Bought me an XF today

Postby Brake buster » Sun Nov 10, 2019 10:40 pm

well, the X-type is due an MOT in 4 weeks and its going to the scrap yard in the sky ( well, down the road ), it gave me 7 years of good service and was a very competent and comfortable car that did what it said on the tin..

so today i bought this to replace it.......

What happened to the x-type then? Rot bug got it?
Was looking at some xfs recently too, they are getting ridiculously cheap, a lot of car for the money.
1997, 4.0 LWB X300 - Unlucky car but still a daily driver.
1988, 3.6S XJS - Never ending restoration project.
1994, 3.2S X300 - Accident damaged, October 2015. Gone!
1994, 3.2S XJ40 - Long gone.

nothing other than being hit by a bus some months back and the insurance paying out for Cat N cosmetic damage write off, and i couldn't be arsed to keep repairing her after that, lol

so i chopped it in and got £750 for it against the XF.... and a full years MOT and a full years parts and labour warrantee thrown in

Looks good.
I think the estate is the most attractive version of the XF, and of course more practical.

That's a nice looking car. I'd also be interested to hear of your thoughts on the XF, BB. Is it a petrol or diesel?
Enjoy the ride....
