So me and Mrs W have just got home from our little run down to Cornwall (sadly in the trusty Megane) jag spotters at the ready. Slim pickings!
A nice silver X300 with penta alloys being trailered through Scotch Corner, and finally on the last leg of our trip a lovely Westminster blue 40 in the Cairngorms which was heading towards Perth broke up the monotony of the A9, Reg' was F779SUV I'm 99% on that, fishtank lights and obviously the lovely early style indicators. Delighted to see one in action!

First proper drive out today since the MOT on Monday and in 8 years and i get waved at by two other Jag owners. :D :D :D

First jag passed me on the A3(M) driving away from Waterlooville towards Portsmouth, not quite up on my later jag models but i think it was a X300 with partial reg number XJR 12.

Second one was a red XJ40 sovereign Heading out of Pagham on the Pagham road. L reg.

Best regards
Gary.

You drove down Pagham Road and didn’t notice the slightly shabby G plate Daimler XJ40 in Grey...? The red one was likely to be my ‘one that got away’. I took a test drive but missed out on buying it due to having to wait a few days for a family member to hear back about a job that was going to impact our commuting needs. It was bought by someone nearby and I see it every week!

Hi MrScruffs,

Ah yes, i have seen the G plate Daimler but never thought to mention it. I did see the one pictured in your post when it was for sale at Pagham car sales, it didn't hang around long.

For the L reg one i saw yesterday, it wasn't that one. The one i saw i had seen a few days earlier and was parked up at B&M in Shripney Road, a lighter metalic red with magnolia interior piped in red. :D

Best regards

Another couple of recent spots from me. One in Switzerland and the Dutch car street parked in Milan and I spotted it again later in the week parked up in Sirmione for a couple of days at least.
