Hello To Everyone


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Andrew here from a little coastal town called Donaghadee in Northern Ireland. 30 Year Old & Have just bought my 1st Jaguar. Always liked them growing up as a family member bought a brand new X-Type 2.2d Sport Saloon and i fell in love with it back then and have took the plunge and bought a 2009 X-Type 2.2d S Estate 155bhp Manual.

I got a fantastic deal on the car that i couldnt refuse. 1 Mature Jag Enthusiast Owner From New. Full Years MOT. Full Jag Service History. 4 New tyres. Just Fully Serviced. Both Aux Belts & Tensioners Changed. Full Valet & Detail inside and out. all for less than £2k. So i couldnt let it go. Only slight downside to it there is 136k on the clock. But it looks like a car with 50k or less on the clock. You think its a good deal ?

Drove car. All is tight. Suspenion good. Drives Straight. Quiet. And started from dead cold on first turn of the key. No Smoke. And Rock Solid underneath. Including Sill's !!!

Only thing i would like some advice on is the Timing Chain. I read they are good for 200k if Services well. Which this one has been and I always give motors full Service (Oil's & Filters) every 10k. So do you think i should be fine for a while yet ?

I have added couple of pics here to show you what I have purchased.

So here I am, 30 Years "Young" Driving an old mans Jag 🙂 .

So Hello to everyone again and I look forward to becoming a Club Member soon and chatting with you all on the Forums.

Hi Andrew.....welcome to the Club

The car looks superb and you seem to have got a bargain there!
The good thing is that the check list you had seems to be complete, especially as it seems to have been cherished by the previous owner.

Mileage is not a big problem and it has got there by its merits as a good car and having been maintained correctly.

Timing chains should not be an issue if the oil and filter has been changed frequently and quality parts and fluid fitted.

Good to have you onboard

Cheers . Trevor
