Hello all.

Just joined the other day. In the market for a 2005 XK8. The information posted in this forum has been very helpful. Many thanks to all who contributed. I hope to find what I want very soon.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome. And many thanks to all who have posted the wealth of information so that I know what questions to ask when looking at a prospective vehicle. At this point, I am changing direction a bit. I have my sights on a 2007 XK convertible. With the knowledge I have gained here, I feel well equipped to ask the right questions. We shall see what happens.

Hey Steven,

I have an F type and am just up the road from you in Raleigh around the north hills area. You can usually catch me in Cary Tuesdays and Thursdays.

So the 2007 XK convertible I was looking at fell through. Liquid Silver with Black interior with 37,000 miles. Garage queen in excellent shape. For sale in Cary NC. She was asking $18,500. We settled on $17,750, contingent on a pre-purchase inspection. Inspection revealed badly worn front tires, TCM leaking, thermostat problem, weak battery and lower control arm bushings needing replacement. I offered $15,500, but she said no. I will keep looking.
