Have been looking at the classifieds last month or two , not taken plunge yet , aware of various problems with the model and don't want to get a lemon , will keep looking and hopefully get a good one. If anyone on here knows more about what to watch out for regarding recalls , rust on cross braces , leaking diffs , not all of them do this no doubt , then let me know . :mrgreen:

NOTE: Original build spec from Topix no longer available however outstanding recalls, campaigns and service history still work.

Maybe dealer prices are on the way down soon? Motorway just dropped their valuation of mine by £7,000 - not selling anyway, just interested.

Try Arnold Clark - https://www.arnoldclark.com/sell-my-car

Highest valuation to date I've seen for my 66 plate R.

A friend came round yesterday in his silver f type v8 awd coupe and took me out in it and showed me the size of the boot and how things worked , so have a much better idea of the car . I did expect it to be slightly louder on the open flaps exhaust setting , in fact it seemed quite civilized . he booted the v8 down a long empty straight to show the acceleration , impressive .
Difficult to not stare at his f type , a stunner in silver .

Maybe the flaps weren't working on his jag as I wouldn't call it civilized when there open. Especially once you put your toe down :lol:

Just checked the official decibel rating for an f type v8 - 84.4 on full throttle . ( my Mog v8 bmw engined side pipes are 98 - measured by Morgan dealer, ok side pipes are louder and closer and system shorter but i've got used to that as loud )
