    Car Ramps?

    Have you seen these bad boys :) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ADJUSTABLE-CAR-RAMPS-CAR-LIFTS-NOT-HYDRAULIC-CAR-RAMPS-CJAUTOS-CR02-/331790286218?hash=item4d403dfd8a:g:VsIAAOSw7NNT0ok2
  2. My first S Type 4.2 V8 (Previous Jaguars over the years: 1987 XJ6, 2002 X Type 3.0 V6 Auto, 2005 X Type 3.0 V6 manual estate) Not keen on the style of wheels, multispoke Mercury's might be an alternative Had Powerflow stainless end cans fitted and a lovely V8 low burble is produced
  3. Bought a header tank today from a local car dismantler so all go for trying the sensor, although when I had a quick look today I see the two wires are bared in a tiny bit as if someone had put on a scotchblock at some point Also scored as one of their S Types had a complete mesh grill from a 2000 S Type and got it for a tenner
  4. I use an Optimate trickle charger for my Harley as alarm slowly drags the battery down so I leave it connected all the time its sitting

    This is my pride and joy at the start of our relationship
  6. Turns out the fault has been on the dash for the last two years and the last owner just put a bit of tape over the warning light As she does not show any signs of distress I will deal with that as we go along, just been to get new rear tyres (Nexen 8000) and get the tracking checked on Turriff Tyres new 4 wheel alignment machine but my rear stabiliser arm bushes are shot so not much point in doing alignment until I replace the arms, then I can address the coolant fault and anything else that rears its ugly heid
  7. Only had my S Type for a few weeks and slowly getting to know it, had a set of Powerflow end cans made and fitted and am very happy with deep tone that lets the v8 burble out, also fitted a K+N air filter element one problem though, there is an alert on the computer screen "Coolant level low" but looking at the header tank the level is spot on and the temp does not go over the halfway, could it be the sensor or worse ?
  8. Plans in place as we have a garage in Turriff that makes up stainless systems, just need to compare some prices of full cat back systems and the back boxes like Adamesh
  9. Pictures at the beginning of hopefully a wonderful relationship
  10. Many thanks to everyone for the kind welcome, pictures will follow once thir off my phone and thanks Joe exhausts are a big priority for me as I do like to hear the V8 burble
  11. Hi new 03 Jaguar S Type 4.2 V8 owner here, owned two X Types and an XJ before but my latest purchase is the best for me as I missed this particular vehicle two years ago after test driving it, yesterday I happened along to my friends car lot and it was sitting there beckoning to me so I couldn't let this beauty slip through my fingers again, and after a rear wheel bearing replacement I'm hoping for many miles happy cruising
