Re: Fraudulent ebay auctions.

They somehow hack a genuine account with good feedback and list a load of fake cars. Most times the seller has no idea the items are listed. Sometimes if you message the seller to let them know, they'll delete all the fraudulent listings (one seller was very grateful I notified them). I've reported ...

Re: XJ40.com at the NEC Classic Car Show

I will certainly do my best to be there, as I've said previously! I usually go on the Friday every year, as long as no work crops up!

Re: XJ40 4.0 1994 "Joker"

Gone for me too. A shame as I didn't get to see the photos yet! Welcome to the group. I've also got a 3.0 S Type and a 4.0 XJ40, so I know exactly what you mean about the differences between the two and I feel the same way. They go very nicely together though, similar sort of power between the two b...

Jags were the preferred choice of bank robbers, back in the day.


Exactly, Jags for the bank robbers, and Daimlers for the bank owners! It's been Land Rovers around our way, a spate of using them to rip the ATMs from the wall!

Me too, Castrol GTX Ultraclean 10W40. It’s a bit cheaper than Magnatec, which is what I use in my S Type but would probably be a bit overkill in the 40 as I change the oil every 6 months (about 1000 miles).

Re: Jaguar Breakfast Club meet

I was there too, sorry I didn’t bump into you, although it was so busy I probably didn’t notice several people I know! Jim Randle’s XJ40 was the star of the morning for me. I also loved the pair of X350 Daimler Super V8s right at the front, and getting to see a Royal Daimler DS420 being restored ins...

Hopefully we can get a few more XJ40s to join it! I look forward to seeing it myself.

Re: Autonomous XJ40

It’s taking more than 5 years from 1994 to implement that on all cars! Also interesting to note that the steering wheel has very similar controls to the S Type (and I think X308) despite being much earlier. Shows how early Jaguar probably started developing those cars. Lucas electronics for autopilo...

Re: Forum archive pictures.

Thanks to Roel and all involved in managing this forum, particular thanks for getting the photos back! It’ll make repair posts etc much easier to follow.
