Default Maybe a redundant question

Getting bitten by the XKR vert. bug.
Have been thinking of rewarding myself for staying alive all these years with a 2010 and up , low miles, 1 owner, dealer maintained - you know, the whole wish list.

Besides the known sites (ebay, cargurus, cars.com, autotrader, BAT, etc.) where else should I look??

Thanks.

Those are all the sites that even dealers use to find things.

In my area there is a very useful online TV/newspaper company that has a HUGELY successful FREE online classifieds section. Check your local online papers and TV sites for the same. It's called http://classifieds.ksl.com if you want to see what it's like.
Right now there are 80,000 cars listed.
Also well over 600,000 regular ads for items.
In NYC you'd probably have many millions, if such a site exists there.

I perused all those sites but found mine on Craig's list.

I found mine on eBay (last year) but it was 2 miles from my house. DEFINITELY use Autotempest and check all of those sites without working too hard; it checks all the ones you listed outside of BringATrailer and shoves it together.

I found my 00 XKR (9 years ago) and 98 XJR (4 years ago) on craigslist; my 00 XKR having been a car that failed to meet reserve on eBay (very poor quality listing, but good car) and then put on CL. CL is a great place to buy stuff and make dangerous new friends!

I took about 6 months to find mine. I had my list of wants and priorities and searched all of the stand sites that others have listed. I also searched the Jaguar used main site especially for CPO cars. Besides that I selected a group of major Jaguar dealers through out the US and contacted a internet sales person and told them my base requirements . I asked them to contact me if a car that met my base requirements. I did get the usually sales pressure on other cars but stuck with my list. By the way I could have purchased dozens of these cars if I wanted Black , White , Silver or Gray . I ended up with a dealer in NH. who just got a 6,666 mile convert. trade in on a new F-Type. It was IRR which was one of my acceptable color choices. The price was the price with no dealing option other then walking away. I paid $75K in 2014 for a 2012 car that listed for $111K. Not a bargin but it was what I wanted so I put a down payment on the phone and started the paperwork. They CPO'ed the car , send me a copy of all of the dealer maintenance records and had it shipped to my home. I expected the normal Jaguar depreciation and still see it going down today but considering it's my last fun car what is done is done.

Ebay is your absolute best best.
Because those who believe their car is in much better shape than what a dealer or auction is willing to offer them, sell there.
Here is a perfect example. Note how many bids it has on it. It wont last.

And it is so late in the 2010 production run (VIN: SAJWA4EC5AMB38648) that it is almost a 2011!

Thanks everybody. It is as I thought, and I am now seriously looking around. I want the vert., but the coupe proportions are so damn perfect, so hesitating on that.......

Check out Bring a Trailer. it is an online auction site. Occasionally XK/XKRs turn up. the website is Bringatrailer.com.

That car SOLD!!! for 28,000

An opportunity like that comes around once in a blue moon.

See buying a Jaguar is an IQ test, the deserving are handsomely rewarded.

Well, at least, I took the horse right to the water.

On a side note, what $110,000 car that has no issues whatsoever and only 28000 miles, one owner, never been touched by some crappy dealer or auction, can be bought for $28k??

Yeah, good luck with THAT one. That's nearly what I paid for my very-near-flawless 2010 /R convert six years ago.

Yep, I checked and it's sold. 28K. I can't access the listing, anyone know how many miles were on it, more or less? My 2010 XKR vert just rolled over 50K on my long drive.

But I'm curious: how can you tell from that VIN that it's late in the production run? I only ask because I've had issues on and off with mine; I noticed when my Jag dealer prints me invoices for the repair it looks like there's an in-service date of Sept 30 2009. Might mine be one of the first? How could I tell?

Click the original ebay link, then click the small pic that has "Sold" across it...it will briefly show the original advert. I believe it was ~28K miles.
