I dumped my Jag back in early 2012 and have had several cars since then. Currently I own a 300 and I really like this car. It is the 3.5 model, but very well optioned along with a desirable color...

See if you find another car as similar as possible that has actually sold for that price and see if you can find more than one occurrence. I only write this because I was willing to pay what I did...

Actually, no. Cars like the 300 are old W210 platform based (E class). My Mercedes did not have build quality issues worth speaking of. As a convertible it would only exhibit cowl shake on the most...

No offense intended but most of this post is a bit crazy. Being British made doesn't help the reputation of a car in most cases and the XJ220 was a disaster for Jag. How many car companies sued...

My Mercedes was far and away a better car than my Jag could have ever hoped to be. I had such high hopes for my VDP because look at all it had to offer. Instead all I got was the bitter and nearly no...

Well, where some see a shame in that the ins. co. wrote it off, others see a good motor, seats, wood, etc. It may be a total loss to the ins. co. but it is a bounty for the buyer.

LJA6201AD Neutral Safety Switch Position Sensor

Used item I bought from a Jag salvage yard when I thought mine was bad. I never installed it and the car is gone so I have no need for it. Make reasonable offer.

I never got around to updating this. I did buy a neutral safety switch in April of last year but guess what? As soon as I got it the car stopped doing all this. I didn't change anything, it just...

Oh hell no. I wouldn't buy that car. It is tempting being what it is but my current Jag is giving me enough trouble so the last thing I'd do is buy another one that needs work.

If all that checks out that was mentioned above you may have the beginnings of cylinder was. I'm not saying that is exactly the problem but this is how it all started with my '98 VDP.

The straight pipe would be extremely cost effective so I really suggest you look in to that. Your car is a sport model right? Do those have XJR exhaust tips? If not finish it off with a set of those....

And all the things Sean described sound too expensive to me to justify the modest gain. Seems to me the best path to power is to start with the powerful car so getting an XJR and building from there...

It has tried to fire after doing the oil in the cylinders trick but only briefly. I've had the best luck after removing the fuse for the fuel pump. Now I think my battery charger is taking a dump. I...

My diagnosis may not be scientific but the reason it wont start is because it is a Jaguar! I'm having starting problems myself. It is very aggravating.
