Re: Rare Manual Black on Black

a limited slip diff, that normally featured on the xjr and V12 models. better "on the limit" traction. nice idea, but i cant see many jags ever using it. but i still want one, obviously! dunno if your 89 would have it. am guessing it may have been on this fabled sport pack options list, po...

Re: Rare Manual Black on Black

yes indeed, and a rare price to match. am sure we would all have one of those in our 10 car dream garage, if we could? Black/ black was definitely more common choice in the x308 range, as far as i can see. i guess jag owners started to see sense by the late 90s/00s. i like looking at cars like this ...

Re: Rare Manual Black on Black

the idea is to try run them both, with limited milage insurance/ low usage/ weekend machine. but thats theoretical, as its Sorn at the moment. will check out all the spec soon and report back

Re: Rare Manual Black on Black

get shot of the 3.2s. thats a bit harsh. you dont like it i take? well spotted on the rims anyhow. lets hope that the sport pack is all there after all this speculation. also, do you know if it would have had a badge on the back/ side wings to denote the sportpack? as currently it doesnt. but that m...
