I had to let my Daimler 4 Ltr. go, as I was only getting 9 miles per Gal. around town, but it was lovely to drive, I still miss it.  :(

Wow, that's got to be expensive to run. How much to fill up the tank?

Not that bad, much better than say, a Range Rover ;) these cars are much more fuel efficient than the old Jags.  I put about 65 worth in when we bought it to fill it up. the biggest cost of owning a car is depreciation, this car is safe from that now! 

Other costs, insurance 310 with agreed value, road tax is 220 for a year, no big deal there!  It's a car for pleasure, fun, we have a smaller car for everyday. Expensive things could happen, but might not if looked after, the risks of being a petrol head!  ^*^0

Me too--I had one the same, used to have to find a parking place where I could stuff the bonnet under a bush in the old Asda car park, or someone would take a swipe at the boot ! Know what you mean about the driving Quiggs. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I find that hard to believe.  :o  &shake&  A Range Rover Sport 3.0 does between 30-33mpg. I suspect you'd get between 20-25mpg at best out of the Jag, and that's with the wind behind you and Mrs ME pushing...  :laugh:

Nice reg plate! But that's an oil burner  ;D. I have already seen 30mpg, the original figures were
Urban 19.8 mpg, 56mph 36.7mpg, 75mph 29.1mpg (auto box)  :P  :laugh:

I saw a Maserati with a personalised DR plate driving up Kings Drive.  Is that yours too?      ^*^0


As I was driving along the Prom in Llandudno there was a rally of Porsche cars on the Promenade.  Very impressive they were and worth a bit of money too.   :)

Convert it to runs on LPG.
Not a difficult job on that engine.
Plenty of room in the boot for the tank too.
Then you can use it without worrying about the cost !

You didn't think that was really my car, did you?!  :laugh: The font on the number plate would be illegal, to start with.

More of a car to be photographed in rather than photographed from :)
