      Looks pretty stock apart from the tow and battery stickers but it sounds phenomenal
      Wouldn't be my first choice for a trackday car, but good on him! Got any pics of it?

      The coupes & convertibles hold their prices much better than the sedans for some reason. You can buy a 5.0L XFR for $40k these days, but a 5.0L XKR is still $90k or so.

      Even if I could afford an F-Type, I wouldn't buy one, too cramped in the cabin for me. The XKR has pretty much the same cabin space in the front as the XJR.

      Oh yeah, within reason. I'm past the point of pulling gearboxes & shit, but since I have all the factory diagnostic gear, I could do anything, if I wanted to.

      The old man has forbidden me from selling the XJR, so it's staying. It needs some loving so now I can put it off the road to get shit done.

      It's grey Chuck.

      With the wisdom of hindsight, I should have bought one of these XKR's 5 years ago in England instead of the XJR... time to put that right.

                        I think we need pics with the 110 jammed in there when I finally get to come around for a tune lol

                          Will a 110 fit under the door? I got a Disco 4 in with it lowered in access mode.

                          Plates are on, it's ready to go, but I'll need to give it a service before it gets a thrashing.

                              LOL, funny you should mention it... I do have most of the items on your list.

                              Took this thing for a blat around the block, it's hilariously hopeless with the open diff and traction control off, lights up the inside wheel at every opportunity. 4 year old 295/30 Pilot Supersports that are well past their best. I'll be on the phone to the UK tonight to sort out a Quaife LSD. Absolutely no point in squeezing more power out of it until the traction issues are resolved.

                              It's a very different car to the XJR. In the power delivery and in the touchy-feely aspects. The trans is really aggressive, it blips the throttle when you shift down with the paddles which is a bit over the top sometimes. It also shifts down when you jump on the brakes.

                              Needs a reversing camera asap, can't see shit out the back at night, I've got some facelift LED taillights for it which have much brighter reverse lamps, which should help as well.

                              So far so good.
