Up for sale is my British Racing Green, Ivory Leather 4 litre XK8 Jaguar.  Its a 1998 model and has a private plate PGW 199 included in the sale (The plate cost £1600 including VAT when purchased a couple of years ago).  Original plates also included in the auction.  When Jaguar brought out this model it was a hark back to the days of the E-type and you can clearly see the influence that their iconic E-type had on the XK8.  Also, this was the colour to have according to the review when this car was first put on sale to the public. 

I have spent thousands of pounds on the car and will now list everything I have had done:-

Cosmestic work carried out by TL Jaguar, Wokingham:-

  • Twin straight through stainless steel exhaust pipes which replaced the two standard rear silencers & give the car a nice V8 burble
  • Stainless steel chrome front grill which looks great
  • Front & rear 25mm wheel spacers which brings the wheels out to the arches & gives it a better look
  • Original 17" wheels replaced with 19" Jaguar Alloys which are the perfect size for the car
  • Wheels were refurbished a couple of years ago but do have a few scuffs again now

Total cost of this work is £1095.80  (receipt available dated 14-06-2011)

Mechanical work carried out by TL Jaguar, Wokingham:-

  • Removal & replacement of front suspension lower wishbone bushes
  • Removal & replacement of front suspension V mounts
  • Removal & replacement front anti-roll bar droplinks
  • Removal & replacement of off-side front metal brake pipe
  • Removal of front suspension sub-frame to carry out work on chassis which included fabricating new panels & welding, then replacement of front sub-frame
  • Removal & replacement of all 4 road springs for new lower road spring kit
  • Removal & replacement of rear sub-frame A bushes
  • Removal & replacement of rear anti-roll bar droplinks & D rubbers
  • 4-wheel alignment carried out
  • Full Gearbox service carried out
  • Removal & replacement of air con condenser & air conditioning re-gassed

Total cost of this work £3452.31 (receipt available dated 16-05-2011)

Total cost £358.00  (receipt available dated 14-06-2011)

Oil has always been changed since I have owned the car, around every 3000 miles using Mobil 1 fully synthetic 5W30 engine oil, this oil has always been used in the car since day dot by TL Jaguar whenever serviced.  Oil filter & sump plug was replaced after each oil change.

Overall condition of paintwork very good, I have had the car paintwork re-sprayed on certain panels when needed so little or no stone chips etc to see.  It has two or three small shopping trolley type dinks here and there on the body but nothing major.

Interior good condition with everything working that should.  Usual wear on drivers seat bolster, did have this re-conollised at one point but the wear does show again after a while.  Other than that, interior very nice, ivory leather, beige carpets, burr walnut dash.

Obviously this is not a showroom vehicle being as its 15 years old now, but a future classic.

Genuine reason for sale - my kids made me buy a speedboat so need to put it in the garage & my mentally fast motorbike (Suzuki Hayabusa) is apparently all the boys toys that I need, still, can't wait to cause havoc with the speedboat.

Car is a pleasure to drive, always has been, and as you can see I have spent lots on it in the 2 1/2 years I have owned it and sad to see it go.

Mileage coming up to the 100k now, but still goes like a rocket, very retro looking XK8.

The car is currently on SORN and in the garage, MOT Feb 6th 2014. Advisory on last MOT was rear tyres close to legal limit (mileage was 99623 at time of MOT) and rubber bush on front upper suspension arm had wear but not excessive movement.

Last full engine service carried out by TL Jaguar, Wokingham on 28/03/2011 at 89,362 miles.  Current mileage is 99,961.

  • 08/03/1999 at 1918 miles - Grange of Exeter (Jag main dealer)
  • 06/01/2000 at 4085 miles - Swain & Jones Ltd, Farnham (Jag main dealer)

  • 28/03/2011 at 89362 miles - TL Jaguar, Wokingham (Jag specialist)

Stamped service handbook all present, along with original leather Jaguar handbook.

Has now done 10,000 miles since last service although I have changed oil approximately every 3000 during that mileage so another service probably due now.  I've only covered this 10000 miles in the 2 1/2 years I have owned it and obviously have spent all the above monies in that time aswell.  I will change oil & filter prior to winning bidder picking up the car.
