Well money is sat there in the bank burning a hole.

Searched Auto trader this morning as per usual and when i filter to what i want there is only 2 cars.

One is stupid price the other has half leather seats 9Never seen that before)

So the waiting continues......

It will be a garage queen and only come out in the summer so not to worried as long as i can find one before say April.

On a seperate note if you are a Autotrader trawler get the autotrader price checker extension for your browser, its awesome

Rather than trawling you can get it to email you when a car fits your search criteria by saving a search setup.

Took me 9 month to find mine, did all the usual auto trader, pistonheads etc.
Like you I had it narrowed down to colour and interior spec Inc engine. Was actually driving to view a car in Wakefield, when the one I bought appeared on auto trader in Manchester so diverted over to see it.
A lot of those cars I looked at re still on autotrader today almost a year on. So take your time and get exactly what you want, it's outhere you just have to wait for it to turn up.
What spec are you looking for?

Good advice - also took me a few months to find the right car.
I always try and buy a car thinking I will never be able to sell it - forces me to be sure it’s the right car for me and not to worry about resale value.
A big factor for me was how far I was prepared to travel - it’s no fun driving 3 hours each way to be disappointed.
Try looking at plenty of cars that are local to you to better understand how condition and spec varies etc even if the spec is not for you.

100% agree with jagseven, you need to go and see the cars and get a feel for what you are looking at.
I was on my way to Scotland to view an approved jag when they pulled the plug after some intensive questioning on condition.

If you're driving your old Jag to upgrade, it's fun regardless! ;)
