subscribed As I think it is fun to kick tires & spend other folks money!

Recently helped a friend buy a 2015S V8, looked over four states. And THAT was an automatic!

Weird. Asking 84k and listing at 72k MSRP. Vince, I suspect you wonít be getting a finders fee on this one.

Lance, I didn't see any caveats in the offer. I believe it is what was requested, no? No mention of price. It appears to be a base model 340 hp, but with a 770watt stereo?

On the car guru site, the dealers asking price is listed as 84,000 and the MSRP at 72,000. The only way to know for sure, obviously, is to call.

to all concerned
I am aware of a 2019 green convertible three speed that is advertised
by Marin Auto in California. It is advertised but not for sale
It is a replacement car for one of their buyer's who bought
a F-Type and it was a lemon. I have talked to them many times
to try to get the owner to sell it to me. He is not interested in selling it.
So I reach out to our Jaguar community. Maybe you know someone
who owns this color combination. I would be glad to pay the finder's
fee for a completion of a sale. So if you know of one contact me ASAP

Certainly is a tall order. I would guess that there are less than 50 cars in total in the US that will match those criteria (vert , BRG, MT). Iíll keep my eyes open. Let us know when youíve scored so we can call off the search.

You may want to consider looking for any color MT convertible with an interior you like and then wrapping the car. A wrap is likely to cost about the same as the commission you are offering. You'll have more inventory to choose from that way. As others have said BRG wasn't all that common. With the BRG I highly recommend the brown interior. It goes beautifully with the color.

Wonder if that car is Uncle Fishbit’s replacement?

Given the rarity of both the MT and BRG, adding more constraints will make a successful search unlikely. The only upside is that a disproportionate number of folks ordering an MT also ordered BRG. The big downside, is that those ordering that configuration are likely to be avid traditional enthusiasts unlikely to sell the car anytime soon, particularly in light of the discontinuation of the MT.

dhlaman, if you are looking for something that specific, why not just order it? I'm willing to bet it will not take as much time as think it would.

I don't believe they're accepting more orders for MT cars
