Hi Jeff

I'm not trying to speak for the administration, as I'm new here myself. But typically the XJ40 badge speaks for a range of years, more than a particular model.
It would be the same as saying the Series3 XJ12 would fall under a different classification than the Series3 XJ6. Both have the same body, interior, etc, it's only the heart of the beast that is changed.
The only exception to this rule is the Canadian V12 VDP, which is essentially a Series 3 XJ12, that carried over until 1992. It has the same body and interrior as the 80s Vanden Plas and Soverign models.

The same is true for the XJ40, whether it has the 6 or 12.

Some folks suggest a more fitting (or should I say less confusing) identification of the XJ40 would be to call it a Series IV, the X300 a Series V, etc.......

Reguardless, you do have a beautiful car to be proud of.....

David is correct. The XJ40 is a body classification, has nothing to do with the engine. Just as the Series 1, 2, 3 and X300 come with either the 6 or 12 cylinder. But you've got the idea. No reason to beat it to death.

I have the original Marrelli caps in stock. See below:

I have the aftermarkets, too. I wouldn't put one on my car though.

Seems to be different schools of thought on this. Some say the correct rotor is more important than the correct cap. I tell people to go Marelli with both. I wouldn't let them go longer than 25K. The spark is so strong it can actually blow the top off the cap.

If given the opportunity to hold the Marelli and the AM units side beside, you feel that the Marelli is probably 3 times as heavy. It's some thick plastic!

Enjoy that car, they are blast. I took one our company XJ12's for a weekend for a car show. What a hoot to drive!

I don't know what happened with the link. Probably something I did. The caps sell for $165.94, rotor $53.57, and gasket is $12.59. If you need, just call me 800 338 5238 x626.
