along piping

I have a file stuffed with nearly 100 pages of receipts, tax discs, history and Certificate from Jaguar Heritage showing the car has matching number engine, gear box, chassis etc 

I've owned a few Jaguars and none create the interest and admiring looks and comments that this one does. It's ACE!
