Hi Grant & others, My name is Dave and I'm from down south (Port Noarlunga). I purchased a 2003 S-Type Jaguar 4.2L from Brisbane and it arrived a few days ago. All inspected and registered so I will be taking my wife for a short trip to Victor Harbour today. It is a truely beautiful car and I am very happy. It won best S-type in show at the UK cars meet in QLD back in 2014 so it has been very well looked after and is in great condition. All I need to do is get the saggy roof lining fixed(which I have been told is common) and have it checked for a vacuum leak(again, common I have been told). I am not a mechanic but an old teaching mate of mine named Jan who describes himself as having contracted the" Jag virus" (and has had more Jags than I have had hot breakfasts) says that this model of S-Type is almost bullet proof.. I hope he is correct!
Cheers to all and a big thank you to Grant for starting up this SA page.... Dave.

Looking good Dave.

My suggestion, for longer than I remember, is to change ALL the fluids, NOW, and I do mean ALL.

Trust no paperwork or words, do it so YOU know where it all is, and then work up from there.

I have done this since the MK7 days, way back then, and never had issues with any of them.

Almost as quoted from my new member introduction :

"Hi to all here.
My name is Woody and I live in Adelaide. I'm a 56 years old company owner and technical specialist in the aviation electrical and electronic fields.
After several years of procrastination, I finally bought my first Jaguar a few days ago. I'm now eagerly awaiting it's arrival because it is being freighted over from WA. It's a 2009 4.2L SV8 and has travelled 120,000KM. The previous owner was very fastidious and the service history is immaculate.

My initial projects planned for when the car arrives are to repair the dashboard ripple and install the rear parcel shelf sun blind option.
I'm really happy to have found my local area on the forum and looking forward to chatting with others here on many subjects."

Hi Grant, thanks for adding me to the Adelaide roll call.

i have updated my profile as instructed so hopefully the database will update soon and the changes will take effect.
I can hardly wait to take delivery of this vehicle, probably more than any other I have owned and there's a lot of them.
When I get to take it for a drive. I'll share my thoughts here as a comparison to my previous rides.
