    You need to look at the cost of running it....things like the price of tyres (probably £200+ each) or replacing the supercharger when the bearings go on the old one (I'm just guessing they have bearings, but probably do...lol).

    What year is it? If it is pre-2000 then you MUST check if the either the piston liners or the engine has been replaced as otherwise the piston bores will be shot cos of the nikasil linings. Beemers of the same era had the same issue.

    Otherwise, fantastic car, 390bhp, rwd, lsd as standard. If the engine is in good nick, change the supercharger oil, Jag Enthusiasts mag has a howto on this, and it will help the supercharger last past 160k miles. A change of the pulley on it can give you around 450bhp. Also get the autobox oil changed as soon as you get it. Google BMW sealed for life or ZF sealed for life and you'll see what I mean. I'd love an XJ but the missus won't have it.

    If I was really mad (and rich), I'd go for a VXR8 and nothing else. Best car in the world. Period.

    Without doubt my next car will be a jag s type r very powerful,good looking and refinement all rolled into 1 but if money wasn't an issue I would have the vxr 8 without a showdown of doubt but money is the issue and the jag is seriously good value when your considering how much bang you get from your buck
