1999 JAGUAR XJ8 3.2 LWB,FSH.
Having used this car for a number of days as my daily transport,I can report,it is a very nice place to be! Probably one of the best value Jaguars at present,it is quiet,powerful and very luxurious.In metallic,Sherwood Green with full cream leather,it presents in very nice condition,inside & out.
It comes with a fully stamped service book and has currently covered 103k miles.
Believed,one of just 771 long wheelbase examples,it drives extremely well,no unpleasent knocks or bangs from the suspension,the V8 3.2ltr engine very smooth,powerful and smoke free and the steering & brakes very sharp.To sum up smooth and very refined.
Serviced every 6000 miles by main Jaguar dealers or Jaguar specialists it has also,recently benefitted from a set of 4 new tyres,along with a full,4 wheel alignment check and adjust.
It has also just had a full gearbox service with TES Transmissions,Westbury,using the correct Mobil LT71141 gearoil,as used by Jaguar.As a result the gearchange is quiet and very smooth.
The bodywork presents in very nice,rust free condition,the lovely Sherwood Green metallic paint still with a very nice shine.The interior is near immaculate,with the woodwork and leather in beautiful condition and the carpets showing next to no signs of wear,even in the drivers footwell.
All the electrics work as they should and it comes with a 6 cd,auto changer in the boot,telephone facilities and stereo controls on the steering wheel.
In the history file is a complete set of manuals for the sound system,phone system,maintenance schedules,service records,security system,drivers handbook and vehicle care booklet.
This era of Jaguar benefited from a much better build quality than the earlier cars and these saloons have surely gone as low as they will go in terms of value,prices should be on the rise in the future.
Please inquire for further details,any inspection is welcome.
